How to Get There
Plane: Ezeiza International Airport is where you will be flying into if you’re coming in internationally. Make sure you check if you need a visa for entrance to Buenos Aires, most citizens require to pay a fee and will only get single entry passes.
Public Transportation: All tourist attractions can usually be reached by using their underground public transit system. Public transit is affordable but relatively crowded during weekdays and weekends.
Taxis and Cars: Taxis usually take longer than the public transit as traffic can be a little hectic in the city center. They are not expensive and if you are planning on going out of the city off route of the public transit, this may be your best alternative.
Central Buenos Aires: though it is not one specific destination, the entire central square is absolutely beautiful with lots of small shops and beautiful areas to relax. Go by foot and explore the town this way.

Summer: December to February. Not always the best time to visit as the heat and humidity can be uncomforting for many. Temperatures average around 30 degrees Celsius.
Spring: September to November. Temperatures around 15 to 20 degrees Celsius, this is a nice time to visit. Expect a little rain and pack for cooler evenings.
