Argentina is a must-visit nation for any traveler who enjoys everything from a good, long hike to a nice glass of wine. There are many things to do, but there are also 5 Things NOT To Do in Argentina.
1. Don’t Skip the Red Meat
Even if you tend to avoid red meat, you might just want to make an exception for Argentinian carne, which is some of the best food in the whole world. No joke, it’s so good that most cows actually feel fortunate to get turned into it, so you don’t even need to feel guilty about it.
2. Don’t Go Shopping for Clothes
Unless you like paying a ton of money for a bunch of cheap c**p, then you should avoid a big portion of the clothing stores in Argentina. Unless you’re built like an underwear model you may come up short – the size selection can also be a little limited.
3. Don’t Arrive on Time!
You might be punctual back home in the States, but in Argentina, the expectation is that you’re going to be arriving at least a half hour later than previously agreed.
4. Don’t Tip Taxi Drivers
It’s a good idea to take a cab to get around the city. Sure. However, in Argentina cab drivers make good money, so you don’t need to think about adding a gratuity to your cab fare.
5. Don’t Give the Thumbs Up!
It’s the cultural equivalent of “Up yours.” The “Ok” symbol is also considered vulgar in Argentina, so your best bet is simply a universally friendly nod.
