How to save money in Buenos Aires

  • Buenos Aires is certainly among the most expensive Latin America cities and when I visited I had to be quite creative so as not to exhaust my cash.

Hit the museum, parks, and streets

  • Entry to most museums in the city is free or discounted which was really helpful. Some of the museums with free entry always include
  1. Museo Nacional de Bellas artes
  2. Museo historico nacional
  3. Recoleta cemetery.
  • There are also a number of parks within town where I found free salsa and yoga classes.
  • Streets here are lined with art and all I had to do was walk around town to see the various art collections as opposed to going to an art exhibition, tickets are very expensive.

Take the colectivos

  • These were the cheapest buses in town with each ride being half a dollar. I could make quite a number of trips around town and spend less than $5 on transport. Good thing is that they move all across town.

La Glorieta de Belgrano

  • Here I watched the tango for free. Tango sessions start at 8 pm on Saturday and Sundays. It's free and everyone is invited! Though there are quite a number of places where you can see the tango, if you're a tourist you'll be overcharged.
