Our experience of using the taxis in Buenos Aires was very positive. Our accommodation provider Poetry Building organised a pick up from EZE international airport and a drop off at Jorge Newbery costing in total $95 which we felt was good value.
Pedro collected us in large comfortable car and as we travelled through the green suburbs he told us a lot about Argentina and Buenos Aires in particular. He gave us a restaurant recommendation and safely delivered us to the door of Poetry Building in the upmarket neighbourhood of Recoleta. Our journey was a conversation of social issues, politics and passing landmarks and it made for a great start to our South American adventure.
We used local taxis within the city and found that a trip from Recoleta to Caminito, La Boca would be as little as $6. All drivers were friendly and despite many only speaking Spanish somehow or another we always reached our destination with laughs and smiles.
