Despite spending 32 days in Argentina, 4 days longer than planned, we were unable to really make the most of our time due to budgets. Unfortunately, Argentina turned out to be more expensive than anticipated, by about 30%, and as so we ran out of money fairly early on. The main costs were an increase in accommodation and transport fare. However, during our time we did take in some amazing places including the ones below:
