Traveling for a week? Staying for a month? Starting your life in Buenos Aires?

Well, check out these tips in A Traveler’s Guide to Buenos Aires!

  1. Learn The Language

The most important part of really experiencing all that a city has to offer, is to learn the local language. Now, if you aren’t able to miraculously pick up the language on the streets, no need to worry, there is a place waiting for you and it is called Expanish. First of all, let me clarify, this is not a college where you have to register and sign your life away for 4 years to get a decent education, this is a place you can take as little as one class to as many as 30 classes with the choice of them being private or group taught. ‚ÄúNo hablo espa√Īol‚ÄĚ will forever be removed from your vocabulary.

  1.  Embrace the Slang

Everyone knows that even in English, speaking completely grammatically correct will only get you so far, especially with certain age groups. The jerga of the Argentine culture is key to speaking like a Porte√Īo. All being Argentine natives, the staff at Expanish will make sure that your vocab is up to date and you wont make yourself look like a boludo on the streets. Besides, Expanish also offers free Pronunciation and Argentine Expressions Classes¬†every week.

  1.  Master the Territory

If you have already paid a visit to this bustling city you know exactly what I am talking about, it is gigantic. Although each barrio is as beautiful and lively as the next, you can very easily find yourself miles away from your destination and still be in Buenos Aires. Luckily, the Expanish center is located right in the heart of Buenos Aires, so you are never far away from the shops, the bars, and most importantly the learning. Expanish also offers free tours to explore the city and get familiar with its streets and its unique culture.

  1. Intermingle with Porte√Īos

During your time in Buenos Aires constantly trying to immerse yourself in the Porte√Īo culture, there is no better way than to actually live with Argentines. You’ve got to agree, sitting down at the dinner table and being able to have a conversation about how your day went is way better than an A on a test at a university. How can you make this happen? Yup, you guessed it- Expanish! The Expanish staff works with its students find the ideal living situation for each individual whether that is a homestay, apartment or residence hall. In my opinion, you can’t go wrong with any of the options.

  1. Drink In the Culture

Other than the obvious play on words I used here, there are always places to go to have a delectable Argentine meal, walk around a market, or see a performance of some sort, the only problem is finding where and when they are. Can you see where I’m going here? Expanish makes sure that their students have the opportunity to play just as hard as they work. Activities planned almost every afternoon and night makes it hard to miss out on the lively Porte√Īo culture that makes Buenos Aires the city it is today.

Navidad en Buenos Aires

navidad en ba 1024x517 Navidad en Buenos Aires

Navidad es una de las fechas m√°s especiales del a√Īo para todos los argentinos. Si vas a pasar esa noche en Buenos Aires, te contamos todo lo que necesit√°s saber para que sea inolvidable:

  • En Argentina es tradicional festejar Nochebuena (Christmas Eve) con una cena familiar la noche del 24 de Diciembre. Las reuniones suelen ser en una casa y es com√ļn que cada invitado lleve algo para comer o tomar. Es tradicional en la cena de Nochebuena comer comidas fr√≠as porque hace calor en las noches de verano, pero tambi√©n muchas familias eligen hacer un cl√°sico asado. Normalmente se sirven ensaladas, carnes fr√≠as, huevos rellenos y de postre, ensalada de frutas o helado. Todos esperan hasta las 12 de la noche para brindar, ver los shows de fuegos artificiales y abrir todos los regalos. Con el brindis es muy tradicional comer pan dulce, frutas secas y turrones. Despu√©s de brindar, los m√°s j√≥venes se despiden de sus familias y se re√ļnen con amigos para festejar toda la noche. Los boliches abren alrededor de las 2 am y la fiesta sigue hasta la ma√Īana siguiente.
  • El d√≠a de Navidad las familias en Argentina se re√ļnen para almorzar, normalmente un asado o sobras de la noche anterior. Es un d√≠a m√°s tranquilo que el 24, donde todos aprovechan para relajarse y disfrutar de un d√≠a al aire libre. Hay que tener en cuenta que la mayor√≠a de lugares comerciales est√°n cerrados durante el d√≠a (supermercados, shoppings, etc).
  • Es importante saber que durante la noche del 24 y la mayor parte del 25 los transportes p√ļblicos funcionan con servicios reducidos. Durante la madrugada del 25 es dif√≠cil conseguir colectivos y taxis, por lo que recomendamos planear con anticipaci√≥n los recorridos.
  • Si est√°s pensando en cenar en un restaurante para Navidad, es importante reservar con anticipaci√≥n. La mayor√≠a ofrecen un men√ļ con comida tradicional navide√Īa a un precio fijo. Es normal que los restaurantes en esas noches especiales pidan alg√ļn dinero por adelantado para hacer la reserva.

