Buenos Aires is a singular, open and integrating destination that allows the visitor to not only view the city but also to live an exceptional urban adventure. Buenos Aires combines varied experiences and elements suitable to all tastes. Its European style, excellent tourist services, convenient exchange rate & cutural kindness are all pleasant characteristics to consider at the moment of planning a visit to the capital city of the Argentine Republic.

The climate is mild all year round. The average annual temperature is 18º C (64.4º F), making extremely hot and cold days very infrequent. Autumn and spring are marvelous in Buenos Aires -remembering that in the southern hemisphere seasons are the opposite to those in the northern hemisphere.


Although Spanish is the official language of the Argentine Republic, some “lunfardo” expressions -city slang - are used.  English, French, Portuguese and Italian are also spoken in the main hotels and shops. The official Argentine currency is the Peso. Credit & debit cards and traveler's cheques are widely used and accepted.



The two main Argentine hubs are located in Buenos Aires: Ministro Pistarini Airport (in Ezeiza, 35 km away from Buenos Aires, for International flights) and Jorge Newbery Airport (located to the north of the city beside the Río de la Plata, for domestic flights and flights to Uruguay). Valid passport with or without visa depending on your nationality will be required to enter the country. Inquire at your closest Embassy or Consulate.
