About Buenos Aires

Buenos Aires is often called the “Paris of South America,” for its soaring architecture and rich European heritage. But the city and its people, known as porteños, are a study in contrasts: European sensibilities and Latin American passion; wide boulevards and cobblestone alleys; steamy tango and romping rock and roll; sidewalk cafés and soccer fanatics; bejeweled ladies draped in fur coats and children rummaging through garbage for cardboard scraps. Buenos Aires, which sprawls over 78 square miles (202 square kilometers) and has a population of about three million, is a patchwork of distinct, fascinating communities, from the frenetic downtown and working-class tanguero neighborhoods such as La Boca and San Telmo, to wealthy districts such as Recoleta and trendy Palermo, to middle-class barrios such as Belgrano and Caballito.

How to get here

Buenos Aires is served by two main airports:

  • Most international flights arrive at Ministro Pistarini International Airport (EZE), in Ezeiza, 22km (14 miles) from the city of Buenos Aires.
  • Many domestic flights, and flights from neighbouring countries, arrive at Jorge Newbery Airport, known as Aeroparque (AEP), in the Palermo neighbourhood of Buenos Aires.

Getting to the city from Ministro Pistarini Airport (Ezeiza): Taxis are available at arrivals, and there are booths inside the arrivals areas where you can arrange private hire cabs at a fixed price. Staff will escort you to your car. The bus company Manuel Tienda León runs buses from the airport to its base in Puerto Madero, in the center of Buenos Aires city. You can pay online or at their desk at the airport. ArBus runs a shuttle service from EZE terminal C to Jorge Newbery Airport (AEP), in the Palermo neighbourhood of Buenos Aires city. You can pay online, or, if you already have a SUBE card, on board the bus itself. The journey from Ezeiza to the center of Buenos Aires can take around 50 minutes.

From Aeroparque Jorge Newbery (AEP): Jorge Newbery Airport is located in the Palermo neighbourhood. Taxis are available outside the arrivals area, and there are stops nearby for several public bus lines. (You will need a SUBE card to use local buses - ask at the Jorge Newbery Tourist Assistance Center) ArBus runs a shuttle bus service to Retiro Coach Station and the Madero mini-bus terminal, near the obelisk in the central downtown area. Buses leave every 30 minutes between 6.30am and 11.30pm. You can pay at the desk in the arrivals area, online, or, if you have a SUBE card, on board the bus itself. There is also a service to Ezeiza airport.
