From the author, Gerry Leitner: Argentina! The name conjures up visions of the pampas, gauchos and tango.
But Argentina has much more to offer: Argentina is home of the highest mountain in South America, it shares with Brazil the mighty Iguazu falls and in the far south it has some awe-inspiring glaciers. But did you know that the north-western part formed once part of the great Inca Empire? In fact one of the main Inca trails coming down from Bolivia traverses the north western altiplano region of Argentina
linking many pre-columbian settlements right down to the Province of Mendoza. Many of which are still waiting for the arrival of the archeologist. Add to this the many national parks, beaches and backed up with a very modern infrastructure and you have got the makings of a wonderful travel destination.
This book was written with the intent to give the reader - whether backpacker or discerning five-star traveler - the most complete view of this fascinating tourist destination. "Travel Companion Argentina" was not tied to an accountant's budget: no effort was spared to bring to my readers the best available information. I have covered at least 90% of all places where either there is something of tourist interest or there are tourist facilities. I can safely say that my bus information tables are the most complete: listed are services to even small, distant places: if there is a bus, frequency, fares, and traveling time are indicated. Back ground information includes history, economy of provinces and towns, notes on local dishes and type of food served in restaurants. Fishing, skiing, white water rafting, mountaineering, bird watching and how to contact specialist tour operators by phone, fax or even e-mail, all are covered in this book. The book weighs 12oz; hardly excessive for the amount of information it contains.
So become an "armchair traveler" first reading what my book has to say about this wonderful travel destination and then if you feel that this is what you want to see personally, proceed to make your travel plan. Yes, with my "Travel Companion Argentina" you can make an almost perfect travel plan taking into consideration your time available - and of course the money you wish to spend. And don't forget to take this travel guide with you in case you want to change some travel plans on the spot.
I hasten to add that Argentina with its climate ranging from the tropics to subantarctic is a travel destination all year round.
