Pre and Post Cruise Accommodation – Where to Stay ?
Many hotels are located within reasonable distance of the cruise passenger terminal, which is located at Puerto Buenos Aires, situated about half a mile from downtown. Large cruise ships dock at the new passenger terminal called Benito Quinquela Martin, Puerto Nuevo. Plenty of taxis are available and very reasonable.
A recommended area is Recoleta, a more residential area with lots of restaurants, first class hotels, beautiful architecture, fashionable boutiques and lots of small shops. Puerto Madero is another excellent area. It’s a newly developing neighborhood, safe, and within walking distance to nice restaurants, to Plaza de Mayo, Casa Rosada and the Cathedral. It is considered one of the safest area’s of Buenos Aires. Another option is staying in a reasonable priced or more luxurious hotel in downtown Buenos Aires, very near to the port.
Add a couple days to your cruise and visit the spectacular Iguazu Falls. Highly recommended !
