Hi Fernanda!there´s a lot of things to do in Buenos Aires, but I recommend you to visit Downtown where is the Obelisk, the govermment house Casa Rosada, Caminito place in la Boca neighborhood with many colourful houses, Palermo Hollywood a place with many fashion stores and bars with live music.. metro is not open all the night, only to midnight hours, you can try a taxi or a bus for travellers, Buenos Aires is not cold now, it´s about 27 degrees

Fernanda! Desde o aeroporto tens que te tomar um táxi se ou se, se já reservaste hotel, é mas comodo, um táxi hasta o centro da cidade custa aproximadamente 70 pesos, tens que te tomar um rádio táxi e não algum que este parado na porta, é mas seguro.Quanto à noite, todas as sextas-feiras saio com meus amigos e amigas asi que, se queres, aponta minha direccion de mail e és bem-vinda a acompanhar-nos! .

Bom día, Fernanda!! Meu nome é Santiago. I only speak a little of Portuguese. Voçé tem que conhecer o centro da cidade. There are lots of things to do here, for example having walks in Downtown, begining from San Martín Square. Then you may go to `9 de Julio´Ave. There is the Colon Theatre. A few blocks away from there is located the Obelisk. Then you should go to `Puerto Madero´ and see the most expensive buildings in the whole city. Otherwise you should go to San Telmo and take a look - why not buy?- beautiful handicrafts and antiques. If you are wondering whether to know about Tango History you can´t miss `Caminito´ in `La Boca´ neighborhood.
There are other places to visit in the city surroundings, like `El Tigre´ where you may have `catamaran´ rides and visit `Puerto de frutos´. Travelling by `Tren de la Costa´ is a nice way to get there because of its nice trip passing trhough the most beautiful comunities in Buenos Aires. I could take you any museum you want and more...take a look to my services and then you tell me. If you want I could pick you up at the airport, just contact me.
I hope I´d been helpful to you.
Just to clarify , I see from your question that you assume that there will be public transportation (the metro) from the airport to the city, and that is not the case in Buenos Aires. You will need to hire a cab, and I recommend you do that before you arrive, you can arrange it with your travel agency. If you can't do that, my next recommendation would be to hire the taxi in a reputable company the moment you exit customs. I like to use a service called "Manuel Tienda Leon", which should be apparent once you leave customs through the automatic doors. I strongly advice against going to the street and hailing a cab there. Also, do not trust people that will tell you they own a cab and will drive you for a fee. If you want to play it safe, hire it in a reputable company. Always be careful in this city, it is very nice, but has all the dangers a big city can have and they are very real.

Enjoy your stay!

Oi Fernanda! Como vai? Meu nome é Nélida. Vc pode visitar o centro da cidade, conhecida como "Microcentro" (Downtown). Alí aconteció a maior parte da história do país. Tb tem q visitar os bairros de La Boca e San Telmo. No primeiro tem muitas atividades e no segundo pode conhecer a parte antiga da cidade.
Se vc gosta dos museus pode visitar o "Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes", o Museo da Cidade, o MALBA e o "Museo de Arte Decorativo".
About discos (and this I say it in english because I don't remember right know how to right it in portuguesse) one of the finest is Esperanto. Fridays, I recommend GOA and Saturdays, Club 947. If you want to go with me to Club 947, please, let me know! ;)
The metro is not open all night.
Agora faz calor!!! mas sempre é bom ter algum casaco. ;)
beijos!!!

Hello Fernanda, depending of the hour you arrive, if it is before 2330hs you can catch "manuel tienda leon" bus, that drops u in Retiro (downtown) i am not sure how much, but it s around 30 pesos, otherwise, i recomend u to take a taxi , its safer for the time you arrive, and it is around 70 pesos. Dont worry about the language, here "portuñol" is pretty much understandable! good luck on your trip , i am sure u´d love bs as!
ps: the weather is nice now, around 20-26 ªC.
Buenos Aires is sometimes called the Paris of South America. The architecture reminds one of the Hausmann 19th century designs. Lots of great districts to shop, eat or hang around. This is a country that loves beef, but Buenos Aires is also a port and you can find some wonderful seafood. San Telmo has a huge flea market on weekends. Tango was born there... So was my wife. What else is there to say?
