Hi will be flying into Buenos Aires and will be in Argentina for 7 days. What must definately be visited in this hsort time?
Also we are interested in either going to Iguazu Fall for 3 days or down to El Calafate and the glaciers. Which would you recommend and why?
I see that the flights to both areas are very expensive of over350 return, however the bus rides are 20 hours which cuts our time short.
DO you know of any specials available or how we could fit these in to our itinerary.
Thanking you in advance
I am flying into EZE on 25th of December. I see that from 28th, only online payments will be accepted, but it does not say anything about if you can pay before that online or not.
Does anyone know?
I am going to have surgeries by Dr. Guerrisi. Need to look for an apartment to rent for about 2 weeks near Quintana Planta Baja. Could be a short distance away but need to watch my funds and avoid excessive pay to taxis to see my doctor for checkups after the surgeries. I was in a terrible acident almost 4 years ago and although I cannot afford this trip, less the surgery, I am ready to make me HAPPY. The accident left me disabled; therefore I am looking for an apartment without many stairs. Also, do we need Visas if we're leaving the U.S. to get to Buenos Aires. I am very concerned for our safety and pray this area is not such a bad location. Once I recover a bit, I would like to see a little of this location. But, if anyone knows of apartments for rent for about 2 weeks or a little more; please let me know. Thanks to all.Take care
I'm planning a trip to Argentina. I will be traveling by myself. However, I have heard about saftey issues in Buenos Aires. I know of two people who have been robbed by taxi drivers. If anyone one has any tips regarding safety issues and what scams and schemes to look out for in Buenos Aires, please let me know.
Does anyone knows any place to take few prived lessones in ba?
I am planning on going to Iguazu Falls and in doing so, I need to change airports in Buenos Aires. I will be landing at Ezeiza (EZE) and flying out of Jorge Newberry (AEP). I wonder how long it takes to go between airports and what is the best mode of transportation to do so.
My wife has to travel to BA for work. I'm considering tagging along and taking our little one with us. I know a few people who've been to BA and they loved it, but they're single, tango and salsa dancing people who went and partied the night away. They said BA was awesome and the people great, etc. but they barely saw the place in the daytime. So... not very helpful when I have to plan for a day with a toddler :)
So, a bunch of questions here:
1) Is it safe enough to bring my toddler? I'm not super risk averse myself but I haven't traveled much since we've had the kid. If I whip out the iPad to calm my kid down with some cartoons, are we going to get robbed?
2) The pics I've seen online show BA as a really bustling city. Are the streets really as jammed packed all day long as Tokyo?
3) Are there plenty of parks/playgrounds/places to walk around with my kid? I don't need/want disneyland, just somewhere to burn off some steam and get some exercise. Preferably without having to dodge traffic/worry that my kid will get run over if I don't have her on a leash/etc.
Any tips would be appreciated. This would be our 3rd trip with the little one and the first two were very short trips within the USA (we're Canadian, but the trips were short and to major cities). Thanks!
I will be visiting Rosario and Sante Fe with my son's rugby tour this July. Can anyone recommend golf courses where I might be able to play and rent clubs? Also, I would really appreciate some good restaurant suggestions for these two cities. Thanks.
We will be in Buenos Aires for one month this November, 2010. We want to stay in an hotel the first week and then an apartment for the rest of the trip.
We think it might be best to look for an apartment when we arrive, however, we are worried that as Novemeber is high season, there might not be a good selection of apartments in the Recoleta and Palmero neighborhoods.
Can anyone address the availablity of apartments in November in the Recoleta and Palmero neighborhoods when not booking ahead? If we just show up, and look, will there be a good selection of apartments available or will everything be picked over?
Although the hotels look great, we want to stay for at least three weeks and we would like an apartment in the Recoleta. Any suggestions on how to find one? Thank you!
Retirement in Argentina, any tips?
Hoping someone can offer some guidance or even the right websites to visit for the following..
Flying in and out of BA from Australia - and we want to head to Bolivia then across to Brazil and make our way back down the coast of Brazil and down south of Argentina before flying back out of BA - just wondering what the best option is to travel between BA and La Paz ( i see flights can be quite expensive - is there a train - obviously with stopovers on the way) also same from Bolivia across to Recife?
Look forward to recieving a response.
It is my understanding that there are 2 trains to Tigre from BA.: one the Tren de la Costa and the other a 'regular' train. I certainly want to tale Tren de la Costa one way but am unsure as to doing round trip. Are there any advantages doing RT? doing one one way and the other return?
Also is it necessary to take an excursion tour boat to really see the area, or can it be done by just using their 'water taxis' between points of interests and restaurants.
