“Aires And Graces”

published 29/01/2003

Pro Classy, cultural and (at the moment) cheap.

ConsThe current economic situation continues to plague...

Argentina's capital conjures up romantic notions borne out of its reputation as the 'Paris of the South'. Sultry evenings spent in a grand ballroom filled with the impeccably dressed engaged in intricate tango moves while champagne flows Amazon like. The echoes of Evita's vocals drift over the...

“BA Uncovered”

ProThe People, Atmosphere, Gateway to South America, ...

ConsDistance, Expense

The flight to Buenos Aires, into Ezeiza Airport, is a long one from the UK, however due to the +3 to +4 hour time difference the timing of most of the major airlines is very convenient. For example British Airways leaves at around 10pm and lands in Buenos Aires at 7am the next day five days a...

ProThe best meat in the world!

ConsYou may need a laxative after all that red meat!

Restaurants in Buenos Aires. If you go to Argentina, you know that the word vegetarian is unknown in there. so lets face it, you must try meat, so taste, so mmmmm... so here are a few tips, if you are near Recoleta visiting Evita's (Eva Peron) grave you can walk along Junin Street where you can...

ConsHold onto your hats when taking a cab!

If travelling within South America or if you need to visit Argentina, then a stop in Buenos Aires should definitely be on your itinerary. This vibrant city has the look and feel of a Spanish city though retains its sense of South American location. Culturally and socially, the city embraces all...

“Beware the Mixed Grill!”

published 29/09/2000

ProAll the meat you can eat

ConsCloting and electrical goods on the expensive side

Buenos Aires is a shoppers paradise, there are streets and streets full of shops with little of the repetitive chain store influences we are so used to at home. There's even a Harrods department store, even if it's not quite the same thing. Womens clothing seems to be the major theme, which...

Good

ProCheap, cheap, cheap

ConsDirty and chaotic

I had high expectations of B.A. and I was a little disappointed. It is a very cheap place to stay (as is all of Argentina for the time being), but unfortunately it is cheap, dirty and chaotic rather than cheap and charming. There are many very good reasons to come to B.A. though, not least...

“Buenos Aires Visit”

published 23/03/2007

Pro Cheap and plenty to see

Cons Taxi rides and can be dirty in some places

We spent 6 days in the city in September 2006. Our daughter had been there for 3 months, so it was a help having someone to speak Spanish. It is essential to learn some basic Spanish before you get to South America. She was staying in the San Telmo area which is a very lively, fun-filled, place...

“Viva Evita”

published 11/07/2000

ProArt gallery, steak

ConsExpensive

The main thing about Buenos Aires is that it is very expensive compared to the rest of South America - one dollar here equals one US dollar. We found it difficult to find somewhere cheap to stay. There are a few things worth doing and seeing - eating steak is one of them. However we were...
