Argentina celebrates May Revolution Day each year on the 25th of the month. It is a very important time, not only for Argentina, but also for South America as this liberation arose during a very important moment in the revolt against Spanish rule. Spain lost control of Buenos Aires and would eventually lose control of the entire region in South America.
Today it is a happy holiday celebrating Argentine culture with parades, music and of course great food. Learn more about the history of Argentina Revolution Day and most importantly - where to celebrate it!

Manizales is known as the heart of the coffee region in Colombia, and while that may be true there is so much more to this town than simply coffee. Located in central Colombia, it is a university town and has many attractions you shouldn't miss. While it doesn't have the night life of Bogota or Medellin it is perfect for spending a few quiet days strolling the streets and drinking fantastic brew.
Check out our guide to Manizales, Colombia.
