FAQ about Buenos Aires venues and events
The public transportation in Buenos Aires is pretty well-connected, and you’ll have several options, such as the subway (subte) and buses (colectivos) to get around. If you prefer a more private mode of transportation, you can rent a car, hail a taxi, walk, or simply bike around the city.
Of course! Uber works in Buenos Aires, but we recommend you download BA Taxi, the official taxi app by the Government of Buenos Aires. Other private apps you can download are EasyTaxi, Cabify, Beat, and 99.
Buenos Aires is a cosmopolitan city and hosts several international events every year, so you’ll find that most vendors, hotels, and event venues can converse with you in English. However, smaller spaces may not have a high level of proficiency, so it’s always helpful to know a bit of Spanish.
But don’t worry if you don’t speak Spanish. There are several translators available that can help you.
In Buenos Aires, the best way to pay for services depends on your preference and the type of service you're using. Cash (Argentine Peso) is widely accepted and convenient for everyday expenses, but credit and debit cards are widely used and accepted in hotels, restaurants, and most establishments.
Many places also offer contactless payment options. You can withdraw Argentine pesos from ATMs using your debit card, but be aware of potential fees. Some businesses may accept mobile payment apps or digital wallets like Mercado Pago or Ualá.
The cancellation policies for Buenos Aires venue hire are similar to the cancellation policies for event venues in other cities. That is, the closer to the event date you cancel, the less money you will get as a refund. Be wary though, most event venues will offer you no refund if cancel 48 hours before the event date!
The peak season for popular venues in Buenos Aires is between November to March, so if you’re planning your event in those months, it’s advisable to make your bookings at least 8 months in advance.
Otherwise, for large-scale events, we advise you to make your booking at least 6-12 months in advance, while mid-sized events require a time frame of 3-6 months, and small gatherings can book their event venue about 3 months in advance.
Tipping is not expected in Buenos Aires but it’s always appreciated. If you had exceptionally good service, we recommend you leave a tip that’s 10% of your total bill.
Although there are no mandatory vaccines for entering Buenos Aires, event attendees who are planning on visiting other parts of South America are advised to take the following vaccines: hepatitis A, hepatitis B, typhoid, cholera, yellow fever, and rabies.
The city has a humid subtropical climate, which means spring (September to November) is fairly pleasant while summer (December to February) can be hot and humid. Autumn (March to May) and winter (June to August) are generally cold but not unbearably so.
