Climate

For residents of the northern hemisphere, Argentina offers the inviting possibility of enjoying two summers in the same year, but the country's great variety and elongated geography can make a visit in any season worthwhile. Buenos Aires' urban attractions, for example, transcend the seasons, but Patagonian destinations, such as the Moreno Glacier in Santa Cruz, are best to visit in the summer months (December to February). The Iguazú Falls in subtropical Misiones province are best in the southern hemisphere's winter or spring when heat and humidity are less oppressive. The winter months (mid-June to late September) also offer the opportunity to go skiing.

Currency

The Argentinian Nuevo Peso is the official currency and as Argentina is generally one of the most expensive countries to travel through in Latin America, recent currency devaluation has resulted in a sharp drop in prices.

The US dollar is the best foreign currency to take with you as it offers the best rate of exchange, but most foreign currencies can be exchanged with little difficulty. Both credit cards and travellers’ cheques are widely accepted, but not without disadvantages. Commission rates as high as 10% will be levied on travellers’ cheques and should you choose to pay by credit card, you can expect a service charge.
Our best advice is to accept that you are probably never going to get the best rate of exchange and travel with the form of currency you feel most comfortable with. All of this taken into consideration, we still feel that travel to Argentina is definitely worth the extra cost!
Banking hours are from 10am to 6pm, Monday to Friday, closed on Saturdays and may vary depending on the season.

Visas

Most foreigners do not require a visa, only a tourist card, which is issued at no cost upon entering the country. You must reconfirm your country’s current entry requirements prior to your departure.
Health

Dengue fever is a concern in the subtropical north. The Aedes aegypti mosquito, which transmits the dengue virus, is most active during the day, and is found mainly in urban areas, in and around human dwellings. Signs and symptoms of dengue fever include a sudden onset of high fever, headache, joint and muscle pains, nausea and vomiting. A rash of small red spots sometimes appears three to four days after the onset of fever. Severe complications do sometimes occur. You should seek medical attention as soon as possible if you think you may be infected. A blood test can indicate the possibility of dengue fever. There is no specific treatment. Aspirin should be avoided, as it increases the risk of haemorrhaging. There is no vaccine against dengue fever.
