Be amazed in this vast and ancient land, a pearl of South America
Due to its extension, 2 780 400 km² (1073518 sq miles), Argentina is the second largest country
in South America, forth in the American continent and eighth in the world.
Its continental territory occupies most part of the southern part of the continent and limits to the north
with Bolivia and Paraguay; to the northeast with Brazil; to the west and south with Chile and to the east with Uruguay and the Atlantic Ocean.
The Argentine Republic has a population of about 40.1 million inhabitants (2016) and it is a result of both the direct descent of immigrants and the mingling of those immigrants with natives and the original inhabitants that lived in the country before the Spanish conquest. Argentina is considered to be an immigration country, because of the massive number of people who arrived in the country, especially those coming from Europe, mainly Italians, Spaniards, Germans and Polishes. Nowadays, Argentina is still receiving new immigrants from Asia (North Korea, South Korea and China) and Latin America (Paraguay, Bolivia and Peru).
The official language in Argentina is Spanish.
However, it is possible to communicate in English at the three, four and five star hotels.
