The book is peppered with ideas for getting behind the scenes to study the Argentine language, celebrate the tango, wine-taste in some of the world's most famous wineries, and more. Insider Tips from National Geographic and local experts show you where the locals go. Mapped walks include a self-guided ramble through BA's colonial core; drives range from the amazing landscapes of the Cafayete-Cachi Loop in Salta Province to the spectacular Sierras del Cordoba.
