Argentina may be known for its love of tango and football. What is not public knowledge, is their love affair with rugby. The national side are aptly referred to as the Pumas; they are both cunning and crafty. This trip will suit teams searching for opponents with a different style and tactical game.
Buenos Aires is often called the “Paris of South America,” for its soaring architecture and rich European heritage. But the city and its people, known as porteños, are a study in contrasts: European sensibilities and Latin American passion; wide boulevards and cobblestone alleys; steamy tango and romping rock and roll; sidewalk cafés and soccer fanatics; bejeweled ladies draped in fur coats and children rummaging through garbage for cardboard scraps. Buenos Aires, which sprawls over 78 square miles (202 square kilometers) and has a population of about three million, is a patchwork of distinct, fascinating communities, from the frenetic downtown and working-class tanguero neighborhoods such as La Boca and San Telmo, to wealthy districts such as Recoleta and trendy Palermo, to middle-class barrios such as Belgrano and Caballito.

Rosario (Spanish pronunciation: [roˈsaɾjo]) is the largest city in the province of Santa Fe, in central Argentina.
Arising in the 18th century as the “Pago de los Arroyos” hamlet and honored with the designation of “Ilustre y Fiel Villa” (Noble and Pious Village) in 1823, Rosario became a city in 1852, taking its name from the Virgin of the Rosary. That was the beginning of a period of rapid growth for Rosario, which developed into the second most important city of Argentina and one of the most booming cities of South America in just a few decades.
Rosario is the largest city in the Province of Santa Fe. It is situated in the center-east of the country, on the right bank of the Paraná River, equally close to all the regions of Argentina. There are tollways that link it to Buenos Aires (300km; 186 miles), Córdoba (400 km; 249 miles) and to the city of Santa Fe (150 km; 93 miles). Rosario is a strategic point in the South American Bi-Oceanic Corridor (pathway) that extends from the Atlantic (Brazil and Uruguay) to the Pacific Ocean (Chile) and in the Paraná River Waterway, joining the vast coastal region of Argentina (Provinces of Misiones, Corrientes, Entre Ríos, Chaco, Formosa and Santa Fe) and the Northern part of the country, which borders with Bolivia, Paraguay and Brazil. The city is, therefore, highly important within MERCOSUR (Southern Common Market).
With a population of approximately 1,200,000, the city of Rosario is at the heart of the Metropolitan Area of Greater Rosario, which encompasses Villa Gobernador Gálvez, Pérez, Funes, Granadero Baigorria, Capitán Bermúdez, Fray Luis Beltrán, San Lorenzo and Puerto General San Martín.
It is characterized as “Humid-Pampas mild,” the hot season being from November to March and the cold one from June to the first half of August. It rains more in the summer than in the winter, the average rainfall per year ranging between 800 and 1000 mm (between 31 and 39 in). Via Rosario Tourism
