If you’re considering a cruise through South America sometime soon, you may want to double check the cost of docking and marine services in Argentine ports. Marine service provider Inchcape Shipping Services (ISS), which recently expanded its presence in Latin America with an office in Port Montt, Chile, sent out an advisory concerning the rise of inflation in Argentina. Inflation rates currently fluctuate between 20 to 30 percent and could soon affect the cost of docking in Argentina’s ports. The company anticipates a 23-percent increase in the cost of mooring in the ports of San Lorenzo, Rosario and San Nicolas as of October 1, 2012 and cautions that this increase may become a nationwide phenomenon.
