US actor John Travolta is in Argentina hoping to buy land, according to local media reports.

Travolta arrived in the country with his family still mourning the death of his 16-year-old-son, Jett, who died in the Bahamas of a seizure in January.

Staying at a luxurious Buenos Aires hotel, local media reported the two-time Oscar-nominated actor is looking to buy land in this vast Latin American nation.

If true, the "Saturday Night Fever" and "Pulp Fiction" star will join Italian businessman Luciano Benetton, former CNN founder Ted Turner and fellow actor Tommy Lee Jones -- who owns 25 hectares in a polo retreat in the Argentine pampas.

Travolta, who landed on Tuesday in Buenos Aires on a private jet, has not given interviews since the death of his son, but has communicated with fans through his official website.
