For city lovers (and tight schedules) – Buenos Aires City
Stick around before or after ISEPEP meeting! Buenos Aires is a city of immigrants and as such it has many facets
The cultural offer of the city is vast. Museums, theaters, music, parks, football, stunning architecture, and a thriving nightlife. Try dancing tango at a milonga
If you consider yourself a culinary tourist, then you’ll certainly won’t feel disappointed by the large gastronomic wonders the city has to offer. From the classic “parrillas” (bbq) for meat lovers, to the Italian pizzerias and cafés of the early European immigration, and even the Peruvian cuisine product of the latest immigration waves
It is a wonderful city to explore by bicycle and if you have time to spare you can take a day trip (or half day) to Tigre’s delta for a boat ride or some kayaking.

Misiones is the perfect option for those who have low cold tolerance. A subtropical forest crossed by geographical faults such as the famous Iguazú Falls and the not-so-famous but amazing Moconá Falls. Besides the natural extravaganza the subtropical forest has to offer, you can visit of ruins Jesuitic Missions, eat some fish at the Paraná river shore or cross over to Brazil and Paraguay in less than a minute.
