What do I need to know about living in Argentina?
When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Argentina, they said:
"Make sure you have a stable income in the currency of your home country. If you are from the US or Europe, your money will go far. You can eat out everyday affordably. The city has a lot of offer in terms of culture and it is a wonderful "walking town". Great architecture. There is always something to do. The neighborhood of Palermo Soho is fantastic with a mix of people, tons of restaurants, parks, and shopping. This city has a very European feel at a budget price,"
said another expat in Buenos Aires.
"Buenos Aires is a BIG city. But to me, it has a small town feel. I live in the chic Palermo which is much more calm than the center of the city. I think there is somethig for everyone in BA, but if you do not like a big city, lots of noise or pollution, you might want to head for somewhere with a slower pace like Mendoza or Bariloche (both beautiful!),"
added another expat who made the move to Buenos Aires.
"Don't be shy, embrace the experience. You only have one chance at life, eat good food and drink great wine,"
explained one expat living in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
"Learn Spanish before you come. Lack of Spanish won't stop you from achieving anything, but you'll miss out on some fantastic social situations. Other than that, be ready to eat some fantastic steaks and drink some incredible wine,"
mentioned another in San Rafael.
