Argentina Travel FAQ’s

Thinking about an Argentina trip? Here’s a list of frequently asked questions we often hear from our guests. Visit our Argentina Vacation Planning page for in-depth Argentina travel tips.

When is the best time to visit Argentina?

The best time to visit Argentina can be any time of the year depending on the interests and preferences of the traveler, whether those be wine tasting, hiking, skiing or cultural events. For those interested in wine tasting, we recommend visiting Mendoza, Argentina from March through May, when the vineyards are bursting autumnal colors. For those interested in hiking, visit Argentine Patagonia anytime between mid-September to mid-April when the temperatures are suitable for trekking and other outdoor activities. For those interested in cultural events or city sightseeing, we recommend traveling Argentina in the spring (September – November), when the beautiful lilac Jacaranda trees have bloomed in Buenos Aires, making city sightseeing that much more beautiful.

Keep in mind that Argentina and the rest of the Southern hemisphere’s summer are from December – March, with winter from June – August. Depending on the desired regions, the seasons will influence the availability of accommodation, cultural events, and activities. For example, from April to late September, much of southern Patagonia closes for the winter. To discern which season is best for you, continue reading to learn more about the varying regions, and recommended times to go.

Is it safe to travel to Argentina?

Yes, traveling to Argentina is safe! However, as in any other country, there are pockets where crime concentrates. However, just like in a large city in your home country, your travel generally does not take you to those sections of town. Additionally, your guides know where to go (and where not.) As in any large city in the world, be aware of pick-pockets, including the latest version: grab-and-flee motorcycles. So stay away from the curb!

When should I go to Argentina?

When you should go to Argentina largely depends on where you are heading: Patagonia in Autumn, March & April is beautiful: their equivalent of the Indian Summer. The Andes around Salta and the North from April through November. Iguazu Falls from September to the end of May and last but not least: Buenos Aires and the Mendoza wine region year-round.

As a vegetarian, can I travel to Argentina? I have heard everything is meat.

Oh, yes! While it is true that the tradition of ranching huge herds of cattle has left a significant impression on the cuisine, the Italian, Chinese and Middle Eastern immigrants have brought a huge variety of vegetarian dishes. Vegan cuisine can also be easily found in most cities but may be more difficult in the countryside.

On any private food and wine tour of Argentina, chefs will accommodate any kind of diet.

How big is Argentina?

In terms of size, Argentina comes second to Brazil in South America. Argentina is approximately 1/4 the size of the United States or Europe. The appearance of distance can be deceiving when traveling in South America.

That is why, apart from absolute numbers, it is essential to understand the amount of time it takes to fly to different parts of Argentina.

For example, flying from Iguazu Falls in northern Argentina to Ushuaia in southern Argentine Patagonia will take you nearly a full day. Most flights connect in Buenos Aires, so calculate two hours from Iguazu to Buenos Aires, then 4 hours to Patagonia. Buenos Aires to Bariloche at the foothills of the Andes is 3 hours by air. Of course, that is why a Travel Expert best arranges all flight logistics and travel planning in Argentina.

What is the population in Argentina?

A quarter of Argentina’s 44 million population lives in the capital of Buenos Aires. The majority of the community is a blend of white and mestizo, meaning white mixed with indigenous peoples. The white European immigrants stayed mostly around Buenos Aires and Cordoba, whereas most indigenous peoples live closer to the Andes. Between the mix of European-flair and indigenous history, Argentina is the perfect place for a historic tour.

What is the currency of Argentina?

The official currency of Argentina is the Peso – the Argentine Peso that is. Chile, Colombia, Uruguay, and four other countries also call their currencies ‘peso’ – they are not the same.

Many Argentines know the exchange rate to the USD, and this is the most easily exchanged currency. EUR and GBP can be converted in many places too. Argentina is the only country in South America where you can easily exchange Uruguayan Pesos and Brazilian Reais- just not coins and small bills. However, credit cards are by far the most convenient form of payment to use when traveling to Argentina.

When traveling with local guides, it’s useful to. have some cash to hand for tipping.

Do I need any special vaccinations for Argentina?

In general, you do not need any special vaccinations for Argentina. You can compare Argentina in many ways to Europe. Only in the North, in the subtropical climate, you might consider yellow fever vaccination. However, as of 2019, the yellow fever vaccination is not required.

For the most accurate information on vaccinations visit your local travel and health clinic or preferred doctor.

What is the language of Argentina?

Official language is Spanish, spoken by almost everybody. However, indigenous languages like Guarani, Wichi, and Qom among others are still spoken. Currently English is the first foreign language everybody in Argentina learns in school.
