Top 9 Argentina Travel Tips

Top 9 Argentina Travel Tips



Argentina is​ a​ popular destination,​ but it's important to​ note on​ any vacation that there can be cultural,​ geological and meteoroligical differences when travelling abroad that could potentially ruin your entire trip. While in​ some places the​ differences can be minor,​ in​ others you​ could deeply offend a​ person by doing something you​ thought to​ be kosher. Don't let this happen to​ you,​ below are what I believe to​ be the​ top 7 Argentina travel tips. Follow these tips and you'll be sure to​ leave an​ impression of​ courtesy and enjoy more hospitality from the​ locals.

1. the​ most common form of​ greeting in​ Argentina betwen friends is​ kissing one anothers cheeks,​ so don't be caught off guard when someone makes a​ lunge toward your cheek. And return the​ favour out of​ courtesy if​ they have.

2. Once in​ Argentina,​ one of​ main methods of​ transportation is​ underground shuttle,​ or​ by bus/trolley bus,​ or​ taxi. Their are 5 main public ral lines,​ labelled a​ to​ E and services operate from early mornng to​ late at​ night on​ a​ fixed-fare basis. Buses are generally very crowded but are often the​ quickest means from one place to​ another.

3. Spanish is​ the​ offical language of​ Argentina,​ while English is​ widely spoken - don't rely on​ everyone to​ speak English,​ you​ should at​ least get some basic Spanish down before travelling to​ Argentina.

4. More then 90 per cent of​ Argentina's religious faith lies in​ the​ Roman Catholic church. Remember this as​ it​ does have an​ effect on​ what is​ kosher and what is​ not.

5. Argentina has 5 major airlines in​ an​ effort to​ make the​ big country smaller when travelling. Oddly enough,​ sometimes a​ flight will be faster and cheaper then say a​ bus or​ a​ taxi,​ so look into flying as​ a​ possible means of​ transportation for those slightly longer endevours.

6. you​ can get answers to​ most of​ your questions about Argentina tourism from the​ Argentina Tourist Information Center:

Secretariat of​ Tourism,​ Tourist Information Centers: Av. Santa Fe 883,​ (C1059ABC) Buenos Aires,​ Tel. 4312-2232 or​ 0800-555-0016; Ezeiza International Airport and Jorge Newbery Airport; info@turismo.gov.ar.

7. the​ official currency of​ Argentina is​ the​ peso,​ ills come in​ 2,​ 5,​ 10,​ 20,​ 50 and 100 pesos. One pesos equals one hundred cents. 2 pesos are blue,​ 5 pesos are green,​ 10 pesos are brown,​ 20 pesos are red,​ 50 peseos are grey,​ and 100 pesos are purple/violet.

8. Tips are somewhat outlawed in​ Argentina,​ though people still expect a​ tip in​ most situations - if​ that's the​ case 10 percent of​ the​ bill as​ your tip will suffice for the​ most part.

9. the​ Argentina time zone is​ Argentina Standard Time,​ which is​ GMT -3 hours,​ and GMT -4 hours in​ the​ summer. So set your watches correctly!

And the​ best tip of​ all is​ to​ plan ahead,​ use caution and common sense,​ and most of​ all - have fun!
