By this point, it's likely that you've already arranged your flight to Argentina. However, if you haven't, here's some useful information:
Airports in Buenos Aires: Buenos Aires boasts two primary international airports: Aeroparque (AEP) and Ezeiza (EZE).
- If you're coming from North America, you'll probably land at Ministro Pistarini Airport, widely recognized as Ezeiza International Airport. This airport is the primary arrival point for international flights from around the world.
- Aeroparque, on the other hand, is predominantly used for domestic and regional flights.
- Ezeiza International Airport (EZE) is located in Buenos Aires province. It's an approximately 35-40 minute drive (traffic-dependent) on a highway to reach Palermo, Buenos Aires Capital Federal. Palermo is often referred to as Capital, the city, or CABA.
Airport to Studio Apartment Transportation: Shuttles will be arranged to transport you from Ezeiza International Airport to your studio apartment in San Telmo. If you selected this option, a driver will be easily identifiable with a "NOMA COLLECTIVE" sign.
Alternative Transportation: In case you cannot make use of the shuttle, don't worry; arranging a "Remis" (interprovincial taxi) is simple and convenient. These taxis are available 24/7. As you exit the airport, approach the Remis Stands (there are several companies). Let them know you're heading to San Telmo and pay using a credit or debit card. The cost is around $14,000ARS (approximately USD 35).
You also have the option to book an Uber from the waiting area outside McDonald's at the airport. Ezeiza Airport provides open Wi-Fi for your convenience. A small detail to note with Uber is that drivers often prefer cash payments, and they may cancel your trip if you opt to pay with a credit card.
If you've chosen to make your own way, please proceed to the studio apartment's reception area and check in as you would during a standard apartment rental.
After you've comfortably settled into your studio apartment, we will host a Welcome/Kick-off Ceremony. During this event, we'll provide you with an orientation, walk you through the program, and give you a tour of the premises. This gathering is also an excellent chance to connect with fellow members of the Noma community.
The best time to visit Buenos Aires is from April-June (fall) or from September-December (spring). These sweet shoulder seasons usher in mild temperatures, thin crowds, and colorful foliage. Stepping out of the incredibly hot summer months January and February, April will still be warm enough for shorts and t-shirt kind of dressing, but with a pleasant breeze. Bring summer clothes as well as light layers for the evening.
Buenos Aires is a diverse city, there’s a lot of freedom on streetwear style, it's a very instinctive/feel free style. Porteños (people from the city) have a very distinct and idiosyncratic sense of fashion. Young porteños tend to dress casually.
Tip: Wear the same clothes you would wear in your own city.
- Light Jacket
- Comfortable Walking shoes
- Clothing and shoes that you wouldn’t mind getting dirty
- Day backpack
- Bottle for water
- Small purse/handbag for city adventures
- Packing List
Important - all guest communication is on slack.
