cell phone + wireless broadband
I will be travelling from US to Buenos Aires this december, need some information on:
- Cellphones, is easy to get a pre-paid cellphone in Buenos Aires, i currently have iphone and AT&t is charging insane amount for voice calls.
- Also need some information on mobile broadband card, if you can recommend any that i can take from US or any local companies, it would be much appreciated.
Thanks in advance for any information.
Re: cell phone + wireless broadband
Aseem, local mobile phones can be purchased fairly cheaply, there are three main providers in Cap Fed, Movistar, Claro and Personal. Here are there respective web sites http://www.movistar.com.ar/ http://www.claro.com.ar/ http://www.personal.com.ar/
As for mobile broadband here is the link for Claro http://internetmovil.claro.com.ar/

Hope this helps
Travel Tips for Buenos Aires
Come to La Boca. This area...
Come to La Boca. This area close to the port is where many immigrants settled during the last century. The colourful fasades along the Caminito street are very picturesque and you can find tango dancers and many restaurants in this area. LA Boca is very touristy and far away from the center, but it is still a great place to visit. We had lunch in a popular family owned restaurant. They were really kind and served us delicious empanadas and bife de chorizo.
Walking the dogs
In well-to-do neighborhoods like Palermo, we saw lots of professional dog walkers. Each walker held a bunch of leashes—they usually had 6-8 dogs with them.
Having someone else walk your dog is a status thing, and the neighbors would react if you did it yourself. (“Carla is walking her own dog? — Oh, No!”)
MY FIRST BIRTHDAY IN ARGENTINA
Hahahahah I will be very personal to write this tip, last wednesday was my birthday, and my first birthday in Argentina and also outside Brasil. sure Argentina had this honour, and I am honored to be here in Argentina together with my great and adorable friends of so so many times!
We went to an armanean and arabic restaurant in Nuñez, a very cool place called Garbis, very sophisticated restaurant with exquisite food.
In the picture it was my big big and best friend in South America, Mariano Rinaldi and my fantastic PRIMO (hahahaha) Gustavo Rinaldi, obviously you can tell that they are brothers, and also my brothers too!
Mariano and I are friends for more than 10 years, and this big man Gustavo I met when he was a little boy!
They are my family and my great reference in this wonderful city called Buenos Aires!
Palacio Barolo is a great place to get a stunning view over Buenos Aires. We stopped by for a tour of the building, the website says they are given on Monday and Thursday from 2pm to 7 pm and also by request if you contact them. The tour costs 10 pesos (roughly $3US) and includes the history of the building and how it's design was based on Dante's Inferno. The building's architect, Marco Palanti, designed a statue with a place for Dante's ashes to be placed, the ashes never came and the statue was stolen. The first stop on the tour is the lobby of the building which is supposed to represent hell, the medallions on the floor represent fire, dragons on the wall standing guard (east are female, west are male, honestly I couldn't tell the difference, maybe I need to study up on dragon anatomy LOL).
Then you take the elevators up to the top of purgatory for a look down at hell (floors 1-14 are purgatory), another elevator and a few very narrow flights of stairs takes you to heaven and a terrific view over Buenos Aires, especially of the Congreso, from the rooftop lighthouse.
And this little tidbit from Frommer's: "The building is also designed so that at 7:45pm on July 9, Argentine Independence Day, the Southern Cross directly lines up over the tower." Check it out for yourself if you happen to be there that day!
Tienda de venta de vinos artesanales y productos envasados, se puede encontrar productos argentinos de muy buena calidad y muy buen precio.
This is a store that sells local wines and other bottled products. There, you
can find high-quality Argentine products at a reasonable price. Vinos, dulces.
