TRIP RECOMMENDATIONS: BUENOS AIRES
In Buenos Aires you should not change money at the airport since the exchange rate is very unfavorable for tourists. Within the city you must use the Argentine pesos and exact change for small shops and public transport.
Buy books, cigarettes and music, since these products do not have taxes in Argentina.
To move around the city you can take buses since the buses run through every neighborhood; or take the subway. We recommend using only the right change and coins and avoid peak times, between 8:00 am and 10:00 am; and between 5:00 pm and 7:00 pm.
The international code of Argentina is 54 and the code of Buenos Aires is 11. To call a cell phone you must use the code 54, but before you must put a 9 before the Buenos Aires code of 11.
