Next month, we have a long weekend in Argentina, and many of us in Buenos Aires will leave the city. 

These are some options where you can go:

 Near Buenos Aires:

You can take a train to Tigre and be there in about 50 minutes from Retiro train station. Or you can go on a tour with a tour on catamaran along the Delta, as in the image above.

If you prefer to take a bus and go south of the country, you could visit Bariloche with its lakes and mountains, or Salta and Jujuy with their particular scenery. Or you can even choose Cataratas del Iguazu, the beautiful falls up north in the border with Brazil and Paraguay.

Should you go far from Buenos Aires or remain near, you will always have the opportunity to practice your Spanish.
