Buquebus: Has anyone taken it?

by bkq

I will be traveling between Buenos Aires and Montevideo and Colonia and am considering taking Buquebus. Any recommendations or experiences with it? I will have a lot of luggage. Is luggage safe and secure on the boat? What kind of accommodations are there for the trip? It is easy (for an English speaker) to catch a taxi where the Buquebus drops off passengers in Buenos Aires? Any information would be much appreciated.

There aren´t too many options for going between Uruguay and BA. There is another ferry company, but Buquebus is more popular. Your luggage will be safe and secure on the boat. The boats have first and second class seating. The only difference is probably a more comfortable seat in first class, which I´m suer is a waste of $$. Seats are the only type of accomodations that are offered. All sets are inside: there are no outside decks.Taxis line up for arriving passengers. Write the address of your destination and give it to the driver. Make sure that you always take radio taxis. They have their company name and telephone number on the taxi door.

Also, there is a normal and express service Buquebus. I recommend the express service, which cuts the length of the trip at least in half.

We're in Uruguay at the moment having come across from BA on Buquebus a few days ago. All luggage gets "checked in" like at an airport and you get a receipt so luggage is safe.

Easiest way to get from airport is taxi. The ferry terminal is modern and has a cafe / bar and loads of space to sit while waiting. Staff generally helpful and we found someone who spoke good English.

We paid A$245 each last minute on the express boat to Colonia (1 hour). I think Montevideo is a bit more expensive, and Colonia is definitely worth the visit - very pretty port town with cobbled streets and tree-lined avenues. :-)

Hope this helps and enjoy the trip!

Dog-walker

by ptitetoile

Dog-walker are something really typical of Buenos Aires : people are paid to walk the dogs of other people and watch over them a part of the day. They often hold 5 tot 10 dogs at a time by a leash. They use also the park to let them play more or less freely.

I was really curious about this custom and found information about it on the Internet.

According to one dog-walker, Juan Roccatagliata, interviewed by the China Daily on the 12/11/2004 : "It's well-looked on to have someone walk your dog. It gives you social status, just like having a house in the country or golf club membership."

This profession has a lot of success because it brings quite a lot of money (between 80 and 150 pesos (US$ 27-50) a month for each animal). It is possible to earn more than a teacher!
It has so much success that is now regulated by the authorities of the city :
-obligation to have a licence for more than 3 dogs (only 700 people are registred as having a licence...there are much more!)
-limit of 8 dogs at a time
-pay a fee of 200 pesos (US$67) every six months for the utilization of public space

Neighborhood Cafes

by EMGasu

People say there is a cafe on every Buenos Aires corner. Many times they are called "bars", but please do not think of them as typical American style bars (dark, crowded, neon lights, beer drinking). Nor they serve a variety of elaborated meals: BA cafes are equally suitable morning, day or night, they are often well lit, and the idea is to find a nice table by a window, sip a cup of coffee in a nice demitasse (no paper or plastic cups), maybe munch one or two medialunas (croissants) and watch life go by.

Now where are the best cafes? Your hotel concierge will probably suggest some nice places downtown (most noticeably Cafe Tortoni) or in San Telmo, the bohemian district. And they are all very good... but they are mostly for tourists. Don't get me wrong, locals are welcome and they do visit every now and then -but they don't hang out there.

There is a very complete list of historic bars / cafes on this website:

http://www.buenosaires.gov.ar/areas/turismo/actividades/?menu_id=74&info=bares

Click under "todos" and the list will appear. Some are true hidden gems, some are not, so here is my highly subjective list of the Best Neighborhood Cafes in BA (sort by name / address / neighborhood):

Cafe Argos - Av. Federico Lacroze 3499 - Colegiales (my VERY OWN neighborhood cafe!) - Metro
Cafe Margot - Boedo 857 - Boedo - Metro
Cafe El Coleccionista - Av. Rivadavia 4929 - Caballito - Metro
Cafe Dante - Boedo 745 - Boedo - Metro
Bar Aragon - Av. Juan B. Alberdi 4899 - Villa Luro
Britanico - Brasil 399 - San Telmo
Bar Oviedo - Av Lisandro de la Torre 2407 - Mataderos
Cafe de Garcia - Sanabria 3302 - Villa Devoto

With the exception of the Britanico, these places are far from the tourist circuit, but all of them are in perfectly safe areas and no more than 30 min on average by cab from downtown. Those listed as "Metro" have close access by subway. All others are easily accessible by bus.

Don't be afraid to try them. In all cases, these off the beaten path cafes are guaranteed to make you feel like a local! Enjoy!

beautiful architecture

by luzmaria about Galerias Pacifico

This is the most beautiful shopping mall i can think of, it is very trendy (and expensive) but it has art all over. it s nice to walk and see even if you don t buy anything, i m sure you ll enjoy the building and the paintings by Argentine artists such as Juan Carlos Castagnino, Antonio Berni, Cirilo Colmenio, Lino Spilimbergo y Demetrio Urruchua.

Two architects: Emilio Agrelo y Roland Le Vacher projected it in 1889 inspired by a passage in Milano–Italy - in the end of the XIX century– called Galería Vittorio Emmanuele II.

Inside the building there s the Centro Cultural Jorge Luis Borges and -the famous ballet dancer`s own dance academy - Escuela de Danzas de Julio Boca.
