Is Argentina, South America a good place to visit? What would you recommend?  Any advice?  Is it safe to visit Buenos Aires?

Buenos Aires is a nice place to visit, although as Patricia said, you should be careful with your belongings, for example I wouldn't recommend you to walk around with a big camera that could draw attention. I would also recommend you to visit Mar del Plata (I live there), it is a touristic city here in Argentina with a lot of people during summers and during winter holidays. Other touristic places are Mendoza, Cordoba, San Martin de los Andes, Bariloche, Ushuaia or you could go north and visit the Iguazú falls in Misiones.

I've been to Argentina twice already and I've  spent a couple of days in Buenos Aires on one of those occasions. I enjoyed it a lot and it seemed quite a safe destination to me. I'm no native though so i can't tell you for sure how safe it is. I'm going again this next winter to a place called San Martin de Los Andes. It's a ski resort and I'm very much looking forward to it!! I've been to Bariloche before which is also a ski station and I loved it. It offers all the snow and ski attractions combined with some outings in Patagonia as it has a little bit of both. You can go horse riding in some Patagonian landscapes or take a boat ride through this beautiful lake nearby. All in all it's a great destination to go.

Hi there i have a friend from Argentina, i've host him in Italy and he invited me many times there but i did't have the chance to go.

Buenos Aires it's a crowded place just like all the big metropolis, i know that locals are not very friendly with tourists but doesn't mean you won't have a good experience. The city is full of international restaurants, shops, there are many cultural events every day :)

My friend also live in El Calafate (Patagonia) for few months during the year and he recommend me to visit this area, expecially the glacier area, i have seen the pictures of stunning landscapes :)

Argentina is a beautiful country, it has many things to offer, not only is Buenos Aires the tourist spot. But if you plan to go there, the recommendations would be that you do not go out to the street very early, when there is not much movement of people, that you do not take cameras or cell phones in the street or all the time .. it is not bad to look around to see if you feel something strange. keep hidden money always and separate the one you are going to spend at that moment .. so you avoid taking out your wallet every time you want to buy something.

It is a dangerous country, but not all people had a bad experience and that is because they take their precautions, do not go thinking that at the moment of going something bad is going to happen to you ... like in almost all countries, something bad can happen or not.

Your comments and observations are all valid.  I speak Spanish very well and have been all over the world.  I am also a photographer.  I would like to visit Argentina to work on my new book on landscape photography.
