You do not need a visa if you are a citizen of the European Union, the USA, Japan or several Latin American countries and if your stay does not exceed 90 days. In any case, you should get detailed information at the Argentinian embassy in your country. Please also keep in mind that the Iguazu excursion do include visits to the Brazilian part of the waterfalls. We strongly recommend to ask for entry requirements for Brazil.

"Is there compulsory vaccination for Argentina?"
There are no cumpulsory vaccinations for Argentina at the moment.

This is up to you. We are obliged to inform you about the fact that there do exist travel insurances which gain their money by charging for insurances that are usually not necessary... Still, in case of a serious illness or if you have to cancel the journey for unexpected reasons, you would have to bear the costs entirely. In order to avoid such circumstances we recommend a travel cancellation insurance policy, which you can find on the web.

Our travel packages concentrate on the services within the country you are travelling to. There, our experience and our pre-selection can actually provide an added value you can enjoy.
"Is it sensible to book domestic flights with DyM?"
Definitely! In case of unpredictable problems like strikes and flight cancellations you will have a local contact person when you have booked the domestic flights with us. The round trips, like for example to Iguazu, Patagonia or Salta, do already include the price for the flight. The prices indicated on our website correspond to the prices we generally receive when booking well in advance. This means: the sooner you book, the better the price. If you travel to Argentina with Aerolineas Argentina, please tell us when booking your round trips, because we can often charge even cheaper prices than indicated on our websites.
