    • Couple's trip to Buenos Aires and Mar Del Plata

      Mar del Plata Sep 11, 2014 at 6:57 PM

      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?

      7 days to see Buenos Aires Sites and getting to Iguazu Falls

      Provincia de Buenos Aires Jan 4, 2013 at 9:45 AM

      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

    • Iris from Louisiana going to Recoleta buenos aires

      Provincia de Buenos Aires Jun 5, 2012 at 1:55 PM

      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

    • Staying for 2-3 weeks with a 2.5 yr old toddler in Buenos Aires

      Provincia de Buenos Aires Jan 31, 2011 at 11:40 PM

      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!

    • Shopping for Apartments in High Season

      Provincia de Buenos Aires Jun 9, 2010 at 7:00 AM

      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?

      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.

      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.
