Argentina

Argentina is one of the most diverse countries on the planet: ice and penguins in the south, the tallest mountain of the Americas in the mighty Andes, dense rainforest in the northeast and the arid, high altitude salt deserts of the northwest. Although it has been populated for 30 000 years, this country´s history was mainly influenced by European colonial powers in the 16th century and waves of immigrants hoping to make a fortune in the 19th century. In its recent history, Argentina has suffered a dictatorship and several serious economic crisis.
