New members of the Argentina forum, introduce yourselves here - 2020

Hi all,

Newbie on the Argentina forum? Don't know how to start?

This thread is for you ;)

We invite you to introduce yourself on this topic, to share with us your expat story if you are already living in the country, or to tell us more on your expat projects in Argentina if you are planning to move there.

It will enable us to help you better but above all to wish you a warm welcome.

Welcome on board!

Hi Everyone

I have arrived in Buenos Aires from Yorkshire in England a week ago. 

I am 55 and semi retired. My daughter now runs the business and in the nicest way wants me out of the way.

So I plan to travel around quite a lot. Probably mostly by motorcycle.

I wondered if anyone had any tips for finding employment in a Chilean vineyard picking grapes or generally helping out.

I am fit and healthy and will fit in well with any group and conditions.

Look forward to talking to you.


I’m Ketaki Deshpande from India.
I flew to Argentina on the 21st of the feb 2020 and it’s been 3 days so far. The experience is quite good. I have explores some of my neighbourhood here in Almagro. Since, I’ve been here for only 3 days there nothing much to experience but it would be lovely if someone shows me around. The people over here are really sweet but none of them speaks English and I don’t speak Spanish. So there is this communication barrier though. Presently I’m looking for an accommodation since, I’ve booked this place only for a week. I’ll e studying my masters in the University of Buenos Aries for 8 months so, I’m looking for a place for 8 months. It would be really helpful if someone could guide me through this.
Looking forward for your response.

Best wishes,

Some guides are free, and also speak English.

For accomodations I would suggest asking the guides.  You can also try AirBNB and possibly negotiate lower rates for your longer stay:

You could also look at Locanto at ads placed by owners as well as agencies, to find apartments or rooms to rent:

Look under INMUEBLES and then the first line is for apartments for rent, the second line is for rooms for rent.  Just click on the line to go to the pages of the listings.
