Cueva de las Manos, Río Pinturas  
The Cueva de las Manos, Río Pinturas, contains an exceptional assemblage of cave art, executed between 13,000 and 9,500 years ago. It takes its name (Cave of the Hands) from the stencilled outlines of human hands in the cave, but there are also many depictions of animals, such as guanacos ("Lama guanicoe"), still commonly found in the region, as well as hunting scenes. The people responsible for the paintings may have been the ancestors of the historic hunter-gatherer communities of Patagonia found by European settlers in the 19th century.
Iguazu National Park  
The semicircular waterfall at the heart of this site is some 80 m high and 2,700 m in diameter and is situated on a basaltic line spanning the border between Argentina and Brazil. Made up of many cascades producing vast sprays of water, it is one of the most spectacular waterfalls in the world. The surrounding subtropical rainforest has over 2,000 species of vascular plants and is home to the typical wildlife of the region: tapirs, giant anteaters, howler monkeys, ocelots, jaguars and caymans.
Ischigualasto / Talampaya Natural Parks  
These two contiguous parks, extending over 275,300 ha in the desert region on the western border of the Sierra Pampeanas of central Argentina, contain the most complete continental fossil record known from the Triassic Period (245-208 million years ago). Six geological formations in the parks contain fossils of a wide range of ancestors of mammals, dinosaurs and plants revealing the evolution of vertebrates and the nature of palaeo-environments in the Triassic Period.
Jesuit Block and Estancias of Córdoba  
The Jesuit Block in Córdoba, heart of the former Jesuit Province of Paraguay, contains the core buildings of the Jesuit system: the university, the church and residence of the Society of Jesus, and the college. Along with the five estancias, or farming estates, they contain religious and secular buildings, which illustrate the unique religious, social, and economic experiment carried out in the world for a period of over 150 years in the 17th and 18th centuries.
Jesuit Missions of the Guaranis: San Ignacio Mini, Santa Ana, Nuestra Senora de Loreto and Santa Maria Mayor (Argentina), Ruins of Sao Miguel das Missoes (Brazil)  
The ruins of Sao Miguel das Missoes in Brazil, and those of San Ignacio Miní, Santa Ana, Nuestra Senora de Loreto and Santa María la Mayor in Argentina, lie at the heart of a tropical forest. They are the impressive remains of five Jesuit missions, built in the land of the Guaranis during the 17th and 18th centuries. Each is characterized by a specific layout and a different state of conservation.
Park Narodowy Los Glaciares  
Parque Nacional Los Glaciares, Park Lodowców – park narodowy w argentyńskiej części Patagonii (prowincja Santa Cruz), o powierzchni 4459 km kw. W obrębie parku znajdują się trzy duże lodowce (Perito Moreno, Upsala, Viedma) i wiele mniejszych, częściowo także dwa duże jeziora polodowcowe (Argentino i Viedma). Najwyższymi szczytami parku są Fitz Roy (3375 m n.p.m.) i Cerro Torre (3133 m n.p.m.). Na terenie parku znajduje się największy (poza strefami polarnymi) lądolód na Ziemi - Południowy Lądolód Patagoński (Campos de Hielo Patagonico Sur). Zajmuje on 25% powierzchni parku. Park narodowy stanowi dużą atrakcję turystyczną, przyciągającą m.in. alpinistów i turystów górskich. Punktem wypadowym jest miejscowość El Calafate nad jeziorem Argentino. Tylko północna część parku jest dostępna dla ruchu turystycznego, reszta to ścisły rezerwat. Z Los Glaciares sąsiaduje park narodowy Torres del Paine położony na terytorium Chile.

Península Valdés  
Península Valdés in Patagonia is a site of global significance for the conservation of marine mammals. It is home to an important breeding population of the endangered southern right whale as well as important breeding populations of southern elephant seals and southern sea lions. The orcas in this area have developed a unique hunting strategy to adapt to local coastal conditions.
Quebrada de Humahuaca  
Quebrada de Humahuaca follows the line of a major cultural route, the Camino Inca, along the spectacular valley of the Rio Grande, from its source in the cold high desert plateau of the High Andean lands to its confluence with the Rio Leone some 150 km to the south. The valley shows substantial evidence of its use as a major trade route over the past 10,000 years. It features visible traces of prehistoric hunter-gatherer communities, of the Inca Empire (15th to 16th centuries) and of the fight for independence in the 19th and 20th centuries.
