Accommodation Options in Buenos Aires for 3-4 Week Stay

by Shard1978

I have heard that you can rent apartments in BA for cheap ($600 for an entire month) but am not sure if my schedule will allow for me to spend an entire month there. Therefore I am wondering what other accommodation options would be my best bet if I were to spend 2-3 weeks there. Can I find similar deals for that length of a stay? Obviously I don't want to pay for a hotel!

Also, if I do decide to stay for a month, any tips on how to arrange securing an apartment would be useful as well.

Also, I will be reading up on BA in general on this site, but if any one has any recommendations on the must-do things there, as well as some excellent day-trips, winery tours, etc., it would be most appreciated!

Thanks,
Scott

Have a look at these agenices for apartments in BA for your stay. They are www.bytargentina.com, www.argentinahomes.com. They are both reputable companies and the pricing is included on the websites. Also, you can find apartments on Craigslist, but in most cases with Craigs you are dealing directly with the owner.
Have a look at www.welcomeargentina.com for a general overviews. At your local bookstore pick up a copy of TimeOut buenos Aires. this is an excellent overview guide for the city,neighborhoods,bars,restaurants,daytrips,etc.
Wineries are located in other areas of Argentina(Mendoza,Northwest ARg,Patagonia). However, there are many wine tasting bars in the city.
:etme know if you have other questions. Iam in BA at this time.

Travel Tips for Buenos Aires

Neighborhoods

by acemj

Buenos Aires is the 9th largest city in the world so there's no doubt it's huge and trying to see it all is next to impossible. However, it is also a city of multiple individual neighborhoods, each with its own distinct flavor and character. Some of the most popular and interesting to visitors are La Boca, San Telmo, La Recoleta, Plaza San Martin, Puerto Madera, Plaza de Mayo and Palermo. You'll need at least a week to really explore these areas and since I only had a few days, I limited my exploration to just a few.

Locutorios

by ptitetoile

If you look to a possibility to phone or to send an e-mail....NO PROBLEM! Almost everywhere, in every neighborhoods, you will find little shops called "Locutorio" that offers these services for a very cheap price!

Internet : from 1 pesos to 2 pesos per hour

October - Umbrella & Jackets a Must

by XKuger

Nothing special If you are travelling in October. I must say that you must pack an umbrella and a jacket or sweater.

Some days it poured rain as through the heavens opened up. Any kind of unbrela would not have helped. Thats just a day you are better of sitting home with hot choclate (even thought its your vacation) Most stuff can be bought. If you have special medication do take it with you. Bringing any kind of Camera is safe. I carried around a professional Nikon camera all over and shot and never felt unsafe.

Its very, very safe. Just don't be a stupid tourist when not shooting throw the camera in the bag. If you plan on going camping. Carry some basic medical kit like cough/cold medication. I had one hell of a experience explaining my symptoms to the pharmacist who knew only spanish.
