    SO NICE - I STAYED TWICE!

    by


    I love this place. In fact I stayed here twice. The great thing about this excellent hotel is that it is surrounded on 3 sides by the green heart of Buenos Aires. The Zoo, Botanical and Japanese Gardens are on your doorstep. The neighbourhood is upscale and quiet. Great restaurants, some nice bars, and several grocery stores are also a 2 minute walk. The main part of the city is a good 20 minute walk or a very short taxi ride away. The hotel itself is just perfect. Modern, clean, comfortable and all the amenities you could wish for. The staff can and will organise anything you need.

    My rooms were fantastic. Lovely beds, big TV’s, wonderful bathrooms and everything to hand. I always had a great night’s sleep here. My second room, near the top, was really cool. The TV was in the middle of the room and the whole layout was awesome. The bathrooms are a real treat with a full size bathtub.

    I highly recommend the Awwa Suites. I enjoyed my dips in the pool, reading a book poolside and being able to use the internet (wifi and computer) to catch –up before and after I went to Antarctica. This is a real winner.

Traveling to Buenos Aieres

by wildchicken

Hello,

I have been getting more and more excited by the fact that I will be visiting Buenos Aires late October for a month. I will be staying downtown in Monserrat y San Nicolás. Since I will be traveling down to Buenos Aires alone I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions of places to go to meet people and experience the nightlife. I plan to spend much of my time studying Spanish. Though my classes will not start until about five days after i get there.

Thank you,

John

Not sure of your age, but one place to start would be Marks, a haven for 20 somethings in Palermo SoHo El Salvador 4701, Palermo Soho, Buenos Aires
Phone: 11/4832-6244 No credit cards. Seems to attract many expats from all over and good food too. Opens around 10:30, closes at 8:30. Other places would be any of the bars around Plaza Serrano, (real name is Plazoleta Julio Cortazor but few people ever use it) lots of bars there that get busy every afternoon and stay that way through the evening. Close by is one of the trendiest places Mundo Bizarro Serrano 1222 Palermo still serving the best cocktails in town :).

Another good place to meet people and network is the restaurant/bar Milion, Parana 1048 (00 54 11 4815 9925). Good food, drinks and loud music, located in an old mansion. Has a large garden area in the back and tends to be packed mid week nights through the weekend.

For Sunday brunch head to Olsen Gorriti 5870, try to get a table on the terrace.

This should keep you busy and provide an good introduction to the city. Just remember the city begins very late, people begin going out for dinner around 10pm and the early clubs don't really start until 1 and the dance clubs around 3. So get your clock adjusted.

When you arrive, buy the "GUIA T" it's a small inexpensive map book of all the city streets and corresponding bus routes; it's invaluable, sold at most newstands. Also, buy "TIME OUT". If you not familiar with this magazine, it lists everything that a visitor would like to know. The local issues are sold in all the worlds' major cities. Make sure to get the English version - restaurants, bars, discos, museums etc. Look for it at newstands in the tourist areas- Santa Fe, Florida,Corrientes, Cordaba streets and avenues.

Don't ever take a taxi that doesn't have a telephone number listed on the door.
They're refered to as "radio taxis".
Familiarise yourself with the characteristics of the paper currency; there are
a lot of fake bills in circulation.
Be careful walking. A great many of the sidewalks and curbs are in horrible condition.
No moving vehicle will give you the right of way.
Don't even think of driving a car; leave your license home.

Are you sure that you're coming to Buenos Aires, Argentina? I just checked 2 different maps -
There is a street named San Nicholas that is VERY VERY far from downtown. Neither map lists a street called Monserrat. There is a neighborhood called Monserrat, but it is nowhere near San Nicholas. You had better find out exactly where you're staying? Did you send "where you're staying" money? OMG

San Nicolás is a barrio between Monserrat and Retiro. You can also check the cities tourism web site that is a very good source for information,

Travel Tips for Buenos Aires

Tree-Lined Streets

by Bwana_Brown

After our walk around the Botanical Gardens, we wanted to do some further exploring of the park-like Palermo district. Immediately east of the Gardens is the Buenos Aires Zoo, but we decided to bypass that in favour of the Japanese Gardens a bit further along and closer to the Rio de la Plata. While walking down Rep. de la India along one side of the fenced-off Zoo, we really enjoyed the relative quietness and leafy cover of the Platano trees on this hot 33 degC afternoon!

