The summer season is not over yet and there is still one of the breaks from the beginning of the year. From February 26 to March 1, Argentines will enjoy an extended break for the carnival holidays on Monday and Tuesday., and, following the trend of traveling around the country, they can take advantage of it to make a “getaway” in one of the many tourist destinations that Argentina offers. However, there are also promotions to visit the main destinations in Brazil and Uruguay.

In relation to the Pre-Travel program of the Ministry of Tourism, it should be remembered that the deadline to take advantage of the 50% refund has already ended. For the trips that will take place next February, the services must have been contracted before December 31, 2021.

Most popular destinations

The three travel agencies consulted agreed that Patagonia, especially Bariloche, stands out as one of the most requested national destinations. There is also demand for Mendoza, Ushuaia, El Calafate and the Atlantic Coast, especially Mar del Plata. In addition, some minor destinations, such as Tigre, Chascomús, and San Antonio de Areco, also become relevant on these dates because they are close and accessible from the City of Buenos Aires.

As for the international level, the three agencies consulted agree that Punta del Este, in Uruguay, and Rio de Janeiro, in Brazil, are the most requested destinations, especially for people who decide to take some vacation days, extend the 4-day break and turn it into a week-long vacation.

However, it is important to know that, going through the last third of January, there is little availability in national destinations. TTS sources said that, in part, this is due to the huge boost Pre-Trip gave to domestic travel.
