The various towns dotted across the Pampas region of Argentina offer adventure travellers to chance to submerge themselves in the country's cowboy culture.
Frances Stanford, a freelance journalist writing for Helium, said that San Antonio de Areco is a good place to learn about the 'gaucho' culture, with a special museum dedicated to it.
She recommended Mar del Plata for those who want to spend some time relaxing on a beach, although she added that it can become quite busy during summer months and suggested Miramar may be more appealing to those who want a quieter time.
Ms Stanford also stated that a trip to La Plata is worthwhile.
"Climb the Tower de Jesus at the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception where you will feel as if you are close to heaven and be able to take in a glorious view," she concluded.
The word 'pampas' is a Quechuan word meaning 'plain'.
