    Great Boutique Hotel and Good Location Too

    by

    I was quite pleased when I checked in and saw that the rooms and hotel actually lived up to the advertisements and descriptions I was told. The staff were the first impression and were very helpful and polite. They all speak fluent English and Spanish.

    The rooms are extremely modern and well decorated. The beds are large, comfortable and offer a great night's sleep.

    The room has all the standard amenities like a table, desk, mini-fridge. The electrical outlets are all Argentinian with one plug near the desk being USA/Canadian style flat-pin.

    The bathrooms are spacious and unlike most hotels in the area, the actually have a full size bathtub.

    Location is also nice. It is on a quiet street so there is no noise to wake you, but it is about 6 blocks (10~15 minutes) north of Plaza Cortázar, one of the prime night life areas of Palermo Soho.

    Unique Quality: All rooms have A/C, Bath Tub, mini-fridge, flat screen TV.
    All guests are provided with free WiFi and breakfast.

    Directions: Near intersection of Guatemala and Uriarte. About 6 blocks north of Plaza Cortázar, one of the prime night life areas of Palermo Soho.

Buenos Aires to Iguacu Falls to Rio for the Carvnival

by tashadunne

Can anyone tell me how long it would take to travel from BA to Rio stopping off at the Iguacu falls. I want to do this as fast (and cheap) as possible because I'll be stuck for time but want to appriciate it the falls too. Should i stop at both sides or just one side??

Tnx

by TexasDave

Unfortunately in this case "fast" and "cheap" cannot exist in the same sentence. Fast is a short plane ride but fares are high. Cheap is by bus but it is a long trip.
We stayed entirely on the Argentine side and spent most of a day exploring the different trails. Besides the Falls there's not too much to explore.

by boasnovas

By bus, one day from BA to the falls, then if you want to see both sides 2 more days or 1 day if you wake up very early and do not explore too much (best view from brazilian side but you get closer to the falls and more places to explore on argentinian side .12 hours to Sao Paulo then 6 hours to Rio.

Re: Buenos Aires to Iguacu Falls to Rio for the Carvnival

by t_guy

I would plan a good half day plus to visit the Argentina side and a half day for the Brazilian side. It is worthwhile and I recommend you visit the Falls from both countries. The Iguazu Falls are an amazing sight! -Gary

by rkearns

yeah i don't think it's going to be fast at all. i bused from buenos aires to florianopolis (about 9 hrs south of rio) and it took 36 hrs.

I cannot add much to the travell suggestions but I think you should plan two days to see the falls. The Argentinian side is best in the afternoon when the sun is behind you and you get the rainbows. Explore all the walks including the Garganta del Diablo. You can get a boat ride across to the San Martin Island if the water level is not too high. We could not get to either the Garganta or the Isla due to a massive flood but the waterfall was so spectacular that it more than compensated!

On the Brazilian side you can take a boat ride to right under the falls. They ask you how wet you want to get! Beware of the coatis - racoon-like creatures that will steal anything they can get hold of.

Just outside the park entrance on the Brazilian side is a mgnificent bird park. It was rather expensive but really very very nice.

Have a look at my VT pages, there is an album on Iguazù.

Travel Tips for Buenos Aires

LANGUAGE CLASSES

by MDC6

If you're going to be in Buenos Aires for a while, you can take language classes. The options are pretty much endless, but one place I would recommend is the Instituto de Enseñanza Superior en Lenguas Vivas Juan Ramón Fernández, located at 1515 Carlos Pellegrini near Retiro. It's a public elementary/high school, but it offers private language classes in the evenings. I took an Arabic class here, and it was a lot of fun. The class was small, which allowed for a lot more teacher-student interaction. They offer a lot of languages. Some of the ones that I remember: Arabic, Spanish, Portuguese, German, Italian, English, and French. The school is housed in a very impressive old mansion, with a nice interior patio (see below).

Boca's building pictures

by DPando

Some Bs As quarters has a lot of collapsed buildings but La Boca sounds like all is the same... in some features remember some places or buildings that everybody have seen in La Habana....mostly are with 2 or 3 floors and with dirty facades and wide sidewalks ..in the other hand Caminito and the most touristic streets with its colourfull houses and souvenir stalls doesnt remember at all those places .... just find out where is better moving to find these "hidden" areas ..and be aware !!

Meat, meat, and more meat

by Gypsystravels

One of the first things that most people now about Argentinians is their love of Meat!!! Beef is a big part of Argentinian life and everywhere you go you will find that every single restaurant has at least a few choices of beef at very reasonable prices.

My experience here in Buenos Aires was that the succulent choices of beef were far more filling and cheaper than any type of chicken on the menu.

So, eat Meat!!!

Colonia del Sacramento, Uruguay

by b1bob

Take a day trip to Colonia del Sacramento, Uruguay. It's real easy. Organise a package that includes the ferry, the tour and the meal all for one price (oddly enough, drinks alcoholic and otherwise are not included). Colonia del Sacramento is the first place Europeans settled in present day Uruguay. It was owned by both the Spanish and the Portuguese, they fought over it and the Spanish won it. Colonia del Sacramento is a good day trip to take that is a change from the hurried city life in Buenos Aires.

It's like shopping in little HongKong!

by ets about Calle Florida (Florida street)

Just like any small shoe store in the USA, except the prices for high quality shoes are 1/3 less. Shoe salespersons were very helpful too.
There are literally hundreds of shops along Florida and Lavalle streets, and they are restricted to pedestrians. The locals shop here and prices are not inflated. I bought loafers for $55 USD;the same pair would have cost $160 USD in San Francisco. For 2 high quality leather jackets and a pair of nice shoes, around $400 USD. Throw in another $15. USD for a grilled NY cut & wine at La Estancia on Lavalle and you'll experience one of the best shopping days of your life, as well as help in turning around Argentina's economic plight.