Si todavía no tenés planes para pasar Navidad en Buenos Aires, acá hay algunas buenas opciones para tener en cuenta:

  • Cena al ritmo del tango: Nada m√°s tradicional en Buenos Aires que una noche de tango. Algunas opciones para hacer en Navidad son:

La Ventana: Ofrecen una cena show especial para Navidad en el corazón de San Telmo. Se puede reservar online acá: http://www.laventanaweb.com/

Cucina D¬īonore: Una opci√≥n de comida italiana en Puerto Madero y un brindis con mesa dulce inclu√≠do. M√°s informaci√≥n en http://www.cucinadonore.com/promociones.php

  • Cena en los hoteles m√°s lindos de Buenos Aires: Para una noche m√°s especial, los hoteles m√°s lujosos de la ciudad abren sus puertas en la noche de Navidad. Conoc√© algunas opciones:

Alvear Palace Hotel: El famoso hotel de Recoleta ofrece una cena de 7 pasos en su restaurante La Bourgogne. El 25 de Diciembre van a servir un brunch navide√Īo con opciones para ni√Īos y adultos. Pueden contactarse con ellos a trav√©s de su Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/alvearpalacehotel

All you need to know about Immigration Office

Tuesday, December 16, 2014 12:42

Categories - Argentina Travel Info - 0 Comments

If you are looking to update your visa, going to Colonia, Uruguay is a simple and fun trip to renew for another three months in Argentina. Many people take a ferry to Uruguay when their 3 months is almost up but there is another way (and technically the right way) to update your visa.

Going to the Immigrations office in Buenos Aires, called Dirección Nacional de Migraciones, is a good option if you’ve been to Uruguay already or if you want to save some pesos. I will tell you that it will not be as fun. You are guaranteed to have a long wait in line (don’t worry, there are seats and air conditioning) for a process that will only take about 10 minutes. But it’s doable and may be necessary!

passport5 300x168 All you need to know about Immigration Office

 

I recently updated my visa this way and I can give you a step-by-step of what to do.

What to Bring With You:

  • A copy of your main passport page with all of your info
  • A copy of the passport page with the Argentina stamp you received upon entering the country
  • Your passport
  • $300 pesos

If for some reason you forgot a copy, you can make copies in the building for one peso per copy.

passport 1 300x168 All you need to know about Immigration Office

  1. Arrive to the building and look for the Edificio N¬į 3 entrance. There will probably be a lot of people and multiple lines.
  2. Go to the Biometría line. It should be the shortest line. If you want to ask to be sure, you can say: Necesito renovar mi visa de turista, cual es la fila que tengo que hacer? Wait in line. There, they will check the papers you brought with you and give you a number.
  3. Take the number and go to Edificio N¬į 6.
  4. Wait for your number to be called. You will be waiting in the K Section for Tramites No Mercosur.
  5. Once your number is called, simply hand your documents to the person in charge. They will ask you for your address and barrio. Be prepared to answer. That’s it! Then they will tell you to go pay.
  6. Go to the caja to pay with the $300 pesos ready. They will give you a receipt and you give the yellow copy to the person originally handling your passport.
  7. Wait for your name to be called again. They will hand everything back to you and you’re done!

passport 4 300x168 All you need to know about Immigration Office

Altogether, I waited around 3 hours in total from the first line to receiving my passport.

How to Get There:

Connect from the A, B, or D Line to the C Line or take the C directly to the last stop at Retiro. Walk along RAMOS MEJIA, JOSE MARIA, DR. toward ANTARTIDA ARGENTINA AV. Turn left and continue (approx. 5 minutes). Ojo for lots of people around the building.

