October has begun and, although they are not just around the corner, the summer holidays are less and less. Miamiwith its paradisiacal beaches and shopping malls, appears each season as one of the international destinations most chosen by Argentines to vacation.

In this context, facing a summer with far fewer restrictions on international travel than the previous season, Infobae surveyed the cost of a trip to Miami from Buenos Aires to a couple for 15 daysthe chosen dates, which were selected solely for reference and example, are between January 1 and 15, 2023.

In the first place, it was found that, at the time of writing this article, the cheapest round trip flight for two people is from $705.437 pesos, according to the website of the Volalá travel agency.

To determine the cost of lodging, the options listed on Booking, one of the world’s largest tourist rental sites, were reviewed. Among the different options that appear, a hotel accommodation was chosen with a score of 7.8 points out of 10, which has a total value of $516.597 pesos (USD 3.485).

Now, once the two biggest expenses that have to be made when embarking on a vacation have been defined, airfare and lodging, it is time to add expenses that a couple could have during 15 days in Miami. To do this, data from Numbeo -a site that records and compares the cost of living in a large number of cities in the world- in dollars were used and converted to Argentine pesos using the price of the tourist dollar in 271.83 pesos.

Imagining that the couple will eat some 8 times in restaurants of average levelI would spend a few $212.027 (USD780); if you also decide eat on the go at cheap gastronomic points another 10 times during the stay, you have to add a few $97.858 (USD 360) pesos. It could also be assumed that the couple will drink a few 20 local beers, about 5 bottles of wine, 10 soft drinks and about 9 bottles of bottled water; if this were the case, they should budget other 59.952 pesos (USD 220).

To conclude the estimation of the tourist basket, different supermarket products that the vast majority of people consume were considered. Here they were selected: 2 kilos of roast beef -this is the only cut of meat for which data is available-, 3 kilos of oranges, 2 kilos of white sliced ​​bread, 1 kilo of bananas and 2 kilos of chicken breasts. A purchase of such characteristics in Miami would have a value in pesos for the couple of 23.774 pesos (USD 87) .

With all this in mind, according to the tourist basket that made up Infobaean Argentine couple who wish to travel to Miami during the first fortnight of January, could do so with a travel budget of $1,617,926 Argentine pesos, or what is the same to say according to the exchange rate of the tourist dollar at 271.83 pesos, about $5,952 total.

Once again, it is important to note that the prices used to make up this travel budget were taken at the time of writing the article, so they could change as the days go by. As for the data taken from Numbeo, they are averages made by the site, so some of the products mentioned here could be found at a different rate in Miami.
