Volunteering Tips: Buenos Aires

How to save money while volunteering: Buenos Aires is an extremely popular tourist destination. The nation has many restaurants and shops that cater mostly to tourists and are thus more expensive than places that cater to locals. If you are on a tight budget, avoid the touristy places and instead opt for the smaller, comfy restaurants. Try to walk around or use public transportation instead of opting for taxis.

Know Before You Go: Before you go to Argentina, you should know that Argentines are much more “European” as compared to their Latin American neighbors. Most Argentines are of European descent and are considered culturally and emotionally to be quite European. Additionally, before you go, you should definitely learn some Spanish, and if you already know some, practice speaking ahead of time.

Health and Safety of Volunteers in Buenos Aires

As a volunteer in Argentina, you are recommended to be vaccinated for Hepatitis A and Typhoid. Sanitation is quite modern in the nation and the water quality is good as well.

Buenos Aires is a relatively safe city for tourists and volunteers. Violent crime is rare, and as a volunteer you will only really need to worry about petty theft. Thieves in crowded areas target foreigners, so try to wear clothing with pockets where you can keep you money and valuables since they mostly snatch bags.