Colonia del Sacramento

Wednesday, November 12, 2014 12:43

Categories - Argentina Travel Info, Uncategorized - 2 Comments

Colonia es una peque√Īa ciudad costera en Uruguay, es m√°s o menos en frente de Buenos Aires o como los porte√Īos dicen “Colonia est√° del otro lado del charco”. Es una ciudad muy pintoresca y relajada con una poblaci√≥n mayor. Si vas a Colonia ten√©s que visitar al barrio¬†hist√≥rico donde han conservado ciertos aspectos del pasado como las calles empedradas y las casa coloniales. Adem√°s, es el destino perfecto para escapar del bullicio de la ciudad de Buenos Aires por algunos d√≠as. En Colonia hay mucho que hacer, tiene una linda playa para relajarte y muchos restaurantes con comida buena, como mariscos. No puedo olvidar mencionar que est√° a s√≥lo una hora de Buenos Aires en barco. Pod√©s tomar un barco desde Puerto Madero y llegar a Colonia en s√≥lo una hora. Los ¬†servicios m√°s conocidos son Colonia Express y Buque bus y el viaje cuesta alrededor de 500 pesos. Adem√°s, para los extranjeros es el destino perfecto para renovar su pasaporte, porque no es posible estar en Argentina por m√°s de 90 d√≠as como turista: es necesario salir del pa√≠s y volver a ingresar. En Colonia la moneda oficial son pesos uruguayos pero tambi√©n se pueden sacar d√≥lares de los cajeros a una tasa conveniente.

Categories - Argentina Travel Info - 0 Comments

Mar del Plata e1413550836515 Mar del Plata

Argentina is well known for its amazing diversity of landscapes (from deserts to waterfalls) but few travellers know that there are also beautiful beaches. Mar del Plata is the second largest city¬†of the province of Buenos Aires on the coast of the Atlantic sea, and it¬īs only 4 hours away from the city. It is the holiday destination¬†for porte√Īos in the summer. The argentine summer begins in December until March. However, it does start to warm up in the middle of October so for those looking for a quiet getaway going before high season is recommended. With the largest beach outside of the city and plenty of things to do both day and night: Restaurants, clubs ¬†and shopping! Take a walk down Guemes there is tonnes of shops to check out and some great restaurants and ice cream stores!

Some places to check out:

Manolo – Rivadavia 2371

This place is renown for the best Churros in town, it is a family owned business originating from Burgos, Spain, the home of Churros!

La Fonte D’oro – Guemes 2760

This cafe/restaurant has both a great selection of coffee and food!

Lucciano’s – Rawson y Guemes on the corner

The best ice cream I have had so far! with 3 locations over the city!

Havanna – Everywhere in Mar del Plata

In Buenos Aires is very traditional to bring some Havanna alfajores as a present when you come back from Mar del Plata, so don¬īt forget to bring a box for your argentine friends!

———————————————————————————————————————————————————————–

Argentina es muy conocida por su incre√≠ble diversidad de paisajes (desde desiertos hasta las Cataratas) pero pocos viajeros saben que tambi√©n tenemos muy lindas playas. Mar del Plata es la segunda ciudad m√°s grande de la provincia de Buenos Aires en la costa del Oc√©ano Atl√°ntico y est√° a s√≥lo 4 horas de la ciudad. Es el destino de las vacaciones de los porte√Īos en el verano. El verano argentino empieza en Diciembre hasta Marzo. Sin embargo, normalmente empieza a hacer el calor¬†en el medio de Octubre, as√≠ que para las personas que quieren escapar la ciudad de Buenos Aires para un fin de semana y disfrutar Mar del Plata en la temporada baja lo recomiendo! Es la playa m√°s grande afuera de la ciudad y tiene muchas cosas que hacer en los d√≠as y las noches! Los restaurantes, los boliches y los lugares de compras son excelentes. Si camin√°s por la calle Guemes, hay muchas tiendas y algunos restaurantes y heladerias buen√≠simas.

No te pierdes a ir a estos restaurantes y cafés:

Manolo – Rivadavia 2371

Este lugar es muy conocido por sus churros, que son los mejores de la ciudad. Es un negocio familiar que viene de Burgos, Espa√Īa, la casa de los Churros!

La Fonte D’oro – Guemes 2760

Este café/restaurante tiene una gran elección de café y comida!

Lucciano’s – Rawson y Guemes en la esquina

El mejor helado que probé fue acá! Con tres locales en la ciudad!

Havanna – En todos lados en Mar del Plata

En Buenos Aires es una tradición traer alfajores Havanna cuando volvés de Mar del Plata, porque allí está la fábrica original. Son riquísimos!

Spring in Buenos Aires: Best time to visit the city!

Monday, October 6, 2014 12:22

50 1024x768 Spring in Buenos Aires: Best time to visit the city!

