Travel Tips & FAQs

Do I need a visa to travel to Argentina?
North Americans and Europeans do not need to get a visa before traveling, but there is a reciprocity tax (equivalent of what that country charges Argentines) of the indicated value that must be paid online for the following countries:
  • United States: $160, valid for multiple entries for up to 10 years
  • Canada: $92, valid for multiple entries for up to 5 years
  • Australia: $100, valid for multiple entries up to 1 year
Follow this link to pay the tax. The instructions are here. You must present a receipt of the payment at every border crossing.

Is tipping customary in Argentina?
Although not required, offering a small tip for services is a way to show appreciation for excellent work. In restaurants, you can add a 10% to the service charge that is included; for guides, we recommend between $2-10/ day; drivers can be tipped $1-3/ day.

What is the internet access like in Argentina?
Throughout most of Argentina, you will have access to high speed and/or wireless internet, including in most of the hotels. If you would like to make sure that the hotel where you’d like to stay has internet access, we’d be happy to let you know. In more remote parts of Argentina, like Patagonia and much of the southern wilds, there is not internet access.

Can I use my cell phone while in Argentina?
It all depends on your carrier, but roaming plans tend to be very expensive. If you have a GSM phone with a chip and it is unlocked or has a roaming option on your plan, you can simply buy a pre-paid chip once you arrive from one of the major carriers – Movistar, Nextel, or Personal. However, in some of the more isolated southern regions of the country, like Patagonia, Torres del Paine National Park or Tierra del Fuego, it can be impossible to get a signal.
 
Do I need power adapters?
You will need a voltage converter for 110-volt devices to work on Argentina’s 220-volt, 50-cycle electricity. Plugs are generally three angled flat prongs or two rounded prongs, so having plug adapters is also handy.

What are the toilets like in Argentina?
In the cities, hotels, and restaurants, you can count on modern flushing toilets; in rural parts of the country and on treks, you will likely only have squat toilets. You should always keep a bit of extra toilet paper and hand sanitizer with you as there is no guarantee that these will be provided in any restrooms.

What will it cost for a… ?
Bus fare: $0.10
Glass of wine or beer: $1.20
Simple lunch: $2.00
Dinner in a decent restaurant: $7.00

Can I drink the water in Argentina?
You can drink the water throughout most of Argentina, however many people say that it has a strong taste of chlorine. We make sure that there is always bottled water available to you if you prefer. In some of the more remote parts of Argentina, you should not drink the tap water, and we advise against brushing your teeth with it either.
 
Are credit cards accepted in Argentina?
Credit cards are widely accepted in Argentina in most stores, restaurants, and hotels in the major cities. As you get further from the modern cities into the small towns and isolated regions of the country, it is less likely that you will find businesses that accept credit cards.

What is ATM access like in Argentina?
ATMs are very common in big cities like Buenos Aires, but if you are traveling to remote areas or doing an active tour far from the main cities, it is a good idea to withdraw enough money to last at the beginning of your trip.

Do I need to purchase travel insurance before heading to Argentina?
You definitely should! We highly recommend buying travel insurance before heading out on your vacation, and we work with TravelGuard Insurance company to provide you with the best deals. They offer fair prices for comprehensive insurance packages. Our Once You’re Booked page has more info.