Inside the Zoo fence was another smaller fence to keep the people touring the Zoo back from it's perimeter. However, this did not stop entrepreneurs on the street from carrying out their business! With their small bicycle-driven drinks carts parked under the trees, the vendors would talk to the patrons of the Zoo through the two fences. Once the arrangements had been agreed to, long bamboo poles were used to retrieve the customer's money with the required refreshments then being passed back through the two fences via the pole! It seems the concession prices inside the Zoo were being undercut!

Mate

by MDC6

If anyone asks you to try mate, don't turn it down! It's a very popular tradition in Argentina (as well as Uruguay, southern Brazil, and Paraguay). It's a type of tea that comes from a tree grown throughout the Mesopotamia region of Argentina. The tea itself is called yerba mate, and it's placed in a container (sometimes a hollowed-out gourd) called a mate. You drink the tea through a straw, usually made of metal or bamboo, called a bombilla. There's a filter attached to the end so you don't drink any of the little leaves.

The cebador(a) is the person who prepares the mate. He/she will put the yerba in the mate and fill it with hot water from a thermos. It's then passed to another person, who drains the cup, and then gives it back to the cebador, who will then fill it up again and give it to the next person.

Some people say it's an acquired taste, some people just don't like it. I really like it, it has a refreshing taste to it. You can drink it with sugar if you don't like the bitterness, but I've heard that it's bad for your stomach (I also don't think it tastes that great).

Spas in Buenos Aires

by gabylandiva

How to choice a spa in Buenos Aires?

The number of spas is growing in Buenos Aires. After the 2002 crisis many clinics and aesthetic doctors were reconverted to medical spas. Today, there is a lot of high-class spas over the city, most of them in Recoleta, Palermo and Belgrano.

Beside the spas located into the large 5-star luxury hotels, there are several day spa or urban spa with good services and affordable prices.

One of my favourite places is Aloe-Spa Salute per Aloe. This is an urban spa located at the heart of Belgrano district in Buenos Aires. The distinctive element of this spa is that all treatments are performed using aloe vera leaves or cosmetics containing high proportion of aloe vera into the formula.

I visited the venue three times and experienced a swedish massage -with aloe massage oil-, an aloe facial and an aloe body scrub. I enjoyed too much the body treatment, because they cleansed my entire body with an aloe lotion, then exfoliation was made with an aloe moisturizing cream and organic brown sugar (green coffee is also an option). After that, the mask is prepared with volcanic Andean clay, honey and aloe juice. They also mix blueberries, açai or mangosteen as antioxidants.

When the mask has worked and gets dry, the therapist remove it with aloe juice, and use and aloe vera moisturizing gelly to wrap all the body. Finally a smooth massage is applied.

It is a unique experience because you may feel the aloe products into the body. I highly recommend this spa treatment.

THE place to shop til you drop!

by bruingirl about Calle Florida (Florida street)

Calle Florida is a large pedestrian walk street that spans blocks and blocks within the Microcentro. There are thousands and thousands of people on the streets and is quite a sight! There are all types of stores on Calle Florida from women's clothing to men's, sporting goods, wine, shoes, music, movies, and pretty much everything in between. Many of the stores carry similar items so take the time to check out the different stores before buying something right away. AR$30-150. It just totally depends on what you get.

Where the real "night-morning"life is!

by Ivik

I don't know why but nightlife in Buenos Aires and I would say all Argentina is sooooo special!

It starts at about 1-2 am... but if you are going so early you'll be dancing alone! by 3-4 am the club starts to be full of people and finishes at 6-8 am... if it's saturday the best thing to do is to have breakfast, coffee, mate or tea with "facturas" with friends or "new friends"! ;-) Casual dress, probably smart for girls, but will depend with the club's policy
