Now might be the ideal time to book that dream trip to Argentina. The reason is that the Argentine peso has fallen against the US dollar by roughly one-third of its value since mid-July. For travelers booking with dollars, that means one-third off just about everything involved in your trip — wine, hotels, taxi rides, even a night out at a premier steakhouse.
Even if you don’t travel until the holidays, booking now ensures you’ll get these deals before the peso rebounds. You can book the five-star InterContinental Buenos Aires for about $118 midweek (prices vary nightly), about the same as the Comfort Inn near the Chicago O’Hare International Airport. Booking activities and tours around Buenos Aires is cheaper now than normal, as well.
