Yes. On 24th September, an official statement said: Once 50% of the Argentine population have been vaccinated (we believe, by 10th October), quarantine and a second PCR test (between the 5th and 7th day in the country) won’t be mandatory for those who have their complete vaccination record (the last dose at least 14 days prior to the day you enter). For more information, visit our special website on how to travel to Argentina today.
Argentina does do not require visas for citizens of many countries (up to 90 days), like Australia, Canada, Germany, Japan, United States. For the latest up to date information visit your local embassy website.
Argentina can be visited all year round, but there are some destinations like Patagonia that are better to visit during summer since many natural places and some national parks can’t be accessed during winter.
Bring a variety of clothes (in Patagonia we can have all four seasons in 24 hours), comfortable clothes, and bring at least one nicer outfit to enjoy the nightlife. Sunglasses and sunscreen, an adapter and/or converter for outlets, a small bag or backpack. Download an online application to translate to Spanish (some people understand English and some other languages, but they are the minority).
Asado (barbecue) and empanadas are popular meals, but you can also find an excellent offer of pasta and pizzas. It is often thought that all meals have meat in Argentina and that there are no options for vegetarians, but that is not true. There are many options, and even exclusive restaurants for vegetarians, vegans and the gluten-free public.
The minimum number of days to travel in Argentina is decided by each traveler, depending on the number of destinations they want to visit on their trip. But if you want to relax, enjoy and discover the ideal is to travel with a minimum of 10 days. Obviously the more time you have the more complete your trip will be!
With its 2.78 million km2, and home to some of the most diverse climate and geography in the world, Argentina is one giant wonderland. The shining lakes and olive hills of Patagonia, the subtropical rainforests and impressive waterfalls in Iguazú, the great Perito Moreno Glacier, the white saline flats and cloud forest jungle near Salta, the whales basking in the bay at Peninsula Valdes, and the vastness of the Pampas filled with estancias, are some of the reasons for which Argentina is famous worldwide. Argentina can be discovered in an adventure trip, a family vacation or a self-drive experience. You can stay in luxury hotels and ranches, enjoy a hiker journey through Patagonia, or a wildlife experience. It’s your pick!
The best of Argentina include capital cities with active cultural life, rural experiences to discover gaucho traditions, and also expeditions to uncrowded and natural places like Iguazú Falls, Patagonia and Northern Argentina (Salta and Jujuy). Wine trips to Mendoza are also highly recommended, and wildlife explorations too! Península Valdés in Patagonia is the spot to see whales and penguins, and Iberá Wetlands to see marsh deers, capybaras and caimans.
Famously called the ‘Paris of South America’, this city is brimming with places and tourist attractions you wouldn’t want to miss out on. Buenos Aires sits on the coast of Río de la Plata, the widest in the world. If you cross this immense river it will take you 1 hour to reach the other coast in Uruguay! This city is the jumping point for almost any trip to Argentina since the international airport (best known for “Ezeiza”) and a domestic airport (called “Aeroparque”) concentrate the affluent of most of the flights in the country. We recommend staying at least 5 days to wander the streets, the many cafés and taste the delicious meat for which Argentina is famous worldwide.
The land of “sun and delicious wine” is located in the western center of Argentina, and it is one of the best tourist attractions. Sitting at the foot of the Andes, Mendoza is the largest wine-producing region. Mendoza is a perfect destination for food lovers and adventurous travelers since it combines first-level gastronomic experiences with outdoor activities such as horseback riding and white water rafting. Mendoza is the lively home to 75% of the Malbec vines grown worldwide and a perfect location for its production. Because of the high altitude and low humidity of Mendoza, vineyards rarely face problems of insects, fungi, molds and other grape diseases. This makes the cultivation with little or no pesticides really easy.
Named one of the Seven Natural World Wonders in 2011, Iguazú Falls is the most visited destination of Argentina. These magical falls, also named Natural World Heritage, are shared by Brazil and Argentina. Both of these countries have national parks devoted to them, and they are sufficiently different in character to each merit a visit.
