The Agua Negra Deep Experiment Site (ANDES) is a planned deep underground laboratory in the soon-to-be-built Agua Negra tunnel between Argentina and Chile. It will offer about 4000m$^2$, 70000m$^3$ underground space for frontier science experiments in basic science, with a strong focus on Dark Matter search and Neutrino physics. A specific large section of the laboratory will be dedicated to geosciences, and smaller cavities will be available for multidisciplinary studies. Being located in the deepest portion of the tunnel, with 1700m of overburden, it will be both a deep and large laboratory, with a direct horizontal road access. Being in the southern hemisphere, it may play a crucial role in Dark Matter and Neutrino physics and aims to be a key player in the exploration of the Dark Side of the Universe.
