Beautiful, bold, and vivid, Argentina is a an ideal destination at this time of year, when it is summertime in the southern hemisphere, and the temperatures are warm with flowers blooming everywhere. The Argentinian people are friendly and welcoming, with a passion for life that is contagious for those who visit.
We begin and end our adventure with a total of 6 nights in one of the world’s most stylish cities, Buenos Aires - a city full of European sophistication with wide boulevards, old mansions, French style architecture, hundreds of theatres, parks, restaurants, cafes, and museums. There are small charming neighborhoods like San Telmo, with its street flea market and La Boca - an artist’s colony with brightly painted houses and dramatic street performers.
The remaining 10 nights of our holiday will be at the beach resort of Mar Del Plata, where the climate is oceanic warm and mild all year round. This charming Argentine beach town is off the main tourist route - ideal for a relaxed and casual holiday.
We will stay 10 nights at the 4-star NH Gran Hotel Provincial in Mar del Plata, part of an iconic beachfront complex. The hotel enjoys a city centre location, and from here it is easy to reach the long white sand beaches, pedestrian shopping streets and popular casino. Facilities at the hotel include two heated indoor pools, a spa with sauna and massage services, and a gym. The hotel was originally built in 1946 by the celebrated architect Alejandro Bustillo and the elegantly decorated guestrooms maintain much of the original character. Guest rooms have two beds or 1 king bed, air conditioning, cable TV and complimentary WiFi.
