Cruise connection cost

by rjeubanks

We are looking at a cruise that starts in Buenos Aires. We will have to get a hotel for a couple of days before the cruise and then get transportation to the cruise ship, Celebrity cruise line. The agent we talked to said that it would cost over 600 USD for each of 2 adults and 1 child to get from the airport to the hotel then to the cruise ship. This seems very high. Does anyone have an idea about what the cost should be? Thank you very much. We want to go but 600 each for transportation is a real deal killer. Jerry, Susan & Karen

Hi - We did the same thing a few years ago and it was no where near $600 a person!! Unfortunately I don't remember the cost but I just checked on the Ports of Call/South America forum at and found this:

"Airport to city - I'd guess around 20-25 minutes, and perhaps around $30-45 pesos (~$15USD). From the city to the port - if you are downtown (most likely the vicinity), I'd guess the port is around a 10-15 minute taxi ride, and perhaps 15-25 pesos (~$8USD). This is all based on an exchange rate of ~3pesos per USD, which is what it was in 1/08."

So looks like the total should be under $30 - big difference from $1,800!!

Have a great cruise!

The current taxi fare from EZE, the international airport into the city is 90 pesos. Depending on the hotel, you could pay anywhere from about $100 USD a night for a triple to over $600 USD a night. As for hotels I would recommend the Melia Recoleta, Loi Suites Recoleta, or if you need something less expensive the Bel Air,or Art Hotel. If you have a lot of luggage then you may wish to have the hotel arrange a remise (private care hire) to pick you up and take you to the cruise port. Price would vary but should not be more than 50 pesos.

You also have the Hilton, two Sheratons, an Intercontinental, Marriott and a very expensive Hyatt, Sofitel and Four Seasons if you desire.

Our cruise with NCL starts from Buenos Aires. We're flying in a couple of days early and we've reserved a hotel for two nights. Reserved hotel costs less than 100USD/night. At airport, withdraw money at ATM at the Banco de la Nacion. Blue & white taxi booth located in middle of lobbby, pay the fee for in-town destination. Total taxi cost should be about 60-90 pesos + tips to porter and driver. [Some one advise me if research info is incorrect.]

Re: Cruise connection cost

The current taxi fare is around 90 pesos, as for tipping a few pesos to the porter if he actually assists you with the bags, and for the taxi driver normally no tip is expected other than some small change. If he is outstanding, that assisting with your bags upon arrival etc then maybe 5 pesos would be enough. There are ATM's in the arrivals hall and the Banco La Nacion in the rear of the arrivals hall which might be better to use in order to ask for smaller bills. The ATM's normally only spit out 100, 50, 20 and 10 peso notes. If you key in 300 you will normally get 3 100 peso notes which are nearly impossible to use for purchases under 50 pesos. So ask at the bank for a couple of hundred in 2,5, 10 and 20 peso notes and pay for taxi at the kiosk with a 100 peso note.

As for a hotel under 100 US a night try this one it is in a very good location, not fancy but respectable and should be fine for two days.

Travel Tips for Buenos Aires

El Obelisco

by la_beba

The city's most traditional monument. A meeting point for every visitor. It lifts 67,50 meters in the intersection of Corrientes Ave. and 9 de Julio Ave. There's a 206 steps stairs to climb up to the roof.
The 9 of July Avenue got that name from the date of Argentina's Independence Day. It's the widest avenue in the world and crosses through all the city.

Asados part 2

by Sonador3

Here is another type of Asado. Called "Carne con Cuero", the whole cow is split in half and layed out on sort of a grill, and secured with wires. Then it's leaned against the fire and, again, cooked very slowly.

This photo was taken in Pinamar in January of 2003, and the "chef' here started preparing the cow at about 11 in the morning. It was about 10pm at the time of this photo, and the meat was just about done. Incredibly tasty!!

Sorry for the blurry photo, but there was plenty of smoke and ashes flying around!

Polo Argentina

by jackinthebox

On arrival in Argentina, I wanted to experience Argentine Polo. I found by chance an English Sports and Travel agency based In Buenos Aires called Playargentina which offered incredible prices not only for Polo but for other equestrian activities. I strongly recommend the Estancia rides and the Polo. Hooked now and can not wait to return to Argentina to ride more. If can rent or borrow all from the schools
