I searched this thread and couldn't find any info about luggage storage / lockers in EZE. Does anybody have any info?
I'll be in BA, and my folks will be joining mid-trip. They're planning to meet us in IGR, so it doesn't make a ton of sense for them to schlep into BA to drop off their bags and then back to AEP/EZE for a flight--best case would be a flight from EZE a couple/few hours after their ETA.
So, what are their options? Alternatively, is there a reputable luggage->hotel transfer service they could send their bags onward with? I suppose otherwise they could just pay extra for a checked bag to IGR and back, but I'd love to find them a way to avoid this.

Thanks!

My wife and I and our 5-month old baby are coming to Buenos Aires in late February... We arrive very early in the morning and the return flight is at midnight, so we basically have 10 days but 9 nights... Trying to figure out how to split up our trip between Buenos Aries and Uruguay. How many days should we spend in Buenos Aires as first time visitors with an infant? We do like to get out and sight see but also don't want to feel too rushed and will need to pace ourselves with a baby... And as far as Uruguay, we were going to take the ferry over to Colonia del Sacramento OR Montevideo OR both. For those who are familiar, is it worth going to Montevideo too, or is Colonia enough? here are 2 options i had in mind...

7 nights in BA, and 2 nights in Colonia...
6 nights in BA, 2 nights in Montevideo and 1 night in Colonia.

Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

A few hours in Colonia is enough and the drive from Colonia to Montevideo is boring. I would do Montevideo and Punta del Este

I travel to both cities frequently. Especially in light of a five-month-old, perhaps you would consider just staying in Buenos Aires. It will Be a more relaxed vacation. Remember there’s nap times changing’s etc. and your wife would probably be looking forward to some down time. While Montevideo is an interesting city, it’s not that easy to grasp at a first glance. Until you can figure out the different neighborhoods and what they offer I don’t see it being as conducive to a family vacation as Buenos Aires would be.
There’s so much to do in Buenos Aires your time will go by very quickly. Just a thought…

Skip Colonia.

If you do not want to spend the entire time i BA, which is a good idea, head to Punta by way of Montevideo for a few days of beach. You can rent a car and dries to Punta easily, or take a bus. Or, perhaps better, head from Montevideo to Jose Ignacio, less than an hour up the coast from Punta Beautiful area, wide open beaches, relaxing, child friendly. Take a look at some photos and stories. The area will not be crowded at that time. A number of small hotels to choose from.

Uruguay is more expensive than ARG, ARG is a bargain now.

Have fun.

Colonia a small town and is worth visiting if you just want to chill out. Some decent hotels there . You can see the whole town in one day.
