Frequently Asked Questions

The peso is the official currency of Argentina, made up of 100 centavos. ATMs are widely available, but do remember that there is a charge for every withdrawal - you may want to exchange your cash prior to arriving to ensure you won't be charged heavily for small withdrawals. 

Dance – Argentina is widely known as the birthplace of the tango – a passionate improvisational social partner dance that has recently seen a resurgence due to mainstream Western television dance shows.

Sport – The country is synonymous with football too, having won the FIFA World Cup twice, and finishing as runners-up three times.

Wine – Declared as Argentina’s national liquor in 2010, Argentine wine is now recognised the world over. Unlike many other exporters of wine, the vineyards here aren’t at risk of fungi, insects and grape diseases, due to the low humidity and high altitudes. This vastly reduces the need for pesticide.  

Argentina is particularly fond of parrillada (barbecue) and grilled meats – here you can enjoy sizzling slabs of world-class beef, and equally impressive street food – here’s a few you have to try:
• choripan – a grilled beef and pork sausage sandwich marinated in chimichurri sauce
• omito – a hearty, flash-grilled steak sandwich topped with fried egg, lettuce, onions, chimichurri sauce, tomatoes, mayonnaise and cheese
• bondiola – roasted pork shoulder, seasoned with salsa and lemon juice, served on a thick baguette, topped with fries, cheese and herbs

A hive of energetic streets, expansive wildernesses, exquisite food and a proud blend of European cultures and influences – Argentina simply has to be experienced.

Did you know...

• In late 2001-2002, Argentina had five presidents in ten days.
• In 2015, an Argentine appeals court gave female orangutan Sandra rights to life, liberty, and freedom from harm – the same rights as a human. Prior to this, Sandra was born into captivity and kept in a zoo for 29 years, before animal rights campaigners petitioned for her to be considered an individual, rather than a ‘thing’.
• On 20 July every year, Argentina celebrates Friendship Day, with locals hosting large, friendly gatherings of family and acquaintances, old and new.
