Travel Info

Specific information about Argentina and the city of Buenos Aires can be found in the official web sites http://www.sectur.gov.ar/ and http://www.bue.gov.ar/.
 

Venue:

The entry point to Buenos Aires is Ezeiza International Airport, located about 25 km southwest. The company Manuel Tienda León provides bus, shuttle and car transport with prices ranging between 28$ (pesos) for a bus ride to Madero Terminal in downtown Buenos Aires, till around 75$ in a remis (private car with driver) that carries up to three passengers to specified destinations. Several taxi and remis companies offer their services in the airport lobby and in the outside yard adjacent to the main building. For your safety, hire your transport EXCLUSIVELY at some identified counter where you will get an official receipt and an assistant, or the driver himself, will lead you to the car. You should neither leave the airport area to look for a street cab, nor accept offers voiced by unidentified drivers.

Transport:

Taxis in Buenos Aires work with meters, and remises can drive passengers point to point at a rate agreed in advance. Taxis are painted black and yellow, and carry on the roof a sign identifiying the cab company. This identification must be clearly visible on both back doors. Never board a cab without proper identification; although they are usually run by the owners, who as an overwhelming majority, are decent people who work for their living, it is not advisable to take risks if you do not know the city. At hotels, restaurants and shops, the staff may phone a taxi or a remis for you.
 
Buenos Aires possesses an excellent public bus service, in addition to subway and suburban trains. Due to the high density of buses, traffic is rather chaotic, and unfortunately, drivers are not highly disciplined, so you must be very careful at street crossings. Note also that in Argentina, people queue to wait for the bus and keep the line when boarding. A bus ride costs 0.80$; coins -no notes- in any combination must be deposited in indicated slots on the bus.

Transportation to the Conference:

There is going to be a bus in the morning bringing people to the conference place from Ayacucho Palace Hotel and returning them back in the evening.
 
For people staying in hotels in the surroundings of Avenida del Libertador and General Paz (Hotel Vicente López) there is probably going to be a bus for transportation, depending on the number of participants staying there. Information will be available on the web in the next days.

Safety:

Although Buenos Aires is a relatively safe city, being a large metropolis it hosts some undesirable people. Please follow simple safety tips, like:
  • Do not leave bags and purses unattended on chairs in restaurants and coffee shops; this is absolutely mandatory when sitting in open terraces.
  • When carrying bags and purses in the streets, always hold the strap firmly with one hand.
  • Do not exhibit money in the street. Automatic cash machines, which deliver currency in pesos and in US$, are everywhere abundant and usually located in closed cabins.
  • Whenever possible, do not go alone to get your cash.

Maps:

The Government of the City of Buenos Aires sponsors a very good interactive map service at this web page. Unfortunately the menu and instructions are in Spanish only, but you will manage to reach the info you look for (please ask us).
