Argentina Transportation

  • To/From Airport - A/Desde Aeropuerto

    Buenos Aires Transportation

    I found very few information on how to get to Ezeiza airport and how to get back to the city center (Capital Federal). Going there by taxi would be the fastest and the most expensive option. However, if you are not a budget traveler and are ok with paying approximately 300 pesos or more, I still recommend you to book a taxi in advance and agree on...

  • International Airport - EZE

    Buenos Aires Transportation

    A lot of people ask the same question, how do I get from the airport to the city? TAXI, or REMIS is the best option. The airport is VERY far away from the city, it will take you over 30 minutes to get there by taxi. Public transportation will take you hours, not a good idea when you have bags with you... You can pre-order online (right now, $340...

  • Subway = Subte

    Buenos Aires Transportation

    En Buenos Aires tenemos seis lineas de subte y el premetro. El pasaje puede abonarse en dinero en efectivo o con la tarjeta SUBE, en dinero es mas caro. Es muy útil y rápido, siempre que se eviten las horas pico (de 8 a 10 y de 17 a 20 hs). Hay que estar muy atento en los andenes, ya que es zona de raterismo. In Buenos Aires we have six lines of...

    Buses are a good way of transportation. You can buy a "guia T" at any news paper's kiosco. It has the detail of the traject of every bus of the capital city.

  • National Airport - Jorge Newbery

    Buenos Aires Transportation

    Please see my previous EZE airport tip for more information. In general, BA has two airports. Jorge Newbery Aeroparque is the smaller domestic airport, and it's within the city of Buenos Aires. Most domestic flights within the country depart from here. Newbery is a simple airport to deal with, and if you're arriving or departing at odd hours, you...

  • Long Distance Buses

    Buenos Aires Transportation

    You can go to Buenos Aires from the whole country or from neighbour countries by bus; the arrival point is Terminal Retiro, a really huge bus station. Distances usually are long, so you will arrive there very tired! Pueden ir a Buenos Aires desde todo el país o desde países vecinos en bus; el punto de llegada es la Terminal Retiro, una estación...

  • Long Distance Bus

    Most of the time when you think of the bus you think of the Greyhound, which is not especially roomy nor particularly comfortable. Argentina, because of the lack of rail service, depends more than anything on long distance bus service, at least for those who cannot afford to fly. Instead of going back to Buenos Aires from Cordoba I chose to take...

  • Air Service

    Because of the very large distances involved, flying is often the only realistic option due to the time involved in taking the bus.Aeroparque Jorge Newberry (AEP) is located in the Palermo neighborhood, not far from downtown Buenos Aires, so it isn't a very expensive cab ride. At the time of my last visit it was the center of domestic air travel in...

  • Travel Agent in Argentina- Monforte

    Most of the time you can find a pretty good fare getting to Argentina, however because of a confusing two-tiered pricing system on domestic air, you can end up paying substantially more if you book independently.

  • Carry On Luggage on domestic flights

    The carry on limit for domestic flights is 5 kg. This is strictly enforced. Avoid the embarrassment of being found overweight and having to stuff a bunch of your things into your checked luggage in front of everyone else. Before getting in line you are usually able to weigh your bags.

  • Peninsula Valdes

    Bus travel in Argentina is safe and comfortable, depending on the category of the bus. However, distances are huge and going to Puerto Madryn from Buenos Aires would take your daughter between 18-20 hours.

    To wrap up my experience, I checked the local car rentals and they were ll quite costly. In the end I settled for AVIS, who offered the possibility to have the papers for Chile with a good rate (600 euro vs 900 for 11 days). However, the rate, was not with unlimited mileage so I had to pay 100 euros extra for this (but I had clocked almost 4000...

  • Taxis are cheap.

    There are literally dozens of taxis available in the city. We tried to take taxis from our hotel. These people are usually known to the hotel as safe and reliable. We did on occasion take a taxi from the street corner, but didn't make a habit of it. The drivers are very fast and don't pay a lot of attention to lines on the road. They seem to drive...

    Distances in Argentina are huge and, unless you have plenty of time, getting around in any other than flying is neither feasible or practical. If you're planning to see the great attractions of the country and you have only two or three weeks at your disposal, you really don't want to be spending hours, let alone days, on a bus - and don't even...

    The site below gives you information on intercity bus services including those to and from Bariloche. From the coast most take at least 12 hours (which sounds like hell to me) but they often go overnight so if you can sleep on buses it makes good use of what time you have. There is a much more comfortable option which is to get to a bus to Viedma...

  • To far to walk

    Where we were staying was not in town so we soon realized that we needed some wheels to get us around. The owner of our cottage took us to Localiza to get a car. It was around $50 per day. Driving around Ushuaia wasn't much of a problem. Figuring out which way to go downtown wasn't easy sometimes.We dropped the car off at the airport when we left.

    It only takes an hour to cross on the "Buquebus" from Buenos Aires to Colonia in Uruguay, or three hours to reach the capital of Uruguay - Montevideo. Colonia is very pretty and worth a day trip from Buenos Aires - even if it's just for a break from the madness of city life!
