My boyfriend and I are going to Buenos Aires for three weeks starting November 19. We've got the plane tickets, now we need a place to live! I was thinking we'd want to rent a 1-bedroom apartment rather than stay in a hotel. Neither of us speaks much Spanish--I can sort of get by, but I wouldn't feel comfortable making financial arrangements in Spanish. MeFites, have you done this before? Please advise me!
I found this relevant previous question
from 2007. It looks really useful, but I wanted to post this question in case anything important has changed in the last five years.
- Should I make arrangements now or wait till it's closer to our flight date?
- We could rent an apartment from an agency, or supposedly we can rent an unmanaged apartment from an actual person but I don't know how to find that. Can you recommend an agency? Anything I should watch out for? I assume we'd have to rent a place sight unseen and I'm kind of nervous about that.
