Cruises from Buenos Aires

Cruises from Buenos Aires

The Port of Buenos Aires is considered one of the best ports in South America in terms of infrastructure and cargo capacity.

The new Benito Quinquela Martín passenger terminal has been a major revival of the cruise industry in the Argentine capital, as it can accommodate all types of ships.

The cruise terminal is located 2.5 miles (4 kilometres) from the city centre, close to Jorge Newbery Airport and about 21 miles (35 kilometres) from Ezeiza International Airport. From the terminal, you can get to the centre of Buenos Aires by bus, taxi, or by booking a private transfer. The latter is the most advisable option.

The best cruises from Buenos Aires are the ones that take visitors to the Chilean cities of Santiago or Valparaíso. These cruises cross Cape Horn, the Strait of Magellan or even reach Antarctica. On the way, they visit ports such as Montevideo, Punta del Este, Puerto Madryn, Ushuaia and Punta Arenas.

There are also routes that visit the beautiful beaches of neighbouring Brazil and make their way to Rio de Janeiro, Buzios or Santos. They also stop at lesser-visited destinations such as Ilha Grande, Parati or Porto Belo.

When should I travel?

Cruises from Buenos Aires take place in the spring and summer seasons in the Southern Hemisphere, especially between November and April. This is the best time of the year to visit the ports of Patagonia and Tierra del Fuego.

When should I book?

If you’d like to find the best price for a cruise from Buenos Aires, we recommend booking as far in advance as possible, especially if you’re travelling in a group or as a family as there are fewer cabins of this type. You should also bear in mind that the cruise season only lasts only a few months, so there’s reduced availability.
