Let's start with some tips to make travelling to Argentina easier while avoiding the cultural shock.
Don’t do the "Okay" hand gesture. It’s like telling someone to go F*ck themselves or sticking your middle finger at them.
They do understand what the middle finger stands for. In fact, the gesture is used quite often. They've likely learned it from watching American films and television or meeting expats from the States. Avoid making that gesture too. It's tacky.
Avoid talking about the dispute with the Falkland Islands (aka Islas Malvinas). This is a very touchy subject for Argentineans. If you happen to speak about the islands, refer to them as Las Malvinas. My advice is to avoid the subject completely.
Burger King and McDonalds can be found in Argentina
You won't find Taco Bell, IHOP, Chili's, Bennigans, or Denny's.
You will find Wendy's and KFC in Buenos Aires though.
Films Released In Movie Theaters
Movies that premiere in the United States will usually premiere in Argentina in standard and 3D format within four weeks. You can watch them in English with Castillian subtitles or dubbed in Castillian.
