The climate of Argentina is just as diverse as its landscape: the country stretches in about 3700 km long and 1400 km wide, over high mountains and deep valleys. Depending on which part of Argentina you travel to, you can expect different climates. Therefore, the best travel time is strongly dependent on the location.

The national currency is the Argentine Peso (ARS). In addition, some Argentine trades also accept US dollars or credit cards as direct cash. You can also withdraw cash at ATMs; however, no more than 700 ARS per transaction per day. Under certain circumstances no further withdrawal at another machine is possible. Only pay as much money as you can safely spend, as the return of the remaining ARS in dollars/pounds is not only difficult in Argentina, but also in your home country.
There are no restrictions on the import of cash on arrival. However, there is a declaration requirement of US $ 10,000 (for people under 16 as of US $ 5000). Please note: On departure, cash is only allowed up to $ 10,000 (under $ 16,000 to $ 5,000).
In order to charge your electronic equipment in Argentina, you need an adapter for Type I sockets.
Cheaper than using hotel phones are the "Locutorios", "Centros de Llamadas" or "Telecentros". The latter have quiet telephone booths, usually also for internet connection and you will pay after use. Argentina's country code is +54. Argentina has a fully developed GSM network and a CDMA network (in the USA) in the urban areas.
