Wander Argentina was first conceptualized with the idea to start a bilingual newspaper called ‘¿Que Onda?‘
That was almost15 years ago and right around that time, it became apparent that the rough and tumble newspaper business was quickly being overshadowed by the internet and that the world wide web was becoming the most useful and utilized platform to provide up-to-date travel information.
A few (ok, lots!) of wrinkles later, Wander Argentina, founded in 2009 is the culmination of many years of learning, living and traveling throughout Argentina.
As Seen On
Wander Argentina’s Mission
Our mission is to provide the most up-to-date information about traveling in Argentina for visitors and foriegn residents.
Our entertaining features offer an ‘insider’s view’ into Argentine culture and are aimed to help inspire people explore the country.
All of our hotel, restaurant and business recommendations are personally selected by us and independently reviewed.
If we cover it, it’s usually because we like it and if we don’t like something, we’ll let you know that too.
We aim to promote socially and environmentally responsible travel.
Our readers and clients are knowledgable and thoughtful travelers who like comfort, but not necessarily excess.
They spend wisely on travel, entertainment and making once-in-a-lifetime memories, and not so much the latest fashions and posing for the ‘Gram.
