Our Travel Budget In Córdoba, Argentina

Cordoba (Córdoba) is right in the center of Argentina and was the second stop on our slow travel journey through the country. It is Argentina’s main university city and has an abundance of students living here. We spent a month (30 nights) in Cordoba and also had a chance to explore some of the surrounding areas as well. Here is a breakdown of our slow travel budget for Cordoba, Argentina.

Housing – $575

Our one-bedroom apartment was in a high-rise building in the Nuevo Cordoba neighborhood. This is the newly renovated and more modern section of the city and close to just about everything. Our apartment was very comfortable and we quickly felt at home here.

Food (Groceries and Restaurants) – $319

We did most of our cooking in our apartments as usual. We did enjoy several trips to a nearby gluten-free bakery that had some delicious treats.

One of the highlights of our time in Cordoba was going out to eat with Ellen, a former student who was in Cordoba for a study abroad program. It was great to see a familiar face after being away from home for so long.

Activities – $60

In addition to visiting Cordoba’s historical plazas, we also did a couple of day trips to some areas outside the city. We visited Villa General Belgrano, which is a German settlement with some charming architecture and fine restaurants. We also visited Carlos Paz, a resort town on a beautiful lake.

Transportation – $95

Most of this was for bus tickets from Mendoza to Cordoba, but also includes the local buses we used to get around town and the area.

Miscellaneous – $38

This is for all those important extra things like toilet paper, soap, toothpaste, paper towels, etc.

Total travel budget in Cordoba, Argentina: $1,087

Argentina is going through some tough economic times right now and we know many people in the country are struggling with the high inflation. But this has allowed us to have a very reasonable travel budget in Cordoba while living very comfortably. In addition to this amount, we also pay $175 per month for a global health insurance policy that covers both of us (our coverage is better than our previous policy in the US and at a fraction of the price!). We enjoyed Cordoba, but are looking forward to our next stop, too!
