The vast plains or “prairies” located in central Argentina from the Atlantic coast to the Andean foothills are called The Pampas, means "flat surface." The Argentine Pampas are a dry, barren zone with great saline areas and sandy deserts in the west (La Pampa province) and a humid zone in the east (includes part of Buenos Aires province). This territory has long been glorified in songs and folktales. This is where wheat and sunflowers grow.

Only here can you see Gauchos galloping on a horseback with the power of the wind through the vast steppes or herding sheep in Patagonia.

In the Pampas, there are several authentic villages and towns where you can see many monuments of the colonial heritage of the country. It is worth visiting to get acquainted with the traditions and culture of the local people, their way of life, try dishes of national cuisine, and learn many interesting things about rural life. In addition, Liahué Calello National Park offers birdwatching. Pampas’ animals are also a must while here. Parts of the Pampas are noted for their vineyards, especially in Mendoza Provence.

The area may be visited year-round, depending on what weather you prefer—crispy and cold winters or hot and humid summer. The most pleasant season is spring (October-December) and fall (March-May).
