help with logistics

my one daughter cannot leave for Argentina with the rest of us - she will be arriving on Dec. 22nd on United. She has 3 hours to make it through customs, get her suitcase and take a taxi to the other airport in Buenos Aires for a flight to Iguassu-scheduled for that day at 12:55. Does this sound feasible or should we change our reservations to Iguassu and stay in Buenos Aires one more day.
I really need help figuring this out. I don't mind getting her a driver to take her from one airport to the next but I'm worried about her making the connection. Any thoughts anyone?

I've conencted from international to domestic flights with the change of airports in Buenos Aires, and I'd say that might be pushing it. I've done it in less than three hours but I've also had it take more than three. Much depends on the United flight arriving on time and on traffic. (EZE is a long way from the city.) I'd say if you want complete peace of mind about it, stay in BA the extra day.

It depends on what time and day of the week she arrives. It can take 1.5 to 2 hours in peak hour just to get from Ezeiza (Intl.) to Aeroparque (domestic) not to mention Argentina's hopeless and frustrating immigration queues. We flew into BA twice from Australia & Lima and each time the wait was horrendous!

You don't mention where in the US she will be flying from. It there is a chance of snow and the plane being deiced, delayed ( or even canceled) there could be a problem. Why not remove the stress and stay the extra day in BA. I plan to arrive in BA from NJ in late January and fly the next day to Iguazu. I'm taking no chances!!

if she arrives in the early flights at Ezeiza (8-8:30-9) she will have time to go to the other (i have done it many times) but if it is possible try to change the iguazu for the 1:30 to be on the safe side.

A MUCH BETTER IDEA IS TO GET THE FLIGHT LEAVING FROM EZEIZA AIRPORT INSTEAD OF AEROPARQUE. EZE- IGUAZU

FOR THE RETURN GET THE IGUAZU -AEPARQUE.
TICKET.

THAT WOULD BE THE SAFER WAY FOR YOUR DAUGHTER AND YOU WILL FEEL BETTER TOO.
