Antarctica Jan 8, 2022

I am booked to go on the Jan 8 Antarctica trip, but am concerned because Argentina remains on the CDC "Avoid List" as of this time, despite a decline in both their infection and death rates and rising vaccinations. Remembering the crowds at the Ezeiza airport in Buenos Aires on my last visit there, I am considering the potential risks of 3 visits to that airport on this trip, standing in the various immigration, customs and security lines, despite my being vaccinated. Do any other travelers on that date have similar concerns, or further information or insights on this? Thank you.

    We are on the January 19 trip. We have recently done two back to back cruises on the “Star Breeze” in the Caribbean, and we did the ‘Treasures of the Med. Isles’ with Tauck on Ponant’s Le Bougainville. We have been to St. Maarten, Barbados, St. Lucia, Antigua, Munich, Marseille, Nice, Elba, Corsica, Sardinia, Sicily, Malta, and Frankfurt. I have no concerns about the EZE airport. All of the airports we have been to were jammed with people. Several of the places we went to were ‘Level 4’. The people you come closest to will all be vaccinated. Go for it. The Antarctica trips were ‘available’ before Argentina announced their opening plans. They are now ‘sold out’.

  • Thanks Sealord for your reply. We have been to all the places you mentioned with Tauck, but well before COVID19. I am leaning toward going to Antarctica, but still thinking about the Level 4 risk. There are daily statistics on the status in Argentina, which appear to be improving. I will monitor those for a while longer.
