Argentina: Best Tourist eSIMs Reviewed (2024)

Are you going to visit Argentina and want to use the (best) eSIM in the country?

Then you came to the right guide because I will analyze Argentina's best options.

You have probably noticed that there are many, many eSIM providers with eSIMs for the country.

Some are (suspiciously) cheap, while others are (unreasonably) pricey.

Sometimes, the cheap(er) options perform better than the expensive ones because the latter are price gouging.

For Argentina, I recommend eSIMs from any of these eSIM providers:

  • Airalo
  • Alosim
  • Holafly
  • Nomad

It launched in 2019 and is currently the largest eSIM provider, covering more than 200 countries and territories.

Fun fact: the first eSIM I ever tested was one from Airalo (on my dad's phone because I did not have an eSIM-supported device back then 🗿).

Airalo Abrazo (Argentina) eSIM

One unique thing Airalo does is give each eSIM a unique name instead of calling it “country eSIM”.

Its Argentina eSIM is called Abrazo.

And one Abrazo eSIMs are available for Argentina:

  1. Argentina/Abrazo 2 GB eSIM for 7 days, costing 15 USD – very popular with Phone Travel Wiz readers
  2. Argentina/Abrazo 6 GB eSIM for 30 days, costing 26 USD – most popular with Phone Travel Wiz readers

Note: Phone Travel Wiz reader popularity ranking was updated in December based on data up to the 30th of December (2023 data only). The (promotional) prices were updated on the 4th of March.

Airalo Latamlink eSIM

Next, we have the Airalo Latamlink eSIM to be used in Argentina and 18 other Latin American countries.

    Latamlink Latin America eSIM Airalo

Airalo introduced this eSIM after the success of its Europe eSIM, Eurolink (review), and Asia eSIM, Asialink (review).

Asialink Asia eSIM Airalo

Just like country-specific eSIMs in Latin America, the Latamlink eSIM is less generous but more expensive than its Asian and European counterparts.

Unfortunately, that is a Latin America-specific issue (Airalo has one of the lowest prices for this market).

These four Latamlink eSIMs are available:

  1. Latin America/Latamlink 1 GB eSIM for 7 days, costing 15 USD
  2. Latin America/Latamlink 2 GB eSIM for 15 days, costing 28 USD
  3. Latin America/Latamlink 3 GB eSIM for 30 days, costing 39 USD – most popular with Phone Travel Wiz readers
  4. Latin America/Latamlink 5 GB eSIM for 30 days, costing 60 USD – very popular with Phone Travel Wiz readers

Note: Phone Travel Wiz reader popularity ranking was updated in December based on data up to the 30th of December (2023 data only). The (promotional) prices were updated on the 4th of March.

Airalo Latamlink Latin America eSIM with Prices
See the list above for up-to-date prices and allowances. The figures in this image may be outdated.

You can use the Movistar Argentina network with the Latamlink eSIM in Argentina (without 5G NR access).

Besides Argentina, the Latamlink eSIM can also be used in the following countries:

  • Argentina
  • Belize 1
  • Bolivia
  • Brazil
  • Chile
  • Colombia
  • Costa Rica
  • Ecuador
  • El Salvador
  • French Guiana
  • Guatemala

  • Paraguay
  • Peru
  • Uruguay
  • Venezuela 1

Airalo Discover(+) eSIM

Lastly, we have the Airalo's global Discover and Discover+ eSIMs.

Airalo Discover eSIM
© Airalo
Airalo Discover+ eSIM
© Airalo

And when I say global, I mean global – it can be used in 120+ countries (Argentina included).

The difference between Discover and Discover+ is that the latter gives you an Austrian (+43) phone number and up to 200 international minutes and 200 international SMS.

As a result, the + variant is up to 20 USD more expensive than Discover… but the benefits are worth it (I only use Discover+ for testing purposes).

Regardless of which variant you choose, both have a maximum validity of 365 days (one year) and can use 5G NR in most destinations.

These 12 Airalo Discover(+) eSIMs are available:

  1. Discover 1 GB eSIM for 7 days, costing 9 USD
  2. Discover+ 1 GB (with 10 minutes and 10 SMS) eSIM for 7 days, costing 15 USD
  3. Discover 2 GB eSIM for 15 days, costing 17 USD
  4. Discover+ 2 GB (with 20 minutes and 20 SMS) eSIM for 15 days, costing 27 USD
  5. Discover 3 GB eSIM for 30 days, costing 24 USD
  6. Discover+ 3 GB (with 30 minutes and 30 SMS) eSIM for 30 days, costing 36 USD – very popular with Phone Travel Wiz readers
  7. Discover 5 GB eSIM for 60 days, costing 35 USD – very popular with Phone Travel Wiz readers
  8. Discover+ 5 GB (with 50 minutes and 50 SMS) eSIM for 60 days, costing 50 USD
  9. Discover 10 GB eSIM for 180 days, costing 59 USD
  10. Discover+ 10 GB (with 100 minutes and 100 SMS) eSIM for 180 days, costing 79 USD
  11. Discover 20 GB eSIM for 365 days, costing 69 USD – most popular with Phone Travel Wiz readers
  12. Discover+ 20 GB (with 200 minutes and 200 SMS) eSIM for 365 days, costing 89 USD

Note: Phone Travel Wiz reader popularity ranking was updated in December based on data up to the 30th of December (2023 data only). The (promotional) prices were updated on the 4th of March.

