Departure points & where you stay in South America
Last Updated: 9th Feb 2012
When flying into Jorge Chavez International airport you have several options for arriving to your hotel. The most secure option is to book an arrival transfer directly from Gray Line. This service must be arranged in advance so that they will be waiting for you upon your arrival. When you exit the baggage terminal into the main pick-up area a Gray Line representative will be waiting for you with a placard with your name on it. It can be busy so keep on eye out for your name. Be sure to have you voucher printed and ready to submit. Because this is not a private transfer service you may be required to wait for other clients to arrive.
If you choose not to book an arrival transfer you can take an official airport Green taxi to Miraflores for approximately $35 USD (this can be paid by cash, Mastercard or Visa at their desk in the airport). Depending on the traffic, the ride will take between 40-60 minutes. We do NOT recommend taking unofficial taxis or the public bus into the city centre.
Buenos Aires, Argentina
International flights arrive into Ezeiza airport in Buenos Aires, located approximately an hour out of town. The easiest way to get to the hotel is to take an official airport taxi for approximately 180-190 Argentine Pesos. Please note taxis have meters and so the actual price may vary based on the amount of traffic in the city.
Another transfer option is to take the shuttle bus service, Manuel Tienda Leon, which can be arranged upon arrival and costs approximately 220 Argentine Pesos. Often they will drop you off directly at the hotel for free, however, you should confirm this with them before paying for the service. If you arrive during the day there is a public bus that runs as far as the Plaza de Mayo but it is a long ride and can take up to 3 hours in heavy traffic. The current cost of the bus (April 2011) is 1.50 Argentine Pesos.
