1-  Pack your bags!

Packing you bags is always a hard task, especially if you are one of those who never know what to pack and end up putting your whole wardrobe in your bag. We don´t want you to pay any excess baggages fees and that´s why we give you important tips.

Buenos Aires has four well defined seasons and this means it´s gonna be really hot in  summer, there will be  a mild climate with fallen leaves during the fall, it´s gonna be cold in July and the city will be filled with flowers during spring, Because of this, it´s really useless to carry a lot of sweaters if you´re traveling in January and you CANNOT forget your gloves and jackets if you´re traveling in July. You can also check the weather forecast by searching for “pronostico del tiempo Buenos Aires” and that can help you see how´s the weather in the city.

2- Check your Visa status

This is a very specific topic because the required documentation for your entry depends on the country you´re from. If your country is a part of MERCOSUL, this means you can stay in Argentina for 90 days and can entry the country simply by using your Id. If you´re not from these countries, you need to check the necessary procedures for obtaining your visa. You can do that by contacting the Argentinian Embassy in your country. HERE is a list of all the argentinian embassies and consulates in the world.

Please remember you need to have a valid passport!

Do you already know where you´re staying? Palermo, Recoleta, Belgrano, Centro…? Before traveling, learn  more about the city by reading blogs and sites to see the best options! You can get to know the downtown part of the city and its amazing historical builidings, have dinner at Puerto Madero, go shopping at Barrio Chino, wander through the Palermo Parks, have a delicious helado (ice cream), see a play at Corrientes Avenue, drink a coffee in one of the many traditional coffee houses…WOW!
