Wildlife and Marine Life

See a Wealth of Wildlife in Megadiverse Argentina

Argentina is the eighth largest country in the world, dominating the southern part of Latin America. Its regions range from the mountainous jungles of Yungas to the subtropical Paraná Plateau, the alluvial plains of Pampas, the rugged mountains and ice fields of Patagonia. In every one of these areas, a fascinating array of species has evolved, uniquely adapted to the ecosystem. This makes Argentina one of the very best destinations outside Africa for varied wildlife watching, whether you’re on land or at sea.

The best maritime wildlife watching is off the southern coast in the Tierra del Fuego. Around these islands swim half a dozen different species of whale, plus dolphin, sea lion, and seal. Often you’ll spot them from the shore, but to get right up close a boat trip is definitely in order.
 
On land, the subtropical forests of the north are home to big cats like the jaguar, ocelot, and puma. There are primates here, too and endemic treasures such as pink fairy armadillo and Patagonian opossum. You’ll find maned wolf and pampas cat in the central grasslands, and llama, guanaco, and vicuna in the western mountains.
