It is not recommended to visit Buenos Aires during the peak season (summer) from January to February, given that it is characterized by high temperatures and a higher inflow of tourists. On the other end, winter isn't usually magnanimous with visitors, who normally experience cold and rainy days lasting from June to August. Some interesting events throughout the year are: February: Carnaval Porteño March: Opening of Opera and Ballet season April: International Horse Riding Exhibition; Buenos Aires Book Fair May: May Revolution Day (25th); International Decorative Art Fair July 9: Independence Day August: Fashion Week; Tango Festival and World Championship November: Gay Pride; International Buenos Aires Jazz Festival; Creamfields

Public Transport

Public Transport in Buenos Aires is efficient and affordable and by far the best way to get around. There are two types of buses (regular 'colectivos' and Metrobus), as well as Latin America's oldest subway system, or 'Subte'. All public transport in the city is paid using the rechargeable SUBE card, which can be purchased at post offices and corner shops. Bus stops are ubiquitous. Be sure to stand in line at the bus stop, as they are strictly respected. Tell the driver where you're going and he'll let you know how much the fare is, as it varies depending on how far you are traveling. Colectivos run 24 hours, though less frequently at night. Metrobuses have dedicated lanes along major roads to speed across the city, and many stations have free WiFi. The Subte is clean, reliable and both the fastest and cheapest way to get around. Trains run often, every 3-10 minutes, Mon-Fri 5am-10:30pm, Sun 8am-10pm. Several lines run parallel East to West, while line C crosses them going North to South.
