- Food and meal times in Argentina may be different to what you are used to in your country. Even though you should ask your family about their own customs, in general Argentineans’ customs are:

Breakfast: breakfast time is normally from 7 to 9 am.

For most families, breakfast is fast and light. They have cafe, milk, tea, toasts, bread, cookies, jam and butter. Argentineans do not have fried eggs, meat or bacon for breakfast.

Lunch:  Most people have lunch from 12:30 to 2 pm. Even though lunch is not included in the homestay, you should know that in Argentina lunch is similar to dinner.
