The Buenos Aires port is the headquarters for all ports and customs authorities within the area. It is divided into six terminals and all of them are operated by private companies. It works all year round as a cargo port. Containers are to be seen upon arrival and throughout the port area. í
Due to this situation, buses are not allowed ship-side, due to safety reasons. The parking space that belongs to the Cruise Terminal holds up to 7 buses, so most tour & transfer buses are parked outside the terminal, by the sidewalk.
The Buenos Aires port is located about 2 kilometers from downtown. Although it seems close, it is not recommended to walk around the area, which is not very populated. We strongly recommend shuttle buses, or taxis. Taxis are available 24/7 at the terminal.
The Buenos Aires port has a yacht berth also, called "Puerto Madero" located in the heart of the city.
Buenos Aires Cruise Terminal Information: The Cruise Terminal in Buenos Aires, called Terminal de Cruceros Benito Quinquela Martn, is located in TRP Section and handled by DP World.
As Buenos Aires is a cargo port, a shuttle bus service connects the Cruise Terminal with the gangways of the ships at all times. For disembarkation, luggage is transported by trucks and collected by guests at the Buenos Aires Terminal.
The luggage area can hold 8,000 pieces approx. It has closed parking area for 7 coaches and parking at the sidewalk for 15 coaches approx. Taxis are always available and have fixed rates to both domestic and international airports. Progressive debark is not recommended, but it is allowed.
For embarkation there is a waiting area for around 2,000 passengers with some souvenirs shops and cafeteria, 5 security scanners, 50 counters for check-in, 30 counters for immigration and a holding area after immigrations for passport collection.
Check-in and immigrations are located on the first floor. There are elevators, escalators and stairs available.
At the Buenos Aires Terminal, in transit passengers and anyone who is not embarking, is not allowed to be inside the pre check-in area. In transit passengers will walk through a separate path and through a different security scanner. The distance between the shuttle bus station and the tour buses loading area is around 300mts.
There is a bar and some shops available but there is not a waiting or sitting area for in transit guests at the Terminal. Although in some cases buses for shore excursions might be allowed to enter ship-side, in all cases, the tour buses return to the Cruise Terminal.

Legendary and classy Tortoni is just one of many notable cafes officially listed in town, where visitors can experience a true highlight in porteo lifestyle: to seat down for coffee and indulge in good conversation. Moreover, in recent years Buenos Aires has turned into a culinary hotspot: a new generation of ethnic restaurants (Peruvian, Vietnamese, Indian, Japanese and what not), has joined in the traditional Spanish and Italian eateries and the parrillas (grills) with world famous Argentine meat.
