Lifestyle

Lifestyle

Whether you’re a cosmopolitan, culture loving expat or nature-loving outdoorsy type, Argentina will not disappoint. Buenos Aires is full of trendy and quirky cafes and bars, fine and varied restaurants, shopping malls, cinemas and cultural institutions which deliver an impressive array of fine arts to both the locals and international community. Argentina is also a nature wonderland consisting of several ecosystems with such jewels as glaciers, the Andes mountains, tropical jungles, stunning coastline and waterfalls like the Iguazu Falls . Needless to say, there is much landscape to explore and play in. Also, happily, Argentina is a fairly safe country to reside in (opportunistic petty theft being the exception). Of course, language could be a challenge for the English speaking expat from time to time. While most locals seemingly know basic English in the hospitality industry, many Argentinians do not. This can make navigation, retail shopping, doing personal business and dealing with the government tricky at times.

Cost of Living

Cost of living

Residing in Argentina is not a bad bet for the expat’s budget. Indeed, according to Xpatulator’s July 2016 report, the cost of living in Argentina is lower than the international average. This becomes apparent when one purchases any number of goods and services such as healthcare, transit, groceries, an Internet plan, personal care items, restaurant meals and alcohol. The only items that appear more pricey are clothing and household accommodations. Assuming the western expatriate teacher is able to negotiation a fair remuneration from his or her international school employer, he or she will be able to not only live comfortably, but will save some money as well.
