  1. I have used Uber in Bs As to go distances similar in length to that of EZE to Recoleta. Cost is about $10 at todays exchange rates (USD = 70 pesos+). The problem is that UberXL (large vehicles) is not an option. Accordingly, if you have a lot of luggage and want to be sure to obtain a vehicle capable of carrying it all, it is best to go to the Taxi EZE stand OUTSIDE the secure area and ask for a taxi "familiar" which is a larger SUV type vehicle. The EZE stand inside the secure area has much higher prices. I would estimate the cost to be about $20 or less. p.s. Today the USD is trading f
  2. Take a cab to the base of Sugarloaf in the Urca barrio, then the cable car to the summit. https://www.google.com.ar/maps/place/Sugarloaf+Mountain/@-22.9492383,-43.1633305,15z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m5!3m4!1s0x9980409039f845:0x8075d7bcdfbcb48c!8m2!3d-22.9492586!4d-43.1545757
  3. If you want to fly out of Santiago on the day you disembark, be prepared to spend the night in Lima, then next day take a bus or train to Machu Picchu or better yet, hire a car and driver/guide for the approx 1 hour trip.

  4. Not really, though many port taxis are cheats. Just walk down the block away from the congregated cars and hail a street cab. Meters are mandatory in the city limits. Taxis in BA are about 1/3 the price of taxis in NYC. The port is not remote from the best parts of the city. Puerto Madero and Recoleta rides would cost anywhere from $5-10 max. Palermo might be as high as $12 (480 pesos). Uber is also an option though Uber drivers would probably have difficulty picking up at the port - the taxi drivers (whose medallions have now lost much of the value they paid before Uber came to town) wo
