Argentina is the eighth largest country in the world and is home to stunning natural landscapes as well as vibrant city life. Offering a unique experience for travellers, the country is famous for its quality wine, delicious food and world-renowned landmarks.

Moving and Living in Argentina

 

Argentina is rich in cultural heritage and European history, with natural beauty boasting everything from painted deserts and lush, warm forests to golden sand beaches, towering mountains and snowy waterfalls. 

Visitors are made to feel welcome through the country’s family-friendly atmosphere that values Sunday barbeques, relaxing siestas and exuberant socialising as a way of life. Argentina is a nation of intriguing contrasts, innovative and progressive whilst also valuing traditions and customs. 

Cultural diversity is a huge drawcard to Argentina, with concerts, museums, fashion, historical buildings and cuisine a huge drawcard for those looking to move to Argentina. Special events and festivals are held all throughout the year, with art fairs and tango festivals to week long fiestas celebrating the gaucho way of life (a lifestyle revolving around caring for livestock, with characteristics of bravery and unruliness).

The nation offers those moving to Argentina a high-quality lifestyle, whilst being highly affordable. As a general rule, the cost of everyday living is around half the price of that of America, and rental accommodation is 75% cheaper than options abroad.

The official language of Argentina is Spanish, however, English is a mandatory language in all state schools and many people, especially the younger generation, speak some English. However, joining a Spanish-speaking course will allow you to improve your Spanish skills whilst also socialising with new Argentinan friends. 

Argentinian cities have many different characteristics which make choosing one to call home so difficult. The bustle of the capital Buenos Aires, nicknamed ‘The Paris of South America’, the wine-growing region of Mendoza, wild and subtropical north of Patagonia, lake-studded mountains located near Bariloche and the chilled-out city of Salta within the north-west are just a few of the cities to call home in Argentina.
