Conclusion: Is Argentina a good place to Retire?
Yes, it is, but if the question is:

Is Argentina a good place to live?
Then the answer gets more complicated.

There is a considerable space for misinterpretation because often people consider that a good place for retirement is also a good place to live under different circumstances. This is not the case in Argentina. 

The life of a resident with his income in Euros or Dollars will be completely different from someone else with a local job and earning in Argentinian Pesos. Said that, and considering only the case of people with earnings in foreign currency, here are the pros and cons of living in Argentina.

Advantages of retire in Argentina
Low living costs (in foreign currency).
Pleasant weather and diverse climate.
Not much of a cultural shock for anyone used to western, and specially southern-European habits.
Spanish is an easy-to-learn language if you are an English speaker.
Relatively safe when compared to neighboring countries, with crime levels similar to the USA.
Disadvantages of retire in Argentina
Unstable economy
It is relatively dangerous when compared to Europe. (If you prefer the safety of the old continent, there is also a list of the best cities to retire in Europe).
A low percentage of English speakers (only 6% of the total population).
Most of these advantages and disadvantages would apply not only to retirees but also to digital nomads and remote workers. Unfortunately, these two categories have an additional problem in Argentina: free Wifi is not a popular thing there and Internet is unreliable. However, the best city for digital nomads in the world is not far from there...check my other videos to discover it!
