Home People As we are Achilles Heel

Achilles Heel

Our beaches are our Achilles heel: it's the only thing that Brazil “wins” us in, and that hurts us.

As we are

In Argentina we boast that we have all the  landscapes  of the world in one country, and that's really true. Jungles, waterfalls, forests, deserts, glaciers, mountains, plains, lakes, rivers and, of course, beaches. Every point in our country overflows with  beauty  and amazes with its variety, but — while we love our  beaches  and these have a great tourist influx during the summer season — we know they are not our strong point.

The bonaerens   coast  has no white sands or blue waters. It is practically impossible to get into the  sea  and go out at the same height of the beach we entered and, when we decided to return after swimming for a while, the last meters we spent begging that a wave does not come from behind and turn us on the shore.

Our  beaches  are our Achilles heel: it's the only thing that Brazil “wins” us in, and that hurts us. Wind, sand with snails, lots of waves, cold sea. And all, we enjoy them with our rituals, with street vendors, picaditos at sunset, divers when refreshing, mate with churros and castles on the shore. So and all, nothing nicer than to arrive with your feet full of  sand , hard hair by salt and heart full of sun and  beach .
