Having done this a couple times I can say that your passport will be stamped twice: once for entry and once for exit. In general, the two immigration checks - Argentinian and Uruguayan - are back to back so the likelihood of missing out on a stamp is fairly low.
Long distance buses in Argentina are indeed pretty good, in particular those branded "coche-cama", "ejecutivo", etc. Way better than the average European bus, and crazy better than the typical Greyhound in North America.
That said, the trip from Buenos Aires to the north of Patagonia will be around 24 hours, and twice that to the south. To boot, prices are ...
Generally, when travelling on days of major celebrations, it is hard to estimate the level of celebrations that may take place in transit hubs such as bus stations or airports. Halloween, while it is celebrated in much of Uruguay and Argentina similarly to the United States, is still not considered a major holiday, which reduces the possibility of any forms ...
Yes. Stugeron (and all the other brands of Cinnarazine) sell as "Venta bajo receta".
Which you'd guess means that it requires a prescription, but... it doesn't, unless you are trying to get your insurance to cover for it.
Drugs that say "Venta bajo receta archivada", on the other hand, do require a prescription in every case.
Ask someone you know well from Argentina to buy the ticket for you, bring USD with you and reimburse them with cash. Everybody wins.
Unfortunately Argentinean monetary regulation (if it's possible to name it so) calls for such manual transactions.
So it seems they approve only for approval date + 90 days regardless of when you actually want to travel. They won't change the dates on my ETA and I have to pay the fees again and apply again if I want to travel in December.
Looks like I will be going elsewhere for vacation.
I have just spent few months living in Buenos Aires. Researched the topic of ATM withdrawals and money exchange, and can confirm the following findings.
The smallest ATM fee is at Banco De La Nacion. It's around 230 ARG (or 5 USD). All other banks charge 10 USD or more.
Max withdrawal limit: Up to 4000 ARG
Also, Banco De La Nacion seems to be the best ...
I live in Argentina and I travel a lot with Latam.
After some recent changes on fare tickets on South America, people get very low prices if they travel with cabin luggage only. This means that the carry-on suitcase number increased by 100%.
A plane has limited space for carry-on suitcases stored in the overhead.
So now, Latam personnel controls carry-on ...
Following up with my experience:
I did not get allocated (or see, even) any Uber or Cabify in my 4 night stay in Mendoza -- not at the airport, not in Mendoza city, not in the wineries area. A friend reported getting allocated once from in town.
In the end, I relied mainly on remises ordered via WhatsApp (e.g. Mendoza Remiss offers this).
Note well -- ...
I can answer for Movistar. As with all providers, the sim needs to be registered. In this post there is an explanation of the registration process. It says that foreigners cannot do it online (it mentions passports explicitly), but they have to do it in person at some Movistar Centre.
My experience with Movistar has been good. Internet speed in particular ...
the good news is, it is free :)
Tourist visa for Indian nationals: free.
INFORMATION CONCERNING VISAS (fees, application form, general
considerations and specific ...
In Argentina it is standard that everybody, locals included, are required to show their id when doing any card purchase, and it is common practice to write the number in the receipt. Even with chip-and-pin cards. This is so standard that for seniors to prove they are still alive and keep receiving their pension, it is enough for them to do one card purchase ...
I don't think so. This terminal is indeed structured like an airport, with check-in and stuff, but there is fewer hassles - not that much of security theatre, boarding is faster, boats don't need time to steer around like planes do, etc. I think 45 minutes is more than enough to board the ship, I don't think they are leaving without you.
The entire Subte network (sans the Premetro Light Rail and Urquiza Line + various train yards) is underground, so there are no major elevated portions of the network.
If you are visiting to see elevated stations, I believe some of the commuter rail lines just underwent considerable grade separation projects, but those are technically not part of the Subte.
Just sharing my experience: some friends of mine of myself took the Buquebus boat service from Buenos Aires to Montevideo, then back from Montevideo to Buenos Aires on the same day in early January 2020.
None of us received an Uruguayan stamp on their passport upon passing the Uruguayan immigration (we went through 2 Uruguayan immigration officers) at the ...
While some people in Argentina, mostly upper middle class, are starting to celebrate Halloween, it isn't not celebrated massively by any means. It's not mentioned at school, and you will not see people dressed up. If you put your kids in costume and start knocking doors at random for trick-or-treating, no one will know what you are doing, you will get no ...
No it isn't possible. You will have to provide a national identity document (DNI) with a minimum validity of 12 months and also have to provide a tax id (CUIL).
Even with all of that mentioned above, most banks still won't accept you as customer because of internal policies.

There's a page about this service on the Argentinian government website. All the information is in an image (accessibility? what's that?). The image is dated 21/05/2019.
The service operates from Monday to Friday. (There is no mention of public holidays, but you should double-check if you travel on a day that's a holiday in either country.) Trains depart ...
You can't actually cross at the falls, so you would have to backtrack, twice, anyway.
The total distance would come down to about 100km. See screenshot of the route.
I'm quite sure the ferry between Argentina and Paraguay runs from within the town of Foz to the tri-border point on the Paraguayan side. If you zoom in on the Google Map, you can see what are ...
To address the logistical part of the question, the Wikivoyage page on Ciudad del Este, Paraguay notes the following:
The most common way to arrive is across the Puente de la Amistad (Friendship Bridge) which connects Ciudad del Este in Paraguay and Foz do Iguaçu in Brazil. There are frequent bus connections, also to and from Puerto Iguazú in Argentina. ...
As of Sept. 2018, you are exempted for two personal items: one laptop/tablet and a cell phone.

Anecdotally, you can get away with more if you make sure to take everything out of its packaging, take off price tags, spread your devices across bags and clothing, and do what you can to make it look used. Officials ...
It is not possible to reliably see king penguins within easy travel of Ushuaia.
While there are sometimes two or three visible at Isla Martilla they aren't present more often than not according to the locals.
