Testimonial

Amazing Voyages kept track of us every day and we cannot explain how important it was to us to feel that we were in very good hands. Every driver and guide was always on time and very gracious and helpful and our every need was taken care of for us. We really appreciate your professionalism.

The Plaza Grande in Quito is absolutely fabulous, the Royal Palm in the Galapagos is the best hotel we ever stayed in; the chef is outstanding, his meals are some of the best we ever had. Did you know that Prince Charles stayed there when he visited the islands? We are sure that the service we received was just as good as his. We had a marvelous time in the Galapagos and it was living a dream.

ARGENTINA - DESTINATION GUIDE
Argentina - Cuernos del Paine from Lake Pehoe
From its elegant capital Buenos Aires to Mendoza, the wine capital of Argentina, Argentina will surprise all her visitors. Boasting the highest mountain outside of the Himalayas, Aconcagua attracts thousands of climbers every year. From ski enthusiasts to oenophiles; from fabulous wildlife excursions in the Valdes Peninsula to the dramatic landscapes of Ushuaia and Tierra del Fuego, Argentina boasts an incredible diversity of wonderful destinations. The awesome Iguazu Falls in the north to the incredible Perito Moreno Glacier in the south, Argentina has scores of fabulous destinations in a very modern South American country.

Climate


Climate is varied in the vast Argentinean territory. To the north temperatures are subtropical, while in the central regions it is tempered and pleasant, although in Buenos Aires summer can be very hot and humid. To the south the climate is cold, ideal for skiing, and the summer is very brief and not too hot. Because of this, the best time for visiting the country depends on the chosen destination.

How to get there


Argentina offers modern means of transport: air, sea, river,overland and urban.
The main airlines of the world travel to Argentina arriving, most of them, at the Internacional Ministro Pistarini Airport (located in Ezeiza), connected to the city of Buenos Aires by means of a motorway (35 Km). It is also possible to arrive at the cities of Cordoba and Mendoza by air from some bordering countries.

When to travel


Remember that in the Southern hemisphere the seasons are the opposite to those in the Northern hemisphere.

The high season in Argentina takes place during the months of January and February (summer holidays) and July (winter holidays). During those periods the local tourism grows and prices get generally higher.

You can enjoy Buenos Aires the whole year even though in summer (especially January and February), it is too hot.

Summer (January, February and part of December and March), is the most favourable season to visit the Patagonia (Andean and Atlantic); the central Sierras (Cordoba and San Luis); and the Sierras and beaches of the Buenos Aires cost.

Winter (June, July and August), is advisable to travel to the North and Northwest for the rains are less frequent and the tropical temperature drops a few degrees.

Autumm and Spring are ideal for the Cuyo Region even though summer is a good time to visit it too.

July and August are the most convenient months for the practice of ski in the varid Winter Ski Centres that our country offers.

Winter and Spring are appropiate to visit Misiones and its Iguazu Falls (Summer is too hot).

Choose your clothes according to the time of the year and the region you visit.

Admitance Requirements


Foreign tourists coming from bordering countries only need an identity card to enter the country. People from abroad must show their passports. Tourists from abroad can stay in the country up to 90 days at most.

Money Handling


The legal tender currency in our country is the Argentine Peso. Several shops accept Dollars, however, it is convenient to exchange them in Banks and authorized Exchange Bureaux.

The legal tender notes are 100, 50, 20, 10, 5 y 2 Pesos, and the coins 1 Peso, 50, 25, 10 y 5 cents (there are also 1 cent coins but they are rarely used).

The most well known and accepted credit cards are: American Express, Master Card, VISA and Diners.

Tips


It is customary to leave the equivalent to 10 % of the value paid in cafeterias and restaurants. It is also usual to tip doormen, ushers and porters
