Local phone calls

by Isabel2010

Hello deal virtual tourists,

I am from Germany and will be attending a Conference in Buenos Aires with my colleagues from work. During the conference which will last about 10 days, we will have to call each other very often.
What do you reckon would be the best solution :
- buying a sim card just for the 10 days ? If yes where and what which company sell such things ? How much do they cost approx. ?
- is there anything like a code that you can dial from an foreign pin card that makes the local calls less expensive ?
- one last question when you are coming from Europe do you need an adapter for the plugs?

Thanx in advance for your precious advices,
Isabel

Re: Local phone calls

Calling cards in Argentina are quite cheap, where one is only paying a few centavos per minute. I do not know what that rate would be exactly with calls to and from Germany. That rate would be greater if the calls are made to or from a cell phone. I know that is not much help!

For the electric plug adapter question, reference the above websites. The 2-prong plug is the antique style, but they are very common. Argentines do not tear down buildings just beacuse they are old, like here in the USA, so there are a lot of old buildings still standing. Adapters to convert the newer 3-prong plug into a 2-prong plug are also easily available.

Re: Local phone calls

by Porteno

There are several major cell phone companies, Movistar http://www.movistar.com.ar/
Claro http://www.claro.com.ar/ and Personal http://www.personal.com.ar/

Frankly you can purchase an inexpensive cell phone with a pay as you go plan, you can take it to any post office and provide them with the phone number and they can add time to the phone quickly and easily in any amount you wish. You can purchase cards at kiosks too but many times they only have smaller units available. Any of the above carriers can provide you a SIM card but it sometimes takes a long wait at their main offices to get it done. You can purchase a cheap cell phone at shops all along Ave. Sante Fe for less than $40 USD and some time comes pre loaded on the phones, much quicker and simpler process that getting a SIM card.

International calling cards are very cheap to use in calling Europe. I purchased a $arg 20 and got about 1/2 hour talk time for international calls.

Hope this helps

suerte

Porteno definitely knows much more about obtaining cell phones than I do. The calling cards themselves are available in any kiosk, which are everywhere. And I believe that Porteno is correct, in that the kiosks only sell $5 and $10 peso phones cards.

Travel Tips for Buenos Aires

Tango Porteno

by K-nalla

Because tango is porteno and porteno only, you will find it all around Buenos Aires. Street performers, some of the, very very good, paintings, names of streets of famous tango songs, famous boliches (the cabarets of the 40s). Just take a stroll down Florida avenue and enjoy the music, make your way then to Corrientes 348 and enjoy the fileteado (type of painting), or caminito, or Pompeya or, just walk and smell that lunfardo coming right at you

Lots of kissing

by Dabs

Watch how the locals greet one another, there's a whole lot of kissing going on! Men greet women with a kiss on each cheek and men greet men with just a kiss on one cheek. I didn't get kissed during our 4 day visit, what was I doing wrong? ;-)

But I did get an air kiss, we were sitting in the Plaza del Mayo, assessing our options and resting our weary feet and I was watching the traffic go by. I locked eyes with a guy on a bus (he looked a lot like actor Cillian Murphy, my what a pretty face!) and he blew me a kiss! Warmed my middle aged heart, oh yes, it did!!!!

starbucks 1st shop in Argentina!

by solcitom87

if you love starbucks! guess what? there is one shop in Argentina!

it's located next to Alto Palermo Shopping, in Palermo Neighborhood ( Av. Coronel Diaz and Av. Santa Fe)

so for what i was told, it's kind of different from the ones in United states, because there are more tables and seats where to sit, due that Argentinians are used to have coffee in a Cafeteria ( sit in the cafeteria, ask for the coffee to the waitresst, drink the coffee, chat with a friend and finally pay for the coffee on the table, that's a little summary of the usual way of having coffee in Argentina)

So it's kind of strange to us just buying the coffee and leave, because we like talking and for us the best place is a cafeteria!

An Historic House in San Telmo

by Bwana_Brown about Galeria El Solar de French

On our final afternoon in Argentina, we made a return trip to the historic San Telmo area of Buenos Aires. After an enjoyable lunch in a classic pub, we did some exploring in the area around Plaza Dorrego.

One of the sights we came across was the very nice Galeria el Solar de French on Defensa Street. This Colonial-style building is famous for it's association with one of Argentina's patriots, Patricio Domingo Mariano French, who was born near here in 1774. Domingo French was one of the heroes of the reconquest of Buenos Aires from the British invasion army of 1806. Today, the Galeria French is an upscale and attractive assortment of boutiques, specializing in antique shops and photographic stores depicting life in Sal Telmo in the old days. We had a wander through it's interior walkways and enjoyed it's pleasant decor of plants and open lighting.
