Argentina History

    In 1816, the United Provinces of the Rio Plata declared their independence from Spain. After Bolivia, Paraguay, and Uruguay went their separate ways, the area that remained became Argentina. The country's population and culture were heavily shaped by immigrants from throughout Europe, but most particularly Italy and Spain, which provided the largest percentage of newcomers from 1860 to 1930. Up until about the mid-20th century, much of Argentina's history was dominated by periods of internal political conflict between Federalists and Unitarians and between civilian and military factions. After World War II, an era of Peronist authoritarian rule and interference in subsequent governments was followed by a military junta that took power in 1976. Democracy returned in 1983, and has persisted despite numerous challenges, the most formidable of which was a severe economic crisis in 2001-02 that led to violent public protests and the resignation of several interim presidents. The economy has recovered strongly since bottoming out in 2002.

Travel to Argentina

    Travel Plug Adapters for Visits to Argentina: Be Prepared for Variations

    Argentina is increasingly becoming a popular tourist destination. Many people love its World Heritage sites and National Parks. They�re also quite enamored with Road 40. Considered to be the longest road in the country, it runs through three different regions and passes by countless tourist attractions of note. Among them are Andean passes, salt flats, lakes, public parks and rivers. Of course there may be a few glitches for travelers along the way.

    For example, although Argentineans have had access to electricity since the late 1880s, the industry wasn�t regulated until the 1940s. That�s when the government stepped in and started taking control. Unfortunately, it has not always been a smooth ride. Headlines in publications like The Wall Street Journal and Bloomberg Business tell part of the tale. However, despite the turbulence, Argentina�s power grid remains intact and functioning. There are just several things that international travelers need to know about travel plug adapters in order to safely operate their elec tronic devices in Argentina.

    Argentina�s power struggles have created a situation that makes variations in plug and outlet design commonplace. Consequently, some building may feature Type C Europlugs and others may be outfitted with Type 1 IRAM-2073s. As such, it�s vital to pack travel plug adapter kits that can at least accommodate both styles of plugs. Of course once all of the country�s businesses come into compliance with the government�s latest standards, only the Type 1 IRAM-2073 plug adapter will likely be needed. Until then, we�d recommend buying this Argentina Travel Plug Adapters Kit because it can accommodate the two plugs we mentioned earlier.

    Furthermore, the voltage available at tourist destinations along Road 40 is likely to run from 220 to 240 volts. That said, travelers accustom to using 110-120 volt electronic devices will need to take at least one of three additional steps before arriving in Argentina. First, they may want to buy a step-down transformer to pair with their travel plug adapters. The transformer is often needed to safely run cell phone charges and other electronic devices. Second, they may want to buy a voltage converter too. The voltage converter makes it safe and easy to use personal care items, like curling irons and hair dryers. Third, they could opt to buy personal care items that are capable of running on 220 to 240 volts. That would reduce the need for carrying a voltage converter around from place to place. To learn more about buying the perf ect travel plug adapters, personal care items, step-down transformers and voltage converters for visits to Argentina, please contact us at 110220Volts today.