Airalo Global Discover+ eSIM with Prices
See the list above for up-to-date prices and allowances. The figures in this image may be outdated.

The Discover(+) eSIM can use the Claro Argentina and Movistar Argentina networks in Argentina (all with 4G/LTE access).

For an entire list of countries where the eSIM can be used, you should check out my ongoing Airalo Discover+ eSIM review.

Or use this map.

In every country I visit where I test country-specific Airalo eSIMs, I also try out its Discover+ eSIM (if it can be used there).

So you better check it out now and then to see if I wrote about the country/countries you plan to visit and read about the eSIM's performance in said country, as it is not always perfect.

Alosim is the only eSIM provider that gives you a phone number with each eSIM purchase.

Yes, you read it correctly – you can get a phone number, make calls & send text messages when you buy an Alosim Argentina eSIM!

That is because Alosim is owned by AffinityClick, which also owns the Hushed app.

Hushed Screenshot

Whenever you make an eSIM purchase, Alosim will send you a code worth up to 30 international minutes or 50 international SMS.

While you will not get an Argentine phone number (because of local regulations), you will get a +1 one (American or Canadian) from one of the more than 300 area codes.

But that is enough about phone numbers and Hushed – let's focus on Alosim.

It has eSIMs for Argentina and more than 170 countries worldwide.

Alosim South America eSIM

Unlike most South American eSIMs, Alosim is literal with its geographical definition of South America.

Most eSIM providers include some or all Central American countries (like Airalo's Latamlink eSIM), whereas Alosim does not.

This is not an issue if you plan to visit supported countries only, but I wanted to mention that more generous options (in terms of coverage) are available.

For a while, Alosim stopped selling its South American eSIM.

But it reintroduced it in December 2023 (and yes, I complained when it did remove the eSIM 😂).

Three options are available, which are listed below:

  1. South America 1 GB eSIM for 7 days, costing 20 USD
  2. South America 3 GB eSIM for 30 days, costing 41 USD
  3. South America 5 GB eSIM for 30 days, costing 64 USD

Note: Phone Travel Wiz reader popularity ranking was updated in December based on data up to the 30th of December (2023 data only). The (promotional) prices were updated on the 4th of March.

The same network is available with the South America eSIM as with the Argentina eSIM.

And yes, you will also get a Hushed phone number if you buy an Alosim South America eSIM.

The South America eSIM can be used in Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil (5G), Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Paraguay, Peru & Uruguay.

If you already have an eSIM variant in mind, just click on the links next to jump to the respective sections: Argentina & Latin America.

Holafly does not need an introduction because it is one of the most popular eSIM providers.

Mainly due to it being one of the few to offer unlimited data plans.

By the end of 2023, over 100 countries have unlimited eSIM options.

Holafly Unlimited Data eSIM Eligible Countries Map Infographic by Phone Travel Wiz (October 2023 Version)

And Holafly has eSIMs (including data-limited ones) in more than 160 countries.

Holafly Argentina eSIM

Latin American countries were among the last to get unlimited data plans (2023).

Fortunately, Argentina has them as well.

You have these Holafly Argentina eSIMs:

  1. Argentina unlimited data eSIM for 5 days, costing 27 USD
  2. Argentina unlimited data eSIM for 7 days, costing 34 USD
  3. Argentina unlimited data eSIM for 10 days, costing 37 USD – most popular with Phone Travel Wiz readers
  4. Argentina unlimited data eSIM for 15 days, costing 47 USD – very popular with Phone Travel Wiz readers
  5. Argentina unlimited data eSIM for 20 days, costing 54 USD
  6. Argentina unlimited data eSIM for 30 days, costing 79 USD – very popular with Phone Travel Wiz readers

Note: Phone Travel Wiz reader popularity ranking was updated in December based on data up to the 30th of December (2023 data only). The (promotional) prices were updated on the 4th of March.

Holafly Argentina eSIMs
See the list above for up-to-date prices and allowances. The figures in this image may be outdated.

Be aware that as of mid-2023, non-European Holafly eSIMs with unlimited data plans are speed-restricted up to 18 Mbps (the speeds are even slower in some countries, such as some Middle Eastern countries).

This speed restriction can affect the browsing experience you have with your eSIM.

Even when Movistar Argentina provides speeds faster than 18 Mbps in many places throughout the country.

Holafly Latin America eSIM

Just like most Holafly regional eSIMs, its former Latin America eSIM (then called South America) was kind of trash (compared to other eSIM providers).

It charged you 44 USD for 6 GB of data to be used in 15 days.

So, unless you spend one day per supported country (15 back then), this eSIM was too restrictive to be considered a regional eSIM.

Holafly South America eSIMs

Fortunately, Holafly updated its Latin America eSIM by introducing unlimited data plans.

