TRANSPORTATION
Transportation in Argentina is mainly based on a complex network, crossed by long-distance buses and cargo trucks. The country also has several national and international airports. The importance of the long-distance train is less today, although in the past it was widely used. The river transport is used mainly for cargo.
Within urban areas, the main transport system is bus or collective; Bus lines transport a million people every day in the largest cities and their metropolitan areas. Buenos Aires has one subway, the only one in the country, and Greater Buenos Aires has a suburban train system.
SOCIAL PROGRAM
There is a social program in all our cities. Because the periods vary and the cities are in different parts of the country, the social program is different in each city. We will carry out different activities that generally include trips to get to know the surrounding areas, barbecues, an international food and drink party, tourist visits, outings, among others. There are usually many local students participating in it. Our social program is warm, well organized and fun.
