Where is the Princess Cruise dock in Buenos Aires?

by meabarbara

I am making my own arrangements and need to know exactly where the Princess cruise dockin Buenos Aires is located. I've spent hours and I just cannot find where the cruise ships leave from on a map. I need to go from the dock to Jorge Newberry Airport. I need to plan where to leave part of my luggage to pick up after visit to Falls. Then will spend one night in B.A. and then go to the Int. Airport and home. Also arriving 3 days before cruise so would like to be not too far from the dock. thanks for help. Please give me street names or some land marks to use to find dock on a map. thanks much.

I believe the large cruise ships dock at Puerto Nuevo docks DArsena A/B/C/D. On a map this would be in the area between Jorge Newberry Airport and Puerto Madero, not far from the train station. Cross streets in the area are Ave Inmigrantes and Ave Castillo. Hopfully, someone else will confirm or correct me if I'm wrong. As far as storing your luggage, I would check with the hotel where you will stay your last night in BA. I am not sure about luggage storage at Jorge Newberry A/P. -Gary

Cruise ships berth at terminal four, the port's passenger terminal, which is about a half mile from the city center. There is a tourism office in the passenger facility as well. As for a specific address about the closest would be Avenida Tomas Edison y Calle 8. There will be plenty of taxis there but my advise would be to prebook a remise (private car hire) to have the driver meet you there so you are not competing with thousands of other passengers. The price will be a bit more than the taxi but not by much. The one I use and recommend is Dante, who speaks perfect English and would also be the best to advise you on a safe place to store your luggage. His web site is http://dantesairporttransfers.hazedaze.com/
There are many hotels close by, but you should not limit yourself to only those hotels closest to the port since the port is easily accessible from most of the central city. Really depends on how much you want to spend. Three of the closest major hotels would be the Sheraton Hotel and Convention Center, Marriott Plaza and the Hilton. But I would suggest booking one in the Recoleta district which is a much nicer area and easy to reach the port. There is the Four Seasons, The Park Hyatt Palacio Duhau and the Alvear which are all 5 star and very expensive. However if your budget is a bit less consider these,1) The Loi Suites Recoleta http://www.loisuites.com.ar/, 2) Melia Recoleta Plaza http://www.melia-boutique-recoleta-plaza.com/, a bit less expensive would be 3)Blue Tree Hotel Recoleta http://www.bluetreehotels.com.ar/bari/en/index.html, cheaper still would be the
4) Hotel Bel Air http://www.hotelbelair.com.ar/index.php

The city tourism web site can be very useful as well, www.bue.gov.ar .

Hope this helps and have a great visit to Buenos Aires

Travel Tips for Buenos Aires

Meat and Cafe culture

by Ekahau

Argentina has the highest per capita meat consumption in the world. Many gauchos have eaten beef for breakfast, lunch and dinner since they were children. You can envy them, Walter Glaser reports, because when you get a good steak in Argentina, it is the best on earth.

The first time visitor will find Buenos Aires to be a surprising city indeed. Don't expect anything like Rio, Mexico City, Santiago, or any other city with a distinct South American flavor. If Buenos Aires was a lady, she would be a French aristocrat, just a little past her prime but with a wealth of experience and with a twinkle in her eye. The city has a distinct Parisian feel, not surprising when you find that, in its heyday, the architects for a large proportion of city buildings had been brought out from Paris to replicate the ambiance of that city.
Today, Buenos Aires is a little run-down at the edges, mainly because of the economic mismanagement from the time of Peron. But Argentines are a resilient lot and like to live well. The impression is that things are picking up and that those who will visit Buenos Aires a decade or so down the line will see a city restored to its former glory.
Portenos (people of the port), as citizens of Buenos Aires call themselves, joke that Mexicans came from the Aztecs, Peruvians from the Incas, and Argentineans from the migrant ships that brought their ancestors from Europe. The average Porteno's greatgrandparents are likely to have been English, Italian, Spanish or German rather than South American Indian. When these Europeans first settled in Argentina and brought their cattle with them, the latter thrived on the rich grasses of the Pampas. No hormone shots or special feeds have ever been necessary to make Argentine cattle the superb animals they are. The combination of bounties that nature provided -- good feed, good climate, plenty of water and wide, open spaces -- did it all. The result is some of the finest beef in the world. And nowhere will you find bigger, better, juicier, tastier and more tender steaks than in the top Parrillas (steak houses) of Buenos Aires.

Barrancas de Belgrano

by sof76

Barrancas of Belgrano it's located (obviously) in Belgrano. On weekends many people can be seen dancing tango and salsa.

Barrancas de Belgrano queda (obviamente) en Belgrano.
Los fines de semana se pueden ver muchas personas bailando tango y salsa.

Tasty Empanadas

by cjg1

Argentine empanadas can be baked or fried depending on the occasion or cook. It is more common in the city to have a baked empanada. They are dough that is filled with filling and folded over into a half moon or triangle shape. Empanadas are not all the same with different fillings such as: beef, chicken or pork, Seasonings can also vary as well as the stuffing.

I have had several different types and styles of empanadas while in Buenos Aires and for the most part I like them all. They make a nice meal on the go or a good snack.

Estancias: a day in the countryside

by sabrina_florida

Either as a day or as a weekend trip, going to an estancia is a great choice. These usually consist of colonial houses sorrounded by extense parks, located in the countryside.
They played an important part in the Argentinean society in the past, but nowadays they are used as locations for wedding receptions as well as a place where to unwind at the weekends.
You can spend a day there (the lunch includes barbecue of course, and other typical foods from the countryside) walking around its parks, swimming in the pool, taking a nap under a big tree and horse riding. It's also a good way of escaping from the city, so most estancias offer rooms. Also, they offer the possibility of seeing what life is like in the countryside, and you'll meet gauchos, our cowboys.
Plenty of them are located 1 or 2 hours away from Buenos Aires. There are different sorts of estancias, some being very luxurious.
Check the website below to choose the one that suits you most. It has an English version.

The Mall of Argentina

by lkdahl about Unicenter

Unicenter is a long way from Centro and Recoleta. The taxi from Recoleta was $20 pesos and took about 30 mins. When I first saw the mall, the first thought that came into mind was the Mall of America in Minnesota.

Unicenter is by far the largest mall in Argentina. On weekends the place is packed with families, teens and other shoppers, just like any mall in the US. Actually it totally reminded me of a large surburban mall in the US.

The mall features 300 shops including a large supermarket , appropriately named Jumbo. It also has Argentina's only department store. There is a large food court and 14 screen cinema on the top floor. And just like the Mall of America, has an indoor theme park and amusement areas. Also like the MOA, there is a large parking garage that is attached to every level of the mall.

Unlike the malls within Buenos Aires, tourists are far and few. Getting taxi back into town is pretty easy but you'll need to wait 10 mins. or so. Outside the mall are taxi and remise stands. Anything and everything. As much or as little as you want.
