      Tango Partner Needed

      Buenos Aires May 8, 2015 at 3:45 AM

      I'm a middle aged female traveling solo at the end of next month and into the first week of July. I'd like to take classes to meet other advanced beginners and I'd, also like to take private lessons to hone the subtleties of the dance. Can I get info ahead of time so I can make the arrangements/ plans? It seems it would help me select the right section of the city to book accommodations. I'd also like to hire a dance partner so I can dance at milongos. From my reading, it sounds like locals normally dance only with locals. Thank you for your help!

      Hire a tango instructor

      Buenos Aires May 9, 2015 at 9:48 AM

      Is it possible to hire an English speaking tango teacher for private lessons/ classes that I can schedule ahead of a visit to Buenos Aires? From my reading on the tango scene, it sounds like foreigners aren't taken into the fold as dance partners, so I'd have to take classes to get to know potential other foreigners to dance with if I want to dance at milangos. Is this an accurate assessment? I'm trying to weigh the value of traveling or not to BA for the purpose of really learning to dance tango.
      Thanks so much!

      Safety around the country

      Argentina May 2, 2015 at 7:25 AM

      Hi all,
      after 5 years I'm about to go back to the gorgeous Argentina. I understand the economic crisis led to an increased level of crimes especially in B. Aires so I guess I'll use "extra" common sense going around the city. I'm wondering how the situation is around the country, specifically in the north and during bus night trip. Five years ago I travel the whole Patagonia by bus and never had even a single moment I feelt unsafe... In B. Aires last time I stayed in Palermo and honestly I had no big issues going around the city by myself.
      Thanks for any advice!

      Hey Folks,

      I'm a German student travelling across Argentina . I will be in Buenos Aires this weekend and afterwards Im planning to head to ihe inner countryside. Is somebody going the same way who would like to join me on my trip. The destination I thought of is Bariloche but no needs for it. Perhaps we could rent a car something. I'm very open minded and uncomplicated and always up to a joke . Looking forward to your replies ;)

      Best side of the Andes

      Argentina Mar 1, 2015 at 12:12 PM

      I am planning a trip by car in October-November in Argentina and Chile, and I am thinking of arriving to Cueva de las Manos from Peninsula Valdez and then drive north to Atacama, passing by Barilloche et Mendoza on the Argenitina side and Puerto Montt and Santiago on the Chilean side.
      The doubt is whether it is nicer to drive between Cueva de las manis and Barilloche on the Argentinean side and then cross in to Chile, or to cross into Chile south and then enter Barilloche area and tour it.

      Then I have the same doubt, i.e. is there anything worth seeing between Barilloche and Mendoza, or is it better to go back to Chile and drive to Santiago and then go to Mendoza from there.

      I am quite experienced in driving in Argentina, having already driven more than 10.000km there in the north and extreme south, and given the cost of car drop-off, I am not interested in using planes or other means of transport, except maybe to cross the lakes (but is it possible to take the car across to Chile that way or is it only for pedestrians?)

    • Lost original birth certificate of my daughter

      Argentina Feb 3, 2015 at 11:16 AM

      Hello everyone,

      My girlfriend and her daughter live in Argentina. Now we have the following problem, she lost the original birth certificate. In a few months she wants to fly with her daughter to me (Netherlands) and she needs the original birth certificate. Now my question is as followed, is there any way she can still fly to the Netherlands?

      If she has a copy of the birth certificate is there any way to make it official? If so, what are our options?

      It would be a devastating blow to me and her if she is not able to travel to the Netherlands. So please someone help me. I have looked around the internet but my spanish isnt that great so I'm not sure what the rules are in Argentina for the matter. Please help us!

      Thank you all

    • Spanish schools in Buenos Aires

      Buenos Aires Jan 7, 2015 at 2:42 PM

      Hello everybody,

      I am planning to spend around 3 months in South America. Considering that I don't speak a word of Spanish, I want to spend most of the first 2 months in Buenos Aires, to immerse into the culture and especially learn the language. Therefore, I am currently looking for a language school and wanted to ask for opinions. Has anybody made any experience with Spanish schools in Buenos Aires? Through my research, I am especially interested in "Academia Buenos Aires" and "El Pasaje". Can anyone recommend or comment on these schools?

      Thanks,

      bus from Santiago to Mendoza

      hi

      I will leave Santiago de Chile with a bus from Andesmar to Mendoza in January 2015.
      From which Terminal do they leave?

      And on the website of Andesmar they talk about the Output Habilitation Rate for entering Argentina.
      Does this apply for me? I have Dutch nationality.

      I think it is very strange that I can buy a bus ticket on the website of Andesmar and that they don't give vital information. They don't respond on my email as well.

      Thanks
