Ohio Univeristy in Argentina Arrival and Departure Information

Arrival information

One group transfer from the Buenos Aires International Airport (Aeropuerto Internacional de Ezeiza “Ministro Pistarini”) to Milhouse Hostel in the Recoleta section of central Buenos Aires will be arranged for the morning of Saturday, February 28, 2015.

A private coach or shuttle will meet your group at the airport at approximately 11AM.

Your bags may decide to take a later flight (don’t panic). If the airline loses your luggage you must file a report with the airline while you are still in the baggage area. It is much more difficult to file this report once you’ve left the baggage claim area.

It is recommended that you pack a change of clothes and some small toiletries (toothbrush, toothpaste, soap, etc….) in your carry-on in the event that your bags arrive late.

Getting to Milhouse Hostel in Buenos Aires independently:

Navigating between Buenos Aires’ airport and city centre is nothing to be intimidated by! Furthermore, Argentines are a very hospitable people. If for any reason you miss the group transfer, please let your onsite staff know you will be making your way to the hotel independently, and by which route you intend to travel, so we can estimate your time of arrival.

A taxi from the Buenos Aires airport to Milhouse Hostel will cost about $20-$25 (170-220 Argentine Pesos) one-way and there will be plenty available outside of baggage claim when you have your belongings and are ready to travel into the city. Be sure that the driver turns on the meter when you depart, or if the taxi does not have a meter, agree on a fare prior to leaving, otherwise you may be overcharged. The journey can take anywhere from 30 minutes to one hour depending on traffic. This option, while not the least expensive, is certainly the most convenient if you find yourself having to navigate from door-to-door independent of the group.