But unlike its Europe eSIM (review), the Latin America one is quite expensive.

As an example, the maximum validity of both eSIMs is 90 days.

For the Europe one, you pay 99 USD (not too bad because it can be used in 32 countries).

Holafly Europe eSIMs

Whereas you are charged 214 USD for the Latin American one.

Even then, it will still be cheaper to get the Latin American eSIM instead of multiple country-specific Holafly eSIMs.

Speaking of prices, below is a price list for the Holafly Latin America eSIM:

  1. Latin America unlimited data eSIM for 5 days, costing 27 USD
  2. Latin America unlimited data eSIM for 7 days, costing 34 USD – very popular with Phone Travel Wiz readers
  3. Latin America unlimited data eSIM for 10 days, costing 44 USD – most popular with Phone Travel Wiz readers
  4. Latin America unlimited data eSIM for 15 days, costing 54 USD – most popular with Phone Travel Wiz readers
  5. Latin America unlimited data eSIM for 20 days, costing 64 USD – very popular with Phone Travel Wiz readers
  6. Latin America unlimited data eSIM for 30 days, costing 87 USD
  7. Latin America unlimited data eSIM for 60 days, costing 144 USD
  8. Latin America unlimited data eSIM for 90 days, costing 214 USD

Note: Phone Travel Wiz reader popularity ranking was updated in December based on data up to the 30th of December (2023 data only). The (promotional) prices were updated on the 4th of March.

See the list above for up-to-date prices and allowances. The figures in this image may be outdated.

Just like the Holafly Argentina eSIM, the same speed restriction applies to the Holafly Latin America eSIM.

The eSIM can be used in the following 14 countries:

  • Argentina
  • Bolivia (new) 1
  • Brazil
  • Chile
  • Colombia
  • Costa Rica
  • Ecuador

Nomad is an eSIM provider with plans covering over 160 countries.

2023 version

In the past, it was not competitive in Latin America because its plans were crazy expensive.

Nowadays, prices have dropped significantly and are sometimes comparable to the competition.

Unfortunately, it does not have a Latin America eSIM, but I have been told it is working on introducing one).

Nomad Argentina eSIM

Nomad has five eSIMs for Argentina:

  1. Argentina 1 GB eSIM for 7 days (Nomad), costing 10 USD – very popular with Phone Travel Wiz readers
  2. Argentina 1 GB eSIM for 7 days (eSIM Go), costing 11 USD – very popular with Phone Travel Wiz readers
  3. Argentina 3 GB eSIM for 30 days (eSIM Go), costing 20 USD – most popular with Phone Travel Wiz readers
  4. Argentina 5 GB eSIM for 30 days (eSIM Go), costing 28 USD
  5. Argentina 10 GB eSIM for 30 days (eSIM Go), costing 45 USD

Note: Phone Travel Wiz reader popularity ranking was updated in December based on data up to the 30th of December (2023 data only). The (promotional) prices were updated on the 4th of March.

Nomad Argentina eSIMs
See the list above for up-to-date prices and allowances. The figures in this image may be outdated.

The names in “()” are the partners Nomad uses to power its eSIMs.

eSIM Go is a provider used by many eSIM providers, including some mentioned in this guide ( Airalo and Holafly), making it a trustworthy provider.

Moreover, it is often cheaper than other providers Nomad uses in Latin America (such as Global1SIM, “Nomad” (unknown provider) & Truphone).

This is why I recommend eSIMs powered by eSIM Go over others (which is “Nomad” in the case of Argentina).

Nomad Global eSIM

At last, we have the Nomad Global eSIM.

Depending on your chosen variant, the eSIM can be used in 109 or 136 countries.

Truphone (rebranded to 1Global) powers the 109 Countries Plan, giving you up to 4G/LTE access.

Meanwhile, the 136 Countries Plan is powered by eSIM Go, giving you 5G NR access in about half of the supported countries (but none in Latin America except for Mexico).

Each plan has three eSIMs: 1 GB for 7 days, 3 GB for 30 days & 5 GB for 30 days.

Below is a price list of all the Nomad Global eSIMs:

  1. Global 1 GB eSIM for 7 days (109 Countries), costing 25 USD – very popular with Phone Travel Wiz readers
  2. Global 1 GB eSIM for 7 days (136 Countries), costing 10 USD
  3. Global 3 GB eSIM for 30 days (109 Countries), costing 40 USD
  4. Global 3 GB eSIM for 30 days (136 Countries), costing 24 USD – very popular with Phone Travel Wiz readers
  5. Global 5 GB eSIM for 30 days (109 Countries), costing 45 USD
  6. Global 5 GB eSIM for 30 days (136 Countries), costing 36 USD – most popular with Phone Travel Wiz readers

Note: Phone Travel Wiz reader popularity ranking was updated in December based on data up to the 30th of December (2023 data only). The (promotional) prices were updated on the 4th of March.

Because I have no ongoing review for this eSIM (its short validity makes it challenging to be a proper global eSIM), you can use the Nomad Global product page or the map below to find all supported countries.
