There's a population of about 45,801,000, and the official money is the peso. The name of the country makes reference to the richness of the land. What defines the country is its huge diversity in terms of inhabitants, as well as its geography. There are unlimited activities, from glacier excursions to scenic hikes, to breathtaking natural wonders.”

    Ferrer said Argentina's many unique offerings are internationally recognized. “The Iguazú Falls…were recently voted one of the New Seven Wonders of Nature."

    Visitors will enjoy Argentina because the people are friendly and helpful, and the lifestyle is free of rules. Free health care and education for all is accessible to both citizens and visitors.

    Argentinian culture is very family focused. “Family and friends get together to celebrate anything happening, even small things." Ferrer said because of the family-centered culture “You will never, ever be alone.”

    Ferrer’s talk will feature photos of Argentina’s natural wonders, food, folklore, music and dance.
