Peak Season: 

Though the holidays will hardly bring about a Buenos Aires flight that won’t break the bank, celebrating under the Argentine sun is an experience worth every peso. The months of December, January and February are full of long days that lead into nights at a boliche (discotheque) that’ll inevitably conclude with breakfast at a cafetería (coffee shop). 

Argentine Independence Day, on July 9, also draws a huge crowd to the capital city for revelry and remembrance.

With study abroad programs in Buenos Aires becoming more and more popular with secondary schools and colleges around the world, students will be booking flights to Buenos Aires for January, February and July in order to begin their autumn and spring semesters, respectively.

The population of Argentina is predominantly Catholic, which is why Semana Santa (Holy Week) is observed for the week preceding Easter. Finding accommodation or cheap flights to Buenos Aires surrounding this period may be difficult, seeing as many Argentines abroad return home to visit and spend time with family.

For travellers planning on a holiday in Buenos Aires that’ll land them in a sun-drenched city on the autumnal cusp, book flights to Buenos Aires for March or April before or after Semana Santa (Holy Week).

City overview

The most European city in South America – Buenos Aires – has been enjoying a revival with the rise of hip new neighbourhoods and the inception of trendy hotels and restaurants. Luring visitors with its grand avenues and magnificent architecture, the city rivals any other cosmopolitan city with its charm and sophistication.

The best way to really explore the city is on foot. Stroll through the cobbled streets and stop by Plaza de Mayo, the most important spot in the city. It was here in 1810 where the May Revolution began and where the beloved Evita greeted the crowds from the balcony of the famous Casa Rosada.

Porteños (Buenos Aires residents) are passionate by nature, especially when it comes to their football and tango. La Bombonera stadium is where all the boisterous games take place and is home to Boca Juniors, the team that launched Diego Maradona’s career. To experience authentic tango head to San Telmo and walk in to one of its many Milongas (tango halls) that line the streets. Lessons are offered by professional Milongueros, or wait for a quick nod from another dancer – that’s the unspoken invitation for the next dance.

Getting around Buenos Aires

The oldest subway in South America, the subte, is a quick, cheap and efficient way to get around Buenos Aires. The buses can take you anywhere, but it may not be worth the effort to figure out the routes. Buenos Aires is great to walk around – lovely streets, plazas and parks. You can also grab a radio taxi, which is safer than street taxis. You can identify them by the plastic light boxes on their roofs. Make sure you know your destination’s address and cross street, as some drivers don’t know the city very well. You don’t need a car to get around the city, but if you drive, make sure you find out the rules of the road.

Getting from the Airport to the City

A number of private bus companies operate between the Ministro Pistarini International Airport (EZE) and central Buenos Aires; services are regular and take around 45 minutes. Public bus is cheaper but can take longer than two hours to the city centre. Metered taxis are also available outside the terminal buildings, and chauffeured cars (remises) are available for hire on the lower level of both terminals.
