No transport available in Argentina on Monday at all: flights, buses, taxis, trains all shut down at 12.01 am until midnight Monday. Banks will aslo be shut down, so expect that the ATMs this weekend to be non-functional or out of money until Tuesday. In Buenos Aires, the streets into and around the city will be cut by union barricades. Expect the overnight buses from Sunday afternoon on not to be operating. Chaos, so do not plan anything that does not involve walking or bicycling. https://www.l

Hi! I have flights planned to arrive into Buenos Aires on Friday January 11 (early AM), and depart on January 21 (late at night). I know I will not be able to see everything in such a huge country, but am having trouble with setting up an itinerary. I know I will be spending a few days in Buenos Aires. Iguazu is probably #2 on my list. Some other itinerary items I am considering are Mendoza, Salta, Patagonia, or a day or two in Uruguay. I am trying to do this on a budget, but will splurge…

Hello, I would greatly use some advice. We are having layover in Buenos Aires - landing around 20.30 and departing at 12.30. Is it worth it to try to get to the city center as I've read it can take you up to 3 hours to get there but some say by a cab it can be 0,5 hour. What time do you think we should be leaving towards airport from the city center int he morning (weekday)? What is your experience/recommendation? Would you go and take a cab? How much would it be? Thanks a lot for any info!

Hi there,
Spamming a bit, asked about bus maps yesterday.

Planning a trip in Dec/Jan, and want to get a loose itinerary mapped out as want to get some accom booked, as it seems the good places get booked up in advance around this time.

We arrive in BA at 8am on Sat 22nd Dec, and have 3 weeks from this point. Currently I’m thinking the following

Sat 22nd – fly BA to Ushuaia
Stay Ushuaia for 3 days, see penguins, check out TdF.
26nd Dec – Fly Ush to El Calafate
Check out the glacier on the 27th
28th…

Hi travellers!

My husband and I are heading to northern Argentina in September as part of a journey trough Chile, Bolivia and Argentina. We'll be coming from San Pedro de Atacama and want to spend 8days in Argentina, exploring Salta, Tilcara, Purmamarca, Cachi, Cafayate etc. (maybe even down to La Rioja to explore Talampaya en Ischigualasto National Park). Our international flights arrives and departs from Santiago.

Our question is, what is the most practical option?:
1. Do we take the bus…

Hi,
In the early stages of planning a 3 week trip in Argentina over Dec & Jan for our honeymoon. We arrive Sat 22nd Dec, and leave Sat 13th Jan 2019.

Rough plan is to spend 2wks or so in Patagonia and a week up north, but not got into much more detail than that currently, could well end up being 3wks in Patagonia.

Right now I’m looking at transport options to work out how easy it is to move between various places, buses seem to be the best way but I could really do with a map of the network(s)…

Hi travellers!

I'm planning a trip to Argentina, but this time I'll be in a rush: I want to spend just one night in Jujuy/Tilcara only to do a trekking with llamas (caravana de llamas. )

1) How can I make the most out of my time?

  • Overnight: do you suggest a place to sleep? (I'll be on honeymoon!)

  • Flight: I can still decide if take a plane from Iguazù or Buenos Aires; It seems that airport Gdor. Horacio Guzmán is close to Tilcara, but there isn't any transport. Are taxi…

SIM cards

Hi there, I have read the item about simcards, but would like to know where I can buy simcards (data, roaming, internet) at EZE airport upon arrival. I know I must register with my passport. I plan to travel all over Argentina and possibly Uruguay. How much should I pay?

Is it a (lot cheaper) to buy such a simcard in micro center Buenos Aires? If so, where can I buy it?
