Although, we recommend for you to use LATAM orAerolíneas Argentinas which operate flights to Ezeiza Airport (the main international airport, on the outskirts of the city) and to Aeroparque (AEP, a smaller airport located close to downtown).

There are several taxi kiosks on the arrivals area of the airport terminals. Taking a taxi to downtown Buenos Aires is prized between $29 and $35 USD. Do not use taxis that operate outside the authorized companies.

There are plenty of exchange places called “Casas de cambio” in downtown. There are no longer rate controls on the dollar, so the market exchange rate is available everywhere. You can also obtain pesos by using your ATM card at any bank.  For foreign cards there’s usually a limit of $2,000 ARG per day.
