When is the best time to visit?
Since Argentina is a vast country, with climates ranging from the warm North to the icy South, when to visit really depends on where you plan on going. But as a general rule of thumb, travelers should aim to visit from April to June (fall) or from September to December (spring). Learn more
Where should I go in Argentina?
City life in Buenos Aires is a constant blur and a must-see for any visitor interested in soaking up the exciting culture of this country.

Whatever destination travelers prefer, most will agree on one thing: there’s nothing like a well-grilled Argentinian steak accompanied by a glass of local red wine. Learn more
How many days do I need?
To truly experience Argentina, and eat your way through their diverse cuisine, plan to spend at least 10 days in this high-energy country. Learn more

Marina covered all the bases and was excellent. Our experience with Argentina and with KimKim was AMAZING! Trip of a lifetime!
Only downside is now we’re quite spoiled and will probably never NOT use KimKim if it is available in whatever destination we head to next!! read more

We loved hiking the Perito Moreno Glacier, it was amazing. The all glaciers boat tour was amazing as well especially if you upgrade to The Captains Club. Rolpho, or Rudy for short, was fantastic in communicating the history of the Iguazú falls and understanding when we wanted to move on. We did both sides, Brazil and Argentina, and the boat ride at the bottom. We highly recommend all. read more

I will never travel without kim kim again! From start to finish we were treated like royalty and had amazing guides/drivers etc. Marina was available to answer any questions and each excursion/activity was beyond our expectations. In Iguana, Laura Pomilio (our guide) was so knowledgeable about the rich history and all the ins and outs of the national parks. It felt like having a fast pass at Disney World everywhere we went. Pablo, our tour on the heart of the city bike trip, was amazing... read more
