Requirements to enter Argentina change all the time, check the updated information here.
Argentina can be visited all year round. However, a trip to Patagonia is better during summer when all attractions and hiking trails are open (it snows during winter). Other regions may be affected by the change of season, but your travel won’t be troubled. For example, summer in Iguazú Falls can reach high temperatures, the same as in North Argentina (Salta and Jujuy). Summer is also the rainy season for northerners so if you visit Salta and Jujuy bring a raincoat! Mendoza’s vineyards blossom in spring, and Buenos Aires boasts no extreme weather during the year.
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.
Probably not. 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.
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. Plus, download an online application to translate to Spanish (some people understand English and some other languages, but most don’t).
Argentina is large, distances can be long. It depends on each traveler really. However, to visit 2 destinations in Argentina, the recommendation is no less than 10 days. The more time you have the more complete your trip will be!
With its 2.78 million km2, and 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 spotted with estancias, are some of the reasons 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 have 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 river 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 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 internationally famous.
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. It 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.
Moreover, 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 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 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, where 80% of the falls are located. This city was inhabited by the Guaraníes and then colonized by the Spanish Jesuits.
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 features 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, the 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 away). 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. This is the paradise for birdwatchers; Iberá Wetlands is home to more than 350 species of birds.
“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.
Located 75 miles away from Buenos Aires, El Ombú boasts an 1880 farmhouse where travelers can spend the day or lodge. This is the perfect place to relax and learn about Argentina’s gaucho culture. Twelve suites, a game room, two swimming pools, and volleyball pitches are some of the facilities you can enjoy in El Ombú. The ranch features more than 200 hectares of grazing livestock and agriculture and 350 heads of Aberdeen Angus cattle!
The many things that you have the opportunity to experience here are:
Estancia Cristina is our favorite in El Calafate in Patagonia Argentina. Built in 1914, today the estancia welcomes travelers from all over the world. Time has passed but the ranch is still only reachable by boat, with no land access. Prepare to live the true Patagonian experience! The Estancia offers high-quality accommodation and expeditions to spot glaciers since the ranch was constructed right at the heart of Glacier National Park. If you’re looking for an all-inclusive lodging experience, Estancia Cristina is your feet too.
Once in the estancia you can enjoy any of these activities:
It was founded in 1886 by Thomas Bridges the first white man to live in Tierra del Fuego. This is the perfect place to learn about the history of pioneers and explore their culture. As in the estancias mentioned before, you can lodge in Harberton, or enjoy a full-day visit to the main house to see the amazing gardens, the family cemetery and walk Tierra del Fuego National Park. Plus, Patagonian gastronomy is available for you to taste the best southernmost dishes!
In Estancia Harberton you can:
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.
What you can do in Tapiz:

I write to you today to express my heartfelt gratitude for all that you have done for me. I deeply appreciated your kindness, patience and wonderful professionalism. All of my guides were lovely and knowledgeable people. I feel like I have made friends for life! I have fallen in love with Argentina and I cannot wait to come back with my husband. I hope that someday soon I can host you in India and reciprocate some of the amazing hospitality I experienced. I wish you and your company achieve even greater heights.
We are most thankful for the trip you designed for us, it was a real dream come true. Everyone we met, and all the natural scenic points we experienced was beyond our expectations. Such a privilege to explore Argentina/Patagonia 😊 We nearly panicked about our mandatory covid test to return, but fortunately Say Hueque arranged our tests most easily, we thank you. We so appreciate your response! Although it was all great, we must single out our Half-day Safari Experience with Patagonia Profunda for being such a cool, unexpected terrific experience. The guide, food and small group was sensational! All of the guides were so kind to us too. Believe me the entire trip was life altering, I lost my phone on Laguna les Tres trail, and things have changed forever. How fortunate for me. Thank you Daiana, and Say Hueque for being so attentive to our needs and providing such a wonderful package. We wish you all the best, and would love to return!
Now that we are back I just thought to write to you and thank you for the amazing trip and the organisations you did. First of all Argentina is amazing and I wish, really wish you guys know it despite the financial and political incompetence everyone complained about. About the trip: My background is biology, so you can imagine how excited I was seeing all the biological and geographical diversity in Ushuaia and then in Iguazu... Everything about the tours in Ushuaia and Iguazu was well managed and was great (even one day there was a mix up with the tours in Iguazu but at the end it was sorted and even became super special). We had no issue with the luggages etc.,. Thank you. There was only one small thing that I thought to tell you about: the hotel Mil810. It was a bit annoying, there were several issues with it, one was that the walls that are super thin, so I could hear everything happening in the next door (the snoring, the showering and even when they brushed their teeth, I could not sleep due to the snoring of the man next door :D). The internet was super unstable and even one night we did not have any and also their breakfast was super super basic. Yet these could be temporary issues and also maybe there in Ushuaia internet might be an issue in general but I thought to let you know anyways. But again, all and all it was an amazing trip and everything went smoothly and I hope to be back to Argentina one day again....
