Argentina is the second largest country in South America and is the largest among Spanish-speaking nations. The secret is out: with its gorgeous landscapes, amazing cities and lively culture, Argentina is a traveler's paradise. Nature-lovers will revel in the country's mountain peaks, amazing waterfalls, scenery of the lush Lake District – with its glorious lakes and white-tipped mountains – and Patagonia's glacier-carved landscapes and painted Andean deserts. City slickers will adore fabulous Buenos Aires, full of opportunities to learn Spanish and dance the tango and interact with dynamic and beautiful porteños (Buenos Aires locals).
Argentina has an impressive history in international basketball as well. Argentina is the only national team in the FIBA Americas zone that has won the quintuplet crown: FIBA World Championship (they won the first edition in 1950), Olympic Gold Medal (2004), FIBA Diamond Ball (2008), FIBA Americas Championship (2001 and 2011) and Pan American Gold Medal (1995). They have also won the South American Basketball Championship 12 times, as well as many other youth championships. The Argentine basketball team was also the first to defeat a United States national team with a full squad of NBA players. Due to the series of good results since the beginning of the 2000s, Argentina reached the first position in the FIBA Men's Ranking at the end of the 2008 Olympic Games.
Buenos Aires is the capital and largest city in Argentina. It is located on the southern shore of the Río de la Plata on the southeastern coast of the South American continent. Built by Europeans, this vibrant city overflows with energy and brims with attractive residents called porteños (people of the port). The food is fresh and innovative, the shopping ranges from designer labels to street hawkers, and nightlife will keep you entertained throughout your basketball tour.
