Buenos Aires Area Map
The best way to get around Buenos Aires is by subway, also known as "the subte." The subte is quick, affordable, and easy to navigate with maps, easily attainable at subte stations. Bus lines are also efficient, although they are less trotted by tourists. Taxis are another convenient way to get around the city; however, taxi drivers are known to scam foreign visitors by taking longer, more round-about routes to increase the fare. Look for black and yellow radio taxis, which are metered. With an efficient public transportation system and abundance of taxis, there's no need to rent a car in Buenos Aires.
Buenos Aires' major airport, Ezeiza Ministro Pistarini (EZE), with many international carriers sits 45 minutes west of the city by car. There are several direct flights offered daily between major U.S. cities such as New York, Miami, and Los Angeles. Domestic flights sometimes fly through Jorge Newberry Airport (AEP), which is located just 15 minutes north of Buenos Aires by car. While some visitors may opt to hop on a Leon bus (which runs roughly every 30 minutes between the city and both airports), taxis are the most hassle-free means of getting into town. Flagging a taxi will only set you back about $35 ARS (roughly $8 USD).Getting To & Around Buenos Aires»
