Hahah true story they are a bit overpriced !
I'like to go and hang around
Yeah public library its really cool too!
Glad you enjoyed it !

Have an awesome day !

the right way is they use blue dollar for the exchange rate. The offcial /bank rate does not apply for anything. So paying pesos cash at blue rate or pay with credit card at 10% less than blue rate.

What part of town? In Hollywood, Huerta offers a free test day, and there is a Meetup group at Urban Station Wednesday afternoons you can join for a couple thousand. In Palermo, Selina is pretty active, and IndaWork has a really nice space.

Hello everyone! I'm traveling next week to Buenos Aires and would love to have some fun people to meet when I arrive. If anyone has good recommendations for gyms, co-work spaces, and overall fun things to do please reach out!
sjnarins 18d
Does anyone have experience storing luggage in buenos aires? or would be able to hide my single small suitcase somewhere in their apartment for about a month or so? :-)
Hey cjstbjwemo if you donโ€™t have a better option there is no problem storing you suitcase in my apartment :). If Iโ€™m not at home my girlfriend is so you can leave it and take it when you want.
Hi! Iโ€™m coming to Buenos Aires in December and I would like maybe to share an apartment with another digital nomad from the 3rd of December to the 30th of December in Palermo district and maybe extend another week. Tell me if youโ€™re interested! ๐Ÿ˜Ž

Hi Inthor! I want to travel in Dec and Argentina seems a sound option :) Why this district is it like the best or safest one?
steve7 17d
Hi all! Considering beautiful Argentina to live nomad in Dec :) but now I'am wondering if the upcoming election something that could create upheaval in the city. What's your take on that?
Itโ€™s just because I will be working at the ACO coworking space near there. Itโ€™s the first time Iโ€™m coming to BA
Any nice coliving space near Palermo or Almagro I could join in December? raised_handsskin-tone-2
I dont think so.. but if that worries you i would suggest avoding Buenos Aires, im Argentine and for a couple extra bucks you could go to Bariloche and experience the beuty of Patagonia

Hey, I'm in Buenos Aires in a few weeks - anyone know a good boxing gym to join? Not a joint that upsells nomads though, a proper boxing gym

jonyale 14d
Thinking of going in January. Where do you find housing? Canโ€™t find anything under $1000. Guessing thatโ€™s bc itโ€™s airbnb and using official exchange? Or is bariloche not affordable?

any of you managed to rent something through mercadolibre as a foreigner? They make it very difficult to make an account without an argentinan phone number
if anyone could let me use their phone number for verification that would be very helpful ๐Ÿ™
Bariloche its a 20,25% more expensive than buenos aires. if you are going to argentina for the culture go to buenos aires but if you go for the nature.. that 20,25% its worth it!
another option is going to El Bolson , a town 2 hours from bariloche that its muuuuch cheaper but if you are going to be working you should make sure the place you'll rent has acceptable internet because its a little town, if you want further details let me know !
I gave up and just booked through AirBnB
regiani 14d
buy a ~400 pesos sim card in any of these small corner shops, you donโ€™t need to activate it to receive SMS, just insert and the local phone number works for registrations. Activating it is more annoying but you do that to get 4G connectivity/calls
yeah once Iโ€™m there Iโ€™ll probably do that, just for booking an apartment in advance it was a bit annoying
Fin ding an apartment can be a pain. More than 50% of the listings on Mercado Libre and other rental sites arenโ€™t actually available in my experience.
Sometimes using Airbnb is the best option. Iโ€™m leaving an apartment right now that was new and I had health issues for over a month living there. Turned out it had mold problems. It was an absolute nightmare. Iโ€™m pretty sure the landlord knew beforehand. Found it in one of the local whatsapp groups. I think something like this is less likely to happen on Airbnb.
yeah I booked a really nice airbnb which looks quite new and has very good reviews thus far so I think it should be good
mikegwhit 14d
i wound up looking at using twilio for number forwarding lol.. but yeah the sim card is simpler
Anyone knows a good co-working in Palermo? At area tres they require minimum 3 months
We could share a nice apartment the 3 of us. What do you think?
would have been cool but I just paid for a studio on airbnb unfortunately
arielito 14d
Huerta co work, la maquinita, those say require membership,, for daily use you got urban Station
rm 14d
fyi the exchange rate issue doesn't really apply to Airbnbs in Argentina. Or short-term rentals in general.
Everyone who's listing their properties on Airbnb has some kind of arrangement (foreign account) and gets paid in USD.
The short-term rental market mostly caters to foreigners. If you rent 'direct' in Argentina, expect to pay similar prices as you'd in Airbnb. Often even higher.
The longer term you rent, the better deals you can find. If you rent 6+ months it gets significantly cheaper
rm 14d
If you look for flats in other websites (Zonaprop and such) you'll find lots of listings for attractive prices. But rest assured, those are long term rental prices.
If you're lucky you'll manage to undercut Airbnb by a few hundred dollars, not by a significant amount. And that's by going through a lot of listings and making a lot of calls, or getting a tip from someone.
If you're staying for less than 3 months in Argentina, Airbnb is the best and most convenient option
rm 14d
Airbnb charges a fee but the realtors that manage apartments charge a fee as well. Their fee is often a % of the total contract, with a minimum amount
You might stumble upon a $800 apt ("huh, better than Airbnb") only to find out the realtor charges a $300 fee
Not much difference in the end
jonyale 13d
Thanks U0U13JV6K. is this your experience throughout the entire country or just in a few places like Buenos Aires?
rm 13d
Just Buenos Aires
I imagine it's similar in bigger cities. Don't know about smaller ones

