I'm now booked at the host hotel. What options do you suggest for transportation to the hotel from EZE? The hotel offers a private care for AR$800 which is only ~$18.

Thatís pretty good at todayís exchange rate because an Uber is between 650 and 800 depending on the time of the day and a Remis from the airport is much higher than Manuel Tienda Leon bus plus transfer to your hotel itís 485 ARS As of today. Iím at the AMEX Centurion lounge right now is way better these days and the star alliance lounge. Because of the volatility the peso prices may change come September . Bear in mind the city is very slow people are really hungry for US dollars most of the places that I typically go are kind of slow, taxis are roaming the streets looking for fares And itís a very difficult time for the locals things are really depressed. Donít pay a lot of money for things youíll just be taken advantage of A $75 lunch or dinner is way out of the question no matter where you go

It's looking like I'll be able to stay over to Monday this year. I just need to make plane and hotel reservations, but I'm certainly planning to do COW DO (and WINE DO from the right side of the Andes) once again.

Hello! I just noticed this thread and this ďdoĒ has definitely piqued my interest. Iíve only attended one ďdoĒ in YYZ and would love a chance to meet more FTers - what better way to do so than enjoying cow and wine! Plus, Iíve never been to EZE!

i canít quite commit yet as my calendar for July and August for work is still not firm. But Iíll definitely start researching flights etc. Is there a deadline you need commitment by?

My flights are booked and it's beyond the 24 hour free cancellation period, so this is definitive: I arrive on Tuesday August 27th and depart on Monday September 2nd, of course on DL through ATL.

As usual I plan to stay at the Hyatt, although my suite there is not yet confirmed, so there's a slight chance I could decamp to the boutique hotel for the DO days and nights.

I definitely want to sign up for both wine tastings and all of the dinners. Lunches are to be determined as it can be too much food for me.

As customary, this DO happens over the US Labor Day Weekend - please come back to this thread to learn about this event, including program updates and news. This DO is a gathering of FTers (and non-FTers also welcome) that come together to enjoy Beef & Malbec, and all the other nice & interesting things that Buenos Aires has to offer. From Tango to Polo, Leather, Soccer and one of the Wonders of the World, Buenos Aires is just the welcome gateway to a variety of programs & possibilities....

This DO is one of the longest running yearly events of all FlyerTalk, I think that its tradition is only second to the Australia Do... Im sure that I can be corrected in case Im mistaken, but regardless, this DO is for sure one of the top DO's of these boards in terms of "years of service", and Im very happy & proud to be able to remain a part of this event that brings folks to my hometown, Buenos Aires.

After a great experience last year, we are again naming the 1828 Smart Hotel as the "official" (or suggested) Hotel for this Do. Needless to say, folks are encouraged to stay anywhere they want, and we do of course understand folks have their hotel points to collect, but for those that want a small luxury non-chain hotel at a great value, I would suggest you consider looking into this property.

They are offering a FlyerTalk Special Corporate Rate, please contact the hotel directly and mention the "FlyerTalk Corporate Rate", and they will provide details. All Bookings are to be made directly with the Hotel and handled by each interested guest.

See the hotel website here: 1828 Smart Hotel

Please post your interest in this do and keep us updated as you book your tickets, hotel & other activities !!!!

Cheers from EZE,
Alex / Gaucho100K
You can add me to the list of confirmed flights and hotel!
