Booking internal flights

by lindaveroni

Friends from the UK want to fly to Iguazu for a few days in early October. I've heard talk in the past on these pages that it's best for someone with a DNI to book the tickets as the price is lower. Can anyone confirm if this is still the case and, if so, where the best place to book is? Many thanks.

Re: Booking internal flights

by TexasDave

Argentine airlines have a two-tiered system; lower prices for Argentinians, and higher prices for foreigners. Although someone may book the cheaper flight for you when you go to check in and you present a foreign passport you may be in for an on the spot price increase and/or other difficulties. Then again you might just get away with it.
In my opinion it's better to just bite the bullet and pay the corresponding fare from the beginning.

Travel Tips for Buenos Aires

Recoleta

by mannymiami

La Recoleta is one of the fanciest neighborhood in Buenos Aires. With its majestic apartment buildings and restaraunts,boutiques,embassies, its a definite must see. Not that far from here you can also visit the cemetary where Evita Peron was burried, considred one of the most beautiful cemeteries in the World.

Feed the 'Koi'

by Bwana_Brown

The beautiful Japanese Gardens in the park-like Palermo district have large fish ponds integrated with the displays of plants from all over the world. In keeping with a Japanese custom, these ponds are inhabited by large 'Koi' fish, which can grow to a length of 2-3 feet and live for 35 years or longer.

Koi were developed by the Japanese over 200 years ago, specially for their ornamental ponds. With their variety of orange and white mottled skin colours, Koi look like large Goldfish, but in-fact are descended from bottom-feeding Carp. These fish will eat just about anything, and when they spot a likely handhout, they swarm the surface of the water with their large mouths opening and closing as they wait to grab a morsel.

It is good fun to watch their antics as the people enjoying the park take the time to throw some crumbs to the fish!

The best Polo in the world

by luzmaria

Argentinians have been the World Champions in Polo since 1949 till today.

Polo has been played in Argentina since 1870.
Soon it became more popular than the all native game of "Pato", that gauchos used to play since 1610, which is rather similar.

Of the more than 3000 Argentine polo players there are, some of them are internacionally well known belonging to the most traditional families from the countryside, such as Bautista, Horacio, Alberto y Eduardo Heguy, Juan Carlos Harriot, Alfredo Harriot, Adolfo Cambiasso, Enrique Alberdi, Juan A. Traill, Mariano Aguerre, Javier Novillo Astrada .

The main teams are:

Coronel Suarez
Indios Chapaleufu (ganador del ultimo Campeonato)
Ellerstina
El Paraiso
La Caniada
Hurlingham
El Trebol
La Espadania
Venado Tuerto
North Santa Fe.


In Buenos Aires city, at the Campo Argentino de Polo, (Av. del Libertador y Dorrego), the world famous championship: Campeonato Argentino Abierto de Polo is played. The championship begins in August, generally in other fields of the Northern area of the Gran Buenos Aires, finishing by December in Palermo.

The US and Great Britain import Argentine polo horses, which have great speed, quality and stamina.

Leather, Leather, Leather

by Assenczo about Calle Florida (Florida street)

The appearance is no special whatsoever - all the shops on Florida are the same. This particular one had an usher or a tout who would invite you more or less aggressively to join the bonanza. I had a need and allowed him to "dominate" me. Quickly I discovered that this was the leather item that I was in need of (after visiting several other shops) and proceeded to buy it. Since it had a little deficiency, let's call it that way, the seller offered to make a brand new one in the "fabrica". This came as a no surprise because all of the Florida leather shops seem to be manufacturing plants too. Do not expect elaborate receipts – there are none! Leather, but it is funny because the locals rarely wear it. Apparently the whole industry is geared towards the foreign visitor. For the jacket that you see I had to part with 200 of my US dollars. USD 200 or so - competition is tight but I have this suspicion of mine that tells me that the "cut-throat" competitors meet on Mondays to make sure that there are no surprises.

Electronic music at a 1900's house

by IIGUANA about Milion

When you mix an early 20th century house with electronic music, then you've got Million. This place is THE place to go before going dancing. Get a couple of drinks, grab something to eat, chat with your friends, or simply take a look at the impressive house where it's built, the place is simply great. A "must-be" if you're in Buenos Aires.
One thing: there is no sign outside the building, so you just have to get there by the address. No dress code, but don't appear with shorts or sandals. Argentinian people do dress quite well, so don't be the clown of the party.
