Buenos Aires Guide
What are the best places to stay in Buenos Aires?
Palermo is the largest neighbourhood in the Argentinian capital, and it’s one of the most popular spots among first-time visitors holidaying on cheap flights to Buenos Aires. It’s teeming with excellent restaurants, cafes, shops, and art galleries, and it’s also where you’ll find one of the best nightlife scenes in the city. Palermo is well-connected to public transport, and it’s within easy walking distance of many top attractions to see while visiting Argentina on flights to Buenos Aires. Highlights of the neighbourhood include the Botanical Gardens, the Latin American Art Museum of Buenos Aires, and Museo Nacional de Arte Decorativo.
This small neighbourhood south of the city centre is another popular spot to stay while holidaying on return flights to Buenos Aires. The neighbourhood was first settled by the Spanish and Italians and it still has a distinctly European feel to it. The colourful buildings in La Boca, as well as its reputation as a tango hub, make it a favourite among both locals and tourists. Head to local theatres to see large tango performances, and you’ll often spot tango dancers along the bustling El Caminito laneway. You’ll also be surrounded by a great selection of restaurants, museums, and shops if you base yourself in La Boca while visiting Argentina on flights to Buenos Aires.
This cool neighbourhood is right next to the tourist hub of Palermo, but it’s more under-the-radar than its neighbour. There are less tourist attractions in Villa Crespo than some other central Buenos Aires neighbourhoods, so it’s a good place for travellers who are looking to see the city from a local perspective. Wander the streets to see colourful street art murals, pop into restaurants serving incredible Argentinian cuisine, and dance alongside locals at tango dance halls. Good transport links also ensure you’ll never be far from the tourist attractions of the city centre if you reserve Villa Crespo accommodation after booking cheap flights to Buenos Aires.
What is the best way to get around Buenos Aires?
The Argentinian capital has a vast network of public transportation, so you’ll have no trouble exploring the city while holidaying on cheap flights to Buenos Aires.
You can start making your way around by public transport soon after arriving on flights to Buenos Aires. Public bus line 8 connects Ministro Pistarini International Airport (EZE) to Plaza de Mayo and Congress in the city centre, while the Arbus shuttle travels between Aeroparque Jorge Newbery International Airport (AEP) and Obelisco in the city.
The local metro is called the subte, and it’s made up of six routes. Five of those subte lines offer extensive service around the centre, and each one connects major attractions and neighbourhoods across Buenos Aires.
Public buses are another option available to visitors who book airfare to Buenos Aires. Buses run 24 hours a day and travel to destinations all over central Buenos Aires as well as the suburbs.
Taxis and Ubers are also widely available across the Argentinian capital, providing another transport option to visitors holidaying on return flights to Buenos Aires.
What should I pack for Buenos Aires?
Argentina uses two plug types – one is type I, which is the same plug used in New Zealand. However, some power points also use type C so be sure you pack appropriate adaptors while preparing to visit Argentina with tickets to Buenos Aires.
The summer months are hot, so bring along things like shorts, t-shirts, sundresses, and sandals if you book airfare to Buenos Aires for a summer holiday. Also pack some swimsuits for trips to the beach. Bring warmer clothes like jeans, jumpers, a scarf, and a jacket if you’ll be travelling on winter flights to Buenos Aires as temperatures get chilly at this time of year. Layered clothing is ideal for a spring or autumn getaway as the days can be warm, but the evenings are often brisk. Also note that the people of Buenos Aires are known for their excellent fashion sense, so you may want to pack some of your best pieces, particularly if you’ll be enjoying nights out in between return flights to Buenos Aires.
A comfortable pair of walking shoes is another must-pack item for travellers who book tickets to Buenos Aires. You’ll do plenty of walking around the city, plus there are dozens of beautiful national parks to visit across Argentina.
