SMILE. YOU’VE LANDED IN ARGENTINA.

With territory extending from Antarctica to the tropics, and from the Andes to the Atlantic, Argentina is the second largest country in South America. When wistful travelers try to summarize trips to Argentina, their stream-of-consciousness exclamations include glaciers, mountains, vineyards, gauchos, polo, silver, tango, fine food and elegant hotels.

What should I pack for Argentina?

Still, here are some essentials to help you get started:

  • Passport. Lock the original in the hotel safe and keep a copy (say, a photo of the passport’s photo page) with you at all times.
  • US cash in small denominations (clean, un-torn bills). US dollars are happily accepted throughout Argentina, and may help you obtain better prices at shops.
  • Airline flight information
  • Sun protection (sunblock, sunhat, & sunglasses)
  • Credit & ATM cards. ATM’s are available and major credit cards are accepted at most restaurants and hotels. Please confirm your travel dates and destinations with your card issuers before you leave the country. 
  • Camera, batteries, & data cards (or film, if your hands are occasionally scented by fixer or selenium)
  • Insect repellant & antihistamine (anti-itch) spray if you’re headed to the tropical north
  • Prescription medications
  • Rain jacket
  • Synthetic fleece pullover or other warm layer
  • Swimwear
  • Daypack or small backpack
  • Light, informal clothing for dining and hotel or in cities (it’s amazing how versatile a charcoal grey sweater can be)
  • Comfortable walking or hiking shoes
  • Electrical adapter, universal surge protector, & power strip
  • Wind resistant jacket, gloves, hat, trekking pants (if you’re headed to the Andes and/or Patagonia).

How safe is Argentina?

Argentina is generally quite safe; however, common-sense precautions are still important. Buenos Aires is one of the largest cities in the world; big city awareness is appropriate. Bag snatchers and pickpockets target public transportation hubs and tourist areas. As a general rule, you should not be out in the streets alone after dark. Stay in well-lit areas and be aware of your surroundings. Most incidents occur in the street. Keep your travel documents (e.g. passports) in the hotel safe or concealed in a zippered pocket. Leave that flashy wristwatch at home or in the hotel security box.