Iguazú comes from Guarani Native language and means “big water”. This name is completely perfect for the falls since, among its 250 waterfalls, there is the Devil’s Throat which is more than 82 meters high. The closest city to the Iguazú National Park on the Argentinean side is Puerto Iguazú, which is visited all year round since it’s on this side that 80% of the falls are located. This city was inhabited by the Guaraníes and then colonized by the Spanish Jesuits. Iguazú still shows one of the best things about Argentina, its cosmopolitan culture.
Patagonia extends from the province of Bariloche to Tierra del Fuego. This immense region offers scenery filled with lakes, fjords, glaciers and steppes. “Patagonia” comes from the word “patagón” which was used by the Portuguese explorer Magellan to describe the Tehuelches (native communities), whom he thought to be giants.
Shared by Chile and Argentina, both countries offer different landscapes. While the Argentine side presents arid steppes, grasslands, and deserts, the Chilean side has glacial fjords and temperate rainforests. This vast region is known for Perito Moreno Glacier, the penguins of Ushuaia, the most famous hiking trails in El Chaltén and the diverse wildlife in Península Valdés.
This is one of the most beautiful and unexplored regions of Argentina, known for its sophisticated appeal, this region has become a favorite among curious travelers from around the globe due to its natural beauty, historic architecture, excellent weather and welcoming demeanor. Salta and Jujuy are the main provinces known as “the North”. Salta, founded in 1582, is the starting point to explore northern Argentina. From this city, nicknamed “la linda” (the beauty), travelers hit the road towards the stunning Calchaquíes Valley and the city of Cafayate, hometown of Torrontés wine. The province of Jujuy, located at the north of Salta, features the Humahuca Gorge, declared World Heritage by UNESCO and the Great Salt Flats, a white paradise that all should visit once in their life! Northern Argentina is not only a trip to see fabulous landscapes but to get closer and learn from the humility of its locals and their ancient traditions.
This is the perfect destination for wildlife lovers. The Iberá Wetlands is one of the most important freshwater reservoirs in South America and the second-largest wetland in the world. This destination is located in the province of Corrientes, near Iguazú Falls (just a 4-hour bus trip). The Iberá Wetlands have an immense variety of wildlife that include caimans, capybaras, swamp deer, pampas deer, howler monkeys, giant otters, anacondas and greater rheas.
A paradise for birdwatchers, Iberá Wetlands is home to more than 350 species of birds. The most popular destinations in Argentina include capital cities with active cultural life, rural experiences to discover gaucho traditions, and also expeditions to uncrowded and natural places like Iguazú Falls, Patagonia and Northern Argentina (Salta and Jujuy). Wine trips to Mendoza are also highly recommended, and wildlife explorations too! Península Valdés in Patagonia is the spot to see whales and penguins, and Iberá Wetlands to see marsh deers, capybaras and caimans.
“Estancias” are essentially cattle ranches in Latin America or the southern region of the US. Argentina’s estancias are closely linked to the history and essence of its culture. They range from extremely simple — a family home with rooms for a few guests — to fancier, purpose-built country-house structures.
This historical landmark is one of the oldest estancias in the country and is situated in the Province of Salta. Owned by the Arias family, El Bordo de las Lanzas provides one of the finest examples of colonial architecture in Salta because of its thick walls, woodcarvings, robust ironwork, and colonial doors leading out to a veranda. The warm welcome you receive, the hospitality, its traditional style and the natural beauty of its setting are what make Estancia El Bordo worth visiting. It’s been offering all of this since it was first established in 1609. So if you’re looking to relax and immerse yourself in the authentic estancia lifestyle of a Northern Argentinian (a region rich in traditions) country mansion, this is the place to be.
