We're headed to BA in November with 4 nights in BA and 3 in MDP. Any advice, suggestions or tips would be appreciated as it is our first trip there. We're African-American, in our forties and relatively healthy/active. We are not novice travelers and fairly adventurous; we've traveled throughout Europe in the past but wanted to try someplace different. Our hotels are Park Silver Obelisco(BA) and Riviera (MDP). I particularly need guidance on beaches in MDP. I want to relax under an umbrella with easy access to bars and music, with some time in the water. Are there private or restricted beaches that would offer these things without being packed in like sardines? How much should I expect to pay for such?

voy a un espectáculo en el Estadio de la Plata el domingo y creo que voy a volver a Buenos Aires sólo 23 o 0h. ¿Hay algún transporte en este momento?
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
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?
I am going to have surgeries by Dr. Guerrisi. Need to look for an apartment to rent for about 2 weeks near Quintana Planta Baja. Could be a short distance away but need to watch my funds and avoid excessive pay to taxis to see my doctor for checkups after the surgeries. I was in a terrible acident almost 4 years ago and although I cannot afford this trip, less the surgery, I am ready to make me HAPPY. The accident left me disabled; therefore I am looking for an apartment without many stairs. Also, do we need Visas if we're leaving the U.S. to get to Buenos Aires. I am very concerned for our safety and pray this area is not such a bad location. Once I recover a bit, I would like to see a little of this location. But, if anyone knows of apartments for rent for about 2 weeks or a little more; please let me know. Thanks to all.Take care
I'm planning a trip to Argentina. I will be traveling by myself. However, I have heard about saftey issues in Buenos Aires. I know of two people who have been robbed by taxi drivers.

Does anyone knows any place to take few prived lessones in ba?
Hola Group -
I will be visiting Buenos Aires in November and my friends and I are considering buying tickets to a show at the Estadio Unico de la Plata on Sunday night. Looks like buses run until about 11pm even on Sundays. Anyone have any input about the ease and safety of riding a bus back to Buenos Aires (Retiro) on a Sunday night after a big show?

I am planning on going to Iguazu Falls and in doing so, I need to change airports in Buenos Aires. I will be landing at Ezeiza (EZE) and flying out of Jorge Newberry (AEP). I wonder how long it takes to go between airports and what is the best mode of transportation to do so.
What is the easiest way to get from Ezeisa International airport to La Plata?
My wife has to travel to BA for work. I'm considering tagging along and taking our little one with us. I know a few people who've been to BA and they loved it, but they're single, tango and salsa dancing people who went and partied the night away. They said BA was awesome and the people great, etc. but they barely saw the place in the daytime. So... not very helpful when I have to plan for a day with a toddler :)
So, a bunch of questions here:
1) Is it safe enough to bring my toddler? I'm not super risk averse myself but I haven't traveled much since we've had the kid. If I whip out the iPad to calm my kid down with some cartoons, are we going to get robbed?
2) The pics I've seen online show BA as a really bustling city. Are the streets really as jammed packed all day long as Tokyo?
3) Are there plenty of parks/playgrounds/places to walk around with my kid? I don't need/want disneyland, just somewhere to burn off some steam and get some exercise. Preferably without having to dodge traffic/worry that my kid will get run over if I don't have her on a leash/etc.
Any tips would be appreciated. This would be our 3rd trip with the little one and the first two were very short trips within the USA (we're Canadian, but the trips were short and to major cities). Thanks!
Could you please let me know how we can get to Santa Suzanna Estancia from Buenos Aires? Is there a bus? How much would it be approx.?
I will be visiting Rosario and Sante Fe with my son's rugby tour this July. Can anyone recommend golf courses where I might be able to play and rent clubs? Also, I would really appreciate some good restaurant suggestions for these two cities. Thanks.
We will be in Buenos Aires for one month this November, 2010. We want to stay in an hotel the first week and then an apartment for the rest of the trip.
We think it might be best to look for an apartment when we arrive, however, we are worried that as Novemeber is high season, there might not be a good selection of apartments in the Recoleta and Palmero neighborhoods.
Can anyone address the availablity of apartments in November in the Recoleta and Palmero neighborhoods when not booking ahead? If we just show up, and look, will there be a good selection of apartments available or will everything be picked over?
Although the hotels look great, we want to stay for at least three weeks and we would like an apartment in the Recoleta. Any suggestions on how to find one? Thank you!
are there more than one bus terminal in Mar del Plata from Buenos Aires, and if so, at which one should I disembark in order to be closest to the city center?
Retirement in Argentina, any tips?
Hoping someone can offer some guidance or even the right websites to visit for the following..
Flying in and out of BA from Australia - and we want to head to Bolivia then across to Brazil and make our way back down the coast of Brazil and down south of Argentina before flying back out of BA - just wondering what the best option is to travel between BA and La Paz ( i see flights can be quite expensive - is there a train - obviously with stopovers on the way) also same from Bolivia across to Recife?
Look forward to recieving a response.
Traveling to Mar Del plata with my sister and we're both 30s single and want to have some fun. We were wondering if we should be in Mar del plata or Mendoza for New Years... any suggestions? Thanks!
It is my understanding that there are 2 trains to Tigre from BA.: one the Tren de la Costa and the other a 'regular' train. I certainly want to tale Tren de la Costa one way but am unsure as to doing round trip. Are there any advantages doing RT? doing one one way and the other return?
Also is it necessary to take an excursion tour boat to really see the area, or can it be done by just using their 'water taxis' between points of interests and restaurants.
I'll be in Buenos Aires in a couple of weeks. I'd like to check out the nightlife but would like to go someplace where Americans over 40 wouldn't feel out of place. Any recommendations would be appreciated
Can anyone recommend me some good salsa places in Buenos Aires for dancing salsa! I am not looking for salsa classes, but bars or discos where I could hang out and dance salsa (with live music probably)!
My girlfriend and I will be visiting Buenos Aires from California during the Boca v. River game (19th of April, 2009)and were hoping to see the match. There is a place that does tours (tangol.com) where they pick you up and take you to the game with a bilingual guide. They are asking400 US. I know this is a huge match, but does that price sound right to you? Seems very high... What other options do we have? Can we purchase tickets the day of the match? Do we have to worry about counterfeit tickets? Does anyone live in BsAs? Have you been to any games there? Any tips you could give us would be greatly appreciated.
I am looking for airline that fly to Buenos Aires from London/Australia/or any country in asia pacific? The current flight from my country (malaysia) is way too expensive for a budget traveller like me.
Can anyone please recommned?
Has anyone stayed at this hotel? We will be there 25-29Feb09...or other suggestions are welcome.
On Sat 14th Feb Glasgow Rangers will play Glasgow Celtic at 1230 GMT.(roughly 0930 in BsAs I think?)
While I realise nobody in BsAs will give a monkeys , trust me it is our version of Boca v River. Does anyone know where I could watch this game or if there are Supporters Clubs of either team in BsAs which might be showing the game on some obscure satellite channel.
Many thanks for any replies
My sister and I will be going to Buenos Aires end of October/ begining of November.
We've both never been before and don't know where to stay. We are looking into the Hilton in Puerto Madero because it seems very nice and affordable. But I have no idea about the location.
We are 24 and 27 and not really into the club scene, but we would like to try nice restaurants and cafes, and do sight-seeing and shopping during the day.
We are willing to pay for cab rides, throughout the city, but don't know how expensive they are.
Necesito informacion sobre turismo, hoteles, restaurants, carreteras, clima y atracciones en la ciudad de ***, Buenos Aires, Argentina.
