USEFUL QUERIES /FAQs
How do I get to Buenos Aires city center from Ezeiza airport?
Taxis: The most comfortable option is to take a private car. There are two types of taxis you can take when landing. The first is one that there is an official Ezezia Taxi stand just to the left as you exit customs-they speak English at the desk. A taxi from the airport to the Buenos Aires city center costs around $30 to $35. They accept credit cards and pesos if you have them. You prepay at the desk and then a driver/helper takes you out to the car. Tips are of course at your discretion. The second type of taxi is one that you take once you are outside. Both are really good options. In the city, there are plenty of private cars that offer the service at a fixed price.
Tienda León: It’s a private company that offers transfers and shuttle buses to airports. It has a central station in Retiro (downtown). The service can be combined with a car if you want them to pick you up at the hotel. You can pay at the station with cash or credit card. It works 24 hours and has buses every 30 minutes. Here you can see the prices.
Uber: UBER may not be the best choice from the airport to the city center at this time. There is still on-going conflict between Uber and taxi drivers, and you as a passenger may get drawn in.
Warning: There is another option that we would never suggest; it is to book a ride from some guys that offer you a ride when you are walking towards the terminal exit. Those might be a problem. we have no proof, but I just avoid those.
