Pack. You'll also receive Log-on details and password for our Volunteer Extranet
where you'll have access to all the documentation and information which we've put
together to facilitate preparations for your adventure! Your Project Co-ordinator
for your country will liaise with you throughout the arrangements process, as well
as while you're on your placement and on your return home.
The documents you'll have access to also include a Country Factfile, Safety Guide

we can to make your stay one that you'll never forget. This is a truly awesome,

As with all our destinations, the culture and heritage is different to what you're

be borne in mind. Self-reliance and independence are highly appreciated in all
our destinations and will help you to make the most of this wonderful opportunity!
LOCATION | SIGHTSEEING:
The romance of Argentina takes one's breath away. From the northern deserts to the
southern Andean Cordillera, from Iguazú Falls to the magnificent desolation of Patagonia,
Argentina's geography is varied and stunning. Argentina is geared up to thrill -
from nights tango-ing in the chic quarter of Buenos Aires to gaucho riding in the
grasslands of the Pampas.
Cosmopolitan Buenos Aires:
Buenos Aires is one of the most exciting cities in Latin America. Tango was born
here, restaurants serve all manner of world cuisines, bars play the latest music,
cafés spill on to the streets and nightclubs allow dancing throughout the night.
This fabulous city is renowned for its sophistication and has a surprisingly European
feel about it. BA is reminiscent of Paris and its tree-lined avenues and frequent
plazas have a beguiling, faded elegance.
Downtown, the Plaza de Mayo is the traditional focus of activity. Nearby Avenida
9 de Julio is popularly known as the world's widest thoroughfare and, with its nine
lanes of traffic, is truly a pedestrian's nightmare! Avenida Santa Fe is the most
fashionable shopping area.
