Any problems with transportation from airport New Year's Eve?

Hi

I'll be arriving at EZE midday on December 31. I am planning to take a taxi or remise to my hotel in San Telmo, but I received a response from a taxi pre-booking agency saying they aren't taking any reservations as they don't know how many drivers will be working that day. This makes me wonder if I will be able to find a taxi or remise when I arrive at the airport?

From another LP post I learned there is a bus Tienda León to Puerto Madero and then I could take a taxi from Tienda León's…

Chilean pesos in Argentina

Hola amigos.

Does anyone know if you get a decent rate for Chilean pesos in Argentina? I know about the blue dollar but am unsure id the cambios will do a similar favourable rate for their neighbours pesos.

We're heading over the border tomorrow but have left it a little late to get some more USD. We have some, but it would be great if someone could let me know if I'll be paying a lot more for my steak when I arrive!

Much appreciated!

Ushuaia- High Season and room availability

I am looking at rooms available in Ushuaia second week in January and it seems reasonable rooms are already becoming scarce. I was planing on working my way from Ushuaia to Santiago over 40+ days. Is room availability going to be a big problem in all the major tourist areas heading north, if I don't book far in advance during the high season? Does it improve at all in February?

Thank You!!!

Ezeiza to Aeroparque

I searched but the info' is old. Can anyone tell me the current situation for transferring from Ezeiza to Aeroparque. I would prefer to do it with a shuttle bus direct airport to airport rather than a cab.

I'll be transferring early morning about 8.00am so I should catch the rush hour nicely!

I'm assuming that I can get a safe reliable airport to airport shuttle. Does anyone know how much it'll cost me.
Also does it run 7 days a week.

Many thanks in advance.

Time at Iguazu Falls Argentina

Hi

Does anyone know how long it would take to walk the Upper Circuit, Lower Circuit, and Devil's Throat trails from start to finish (i.e. there and back)?

My flight arrives into Iguazu at 11:00am and leaves the next day at either 10:50am or 1:30pm. I assume I will get to the park around 12:30pm on the day of arrival. The park opens at 8:00am and closes at 6:00pm. I was wondering if it is possible to do all three trails on the first day and get out before the park closes or whether I would…

cheap outdoors gear in El Chalten

Hi guys,
My boyfriend and I just had all our camping gear stolen and we're trying to replace it all. I managed to find some cheap sleeping mats in the tax free Zone Franca in Punta Arenas, Chile, but the section of tents and sleeping bags here is very limited. Is there any second hand gear available in El Chalten? Or is our only option to order stuff online, have it sent to Santiago, and pay the taxes? Doe anyone know what the taxes are like in Chile for stuff purchased online?

Thanks guys,

Buenos Aires EZE airport arrival 1:30 AM Transportation\Sleep

Aloha,
I have a long flight eventually arriving in Buenos Aires at approximately 1:30 AM on Sunday January 4th. My goal in a "sleep-deprived trance\new country\dont speak the language" is to find easy transportation and place to stay to catch up on sleep. I assume I will catch a remise to one of the hostels in downtown, but didn't know if anybody had a better suggestion. Its the arrival time and day that I don't want to be stranded at the airport for 10 hours.

Thanks!

How many US$ can I take into Argentina from the UK?

Hi there,

Can anyone confirm the maximum amount of money (US dollars) I'm physically allowed to take into Argentina when flying?

I am travelling there for a holiday and keen to take US dollars.

Is there a restriction on how much I'm allowed to take without having to declare it.

From the information I've found online it seems to be 10,000 USD. Is this correct?

Thanks,

Hannah
