As of March 20, 2020 and by Decree 297/20, the entire country entered a period of social,

preventive and obligatory isolation.

What does this mean?

That you cannot leave your home except to provide yourself with essential items, such as food,

cleaning supplies and medicines.

If you do not comply with these rules, you are breaking the law.

If you have traveled to a country where the virus is spreading or have been in contact with

someone who tested positive, you must stay in isolation for 14 days.

If you have any of the symptoms, call free of charge at 107.

Buenos Aires by bike
Discover the city in a sustainable way on two wheels.
Bicycles have become a more and more frequent sight in the Buenos Aires, especially in since the city has introduced a network of bike lanes and a completely free public bicycle system available to residents and visitors alike. The city now has more than 200km of cycle lanes covering 30 neighbourhoods and more than 3,000 bicycles available through the city bike-share scheme, known as BA Ecobici.
To start using the city’s bike-share system, simply download the app BA Ecobici por Tembici for iOS or Android. Here are a few pointers:
  • The user must be aged over 18, and you’ll need your passport and credit card handy to register and prove your identity.
  • To take a bike from a station, open the app, choose the station on the map and click “DESBLOQUEAR” (UNBLOCK). You’ll be given a code that you need to key in on the number pad next to the bike you want to remove.
  • The maximum time permitted to use a bike is one hour on weekdays and two hours on Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays. Keep an eye on the time, because if you go over your access to the system will be blocked for two days.
  • If you want to use the service for longer than the time permitted, simply return your bike at any station, wait five minutes, and take another one.
  • Have a good ride!

Where to go?

There are tons of options but here are some of the best places to explore by bike:

In the neighbourhood of Puerto Madero, the 350-hectare Costanera Sur Ecological Reserve is one of the biggest urban nature reserves in the world. We recommend exploring its trails and connecting to nature to appreciate the native flora and fauna and to rest a while with a view of the Río de la Plata.
