Travel With Say Hueque – COVID-19: Breaking News
Our Travel Dreams are Healthy
As we all know, difficult times came to stay. The start of the COVID-19 crisis put the world upside down. However, we’re now starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel, and this could not be possible without the effort of so many people that stayed at home, the hard work of doctors and scientists, and the love and support of our travel community.
We want you to know that despite the rough wave, our travel dreams are healthy and ready to hit the road again.
Are you feeling the same? Maybe you still have some doubts especially about the sanitary situation in other countries, and the restrictions and protocols to circulate and lodge.
We’ve been thinking about all that too. Let’s read!
What has happened in Argentina since the COVID-19 crisis started?
Well, first the Government declared the lockdown in the whole country for around two weeks, which has been extended several times and is in full practice still today at least in Buenos Aires. During these months, most of the provinces have been opening and restricting that lockdown according to the increase or absence of new cases, and many of them are following different phases of opening and restriction of the local circulation and the circulation between provinces.
Buenos Aires, our capital, for instance, has maintained the lockdown (with few flexibilizations from time to time) since the 21st March. The government makes regular announcements to notice about the extension of the quarantine. In the latest, some shops, cafes and restaurants got permission to reopen their doors applying the safety protocol (outdoor tables and regular sanitizing). The government still ask the population to stay at home as much as possible, use face masks in the street, and respect social distancing.
The Government of Argentina faced the crisis in advance which helped to preserve the population and avoid the collapse of the health system. This procedure has been applauded by the international community and keeps going until today.

What are we planning to make you feel safe traveling with us?
Our commitment in regular times has always been to the safety of our environment, the communities we visit and to our travelers. And that has not changed. As professional explorers, we are used to changing and adapting to the circumstances. We’ve been working on a new Safety Protocol to be prepared for your next visit. Just to share a few items of this new protocol with you:
Before starting your tour experience, the “good neighbors” talk
We want to make sure that you know the most important safety measures you will have to respect and follow once in Argentina. Your tour guide will explain the safety measures before, during and after the tour so you can evacuate all your doubts and avoid any inconvenience during your travel experience. For i.g, do not share your personal belongings, do not remove your face mask during the tour.
Hand sanitizer in every vehicle
Every vehicle will be furnished with big hand sanitizers which will be administered by our guides to avoid crowds around the dispenser. Each time you hop-on and off the vehicle, our guides will sanitize your hands.
We’ll be all wearing face masks during the trip
During the tour experiences, tour guides, drivers and you, we’ll be all wearing face masks, and we’ll try to minimize personal contact, avoid shaking hands or sharing beverages (like the mate, our tea-type national drink). We’ll always bring a first-aid kit adapted to the kind of tour we’ll be enjoying. In case of long excursions (more than 2 hours), we’ll bolster hygiene and sanitizing measures inside the vehicle (special sanitizing protocol for vehicles which includes frequent ventilation of spaces) and hand sanitizing.
Documentation before and while traveling
We’ll send all the documentation you’ll need to access some of the attractions and places you’ll visit so you can send it back to us before your travel starts (let’s avoid unnecessary paperwork when you get here). If necessary, the same procedure will be applied during your trip.
