Arriving in Buenos Aires

Buenos Aires is a beautiful vacation destination with plenty to see and do, and it is easy to find good deals on airfare to Buenos Aires. Once you book your cheap flight to Buenos Aires, you will arrive at the Ministro Pistarini International Airport, which boasts the wide selection of shopping and dining that you would expect from any major airport. You will also enjoy free Wi-Fi, and of course amenities like ATMs and business services. To get from the airport to your hotel, you will find that there are taxis, private shuttles, and buses available. But keep in mind that if you hail a taxi you should request a fixed rate from the driver up front.

Getting Around Buenos Aires

The city has an excellent public transportation system you can use once your Buenos Aires flight arrives. They have a metro system called the Subte and also a large range of bus routes that will get you to many tourist attractions without confusion. Getting around by foot, especially during the day, is quite easy thanks to streets that are designated as pedestrian only. Taxis are available of course, but again be sure to make sure to get a fixed rate. Taxi safety has improved greatly in recent years. Less recommended modes of transportation within the city include car rentals and bicycling, as the city is pretty congested with traffic and these tend to be less safe than walking or taking the bus.

Sports lovers can watch polo and soccer games, which are popular in the city.
