Traffic Information

 

The roads in Buenos Aires are well maintained and many major freeways radiate out from the city center, making it easy to visit the surrounding countryside. If you are picking up your rental from Ezeiza International Airport, it is 20 miles to the city center on Au 25, this route will take you around 40 minutes. Be aware that most autopista have tolls and when traveling on highways and main roads it is mandatory to keep your low lights on 24 hours a day.

 

The city is based on a grid pattern, with major avenues providing good access to the central Plaza De Mayo. Traffic can get very congested in the center and it is almost impossible to park in downtown Buenos Aires. Make sure you find designated parking spaces when parking in any neighborhood to avoid getting fined or towed. When parking your vehicle always face in the direction of the traffic. At intersections the rule is to always give way to the right, but often in reality the first to pull up to the intersection and honk their horn goes first. Road safety has improved significantly in the last few years, but don't expect everyone to indicate and be aware of what other drivers may do.

Sixt Tips

 

Buenos Aires is a multicultural city, over the last two centuries the arrival of millions of immigrants have made the city a unique cultural melting pot that ranks as the top tourist destination in Latin America. The cities architecture reflects its diversity with art deco, French bourbon and neo-gothic styles sitting side by side. Of the 48 districts San Telmo is the oldest, many tango bars, cafes and restaurants retain their original interiors from the 1800s. There are more active theaters in Buenos Aires than London, New York or Paris, so your weekends will be full of options for live entertainment.

 

If you want to experience some of the world's best acoustics try the Teatro Colón opera house. It is among the best in the world with Maria Callas, Enrico Caruso, Birgit Nilsson and Luciano Pavarotti all having graced its stage. Buenos Aires also has a literary tradition of epic proportions, with over 700 book stores we recommend the El Atenio Grand Splendid, a palatial theater come bookstore that has retained its original architectural features. The theater continues to hosts concerts so you can listen while you browse. Being the birthplace of numerous art movements the city continues to have a thriving art culture. The deconstructionist architecture of Malba gallery is particularly impressive, it specializes in 20th Century Latin American works alongside contemporary exhibitions.
