Which destinations do I have to book in advance?


We recommend booking in advance Argentina’s most popular destinations such as El Calafate and Iguazú Falls that are usually highly requested. It can be difficult to book a last-minute trip to any of these destinations considering tours and hotels don’t offer their full capacity because of COVID-19 protocols.

In addition, Iberá Wetlands is another that should be reserved in advance. This off-the-beaten-track destination offers a small and exclusive list of hotels since it is still an undiscovered paradise.
