You can go around exploring European architecture while allowing your children to enjoy the hospitality of Porteños in various playrooms, kid-friendly hotels, and even cafes for children. 

However, before we go through the city's top family-friendly destinations, let us get a quick review on the basics of traveling safely in Buenos Aires with your family, beginning with finding family taxis with car seats. 

 

Where to find family taxis with car seats in Buenos Aires

The Ministro Pistarini International Airport Ezeiza (EZE) is the only airport known to accept international flights in Buenos Aires. 

The moment you set foot in the airport, you’ll want to find a taxi as the Buenos Aires city center is still 31 kilometers away. 

If you are traveling as a family, you will most likely have luggage, backpacks, and children with you, so a family taxi service with car seats and boosters for baby infants is the ideal solution for you. 

Regardless of the airline you choose, you will always land at Terminal A. After passing through passport control and claiming your bags, prepare the address of your hotel, Air BnB, or any place of stay, then get an airport taxi with car seats to drive you to downtown Buenos Aires. The trip takes around 30 to 50 minutes, depending on the traffic. 

You can opt to take a public bus from the airport to Buenos Aires. This is an affordable and convenient way to begin exploring the city as you only need to pay about a dollar. However, the hassle that comes with carrying all your bags and the kids can be overwhelming.

If budget is not a problem, you and your family can travel comfortably by arranging for a private taxi with car seats or airport transportation with car and booster seats for baby infants.

You can look for a taxi outside the arrival hall. However, some taxi drivers may choose not to use their meters and overcharge you on top of service expenses. The taxi ride should only cost around $25 to $30.

There are shuttle buses available for only $12, but the stops are limited. You also have to research which shuttle buses can get you to the stop nearest to your desired location. 

You can also look for an Uber. However, Uber is not recognized as a legitimate taxi business in Argentina as it operates without any official authorization from the Ministry of Transportation. 

So the best way to travel comfortably and hassle-free around Buenos Aires is to book a child-friendly taxi with car seats from legal taxi companies like Taxi Bambino.
