Planning a trip to Argentina? This unique country is one of our absolute favorites in South America! This is where to find our best Argentina travel tips, guides, and outdoor adventures.

We started our one month in Argentina by flying into the capital city of Buenos Aires. From there, we headed to Iguazu Falls on the border with Brazil! After heading to the wine region of Mendoza, we continued on to Bariloche, and ended with some incredible hikes in Patagonia.

Argentina is a diverse country rich in history, nature, and hearty cuisine. Although it is very popular with travelers, there are still many places that feel unexplored.

When starting to plan out your Argentina travel, there are definitely a few things you should know first. Domestic Flights can be a cheap way to see as much as possible, as many of the best attractions are spread out from each other.

Check out all our Argentina travel guides for tips, and to hear all about our own experiences. Also, be sure to taste as much local Argentinian food as possible along your journey.

Argentina Travel Tips

Money: Argentine Peso is the currency used in Argentina. However, it is common for restaurants and hotels to accept U.S. dollars as well.

Location: Argentina is located in the southern part of South America bordering Chile, Bolivia, Paraguay, Brazil, and Uruguay. It’s the 8th largest country in the world with so much to see and explore!

Language: Spanish is the official language spoken in Argentina. 

Seasons: Due to its position in the Southern Hemisphere, the seasons are reversed to what you might be used to in the United States and Europe. Winter is from June to August, while the peak season of summer stretches from December to February.

What to Eat & Drink: The food on our Argentina trip blew us away! From the street food to steak and merlot wines, there is no shortage of great cuisine in this country. We recommend sitting down for a typical BBQ lunch where you can try many traditional meats at once.
