Tips for First-Time Travellers to Buenos Aires

Budget carefully for your trip

Argentina is one of the most expensive countries in South America. Once your flights to Buenos Aires are booked, start working on your budget and overestimate how much you'll need. Daily costs in the city quickly add up, and you'll need a large budget to get by.

Transport from the airport

Ezeiza International Airport (EZE) is where all flights from Australia will land. There are several transportation options available to help you get to your hotel safely. If you're on a budget, you can take the bus line 8 from Ezeiza International Airport (EZE) to the city centre. But if you're travelling in a large group or you have a lot of luggage, it's easier to take a metered cab. Drivers are waiting outside of the arrivals hall, or you can arrange with your hotel to organise a private transfer.

Cash is king

Once your flights to Buenos Aires land, it's a good idea to withdraw cash from the ATMs inside Ezeiza International Airport (EZE). There are not many places around the city that accept credit cards, and you'll need money to pay for your taxi ride, food, and other expenses.

Accommodation tax

If you're booking your accommodation in Buenos Aires online, you will see that there is a 21% tax charge upon check-in. However, if you pay with credit card, the hotel is obligated to avoid the tax. Before booking, check with the hotel to see if they accept payment by card.

Top Experiences For Visitors in Argentina with An Airfare to Buenos Aires

Plaza de Mayo

Plaza de Mayo is where you'll find the city's beautiful 16th-century colonial buildings. The plaza is two blocks long and much of it is pedestrianised. After your flights to Buenos Aires have landed and you've checked into your hotel, call a taxi and wander past the plaza’s famous landmarks, such as the Presidential Palace and Casa Rosada.

The Recoleta Cemetery

The Recoleta Cemetery is a popular attraction in the city. What most travellers who buy tickets to Buenos Aires don't know is that it's the final resting place for important figures such as Eva Peron. You can visit the opulent crypts and explore the many nearby gardens, cafes and craft shops.

The Teatro Colon

If you're a lover of the arts, book your flights to Buenos Aires and visit the Teatro Colon. It's famous around the world for its opera, ballet, and classical musical performances. The building first opened in 1908 and has hosted some of the biggest names in music, such as Pavarotti and Stravinksy.

Packing Tips

Pack one nice outfit

If you're booking flights to Buenos Aires and you're planning on attending a tango show, pack an outfit for a night on the town. You don't need to dress to the nines, but a pair of heels or a dinner jacket will help add to the experience.

Bring an adapter

You'll need to buy an international plug adapter for Argentina. The country uses plug types C and I, and you'll need a surge protector for your hair styling tools. After you've confirmed your flights to Buenos Aires, put buying an adapter at the top of your to-do list. Avoid purchasing one last-minute at Ezeiza International Airport (EZE), as it can be costly.

Avoid looking like a tourist

The locals of Buenos Aires love fashion and dress in a mix of formal or casual. If you wear typical traveller outfits, you will stand out. Try to avoid wearing shorts if you don't want to be pegged as a tourist. You'll also want to leave the heels in your suitcase as the streets are made with cobblestones.
