This is my first post with the RG community. Look forward to meeting you all.
My husband and I are dreaming of going to Argentina next March. We would like to stay for about 2 months. The very rough idea is to stay in BA for a couple of days then head to Mendoza where we have friends. From Mendoza to Patagonia, along the mountains, travelling slowly. After Mendoza we would camp most of the time and I mean wild camping as much as possible. I did some research and Argentina seems like a great place for campers. We have all necessary 4 season camping gear so don’t really need to spend money on gear.
However, I’ve been reading on the internet that, because of the high inflation the country gets more expensive from one month to another. Outside BA and maybe a nice dinner or two in Mendoza, we would like to do it on the cheap but not to the point that we eat bread and cheese everyday:) I know inflation is a problem more for the locals who earn and spend there but it also effects tourists.
Would anyone be able to give a rough budget idea? Are the prices in Argentina really close to Western Europe? Would £1700 for two after flights be enough for this kind of trip or is it too optimistic?
Thanks for reading.
