"Kimkim is the perfect solution for independent travelers who are too busy to plan it all themselves" - Gayle R., traveled with kimkim in October 2019

Introducing Argentina

Argentina exudes passion. From the steamy dance of tango to the cult of futbol, Argentinean culture is as flavorful as its cuisine.

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. Argentina boasts a host of natural splendors as well, from the Iguazú Falls in the subtropical north to the icy beauty of Perito Moreno Glacier and the Andean salt flats. 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

Getting around in Argentina
Given its size, most itineraries in Argentina include domestic flights that take several hours. Renting a car and setting off on a road trip is also a great way to explore Argentina, though most travelers stick to regions for their road trips, and fly between regions. Learn more

This trip was everything I hoped for and much more. Emilice was a dream to work with. She went above and beyond to make this trip magical. She came up with activities that we loved and would have never thought of doing. All of our drivers and guides were great, but our driver for most of the trip, Fabio, was pleasant, knowledgeable, very friendly, and professional. We miss him. Our favorite guide was Hernan, our guide for the half-day city tour such knowledge and friendly mannerism. All of the hotels were centrally located and comfortable, not a fan of the hotel in Mendoza though. The dinners and lunches that Emilice planned were stellar. We couldn’t have dreamt of a better trip. My husband and I are seasoned travelers but I would have never been able to plan a trip as good as this one. Thank you KimKim, Emilice, and all of our drivers and guides. Will definitely use this company again and will recommend to my fellow travelers. Gracias por todo!!!

Although we were moved to Hotel M, across the street and it was newer, it was noisy and bathroom was super small similar to a bathroom on a cruise ship. You could hear everyone in the hallway and street noise was pretty bad. It was centrally located which was very nice. Also, I requested a little later check out and they asked for 50% of daily rate. Unbelievable.

The best experience we had in Argentina. Pablo was so welcoming and made us feel at home. The food was delicious. A bottle of Malbec was served for every meal.

This is the first time I’ve used a travel agent and absolutely everything ran smoothly. From our driver, Eduardo, in Buenos Aires to our guides Rodolfo in Iguazu and Ramiro in Mendoza, everything ran like clockwork. Our visit to breathtaking Iguazu Falls was fun and informative; on our second day we did a bike and kayak trip with Alejandro and Nadia, and was definitely the highlight of our time in Iguazu. In Mendoza, we had two enjoyable and informative days with Ramiro at several wineries. On our third day, we were supposed to visit Puente del Inca and do a short hike in the Andes, but motion sickness got the best of me and we had to abort those plans on our way up.

Working with Natalia to plan this trip was a pleasure, she was very responsive and provided us with a customized the trip that was exactly what we wanted. We are looking forward to working with Natalia on our next trip to Argentina.
