Remember that the simplest trips are the most enjoyable
When planning an Argentina family vacation, a great rule to remember is that some of the best trips are the simplest or those without too many logistics to plan and organize.

Your itinerary doesn’t have to be crammed with activities…. appreciate what you are able to see and do, and know that these are special memories that will last for a lifetime!

Choose attractions that will please everyone
This may sound like a tall order – finding places to visit that will keep everyone entertained – but in Argentina, it’s actually quite easy. The MALBA, arguably Buenos Aires’ best art museum, offers fun workshops for kids where they can make their own works of art. Iguazu Falls is always a family-favorite, with wildlife viewing, thrilling boat rides, and stroller-friendly pathways. As mentioned, Buenos Aires has a great deal to offer to families with the most diverse preferences. As a matter of fact, there are some great ideas to get your kids involved before visiting the country, check them out!
Do your research before boarding the plane
You’ve bought your plane ticket, booked your excursions and have started packing… but how much research have you done on Argentina’s customs, currencies, and cuisine? If this is your first Argentina family vacation, you may not be familiar with our traditions and laws, and it’s important to take the time to learn so you don’t run into any difficulties. Have you learned simple phrases in Spanish, such as please and thank you?
