Argentina's Iguazu Falls

Cheaper than ever, still as incredible as ever.

With business booming, Argentina's tourist office has decided to suspend reciprocity fees until further notice. These reciprocity fees of precisely $100 were basically an admission charge for Australian visitors.

And in a country you could comfortably do for $15 a day, a flat $100 was probably more than enough to turn plenty of visitors off. The timing is probably no coincidence either. 2016 and 2017 has seen a lot more competition take to the skies with multiple airlines fighting for the lowest prices on Australia - South America routes.

Chile, Bolivia, Peru and other Argentinian neighbours have all seen great results from their own tourism efforts, so competition for tourist dollars is just as fierce on the ground.

Australians in particular are keen multi-nation travellers, so there's a good chance Argentina's tourist authority realised their country was simply being skipped right over as more Aussies take sprawling tours of South America.

Between Buenos Aires and Camanito, the Argentinian ski season, mountains and rolling glaciers, the world famous Iguazu falls and all the other incredible attractions, Argentina definitely deserves its place on the tourist route, and it would really be a shame to skip it over just because of a $100 fee.

The attractions are all still there, but flights are cheaper and there's no reciprocity fee anymore. There really has never been a better time to go to Argentina.
