Travel tip for Argentina tours: Order a cappuccino

The first and probably last thing you should probably do during Argentina tours is order a hot cappuccino from a local cafe. What's so great about these drinks, and what sets them apart from Italian or French varieties? First off, they're typically served in a clear glass so you can see the layers of espresso, milk and foam as they separate. They're also topped with a dash of cinnamon or chocolate, and some cafes go the extra mile and serve it with a scoop of delicious vanilla gelato.

If cappuccinos aren't your thing, you can still experience a totally unique cafe culture during a tour of Argentina, whether you want a simple shot of espresso or a submarino for the kids. This classic Argentine drink doesn't come with any caffeine, but is a rather a perfect treat for hot chocolate lovers who want just a hint of cocoa in their frothy milk drink.

Unlike Western cafe cultures, which center around fast service, Argentina's coffee scene is substantially mellower and encourages travelers to take a moment to relax and absorb the day before heading out on their tour.
