I'm hoping to travel to Argentina for a few months before i go off to other places and want to know how difficult it will be to find part-time work as a foreigner. I hear pretty bad stuff about not being able to find work there.

accept the bad stories as truth, then make them twice as bad; that's reality.

Forget about finding a job, let alone a legal one; it's really quite impossible. I'd strongly recommend against even trying, to save you a lot of frustration. Better save up before coming over :)

good luck,

Oh bugger! I really was hoping to stay in Argentina for a while to absorb the people and the culture but I can't stay there for longer than two weeks without a job. I think I'll have to work and travel in other places and then go to Argentina for a holiday then. Thanks for the information!

I may just add that his advise covers South and Central America total.
