Health & Safety Overview

As in every South American country, travelers should take extra precautionary measures when eating, drinking, or wondering around the streets – especially at night. While many parts of Argentina are considered relatively safe, travelers should not flash expensive items like large cameras or expensive jewelery. There are health clinics and hospitals throughout the country, but travelers should come prepared with any required medications in case you cannot find them in a pharmacy. Make sure all medications are clearly labeled in their original containers. It is usually good to bring your prescription along just in case. Travel insurance is always recommended, especially if your regular health insurance doesn't cover emergency evacuation abroad. For the most part, Argentina is free from major diseases that demand vaccinations, but it is strongly recommended that you get vaccinated for rabies, hepatitis B, and tuberculosis prior to your trip.Typhoid and hepatitis A boosters are also strongly suggested.
