Recoleta apartment scams????

by bkq

I just wanted to check to see if anyone has heard of scams when renting apartments in Recoleta, or what the "normal" procedure for renting an apartment there for 1 month.

I've never been to the city before and I wanted to reserve a place while I still have lots of options and time. I went through the site 1054apartments.com and found a small (20 m2) apartment in a great location in Recoleta that has all the amenities I am looking for. It is owned by a private individual and they charge US$800 for one month, $200 up front and the rest in cash when I arrive. I already sent US$200 through paypal and everything seems fine. But the thought of showing up with US$600 cash to meet someone I don't know in a city I have never been to, and the thought of getting robbed and having no place to stay there, concerns me a little bit. So I wanted to check to see if anyone knows of scams in renting apartments there or if there is something I should be warned about in reserving the place or checking in with cash. I will traveling alone.

If you want to take precautions you could ask the person who's renting the apartment to send you a scanned copy of his DNI (stands for Documento Nacional de Identidad, or: national identity certificate), and a home phone telephone number (not a cell).
Also you may want to try and contact people who stayed on the apartment before, try to get references or reviews of the place and the locator.
How did you find this apartment?
Best of lucks!

I just found it on the site 1054apartments.com, which has a bunch of apartments in Recoleta. I got that web site from another travel site. I checked several sites that have apartments in Buenos Aires and just picked the one that best suited my needs.

Re: Recoleta apartment scams????

by Guerrero_Zulu1

Ask for the DNI copy and a home phone number, for your safety. And try to find someone who rented the apartment before. Again, it doesn't look like a scam, but it's only natural for you to know for sure who is this person you're going to meet in an unknown country with 600 dollars in your pocket.

We rented in San Telmo through Vacation Rentals by Owners, VRBO, and had no problems. We also had to pay a certain amount up front, and the rest in cash on arrival. I don't think you'll have any problems, but like anything else, be careful. "Trust but verify"

Re: Recoleta apartment scams????

by morochaargentina

we rented apartments from different sites (never from that one) and we never had a problem.
we always did a small deposit upfront and cash upon arrival (when they give you the keys and you sign an agreement)
But for the rental laws in Argentina, THEY have a LOT more to lose than you do after you take possesion of the apartment... Just be careful as every traveler should be, but don't panic. You should be fine :)

Travel Tips for Buenos Aires

Julio Bocca - The Most Renowned Argentine Dancer

by mircaskirca

Julio Bocca is one of the greatest ballet dancers of the latter part of the 20th century, and probably the most important Argentine dancer of all time. Born in 1967 in Munro, a small town in the province of Buenos Aires, Julio Bocca danced his first steps in his mother's studio when he was only 4 years old. Starting his professional career as the first dancer at Theatro Colon in Buenos Aires, he was then invited to join the American Ballet Theatre by Mikhail Baryshnikov, one of the greatest ballet dancers of the 20th century.

From then on he performed with the main dance companies of the world like the Bolshoi of Moscow, the London Royal Ballet, the Scala of Milan, the Zarzuela of Madrid, the Royal Danish ballet of Denmark and the Opera Ballet of Paris, among many others. In 1990 he finally created his own ballet company, Ballet Argentino, with which he has done many tours around the globe, often accompanied by the great Argentine dancer Eleonora Cassano. Julio Bocca has also mixed ballet dancing with tango. In 1998 he appeared in the film 'Tango, no me dejes nunca' (English title: Tango). Julio Bocca said goodbye to the stages with a free show at the Obelisco of Buenos Aires, on December 22, 2007. An estimated crowd of 300,000 people attended his final farewell performance. Many guest artists were presented, from the world of tango, jazz and pop, as well as other celebrated ballet figures, like his long-time colleagues Maximiliano Guerra and Eleonora Cassano, Tamara Rojo, Jose Manuel Carreño, Cecilia Figaredo, 'Ballet Argentino', the great Argentine singer Mercedes Sosa and pop icon Diego Torres, among others.

When the lights finally dimmed, fireworks lit up the sky, and Bocca returned for almost half an hour of wild cheering. The large group of dancers onstage showered him with kisses, flowers and champagne, and the audience was crying. Such emotional and fond farewell. I was very happy that my visit of Buenos Aires coincided with this magnificent spectacle of the superstar. Gracias, Julio.

Cats of Recoletta Cemetery

by cjg1

We visited Recoleta Cemetery and were surprised at the amount sof cats wandering about. They were friendly creatures and didn't seem to have a care in the world. We found them lounging in front of some mausoleums, on benches, steps and stones. Some of the cats were quite friendly but Rob and I discouraged Liz from picking them up. She was content just to pet a few and even had a black and white cat follow her for a time.

The cats are fed by local women daily, which is probably why they look so healthy.

Summer retreat from Buenos Aires

by lkdahl

Tigre is a town located just outside of the Capital Federal on an island in the Paraná Delta. There is a casino, amusement park, many shops, especially furniture shops, restuarants and bars. You can take a boat tour of the different islands and waterways for about $7 pesos. It's about an hour long and you get see the summer homes and the resorts in the area.

Rowing, jetskiing, power boating are very popular here. Several rowing clubs are located here.

Tigre is eisily accessable by train from Retiro station in Buenos Aires. Cost is less than $1 USD for a roundtrip. It's a great place to take a day trip and get away from the hussle and bustle of Buenos Aires.

Colonial Religious Art

by missbutler about Candida Silva Antiguedades

This antique shop is tucked at the end of a shopping pavillion in San Telmo (not as bad as it sounds). They have an extensive collection of XVII and XVIII c. Spanish colonial art and silver, mostly religious themed. The dealers are happy to spend time and tell you about the items, certificates of authenticity are availbale - but make sure you ask for them. They are open to discussing price breaks if you pay in cash. A great place to browse or buy. devotional objects from the Jesuit missions in northern Argentina. $300-$1000
