 Argentina    

Argentina became a highly desirable destination for medical tourism following the collapse of their currency (the peso) in January 2002, which had previously been pegged to the US dollar. This collapse resulted in extremely favorable exchange rates for US citizens visiting Argentina.

Buenos Aires, the nations largest city and capital have long been known for their advanced health care system and highly skilled doctors. There are many modern hospitals and clinics throughout the city where you will receive world-class healthcare at a fraction of the cost in the US. Our partner clinic in Buenos Aries is among the top medical travel dentistry clinics in the country. The US Embassy in Buenos Aries, as well as the leading American corporations refers their employees to this clinic.

In addition to the excellent health tourism treatment available in Buenos Aries, it is also a fabulous vacation destination, being the most European-esque city on the American continent. Argentina is located in South America and can be reached from most US cities within 10 to 14 hours

Country Information
 
Argentina is world renowned for its stunning natural wonders, from the northern deserts to the southern Andean Cordillera, from Iguaçu Falls to the magnificent desolation of Patagonia. But did you know that its Capital, Buenos Aries is the most European city in the American Hemisphere. From its stunning architecture to its elegant cafés and boutiques, you most likely be in for quite a nice surprise.

Climate 
 
Argentina lies south of the equator, and so its seasons are opposite those in the Northern Hemisphere. This gives US citizens the possibility of enjoying 2 summers in the same year. December to February are the summer months and mid-June to late September are the winter months. January temperatures average about 80° F (27° C) in the north and about 60° F (16° C) in the far south. Average July temperatures range from 60° F (16° C) in the north to 32° F (0° C) in the south.

Clothing 
 
The clothing that you take depends on the date of your travel. Summers are warm and sunny, so shorts are a must. Occasionally it gets a bit cold during the night so it is advisable to bring a jacket. Winters are mild with some rains, but in Buenos Aires it does not snow. A windbreaker and scarf are enough. Just remember that Summers & Winters are the opposite of ours.
