Imagine the thrill of sailing the wild seas a century ago as you step aboard Fragata ARA Sarmiento. Built in 1898 as a training vessel for the Argentine navy, the frigate could hold more than 300 crew in its heyday, during which it served on 37 training voyages. Since its retirement in 1939, the ship has been painstakingly restored, showcasing the lush interior that housed many of its officers over the years. Bring the kids along, and let them act out their pirate fantasies as they run around the ship's deck.
