March is the end of Summer and beginning of Fall with many beautiful sunny days. March is characterized by falling daily high temperatures, with daily highs decreasing from 26°C to 23°C over the course of the month, exceeding 29°C or dropping below 20°C only one day in ten.
Buenos Aires is Argentina’s international gateway and easily accessible from North America, Europe, and Australasia, as well as other capital cities in South America. The main airport for international flights is the Ministro Pistarini International Airport, also known as Ezeiza International Airport, about 35 km from Buenos Aires city. Many flights to and from neighbouring countries also use the smaller but sometimes more convenient Aeroparque Jorge Newbery airport, near downtown Buenos Aires. To travel downtown you can book an Airport transfer, take a bus or a taxi.