The décor is charming and elegantly simple, with certain classic estancia styles like crisp linens, dark antique furniture and exposed wood. All rooms are equipped with a wood-burning stove, decorated with religious paintings from the 17th and 18th centuries, and overlook the charming and extensive gardens. There is an outdoor swimming pool, a fireplace in the lobby, and a library. The estancia is still a working farm, growing crops such as maize and chia. You can also work on these farms as an educational experience.
The cuisine is made using fresh, local ingredients and the breakfast includes homemade jams and bread. The service here is impeccable and definitely worth your while!
The many things that you have the opportunity to experience here are:
El Bordó de las Lanzas is the perfect place for anyone interested in history, the culture of South America, or simply looking to enjoy some peace and quiet. The best months to stay at these estancias are from October to March.
Visit Estancia Huechahue in the lovely region of Patagonia and get the true taste of real and raw Gaucho life. But that’s not all; the picture presented by the windows of this estancia is truly mesmerizing. The Andean foothills, the Patagonian prairie land, the vast rivers and the looming mountains are sights for the sore eyes. Even the most worried and apprehensive minds are able to take a break in a place like this. But it is not all a philosophical, thoughtful or truth-seeking journey and experience. There’s more as the place offers conviviality as well. Enjoy fishing, horse riding, gaucho activities, rafting, and other water and land sports when staying in Estancia Huechahue.
The amazingly beautiful La Candelaria, in Buenos Aires is the epitome of classic old-world charm existing in modern times. This estancia dates back to the 18th century, and while it has been rebuilt in 2004 to its present state, the old glory is still seeping out from every pore of this Estancia. The fragrant trees, the flowers, the old country houses, the endless skies of the pampas and the intimate surroundings make Candelaria Del Monte, one of the best estancias in Argentina. If you are craving for freedom, this estancia and its open skies are going to be your comfort.
The best thing about this estancia in Mendoza is that it offers a combination of wine and recreation at one place. Club Tapiz in Mendoza is no different. The 22 acres of vineyards contain historical buildings, private rooms, breathtaking vista, and a chance at free wine tasting every evening.

Say Hueque did a wonderful job. They individualized our visit to Buenos Aires and Iguazú Falls. Sandra was an exceptional guide in Buenos Aires. She brought the history of this beautiful city alive for us. We felt very well taken care of!
We just returned from ARGENTINA and had a very good experience with SAY HUEQUE They organized tours for us, hotels and flights to Ushuaia El Calafate and Iguazu. Everything was perfect
We usually organise our own holidays but Argentina & Chile were just too vast to do on our own. I researched a number of companies. Say Hueque listened, had the right level of attention to detail, responded quickly and the right price. What a great choice! We travelled independently and joined others at the big spots of the Falls, glaciers (make sure you do the walk on the glacier) lakes area, Desert. Everything went exceedingly well, small problems were quickly resolved. Highly recommended.
We loved our 13 day trip to Patagonia! We visited El Calafate, El Chaten, Puerto Natales and Ushuaia. Say Hueque planned and organized an exciting trip for us with excursions to the Perito Moreno Glacier and Torres del Paine in Chile. We also got to walk with the penguins in Ushuaia. Our superior hotels were all very nice. Highly recommend this trip!
We returned home yesterday from our fabulous trip to Chile and Argentina. Thank you for planning such a great itinerary - we saw so many great sights and met many helpful and friendly guides and drivers. We feel fortunate to have seen and learned so much about these two beautiful countries. This is a trip will remember fondly forever. Thanks again.
I chose to travel with Say Hueque because we were looking for a trustworthy agency with knowledge and connections in Argentina and Chili. The booking process was smooth, no problems and good follow-up. All hotels were good but Rio Serrano in Torres Del Paine was great. Our favourite excursion was the hiking in El Chalten and the mini-trekking on PMoreno- are unique ! Olaf from Urban biking and Nico on the full day TDP-trip did a fine job. Thanks for all info, help and the organization of our trip !
Deborah, We had a great time. It was perfect. You did a wonderful job. It is another amazing part of beautiful Argentina. Thank you soo much! We will send everyone we know to you for side trips. Regards, Helen
