I visited the ‘Little Switzerland’ of South America

People love drawing comparisons between Switzerland and other places around the globe.

Take, for example, Jim Thorpe, a town in Pennsylvania that’s been deemed the “Little Switzerland of America.” There’s also Uruguay, which in 1951 was declared the “Switzerland of South America” by a New York Times article because of its banking regulations at the time.

More recently, however, some in the travel industry have crowned another town the “Little Switzerland of South America” — this time for its scenic views, architecture, and European feel. I visited San Carlos de Bariloche, located in Argentina’s Patagonia region, earlier this month.