We thoroughly enjoyed our Argentine Experience. The trip you designed for us fit perfectly and we appreciate your being sensitive to the energy 2 couples over 70 can maintain for 2 weeks. I put a review on TripAdvisor and hope it helps to attract additional interest in Say Hueque. We greatly enjoyed many experiences on the trip, from the tours in Buenos Aires and the El Ateneo book store to El Calafate and the Perito Moreno Glacier; from the view of Mt Fitz Roy in El Chalten to Ushuaia with the penguins, hike and fresh meal; and Mendoza wines, tour to Mt Aconcaqua and Cristina Brino’s cooking class. Many of the guides were exceptional. Some to mention are Tina in Buenos Aires, Nancy at Nibepo Aike, the guides with Piratour and Tierra Turismo in Ushuaia, Lena in Mendoza and Aixa at Corazon del Sol . It was a wonderful time - you have our great thanks and appreciation. Below are some suggestions for you to consider for future experiences. These are from Bonnie and me, Lois and Mark may have some additional observations. - The trip home on the 25th was a long day and the day before was an open day prior to the cooking class. Something that would have helped the travel would be to go to Buenos Aires the morning of the 24th leaving the afternoon of the 24th and morning of the 25th open for additional touring in Buenos Aires - there is always more to see. This would have eliminated much of the long wait at the airport. - The cooking class was wonderful. Cristina and her staff were great, entertaining presented a meal fit for 3 times the number of people. Unfortunately for us the class was on the Day of Remembrance for the disappeared and taxi and Uber service was limited. Villa Mansa staff had trouble finding a ride for us to Finca Adalgisa and Cristina and her staff had a lot of trouble finding a ride back to Villa Mansa. No taxi was to be found and we finally got a ride with Joaquin, an employee at the hotel that serves breakfast, at almost midnight. I’m not sure what to suggest for the class was a lot of fun. It probably is offered limited days of the week. Thank, Antonella and everyone else at Say Hueque for giving us a wonderful time,
We had a very nice time. The flights were fine and on time. The estancia Rincon del Socorro was fantastic!!! Beautiful place, we were one with the beautiful nature, good food and drinks, very friendly stafff, very nice guided tours. We experienced 4 wonderful days!! ...including the fires... We have experienced the fires around the Estancia from close by. The staff has taken good care of us, offered us an alternative dinner and brought us safely back to the estancia. Afterwards Wilfried and I spent another 3 nights, 2 days in Posadas. Despite the fact that it was very hot, we had a great time. We had 2 tours: The city tour was short, but good as a first introduction to the city. About the tour to San Ignacio Mini. and the mate-tour we want to say the following: You had a whole day planned. So we had expected a whole day, with the possibility of lunch in a local village. This was not the case. The visit to San Ignacio mini was very good, but we had expected more from the mate tour. The mate tour was just a short visit to the factory and a video screening, we had hoped to see more of the mate plantations themselves. The tour only lasted a good half day, we were driven back to Posadas and then had lunch there. We are happy to have been introduced to a very beautiful nature reserve Iberà in Corrientes and we are glad that we got a nice impression of Misiones.
Say Hueque is Argentina's top travel operator. Everything was perfectly planned, from the time I arrived to the time I departed. The tours were fantastic, the interpreters were fantastic, and the sites we saw were spectacular. The ability to choose exactly where I wanted to go was a huge benefit.
We are a group of seven Canadians. We had a fantastic time in Patagonia. Agustin Orso, our agent, has been really helpful. Our 14-day plan was totally tailored to our preferences, with visits in Ushuaia, Puerto Natales (Chile's Torres del Paine), and El Calafate. All of our guides were fantastic and spoke English fluently. We had varied hotel classifications, with Palo Santo in Buenos Aires being the finest, but the others fulfilled our expectations.
Laura at Say Hueque put up a fantastic vacation based on our proposed itinerary, which included visits to Buenos Aires, Mendoza, Salta, Cachi, and Cafayate. All of the preparations were excellent. Guillermo took us on a terrific walking tour of central BA's north side. What a pleasant and informative tour guide. Mendoza provided an excellent opportunity for wine tasting. Salta was a great laid-back city. We had a fantastic road journey from Salta to Cachi and then on to Cafayate, where we sampled even more fantastic wines.
Our vacation was fantastic. Everything was well prepared. Excellent communication with the organizer; my emails were nearly immediately responded to. The accommodations were as promised, with a few additions. In hotels/hostels, there was information on our departures/excursions waiting for us. The transportation was on time. We had ample time for ourselves and were free to use it anyway we saw fit. I have nothing negative to say. I'd like to go on this vacation again, even though I only have positive recollections! Already missing the sun, rain, people, and scenery.
This group of people gave me a life-changing experience. Each tour guide offers a leisurely pace. They also discuss the area's history. They arrived at the hotel on schedule. For the Cerro los Cristales hike, I hired a private guide. He's now a lifelong buddy of mine. I strongly suggest it.
