Hi, I will be in Buenos Aires in September and I am interested in taking tango lessons. Can anyone recommend classes or teachers?
I’m going to be in Buenos Aires for a week or two at the start of my trip, can anyone recommend good places to party?
With all the information about counterfeit pesos, has anyone used a counterfeit pen to test the currency?
We are vacationing in Buenos Aires in June for 12 days.
My head is spinning with all that I've read re taking dollars, ATM's, credit cards, Xoom and "blue" rate.
I'm hoping to hear from someone that has just returned or is in Argintina with so of wisdom.
I'd like to travel around in Argentina for 3 weeks in July, with my 2 children from 6years (twins).
I don't want to book a vacation by a traveloperator, because I'd like to arrange my time myself at the moment itself.
Can you suggest me how I can travel the best (and the safest)? Does I have to hire a car with driver (I don't want to ride myself)? Will that not be too expensive? Or is it better to take the bus and taxi to bring me from one place to another? Do I have to do some reservations before for the bus?
Also, I saw there are campings in Argentina. Safe? Good idea to do that or better not?
Hoping you can help me...
Hi! I am planning for a trip in either July or August. Are there any outdoor tango events and activities to do? Also, I am Canadian and used to harsh winters. How cold should I expect it to get and what should I bring to wear? Thanks for your responses !
Tell me your experience...
Hello, I am planning a trip to Buenos Aires. How much can I expect to pay for a typical Omega watch? Let's say a Planet Ocean. Is it less expensive to buy something like this in the USA?
We want to get from Calafate to Mendoza and would much rather fly as the 45 hour bus journey from BA was horrendous but the flights are all really expensive. We are looking at maybe flying somehwere closer then taking a bus or the other way round but are unsure of a route. Does anyone know a feasable flight/bus route or any cheap airlines we can use??
I am going to Buenos Aires in a cruise ship departing from Santos , Sao Paulo, the ship stops in Buenos Aires for 2 days. It is better to stay that night in the hotel or sleep in the Cruise ship, for example the distance from the Sao PAulo center to Santos is 1h 1/2 driving. Is In Buenos Aires the same?
I paid the reciprocity fee online, but wasn't near a printer to print it. Now I have forgotten my password and it won't send it to me. I have called all the numbers on the website and have emailed all the links, and no one has gotten back to me. Who should I contact to get the proper my password or my reciprocity form?
I will be in BA on Sunday April 7th, from 8am through 10pm while I am taking a "mileage run" to earn Airline miles... if anyone wants to show a fellow traveler around, I would love to have a driver or expert in the area! I am glad to pay for gas and buy lunch and dinner!
Also trying to determine what the cost of a transfer/taxi from the airport in Mendoza to San Metin city will cost
Can anyone recommend a few nice restaurants or tastings for a dinner near San Martin city but not in Mendoza City (I am staying in San Martin) and was told there aren't any good restaurants in San Martin but not sure i want to go into Mendoza City. It's just for one night.
Hello! We are planning to stay in Buenos Aires for 3 days in June this year (couple in young sixties). We are looking for a lodging with good connection to main site seeings, with reasonable pricing. Has anybody stayed at Tango Lodge, Palermo, Buenos Aires?

Hi! We are going to visit Argentina in two month time. Traveling around by car (motorhome) all way down to Ushuaia and then back on Ruta 40. Want to know if Ruta 40 is open all year round because I've heard that buses stop running at the end of April. If anybody has been driving this way I'd like to hear what is an average distance some can drive there in one day, let's say in 4-5 hours?

Hi! does anyone know anyone know if there is a bus from Puerto Iguazú to Salto or Montevideo in Uruguay?. I got told there is one but i cant find the information online.
If one had to choose on destination (for three day stay) out of the two (Bariloche or El Calafate) which would it be and why? We are confused and would like input from fellow travellers who have done both. We would not be skiing, but just sightseeing. THank you
hi there WE are considering a two night, three day stay in El Calafate. We would mainly like to see the Perito Moreno Glacier. I have come to understand that we can stay in El Calafate and do day trips from there. Is this the best way to see the region? * Is travel at the beginning of April a good time to visit this region? * what is the average temperature * What other sites or day trips are recommended to visit? * What routes should we take? * Is the cruise to Upsala, Onelli andSpegazzini glaciers recommended? * If we sail the northern arm of the ARgentino lake towards Upsala, do we still overnight in El calafate Thanking you in advance.

Can You please clear this subject up foe me. I land at AEP Buenos aires. I have 8 days in BA so will be buzzing around the city. Can I buy a Sube card at AES Airport on arrival, if so where in the airport ? How much can/should I load on it, and is it easy to buy and use ? I like this system, Hong Kong have an octopus card where by you can travel on any form of transport and even use it in places like McDonalds, So very convenient and at the end of your trip you can get back any balance left on it,
My husband and I have rented an apartment for a month in the San Telmo area of Buenos Aires, on the corner of Defensa and Chile. Now we've started to hear that San Telmo isn't safe at night, and we're having second thoughts. Our potential landlady says it's the main street of the area, is quite safe, and has an active night life. We have no way of judging what's true. Does anybody have experience with that area, and specifically, with that part of it?
Hi will pesos be accepted on the Brazilian side? Please reply urgently. Thanks to all.
Where can I buy Cuban cigars from a reputable retailer in central BA? Thanks guys
Hi will be flying into Buenos Aires and will be in Argentina for 7 days. What must definately be visited in this hsort time? Also we are interested in either going to Iguazu Fall for 3 days or down to El Calafate and the glaciers. Which would you recommend and why? I see that the flights to both areas are very expensive of over350 return, however the bus rides are 20 hours which cuts our time short. DO you know of any specials available or how we could fit these in to our itinerary. Thanking you in advance
Hi, I am flying into EZE on 25th of December. I see that from 28th, only online payments will be accepted, but it does not say anything about if you can pay before that online or not. Does anyone know? Thanks!
Hi VT'ers, would really appreciate your thoughts on what area of Buenos Aires you all would recommend my wife and I look for a apartment in. We are going to rent a apartment for 10 days and cant decide what part of town we want to base out of. A friend of ours mentioned Palermo but I notice there are a few area's even around Palermo to consider. We are going to be there March 5th through the 15th (if that would make any difference). We like to stay in places that have easy access to transportation (preferably the subway), has shopping markets available (we like to cook our own meals occasionally) and has a vibrant street life but not to noisy. I know, I know, this sounds so picky. Actually we're pretty easy but these would be our preferences if it's all available in a place to stay. Thanks everyone that have even made it this far in my post. And thanks to all that respond. Have a great holiday season everyone!
Hi all, First of all I wanted to ask the typical question of what the best highlights for me and my wife to visit in about 7 days. We are both very early 30s. Is there anything new that we should not miss for example? What about history? We don't really want to go to museums but we like architecture and beautiful places and would like to see some history. Even someone mentioned the old cemetery - is this something to see really or just boring? Anyway second point and this is the BIG point is we both do not eat beef. Now I know the big thing in Argentina is steak so I wanted to know will there be plenty of other options like pork and chicken and lamb in barbecue or grill style for us??? Does anyone know any good places where we could get this? We are staying in between Palermo and Recoleta and will be there just after new year. Thanks for all your help guys.
