With everything from ultra-modern boutique design hotels to traditional South American haciendas and wineries, the huge range of accommodation options means that you can enjoy a different experience every night if you wished, and the different character of Argentina’s different regions, from the Art Deco sophistication of Buenos Aires, to the Spanish colonial architecture of Salta and the Black Forest character of Bariloche, mean that a holiday in Argentina can be like several holidays in one – you can enjoy the beach and snow-boarding in just one trip if you wish.
The wide range of possible holidays and experiences helped make Argentina a natural choice for the company’s next destination, according to the Managing Director of Real World Holidays, Daniel Clarke: “We already knew from our operations in Brazil that there was a real appetite for Argentina among our customers and we were already used to adding on a few days in Buenos Aires or a wine-tasting tour in Mendoza to our Brazil holidays – we just needed to build up the team’s expertise to offer a full, personalised service in the rest of Argentina as well.”
Although Argentina isn’t a mass-market destination – at least for the moment – it has a number of specific draws that make it an important destination for many different groups: football fans are always keen to see a match in Buenos Aires, with teams like Boca Juniors and River Plate being amongst the biggest teams in the world; the Welsh colonies in Patagonia are a big attraction for tourists from Wales; the fly-fishing in Patagonia attracts anglers; and it’s probably the only country in the world that can be said to specifically appeal to polo players!
Because Real Argentina Holidays specialise in providing tailor-made holiday itineraries which allow people to personalise every single day of their holiday, from the places they visit to the hotels they stay in, the time spent in researching Argentina was vital to be able to speak in detail to customers about their holidays. To return to Managing Director Daniel Clarke: “we need to be able to tell customers which is the hot tango show in town at the moment, or which trek in Patagonia would be best for a given month, so our experience is that you can’t skimp on the research”. With the months of painstaking research now behind them, Real Argentina Holidays are confident that they can start to help everyone in the UK and beyond enjoy this exciting, passionate and dramatic country.