I'll be in Buenos Aires in a couple of weeks. I'd like to check out the nightlife but would like to go someplace where Americans over 40 wouldn't feel out of place. Any recommendations would be appreciated
Can anyone recommend me some good salsa places in Buenos Aires for dancing salsa! I am not looking for salsa classes, but bars or discos where I could hang out and dance salsa (with live music probably)!
My girlfriend and I will be visiting Buenos Aires from California during the Boca v. River game (19th of April, 2009)and were hoping to see the match. There is a place that does tours (tangol.com) where they pick you up and take you to the game with a bilingual guide. They are asking400 US. I know this is a huge match, but does that price sound right to you? Seems very high... What other options do we have? Can we purchase tickets the day of the match? Do we have to worry about counterfeit tickets? Does anyone live in BsAs? Have you been to any games there? Any tips you could give us would be greatly appreciated.
I am looking for airline that fly to Buenos Aires from London/Australia/or any country in asia pacific? The current flight from my country (malaysia) is way too expensive for a budget traveller like me.
Can anyone please recommned?
Has anyone stayed at this hotel? We will be there 25-29Feb09...or other suggestions are welcome.
On Sat 14th Feb Glasgow Rangers will play Glasgow Celtic at 1230 GMT.(roughly 0930 in BsAs I think?)
While I realise nobody in BsAs will give a monkeys , trust me it is our version of Boca v River. Does anyone know where I could watch this game or if there are Supporters Clubs of either team in BsAs which might be showing the game on some obscure satellite channel.
Many thanks for any replies
My sister and I will be going to Buenos Aires end of October/ begining of November.
We've both never been before and don't know where to stay. We are looking into the Hilton in Puerto Madero because it seems very nice and affordable. But I have no idea about the location.
We are 24 and 27 and not really into the club scene, but we would like to try nice restaurants and cafes, and do sight-seeing and shopping during the day.
We are willing to pay for cab rides, throughout the city, but don't know how expensive they are.
Can anyone suggest an Estancia relatively near to BsAs. We will be in BsAs in Feb 09 and we are looking for one which has a bit of luxury and will cater for inexperienced riders.
Can you also suggest when we should try and book the estancia ie do they get fully booked months in advance.
Many thanks in advance

Dear forum members,
Early October we will arrive in Buenos Aires and spend a few days here before we start exploring the rest of the country. We will be travelling with young children. Can any of you recommend particular areas in Buenos Aires where we should (or should not) find accommodation? Perhaps even some recommendations for accommodation itself (hotel/apartment, medium price)? Any tips where to go in Buenos Aires with small children?
All help is highly appreciated!
Cheers, fam. Van den Heuvel.
I'm planning to ski Bariloche in August. It'll be my first time in Argentina, though I'm not a stranger to international travel other places. Naturally, my flight into the country lands at EZE, but then the flight to Bariloche leaves from AEP. What's my best bet (American with VERY limited Spanish -- enough to stumble my way through a basic transaction, I think, if I can get you to be patient and speak slowly to me) for getting myself from EZE to AEP? Although I haven't decided for certain if I'll take them, assume that I'm going to have my 185 cm skis with me. Once I clear customs and all, where should I be going to get transportation to AEP? What should I be looking for? Expected cost and duration of drive?
Thanks for any help!
We're looking at a particular tour from "Gotmyfare" that would have us stay at the Hotel Sarmiento or Roma Plaza(or equivilant) in BA, and the Hotel Atlantic or Hotel Royalty(or equivilant)in Rio. Has anyone ever used them? What's your experience with them?
Any info on hotels and/or location would be appreciated. Also, we would be traveling in December. What's the weather like then? I know it's Summer.
Please do not suggest independent travel.
Hola! I just moved to Bahia Blanca and was wondering what the possibilities are in the area for outdoor activities (hiking, biking, etc) and nature observation? I'd like to add that I do not have a car...
Thanks in advance for your suggestions!! :-)
We are a family of 4 that will travel Argentina for the first time in October-November 2007. Because we will travel with small children (2 and 4 years old at that time) we would like to travel as few as possible. We are thinking of travelling one day or night and then stay at one place for at least 3-5 days. As accomodation we prefer cabanas/apartments/family rooms (in hotels or hostels).
We would like to spend one week of our stay in Argentina on the beach (just to relax on the beach with the kids and maybe do some day trips to interesting places). We were thinking of staying at Miramar in either October or November, on our way from or to Buenos Aires.
The questions we have:
1. Is Miramar a good choice for a week beach holiday with small kids?
2. Are there any interesting site trips (also for kids) to do from this place?
3. Can you recommend accomodation that is not too expensive?
Thanking you in advance!
