Getting to Buenos Aires, Argentina
The capital of the Argentine Republic, Buenos Aires is an exciting bustling city that serves as a gateway to the rest of Latin America. Millions of people each year contribute to its steadily growing tourism sector, and international accessibility is high.

By Air - There are two main airports in Buenos Aires: the Ezeiza International Airport and Aeroparque Jorge Newbery. The former is located in an area called Gran Buenos Aires, and caters to both international and domestic flights. Visitors from North America, Europe and other parts of South America will fin d it fairly easy to get to this airport. There are also direct flights from US cities such as Atlanta, Miami and Washington via air services such as Delta and Continental. Visitors coming from Sydney, Malaysia and Canada will also be able to fly here although the flights for these routes will involve a transit at another location.

Once you have reached the airport, you can choose to hop onto a bus or taxi to reach your specific destination. The bus stop is located just outside the terminal and provides a cheap way of getting downtown. Be sure to choose the right buses as each bus takes a different route, even those that are of the same number. As for taxis, visitors are highly recommended to take prepaid taxis so as to avoid being overcharged. If there are no prepaid taxis, try to take those that charge by the meter.

The second airport, Aeroparque Jorge Newbery, caters mainly to domestic flights. It is useful if you are travelling from other parts of South America, and is located very near to the downtown area.

By Rail - There are several overnight trains that depart from locations such as Retiro, Cordoba and Tucuman. Ticket prices vary according to the routes and also according to the quality of the train service. You are highly recommended to purchase the tourist class tickets.

By Car - Travelling to Buenos Aires by car is usually an option chosen by those coming from the neighbouring countries of Uruguay or Brazil. There are major highways that you can use to get to your destinations, so be sure to confirm which highway is best for you before heading out.

By Bus - You can also reach Buenos Aires by taking buses from cities such as Mendoza, Cordoba, Bariloche, Iquaza and Rosaria. Bus travel tends to be cheaper and you can still travel in style by choosing some of the more exclusive bus services.
