Copa America Futbal is HERE!

Argentina Travel Package It’s a common saying that whenever the Boca Juniors are playing “futbol” in the Bombonera Stadium in Buenos Aires, the whole city stops to watch. Here’s one more reason to book an Argentina travel package and visit Buenos Aires: Watch the upcoming Copa America Futbol Tournament. This July 1-24, the Copa America will take place in packed out stadiums across Argentina, including Buenos Aires, Mendoza, Cordoba, Salta, and La Plata. The Copa America has the claim to fame of being “the most important football event in Latin America.” And that’s not mere puffery. The Copa has its roots in the early 1900s, when South American countries Uruguay, Argentina, Ecuador, and others, organized football matches strictly among themselves. It wasn’t until the 1990s that the United States and Mexico were invited to play. Argentina and Uruguay hold 14 titles each, followed by Brazil with 8, and Peru and Paraguay with two each, and Bolivia and Colombia each have 1. If you are planning to book an Argentina travel package this July, make sure to check out one of these exciting Argentina football games – it’s a great way to experience the passion and competitive spirit of Latin Americans. Who do you think will win the title this year? Let us know in the comments section below! Check out our Argentina travel packages, such as a tour of The Very Best of Argentina.
