Long distance bus travel - sleeping requirements

by mouthfromthesouth

Hi,

For the overnight journeys, do the bus companies provide sufficient bedding i.e. blankets/pillows etc or do we have to bring your own sleeping bag?
I suppose it depends on the seat class? I be travelling with Andesmar.
Thanks in advance for any advice given

I did a few overnight bus journeys in Argentina, although I used Pullman del Sur and Cruzeiro del Norte. All the buses are very comfortable. Best to bring your own pillow. I didn't find a sleeping bag necessary.

Many of the long distance buses have seats that rcline like first class airplance seats.

Re: Long distance bus travel - sleeping requirements

by jimwebster

My memory, as always, is fuzzy. The bus (micro) will either be "cama" (fully reclining seats - cama means bed) or "semi-cama" (semi reclining seats). And usually there is an emblem stating which on the front corners of the bus.

We were provided with a thin blanket and a pillow. And the attendents also closed all the curtains after nightfall. Not only did the seat recline, but also a foot rest popped out so that it was similiar to a recliner. The trip lasted all night, so the fare also included a decent supper, breakfast the next morning, plus various snacks and beverages in-between.

It is too bad that the United States doesn't have bus service like Argentina.

Travel Tips for Buenos Aires

HIS EARLY AGES ' CARLOS GARDEL WHEN HE WAS 14

by RafaelTheSecond

He was a lovely son, Doña Berta loved him dearly above all because he was brought up without father, and Carlito, or el Morocho was a good kid, with lots of friends, he knew the streets of Abasto.

When he became a real tango singer he had the chance to take his mother back to Toulouse where he met his relatives.

He is really someone to admire!

Mate

by DPando

Local drink by excellence is mater....argentinians, uruguayan and other use to drink it by its stimulants effects... thrice cafeine than not a simple coffee !! you will need a cup (called mate) a "straw" (called "bombixa") and the mate weed that is harvest in regions like corrientes or misiones ....then pour some water into the cup (not boiling water !! ) and you get it...the best advice is try to make local friends and they show u the way.. besides its a friendship drink....people gather together with this excuse ...take mate and talk back and forth !!

Tigre - stunningly beautiful !!

by Bigmac52

Like a lot of other people, I got out of B.A. for the day and took a trip "to the Delta".

Starting at Retiro ( a beautiful architectural experience in itself !!) and costing 2/3 pesos return !!! it only takes about 45 minutes to reach Tigre ( the human "entertainment" on the train at various points can also be fun ).

Out of the station and straight ahead to the Information booth on the River walkway to buy your ticket for the boat ( 20 pesos round trip on the boat that also acts as a bus - stopping at numerous jetties on the way to pick up / drop off passengers.

I can't remember the name of the place I got off but it was only a short walk along a pathway to the restaurant ( very Alpine / German in look ) - good meal and then on with the walk through the pathways / houses / streams etc seeing beatiful flowers /trees / birds / painted houses / houses on stlits / small houses / big houses / etc etc

Literally, a backwater to the Rio Grande but well worth the effort / time to see it.

Tigre itself isn't much of a town but the trip up the Delta is a real gem - not to be missed !!!

It's Interesting But...........

by Wade123 about Florida Pedestrian Mall

I cannot add much to what others have said about Av Florida. It's several blocks of stores that offer to sell lots of stuff. If you are lucky, you will see street performers which are sometimes interesting (keep an eye out for the inevitable hat being passed).
However, being a bit of a curmudgeon, I didn't appreciate the mass of shoppers/walkers that inundated the street (Saturday is much better), the beggers, those asking (tourists mostly) for contributions to some cause or other, being constantly stopped and asked to enter one store or the other (mostly leather shops), etc.
I found Av Lavalle to be just as good but with fewer annoyances. In December, there were several choral groups of school kids singing Christmas carols. Cute!
Ask a local where you should shop and Av Florida may well not be his answer. Too expensive. A leather jacket on Florida cost around 400-450 pesos. In Mendoza, a similar one was 250 pesos. Check out prices on Av Florida, finish your vacation (shopping as you go) and then do the smart thing. Anything a tourist might be interested in (clothes, leather goods, jewelry, etc) is available in Buenos Aires. However, the same things are being sold in numerous cities all over Argentina (including the airport). Do a lot of shopping at the beginning of your trip and a lot of buying towards the end. Less to carry and you will know what's a good price and what is not.

Sahara Continent

by hekate about Sahara Continent

It was recommended to me from my guide as a hot spot if one wants to have fun and taste the nighlife of Buenos Aires.

In Sahara you will find good food, delicious wines and will have the chance to listen to some local live music. At least I did so. At midnight a DJ takes over and plays various styles of music.

I had fun there. It seems like a typical place for gathering locals and tourist together. I ended up sitting on the same table with a Columbian guy, Equadorian girl and two Italians :)))

The advantage of Sahara and the Buenos Aires' nighlife that it doesn't end up in no time. Me andanother Bulgarian girl went home around 3.30 am and the discos around were packed with people.

And it is cheap. I didn't spend more than USD 20 that night. Didn't notice anything special when it comes to that.
