If you are coming from Western Europe, South America or North America, you probably will not need a visa to enter the country for tourist purposes. In any case, check the immigration official website where you will find the visa policy worldwide to know your country's specific case.


According to the Global Peace Index 2020, Argentina is one of the safest countries in Latin America. However, as in any other part of the world, it is important to be cautious when travelling. In case of an emergency, you can call 911 from all over Argentina. We also recommend you to book these phone numbers: ● 101 - Police ● 100 – Fire Brigade ● 107 – Medical Emergencies


The Argentine peso is the currency unit for the country. You can exchange money at the airport or at official bureaux de change. Credit cards are also accepted in most places of business throughout the country. And the best thing about it? Amazing landscapes, unique gastronomy, strategic accommodations with the best services, safe and accessible transport, and a favourable exchange rate. Here's a fact: a bus, underground or train ticket costs only 30 cents, a good quality wine in the supermarket costs 3 dollars, and eating the freshest crab on earth costs only 10 dollars.


You probably think Spanish is the correct answer. Well, in fact the answer is correct, but here we also speak Rioplatense Spanish, a dialect that spread along the Rio de la Plata Basin, and whose most particular characteristics are the voseo and the famous Argentine cantito (vocalisation). Here we do not speak of tú (you), but of vos. The intonation is unique and very famous, it must be said. This is surely one of the first differences you will notice when you arrive, compared to other countries in Latin America and Spain.

But it doesn't end there. Besides the voseo, Argentina has a wide range of everyday slang called lunfardo, a picturesque adaptation of the language with expressions from Italy, Spain and other European countries, thanks to the migratory flows of the 19th and early 20th centuries.

Argentina has incredible natural and scenic wonders that make travellers from all over the world fall in love with the country. The truth is that the time you need will depend on your priorities and the places you want to visit.
25 nature routes, one of the 7 Wonders of Nature and 11 World Heritage Sites. The numbers prove it: Argentina is a land of outstanding natural beauty. The country has 2,780,400 km² of jungles and forests, ice masses dating back thousands of years, the sea, starry skies and snow-capped mountains. Given such a diverse and privileged combination, the country is divided into six geographic regions:

1. The Litoral is formed by the provinces of Misiones, Corrientes, Chaco, Santa Fe, Formosa and Entre Ríos. Among its most outstanding features are the power of water in the Iguazú Falls; the richness of the second most important wetlands in South America, the exotic environment of the Bañado La Estrella; the absolute relaxation in the thermal springs of Entre Ríos; the Impenetrable Chaqueño, and the rural tourism of the Ruta de la Leche (Milk Route) in Santa Fe.

2. The North (or as Argentines would say, el norte) is a land of contrasts and scenic paradises. In terms of geography, this region embraces the provinces of Jujuy, Salta, La Rioja, Catamarca, Santiago del Estero and Tucumán. And how does it amaze travellers? With its enchanting folkloric traditions, the countless colours of the Quebrada, the immensity of the Calchaquí Valleys, the height of the Tren a las Nubes (Train to the Clouds), the brightness of its salt flats and so much more.

3. Patagonia is home to landscapes beyond any kind of expectations. Here you will find one of the most important glaciers in the world, turquoise lakes, mountains, volcanoes, seas and even the very End of the World (Ushuaia). Patagonia is formed by the provinces of La Pampa, Neuquén, Río Negro, Chubut, Santa Cruz and Tierra del Fuego, as well as Antarctica and the South Atlantic Islands.

4. Córdoba has a unique spirit. As soon as you land here, the music plays and the unmistakable joy of the locals is contagious. You will see plenty of streams and sierras, horseback rides and sunsets.

5. Buenos Aires is the largest and most populated province in the country. Its territory reaches the Argentine Sea coast in the Atlantic Ocean. With its plains and grasslands, it is the heart of the country's agricultural and livestock farming area. The city of Buenos Aires is located in this same tourist region, but has a different political boundary. It is the city with the most bookshops on the planet, countless theatres and 160 museums. This is the capital city of the country, but also the capital of colour, rhythm and liveliness. No wonder why it is ranked 35th among the best cities in the world for tourists.

6. Cuyo lies on the Andes Mountains and extends as far south as the Pampas Mountains. A place with plenty of scenery. It attracts international and local adventurers and is home to Aconcagua, one of the highest mountains in the world. This region includes the provinces of Mendoza, San Juan and San Luis.
Argentina is famous around the world for its varied geography and climatic diversity. Visitors will be surprised every minute by each one of its landscapes. The weather is usually mild, but there are places where, depending on the season, it is drier and colder. Is there a type of climate for each type of traveller? Yes, because of the length of the country and its north-south distribution, the territory covers all temperatures.

Seasons of the year:

  • Summer (21 December to 20 March).
  • Autumn (21 March to 20 June).
  • Winter (21 June to 20 September).
  • Spring (21 September to 20 December).

While summers are hot and humid, winters are mild with frequent droughts. But in both cases there is great temperature amplitude. So, as well as packing sun hats and cool clothes in your suitcase, you'll need to bring some warm clothes to enjoy the starry skies at night. CENTRE
Summers here are hot and winters are cool. Whatever is included in your luggage will depend on the time of year you arrive. In general, the average temperature ranges from 15 °C (59 °F) to 20 °C (68 °F) with a high level of humidity. SOUTH
Temperatures tend to be lower and snowfalls in winter make it possible to enjoy the white-clad Patagonian mountains. In summer, however, the average is 18 ºC (64.4 °F) and skiing is quickly swapped for kayaking on some of the world's most beautiful turquoise lakes. Depending on the season, snow gear or a swimming costume is a must.
There is a suitable destination in Argentina to welcome tourists at every time of the year.


The country is ready to welcome tourists from all over the world. Those who prefer air transport will be glad to know that all provinces have their own airport. And if the road trip is a must on your itinerary, there are plenty of land routes to enjoy the incredible natural scenery. The Ruta 40, 5200 km long, is the main witness of the diversity of landscapes that Argentina has to offer, since it crosses the country from north to south. There are also long-distance trains, such as the famous Tren a las Nubes (Train to the Clouds) or the Tren Patagónico (Patagonian Train). One thing is for sure: there are no obstacles to discovering the national must-sees.
The SUBE card is a payment method for all modes of public transport (buses, subways, trains and subways) in the Metropolitan Area of Buenos Aires and many urban areas of the country (yes, very similar to the Oyster card!). What is interesting is that, in addition to its convenience, it offers automatic discounts when transport combinations are made. So, the first trip is paid in full, the second one 50% less and from the third one onward, 75% less.

The SUBE can be purchased at underground and train stations, kiosks and betting shops. You can top up your card at these same places. It is easy to buy and easy to use.
