Holding the whole thing together is Avenida Rivadavia, an immensely long street (it is the longest in the world) that runs east to west for nearly two hundred blocks, outside the city limits. Through the very heart of the center runs the spectacularly wide Avenida 9 de Julio, orientated conglomeration of four multi-lane roads.

Food in Buenos Aires

Buenos Aires is the Latin America's gastronomic capital. As well as the excellent and ubiquitous pizza and pasta restaurants common to the country as a whole, the capital offers an ever-increasing number of cosmopolitan cuisines, ranging from Turkish through Basque to Japanese. The city's crowning glory, however, for meat eaters at least, are its parrillas. At the top end of the range, there are restaurants offering the country's choicest beef cooked on an asador criollo that is staked around an open fire. There are plenty of humbler places, too, where you can enjoy a succulent parrillada in a lively atmosphere. There are excellent restaurants throughout the city but, with a few exceptions, the center and the south are best for the city's most traditional restaurants whilst the north is the place to head for if you're looking for more innovative or exotic cooking.

Puerto Madero, the recently renovated port area, is knee-deep in big, glitzy themed restaurants, these are hardly the capital's most exciting eating options. You'll find a far more original crop of restaurants in Palermo borough, where restaurants are given added charm by being located in elegant late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century constructions.

Most restaurants open in the evening at around 8pm. Most restaurant kitchens close around midnight during the week, though at weekends many keep serving till the small hours. There are also plenty of confiterías and pizzerias that open all night, which you can enjoy at any time.

Nightlife in BA

Buenos Aires is often called the city that never sleeps and for good reason. The streets are busy at all hours of the night, and you can feel a distinct energy throughout the city. The Porteno nightlife is one of the best you'll experience and has a little something for everyone One important thing to remember is that everything starts VERY late here. When people are planning to go out, they will usually start dinner sometime between 10PM and 12AM. Then everyone meets up at someone's house or a bar for a while. Around 2AM - 3AM, people go to the clubs. For most foreigners, this is a hard schedule to get used to, but if you try to go out earlier, you'll likely be the only ones there!

Transportation

Argentina is one of the most advanced countries in Latin America in terms of transport, with modern facilities, and good accessibility. The Public transportation is an efficient service, usually running 24 hours.

Bus:
The urban bus is commonly known as 'Colectivos' or sometimes 'Bondis' in slang. The service is very frequent -you will rarely have to wait more than five minutes during the day. The bus system is a service with 'stops' (a place where passengers are waiting to take a bus) spread on the streets with a distance 400 meters among each one of them. Before you even think of boarding a bus, you will need to make sure you have coins ('Monedas') for your journey. Banknotes are not accepted. Introducing coins into the machine, you get a ticket to travel. There is a prepaid card named SUBE, that works with every city bus or metro. If you are visiting Buenos Aires for a week or more, you should definitely purchase a Guia T. For sale at most news stands and often on the subway, the Guia T is a little pocket-sized book providing detailed maps of city streets and outlines how to get around by bus.

By Subway:
The 'Subte' (as it's called in BUENOS AIRES) or Metro, is the faster and more frequent (every 5 minutes), though it can be very crowded during morning and evening peak hours. The service runs from 5am to 10pm (8am to 10pm on Sundays). The ticket is electro-magnetic and it's dispensed in the same station. Large parts of the city are not served by the network, including some important tourist areas such as Recoleta and Palermo Viejo.

By Taxi:
Taxis in Buenos Aires are reasonable priced and plentiful (except in rainy rush hours). Taxis are easy to identify because they are painted yellow and black (roof), and they are circulating in thousands through BUENOS AIRES. To take a taxi can be done from anywhere in the city, making signs to the driver or the Radio Taxi ( To request a taxi by phone ), it's the safer service to travel on taxi . Currently are circulating over 40,000 taxis by BUENOS AIRES

By Train:
There's a good deal of railway connections to the suburban area laid out in such a way that it resembles a shape of a star. The quality of the service ranges from excellent to not quite so desirable, depending of the line; ask before using them at night time. The main railway terminals are Retiro, Constitucion, Once and Federico Lacroze. From all of these you can then use the metro and bus network to get right into the center. The suburban fares are very cheap. Another train is 'Tren de la Costa'. It has a tourist profile that reaches the Delta del Tigre (The Great BUENOS AIRES, the Noth zone ), traveling across the coastline of Rio de la Plata. If you are making a tour to Delta or Tigre, we recommend to travel with this service.
