Buenos Aires

  • Accommodation:
    • Europlaza Hotel & Suites
  • Transport:
    • To travel by bus or subte (the underground metro) you need to buy a rechargeable SUBE travel card and charge it with credit. These can be found at subte stations, at our tourist centres or kioskos

    • Lines A, B, C, D and E converge in the centre of the city
    • You can catch buses (colectivos or bondis’) which are cheap buses and travel all around the city. You pay cash on board. Simply inform the bus driver where you want to go and they will tell you the fare.
    • Taxis are also an efficient and cheap way to get around. You can tell if one is available if the ‘libre’ (free) sign is lit up in the windscreen. Licensed taxis run on meters, and fares are in Argentine pesos
