Patagonia

Patagonia
Patagonia in Argentina reaches from the Andes in the west, to the Atlantic in the east, and south to the Arctic Ocean. Because the area is so vast, there are huge differences in climate and, of course, things to do with your kids. Traveling in the northern part, there are volcanoes and dense forests where the puma and the condor live. On the plateaus are the sheep and cattle ranches, to the west, high mountains and ancient glaciers. Go south to the tip of Argentina, where Magellanic penguins play on the beach.
