Argentina is Open for Global Travel as of November

If you’re vaccinated, and originating travel from the U.S., or any other part of the world, Argentina will welcome you with open arms and zero quarantine requirement as of Nov. 1st, or if you can provide a negative PCR test taken within 72 hours before entry.

Here are six reasons to visit this sexy Latin American country during their peak summer months – which means right now through the holidays. To help with the rush of interest in the destination once again, Argentinian Airlines and Air Canada have both added new weekly non-stop flights from the U.S. and Canada starting in November and December.

With one million square miles of terrain, Argentina is certainly a place where you can spread out.

Highlights include hiking to a glacier in Los Glaciares National Park, horseback riding through a Mendoza winery, whale watching at Valdés Peninsula and witnessing the rushing water of Iguazú Falls. In addition to Argentina’s border reopening, dance clubs and large-scale events of more than 1,000 people have been authorized to open at a 50% capacity to fully vaccinated attendees.

Cheer at a fútbol match in Buenos Aires: Boasting the most soccer stadiums in the world, a trip to Buenos Aires is not complete without cheering loudly from the fan stands at a local soccer match. Sports fanatics can head to the Boca Juniors Museum and Bombonera stadium, or Estadio Alberto J. Armando as it’s officially called, home to Diego Maradona’s Boca Juniors, or to Núñez to visit the River Plate Stadium home of Boca’s arch rivals, River Plate.

Horseback ride through a Mendoza winery: Mendoza, most known for its Malbec, produces 70 percent of all the wine that is made in Argentina. An hour from the city, travelers can enjoy Argentina’s mountain landscape while on a horseback tour at one of the huge varieties of wineries. A few regions include Luján de Cuyo, Maipú or the Uco Valley.

Whale watch at Valdés Peninsula: As one of South America’s finest wildlife reserves, the Valdés Peninsula offers hundreds of miles of coastline that wildlife such as orca whales, sea lions, elephant seals, Magellanic penguins and more call home. Travelers should try to catch a glimpse of the unique orca whale beaching phenomenon that happens biannually from March through May in Punta Norte and from September through December in Caleta Valdés.

Witness the rushing water of Iguazú Falls: Argentina’s infamous Iguazú Falls, reaching nearly twice the width and height of Niagara Falls, are often considered one of the natural wonders of the world for good reason. On the Argentina side of the falls, the perfect place to take in the wonder is at Devil’s Throat or “Garganta del Diabo,” accessible via a walkway across Río Iguazú.
