Do any of you know a good guide in Buenos Aires? All this is still tentative and may not even happen, but I am helping plan a South American cruise from Valparaiso to Buenos Aires for a group of senior citizens next February. We would need a guide for a day when we depart the ship, and possibly transportation from a hotel to the airport the next day. I don't have a feel for the number of passengers yet--probably between 4 and a dozen..
Are there some good, reasonably priced hotels in or near the historic downtown?

I have been researching safety in Argentina and have ran across many conflicting conclusions as to how safe or unsafe the city of Buenos Aires is. I am a 23 year old female planning to travel in Argentina this November. I have read many stories about frequent pick pocketing and theft but would like to hear some insight about other safety issues (kidnaping, assault ect..) Is traveling alone to Buenos Aires an unwise decision? Are single young American females more of a target for potential crime? If anyone has any recent information it would be greatly appreciated.
My wife and I were in Buenos Aires 3 weeks ago and met an English guy who wanted to buy dollars. I was gonna look for people offering in the street, because I heard that's where you get the best rates, but the guys at the hostel told me it was a bad idea. Anyway, the English guy exchanged everything for us, making it hell of a lot safer and easier than I expected. He said he's always looking to buy dollars if possible. Am I allowed to post his email address here?
Trying to find out if the no liquids rule applies on flying from Buenos Aires to Santiago on LAN. Also, do you really need 3 hours for check in if you have already checked in on line and are planning to carry on? Leaving early tomorrow so any help would be appreciated.
I will be in BA and I want to know if you guys know a good place to stay..I was told that recoleta area is a nice place
Hi, I will be in Buenos Aires in September and I am interested in taking tango lessons. Can anyone recommend classes or teachers?
I’m going to be in Buenos Aires for a week or two at the start of my trip, can anyone recommend good places to party?
With all the information about counterfeit pesos, has anyone used a counterfeit pen to test the currency?
We are vacationing in Buenos Aires in June for 12 days.
My head is spinning with all that I've read re taking dollars, ATM's, credit cards, Xoom and "blue" rate.
I'm hoping to hear from someone that has just returned or is in Argintina with so of wisdom.
Hi! I am planning for a trip in either July or August. Are there any outdoor tango events and activities to do? Also, I am Canadian and used to harsh winters. How cold should I expect it to get and what should I bring to wear? Thanks for your responses !
Tell me your experience...
Hello, I am planning a trip to Buenos Aires. How much can I expect to pay for a typical Omega watch? Let's say a Planet Ocean. Is it less expensive to buy something like this in the USA?
I am going to Buenos Aires in a cruise ship departing from Santos , Sao Paulo, the ship stops in Buenos Aires for 2 days. It is better to stay that night in the hotel or sleep in the Cruise ship, for example the distance from the Sao PAulo center to Santos is 1h 1/2 driving. Is In Buenos Aires the same?
I paid the reciprocity fee online, but wasn't near a printer to print it. Now I have forgotten my password and it won't send it to me. I have called all the numbers on the website and have emailed all the links, and no one has gotten back to me. Who should I contact to get the proper my password or my reciprocity form?
I will be in BA on Sunday April 7th, from 8am through 10pm while I am taking a "mileage run" to earn Airline miles... if anyone wants to show a fellow traveler around, I would love to have a driver or expert in the area! I am glad to pay for gas and buy lunch and dinner!
What will they cost to buy
Can You please clear this subject up foe me. I land at AEP Buenos aires. I have 8 days in BA so will be buzzing around the city. Can I buy a Sube card at AES Airport on arrival, if so where in the airport ? How much can/should I load on it, and is it easy to buy and use ?
I like this system, Hong Kong have an octopus card where by you can travel on any form of transport and even use it in places like McDonalds, So very convenient and at the end of your trip you can get back any balance left on it,
My husband and I have rented an apartment for a month in the San Telmo area of Buenos Aires, on the corner of Defensa and Chile. Now we've started to hear that San Telmo isn't safe at night, and we're having second thoughts. Our potential landlady says it's the main street of the area, is quite safe, and has an active night life. We have no way of judging what's true. Does anybody have experience with that area, and specifically, with that part of it?
Hi will pesos be accepted on the Brazilian side?
Please reply urgently.
Thanks to all.
Where can I buy Cuban cigars from a reputable retailer in central BA?
Hi VT'ers, would really appreciate your thoughts on what area of Buenos Aires you all would recommend my wife and I look for a apartment in.
We are going to rent a apartment for 10 days and cant decide what part of town we want to base out of. A friend of ours mentioned Palermo but I notice there are a few area's even around Palermo to consider.
We are going to be there March 5th through the 15th (if that would make any difference). We like to stay in places that have easy access to transportation (preferably the subway), has shopping markets available (we like to cook our own meals occasionally) and has a vibrant street life but not to noisy. I know, I know, this sounds so picky. Actually we're pretty easy but these would be our preferences if it's all available in a place to stay.
Thanks everyone that have even made it this far in my post. And thanks to all that respond.
Have a great holiday season everyone!
First of all I wanted to ask the typical question of what the best highlights for me and my wife to visit in about 7 days. We are both very early 30s. Is there anything new that we should not miss for example? What about history? We don't really want to go to museums but we like architecture and beautiful places and would like to see some history. Even someone mentioned the old cemetery - is this something to see really or just boring?
Anyway second point and this is the BIG point is we both do not eat beef. Now I know the big thing in Argentina is steak so I wanted to know will there be plenty of other options like pork and chicken and lamb in barbecue or grill style for us??? Does anyone know any good places where we could get this?
We are staying in between Palermo and Recoleta and will be there just after new year.
Thanks for all your help guys.
Which are the best tango schools in Buenos Aires?
Thank you to all the forum mebers that have assited me. I have my airline ticket. I found a phenomenal hotel with amazing reviews within my budget. Now to my next question. I have heard soooo many diferent opinions. So here is my questions:
* Cash better than ATM? The hotel is asking for cash. I wonder if it is going to be better to carry cash. Emergency: Use ATM.
* I understand that I can get a better rate than the normally posted AR$4.60 at places called "cuevas" where I can get a rate as good as AR$ 6.50. I have ben told that ask the hotel for a recomendation on a "cueva." Anyone has experienced exchanging in locations like this? Any other places that are recomended to get a better exchange rate? Name and address will be great. I am staying close to San Thelmo.
* Is true that you are only allow to exchange large bill of50 and100?
* Any other information that I should know.
I am aware that the airport is not the best place to exchange. It is the same way were I come from in Panama. Banks usually are not the best place to exchange but "casas de cambio" or "Houses to Exchange" locations are the best choice.
Thank you in advance.
