Buenos Aires Embraces Remote Work Trend With New Initiatives


Buenos Aires, Argentina–The Buenos Aires Tourism Board has launched an aggressive tourism promotion campaign, hoping to be among the region’s leading hubs for digital nomads this year.

According to a press release, the National Institute for Tourism Promotion in Argentina projected the city to attract 22,000 remote workers by 2023.

Often referred to as the ‘Paris of South America,’ the capital of Argentina, Buenos Aires, was reported to have had the most significant recovery in the tourism sector in the country over the last year. It was also found to have surpassed pre-pandemic numbers in areas such as employment and domestic spending.

Argentina launched a digital nomad visa in May last year, closely following Brazil, Ecuador, and Colombia. Its capital city is already one of the leading destinations for digital nomads worldwide.

The Buenos Aires Tourism Board has also been striving to promote inbound tourism through various initiatives, including partnering with the homestay booking platform Airbnb in their ‘Live and Work Anywhere’ program

The city is trying to develop its prospects for cultural tourism by investing in projects that aim to exhibit and preserve the city’s cultural heritage. 

Buenos Aires has a signature city plan with wide roads lined with lush green trees. The seasonal Jacaranda bloom turns the city purple during November and December. 

One of the city’s main attractions is its culinary culture across the spectrum, including many Michelin Star restaurants and world-famous street food. Some of the iconic, must-try dishes in the region include Asado (barbeque), Choripán (beef/pork sausage sandwich), and Empanadas (wraps).

Over the last decade, the city has undergone major infrastructural development projects, including the ‘Sustainable Mobility Plan’ (development of the city’s public transit systems efficiency and capacity), the creation of green zones (where environmentally sustainable practices have been implemented), and the ‘Argentina Grande’ program which involves more than 120 water and infrastructure projects around the country to mention a few.

  1. The global push continues for enticing digital nomads to stick around. I dig it. One couple we house sat for visited Argentina and loved it. The entire crew went out to eat for $20 USD and it was wine, steak and fixings for an entire family. Talk about a favorable exchange rate, right?
