    Manuel Tienda Leon Buses from Airport

    by kiwigal_1 Written Jul 19, 2006

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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- To/From Airport

    by MDC6 Written Apr 24, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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.

  • Cabs to/from Airport

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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.

    Go right to the Manuel Tienda Leon stand

    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.

    Shuttle From International Airport

    Manuel Tienda Leon Bus Transfer

    As soon as you have picked up your luggage and emerge into the ground transportation area, you will see a large booth for the Manuel Tienda Leon shuttle-bus service into Buenos Aires, located 35-km (20-miles) north of the airport.

    My Visa credit card did the trick for our A$23 (US$7.50) each one-way cost for a drive into the city on an air-conditioned Mercedes-Benz bus. The highway into Buenos Aires is a very modern divided highway with nice scenery (and the associated government financial corruption is one of the reasons for Argentina's financial crisis that has resulted in this being such an amazing place to visit from abroad!). Once the bus has weaved it's way into the city, it stops at a small terminal near the Rio de la Plata waterfront, where you transfer to vans for delivery to your final destination.

    The service was fast and efficient. When leaving BA, we took a private taxi from our hotel to avoid the hassles of bus connections, and it cost us a total of A$50 (US$17), not much more than the bus trip and a lot faster. The photo shows our inbound bus at the downtown transfer station.

    Air port Bus Transportation

    by cochinjew Written Mar 9, 2005

    Once you get out of the customs and immigration there are booths for you to buy transportation to the city.
    if alone, get manuel tienda leon buses which go every twenty minutes to downtown the cose is 22 pesos
    once there for an additional peso or two there would ferry you to the down town area hotels or hostels.
    if more than one person, i advise you to take a taxi or a remis.

    BUENOS AIRES : MANUEL TIENDA LEON

    by swesn Written Feb 24, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The cheapest way to come from the EZE airport to the centre of Buenos Aires is to take the MANUEL TIENDA LEON buses.

    To depart from the centre of Buenos Aires for the EZE airport, go to the MANUEL TIENDA LEON office at Avenida Santa Fe 790, near the Plaza San Martin.

    Leaves every half-hour in either direction.

    If you buy directly from the office, it should be slightly cheaper (12 Arg Pesos), compared to buying the ticket from, say, your hostel.

    From the airport or getting to the Airport... And I refer to EZE (international airport...) you want to take a Remis (private hire car) as well, but you can do better than just hailing one down. Le Coq seems to do a GREAT job of getting you to the airport in lots of time and is very resonable rate. I paid 22 pesos one way. I paid road tolls in addition. Give them a buzz.

  • Airport to town

    by DoctorK Written Jul 10, 2003

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The main international airport for Bs.As. is Ezeza, which is about a 30 minute ride from downtown. Make sure you get a taxi from inside the airport and do not get one outside at the curb. The fare is about 10 pesos (about 3 USD last I was there).

    The airport in downtown Bs.As. is for domestic flights only (as well as flights to Uruguay).

    Transporte de/para o aeroporto de Ezeiza

    by rogdias Written May 21, 2003

    O hotel me ofereceu um serviço de transporte (remis) em carro particular, mas de uma empresa especializada (acho que chama Sólo). Esperam você no aeroporto com aquelas plaquinhas com seu nome.
    Custa P$40. Me pareceu bom o serviço.
    Usei na volta também, chamado pelo hotel.
    Existe um serviço de ônibus especial (Manuel Leon) que te leva até o centro e daí em van até o hotel, por P$18. Só para quem vai sozinho. E se tiver pouca bagagem e espírito de aventura pode pegar o ônibus comum, mas não sei detalhes.
    No aeroporto existem outras opções, os passageiros que chegam são submergidos em ofertas...
    Inclusive remises mais baratas um pouquinho.
