if you are with more than 3 people it's cheaper to take a taxi
Passing through immigration and customs was a breeze, my first time and decided to take the bus to recoletta rather than go through the annoyance of having to negotiate with taxi drivers. (i was told they ask for 120+ peso and drop to 70-90 peso). The desk of Manuel Tienda Leon was just on the left. English speaking, 40 peso or 45 with connection to your residence. Buses left on time and every 30 min. Arrived at recoletta abouit 30 min later and then it took less than 10 min before being one my way to my hotel via private care share with 2 other passenger. On the way to the air port remember to call and book your pick up 24 hours before, or like me catch a taxi to their bus station (about 12 peso9 located behind the Sheraton. Make sure the driver knows this and keep an I open otherwise he might try to drop you off at the main bus station nearby and cost you and extra few pesos and about 5 minutes. Buses leave ever 30 min on the hour. Friendly Service Guy with tattoos.
Theres no train there, the best way to get to the other airport is by taxi or transfers. Its simple to get one inside the airport very next to the door outside customs. Maybe they are a little more expensive but it worth it, dont take a taxi from the street there. And if you do, try to get the ones that has telephone numbers on their doors. Inside the airport i guess you can pay with everything, outside i recommend to pay in pesos.
When you walk outside the airport the taxi touts will descend on you all offering rides to BsAs. The prices are inflated. My recommendation is that as soon as you get outside the airport, walk to the right about 20 meters and catch a taxi who has just dropped off passengers at the airport. I paid 60 ARS for a ride from EZE to Palermo Botanico. Although I might have gotten it for less, it was still 25 pesos cheaper than the taxi tout prices.
The best way to go from Ezeiza Intl. Airport to Buenos Aires downtown and also to return to the airport is Manuel Tienda Leon.
You can rent a remis (kind of executive service) for ARS 105,00 or you can take a bus. The time schedule for buses is in the website.
Do not take taxis outside the airport. We didn't have any trouble with taxis, but the locals says that they can give you fake money as change.
You'll find the Tienda Leon counter outside the arrival gate, turn to your left.
This is the bus service to and from the airport. Its in the neighborhood of 30 pesos per person one way. They run the main bus into town to their terminal and then use minibus shuttles to get the passengers to their final destinations. So it is an airport to door service, just with a pitstop at the main terminal in town.
Due to the pricing I would say if you are traveling with anyone else, this is more expensive than just getting a taxi.
The cheapest and safest way to get to and from the airport was using the Manuel Tienda Leon bus service. When you have gone through customs at the airport you will come to a round hall with a lot of taxi, bus and accommodation booths. Look for the one with the big Lion on it and book a bus to Plaza San Martin for $25 Argentinian pesos. For $2 pesos more you can get a transfer ticket that will take you to your hotel from the Plaza.
Manuel Tienda Leon is a private bus company that goes from its office in Bs As to Ezeiza. The ticket office is right outside the airport, just after you exit the international terminal. When I used this service, tickets cost about $15-$17 (U$S 5-6). They will leave you at their office on Av Santa Fe, near Plaza San Martin.
To get to Buenos Aires from the international airport, Ezeiza, you can take a cab. As soon as you step out of the terminal there will be about 20 drivers trying to persuade you to hire them. If money is no object, this is not a bad way to go. They will help you with your luggage and drop you off at your destination. When I left, it cost about $35 (about U$S 12) including tolls. Make sure when the drivers quote you a price, they're including the tolls (peaje) in that price. PLEASE NOTE THAT PRICES MAY HAVE CHANGED SINCE THEN. THIS INFORMATION IS BASED ON MY LAST TRIP IN 2003.
If it's your first time in Argentina, you might be a little dazed like I was after flying all night in an uncomfortable plane! Also I was by myself. So if you just want a sure, safe thing when you arrive at the airport, walk right over to the Manuel Tienda Leon car stand. It was $58 pesos into town ($19 U.S.) which is about a 30-minute ride. It's a flat rate no reservations required.The driver was very courteous and friendly, air conditioned car and he made sure I got into my hotel before pulling away.
