By plane from Easter Island via Santiago de Chile to Buenos Aires.
At the airport was only one bank for changing money (with a long waiting line), but they had better rates then the money changers in town. The Banco Nation at Plaza de Mayo had also decent rates. ATM's have very high extra charges. My MasterCard did not always work (a general problem in Argentinia and Chile).
For Metro and Bus you need a Sube card (Octopus type card) available and rechargeable at Metro stations and some 24 hour minimarkets.
Bus number 8 goes from the Ezeiza International Airport via Once (Metro and suburban train), Plaza de Mayo (Metro) to La Boka with some detours taking 1,5 hours (without traffic jam) a bit faster and more expensive is Tienda Leon.

Mar del Plata


View South America 2019/20 on UliS's travel map.

By bus a short visit to Mar del Plata. At first one sees a lot of mostly bland highrise buildings with sometimes a leftover from earlier times, usualy in some sort of english style between. A few blocks from the beach they become more common, paticulaly around the main shopping street Martin Miguel de Güermes. Off season the place is quite reasonable.
