To all of our friends and guests,
From the U.S. Office of Patagonia River Ranch:
We are excited to reach out to you with updated information on Argentina and the upcoming season. As many of you know, we have been anxiously waiting for news from the Argentine government for months.
While there is no official announcement at this time, we are starting to hear the beginning stages of a plan. According to a recent news article released on Monday, August 16th in Argentina, the government is planning on opening the country to tourism prior to the beginning of the fishing season. Matias Lammens, The Minister of Tourism and Sports, states in the article “that the government plans to open the borders in October.” The article continues: “In addition, the minister assured that foreigners will not have to quarantine when entering the country.” This is very exciting news to hear and we are eager for the official announcement. It is also very typical for the government to “leak” information and plans through the news prior to an official statement.
Argentina also continues its vaccination process, with numbers of doses administered increasing each day. The most recent numbers indicate that Argentina has given the first dose to 59% of the population and the second dose to 23%. The second dose numbers have been rapidly increasing throughout the month of August. To give reference, the United States has fully vaccinated 50.8% of the population (according to the most recent data posted on August 15, 2022).
While we are not aware of entry requirements at this time, we are keeping a close eye on this and will keep guests updated. Based on the statement from The Minister of Tourism and Sports, we anticipate easy entry into the country and no quarantine once Argentina begins accepting tourists.
This new information paired with the vaccination data is an extremely positive announcement for the upcoming season.
The fishing promises to be sensational following 1 ½ years of virtually no pressure on our rivers! The Andes are experiencing good snowfall and we expect plenty of water and hungry fish this season.
We are continuing to book new guests, and have a stunningly beautiful ranch environment with a full Argentine staff that is ready to welcome guests upon arrival.
Our team in the U.S. office is busy working with potential guests and would love to speak with you about options for this upcoming season. Please reach out to us via phone (307-739-8093) or email (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any questions or if you would like to look at availability for this year!
The entire team is looking forward to having guests join us again. We appreciate your continued business and support throughout the changes and can’t wait to see you at Patagonia River Ranch.
All the best,
Jake and Anna
