Apart from that, there are always telephone cabins (locutorios) at hand, costing 20 or 25 cents a call, depending on the company. For international calls, there are special offers according to the time and zone. In addition to Cyber cafes, which can be found all around the city, locutorios now offer Internet service as well.
Cell phone rental
Different companies offer the rental service of cell phones for an average insurance of US$ 200 plus the cost of the air minute.
When calling from abroad, it is necessary to dial 54 (Argentina) and 11 (Buenos Aires) before dialing. Note that from cell-phones you need to dial 9 before the city code (so the code is 911).
When to visit
The best time is spring, between September and December, even though this last month gets uncomfortably hot. It is considered the high-season period, due to the mild weather, as well as the organization of most festivals, conferences and cultural events at this time.
On account of the great demand, it is very hard to get accommodation during such season. The same happens in July during Argentine winter holidays, when Buenos Aires receives a great amount of tourists from the provinces. Also, during the Holy Week, when several large groups from the provinces and neighboring countries come to visit, it is hard to find accommodation available.
