Argentina is a huge holiday destination these days: from the Europe meets Latin America vibe of Buenos Aires to the brutal nature of Patagonia and the Andean lure of the North of the country, there's plenty for every taste. But even though there is a growing green scene in the country (check out our green city guide of Buenos Aires) and many initiatives in eco tourism (like Anda Travel), an organization of the info was lacking.
Enter Travelnative, a website that lists severa accommodation alternatives in different parts of the country along with activities and shopping facilities.While most of the eco-loding alternatives are usually high-end expensive venues, Travelnative has three different options to search for budget, middle-range and luxury places.
Some interesting listings include the Red de Turismo Campesino, a network of 50 families that offer their homes and attention to travelers to gain an additional income and improve their communities; and the Eco Pampa Hostel, where the local Green Drinks is held every second Tuesday of each month (Disclaimer: this writer is one of the organizers of the event, though has no particular participation in the hostel operations).
Travelnative also offers a service to design a tailor made trip for anyone at no cost, and their website has basic information about the different areas of the country to help you decide where to go. More on their website.