Buenos Aires is beautiful in any season but in spring it seems to blossom, just¬†like the jacarand√° flowers in the streets. Between September and November the temperature can vary from 14C (57F) to 22C (72F) and it is undoubtedly the perfect time to enjoy this beautiful city. Porte√Īos are always complaining about the weather, but in spring they all seem to agree it is neither hot nor cold – and there are more sunny days than rainy days. The first day of spring in Argentina coincides with the national Student¬īs Day, so every year all the youth are out in the streets, eating outdoors and partying at night. So, if you are planning to visit Buenos Aires in the Spring, here are some tips!

  • Make some Argentine friends and go drink mate in the park. Mate is not only an infusion, but also an experience for the Argentine culture: People tend to sit in a circle on the grass and one of them is in charge of preparing the mate for the rest (in Argentina that’s called¬†cebar el mate). If you were to tell any Argentine that you would like to try some mate, they will most definetely be happy to let you try!
  • Take a tour round the city by bike! The best places to ride are the Bosques de Palermo (where you can use the bike ways to see the lakes and the amazing Planetario), Puerto Madero (no cars allowed and many places to stop and have a snack) and Plaza Francia, one of the most beautiful places to go on sunny days. If you don¬īt have a bike, there are many places to rent one in the city, at accesible costs. Remember that porte√Īos love the spring as well, so on the weekends these places may get a little bit crowded.
  • Eat an¬†asado¬†outdoors. Porte√Īos love organising¬†asados, and spring is the perfect time to eat a good¬†choripan¬†in the sun. If you don¬īt know anyone who is hosting an asado, there are ¬†excellent parrillas in the city to try the best Argentine meat. You can also have a¬†dulce de leche¬†ice cream for dessert!
  • Enjoy spring nights. In winter, nights can get really cold, so when spring comes everyone feels like going out and having fun. Buenos Aires has amazing nightlife, restaurants and bars start to get busy around 10pm. Remember that in Buenos Aires night clubs open at about 1am till 6am, so get ready to experience a city that never sleeps!

Cordoba

Monday, April 21, 2014 13:18

Categories - Argentina Travel Info - 0 Comments

Cordoba is a picturesque city surrounded by valleys and mountains.  Best known for its concentration of Spanish colonial buildings, Cordoba sits only a few hours from the pampas plain and from the Sierras Pampeanas.  If you’re looking for a time to visit, October holds the annual Fiesta nacional de la Cerveza or in other words, Octoberfest!  Octoberfest is held annually for two Weekends in Villa General Belgrano in the provincia of Cordoba.  The party begins at noon and late into the night. People enjoy the show and can taste different varieties of beer and food.

 Cordoba               Cordoba           Cordoba

If October is too far in the future, then head to Cordoba and enjoy the museums, plazas, and history that it has to offer.  For those who prefer museums, the Museo Historico Provincial Marques de Sobremonte offers an 18-th century colonial style house that once belonged Rafael Nunez.  Either way Cordoba offers part of the exciting history surrounding Argentina with a more relaxed feeling than Buenos Aires.

Mar de las Pampas

Thursday, March 27, 2014 14:09

Categories - Argentina Travel Info - 0 Comments

Mar de las Pampas es una hermosa villa balnearia que se ubica a s√≥lo 10 km de Villa Gesell y a 385 km de la ciudad de Buenos Aires. Se la autodenomina “ciudad sin prisa” porque quien la visita puede disfrutar a pleno de la armon√≠a de la naturaleza.

En abril de 1957 una firma de rematadores public√≥ un aviso sobre dos grandes lotes. Estos fueron adquiridos por Antonio V√°zquez, Manuel Rico y Jacobo Zceltman, quienes decidieron fundar un lugar tur√≠stico que se diferenciara del resto de la costa atl√°ntica argentina. El primer paso fue la fijaci√≥n y forestaci√≥n de dunas. Para la tarea se reunieron antecedentes t√©cnicos, bajo la direcci√≥n de los ingenieros agr√≥nomos Moretti y Takacs, y numerosos materiales como semillas, arbustos, variedades de pasto y plantines de √°rboles. Muchas veces los vientos y la arena destruian el trabajo de semanas que al d√≠a siguiente era recomenzado. As√≠ una y otra vez, hasta que al fin el trabajo se termin√≥ y ese lugar se convirti√≥ en un hermoso y frondoso bosque. El paisaje es dominado por el mar, la playa y el bosque de pinos, eucaliptos, acacias y cipreses plantados hace m√°s de 40 a√Īos.
