There’s so much to see and do in Argentina that an adventurous traveler could get positively lost in its wonder. Of course, there are also some important things to know before you visit. Here are 5 Things NOT To Do in Argentina!
Know before you go!
1. Don’t Expect a Quiet Vacation
Perhaps the most important thing to understand when you’re visiting Argentina is that the people are loud. It’s not a bad thing, it’s just a cultural difference you should expect before you arrive.
2. Don’t Walk Around Without a Map
Anyone visiting Buenos Aires should know that the city can alternate socioeconomic levels on a block by block basis. Tourist hotspots may be just a few feet away from impoverished ghettos and you don’t want to accidentally end up on the wrong block in Argentina.
3. Don’t Go to Bed Early!
If there was ever an entire country of people who lived for the night, it’s Argentina. Dinner isn’t typically served until about 10:00 pm and clubs don’t start jumping until after 2:00 am! Most locals only sleep about six hours a night and then take a short nap during the day.
4. Don’t Pet the Dogs
Some of the larger bus stations have packs of feral dogs who live in the area. Usually they won’t mess with you, but just in case it’s best to take a wide berth.
5. Don’t Skip the ‘Milonga’
Milongas are Argentinian dancehalls that specialize in tango. Most feature an incredible variety of skill levels on the dance floor. Just leave your self-consciousness at the door.