Centro Cultural Recoleta has free coworking too
fun finding. we visited ba in september 2022. we had a list of airbnb rentals for a month. theyโ€™re all exorbitantly higher. one of them was about $2,200 for that time for our family. we were interested in visiting again and looked at the cost of the same flat for a month. it was $10,500. others were double or triple what they were.
๐Ÿ›ฌ hsvykmcpkiwa just arrived in ๐Ÿ’ƒ Buenos Aires, #argentina
jonyale 12d
This is usd. Is that the currency you were using?
our list was airbnbs suitable โ€œfor our family.โ€ they are all at least 2x times more than what they were a year ago. Add some people to that filter, entire place, a washer, wifi, and 2+ bedrooms and youโ€™ll see. certain areas also get pretty loud, so we try not to stay on those blocks in soho. while itโ€™s overall fine, we also donโ€™t stay in palermo hollywood because walking over that Av Juanโ€ฆ at night can be sketch/dangerous (it can also be hard to find a cab) and our fave restaurants are in soho. if you walk over to cordoba to cross, itโ€™s much better but can be out of the way.
the general โ€œmonthโ€ filter also isnโ€™t something thatโ€™s really accurate for those with specific dates.

Has anyone used any of the services like Tienda Miami to ship items to Argentina? Wondering how it compares to Grabr.

Presidential elections this Sunday, what to expect?
Cant buy alchohol today, maybe in little markets you still can.
Tomorrow everything is closed and a lot of people in the steets but anyone will know the winner until monday so it wont be any social problem i guess

monday is holiday so if there is any social problem it will happen on monday
gehwarburpczrsayf last election in October not everything was closed and the results were available in the evening at 10 pm. There will be alot of people in the streets tomorrow? Where?
Yeah, at 10pm the sunday is basically over :rolling_on_the_floor_laughing:
i lived basically my whole life in the surrondings of the city and everything was closed, maybe within the city you can find a couple of stores, but its not a normal sunday that is what i meant.

there will be people in the streets because everyone has to vote , i dont mean like a manifestation, just an active movement day .
๐Ÿ›ฌ vmjlkqdoixm just arrived in Puerto Iguazรบ, #argentina
Which area? If itโ€™s in palermo hollywood or soho I might be interested ๐Ÿค™
It is in Chacarita on the edge of Palermo Hollywood, maybe 3 blocks from edge of Palermo closer to the famous cemetery
boughgruzyhkejbab perhaps in the past everything was closed, but in the city it looked like little was closed. On a walk today I saw Farmacity, kioskos, ice cream shops, restaurants, Starbucks, Dia and barbers all open.

On Saturday I bought plane tickets online with MasterCard. I just realised that the transaction is marked as completed and the exchange rate is official, not Blue Dollar rate ๐Ÿ˜ฌ Is there a chance it still will be adjusted/refunded? Previously I've been a phisical Visa card and each time transaction went from "pending" to "completed" the exchange rate was adjusted to Blue Dollar rate (or simialr).
for Mastercard, I was get refunded a day or two after it posted. It was not an adjustment to the original charge, but a second transaction as a refund.
blaise 8d
Oh, ok, thank you for the info. So there's still a hope ๐Ÿ˜… The tickets were pretty pricey even at Blue Dollar rate, so regular rate would be a disaster ๐Ÿ™ˆ
Donโ€™t panic if it takes longer, it took more than a week for me a couple of times

looking on airbnb surprised how it's not that comparitively cheap (even before election). Hard to find a simple studio in Bariloche for less than $1000 during summer
esmhogcbd If you are able to find housing directly through locals instead of on AirBnB you will find it more cost effective or message the hosts and ask to negotiate and a lot of them will be open to it
Probably but the government exchange rate is a lie that we benefitted from. If the Argentineโ€™s are able to have a better future, then Iโ€™m all for it.
the government exchange rate is a lie that we have been getting taken advantage from... it costs more dollars to buy things at the official government rate than the blue market rate which is more reflective of true supply and demand
jayemar 7d
I'm looking at being there at that time and could definitely be interested if you could PM me the details
wyjhehhuk What is the best way of going about finding housing other than through AirBnB?
