    More positive SA tourism news. Glad to see my Argentine friends being key contributors to this development. It just shows the increase in spending power they have gained, and contrary to published news, thay are traveling free and spending their dollars as they please. ENJOY!!!

    @1 Aaah, that is why CFKC's government is actively discouraging Argentines from holidaying in Chile. She doesn't like this one bit.

    Chile will continue to expand the tourism industry. It really is an untapped market there.

  • The Chilean perspective

    Don't forget that the Argentines can bring their pesos to Chile and freely change them into Dollars or any other currency they want. At the moment they are getting about ARS 7.08 per US Dollar. It's not the official Argentine fake rate but at least here they won't get in trouble and no one is going to confiscate their money. I mean what price do you put on peace of mind, I'd be very uncomfortable going to one of those Buenos Aires “caves” to change money since anything could happen.
