Well for me the best place to stay is Recoleta or Palermo. Its very safe and you are close to everything, shops, the mall, restaurants, bars, the center and other neighbourhoods.
Check this site, They rent apartments but also sell football tickets so maybe they can e and a good help you finding a place and a good match.

Recoleta is probably the most famous of Buenos Aires neighborhoods because it is an area of great historical and architectural interest, due, particularly to the Recoleta Cemetery, also because you count there with some of the city’s top restaurants and active nightclubs; is the quietest and the most expensive neighborhood of the city. Another good area is Palermo, which offers a zoo, a large man-made lake with rentable boats, and the impressive Japanese Gardens. This is also the largest barrio; had a great night life, with lots of pub’s, restaurants and disco’s. Buenos Aires got a really good public transportation around the city that counts with Subway, lot of buses and taxis. Also you can walk a lot because the

If you want to go to a River Plate match, it is better that you book with advance your tickets, because as a tourist, generally the resell people inflate the prices, also there is a chance that you'll get fake tickets, and even if you get a good ticket sometimes entering to the stadium is also a big deal. I think that a great option is to book what is called a football tour or football experience, which is the safest way to attend to a football match, to get your tickets, to get in, and to have a successful experience.

This is a good web site to Book in advance football tickets:

Hope that helps!

Travel Tips for Buenos Aires

my FAVORITE barrio in BA

by AlekToronto

I ended up spending most of my time in Palermo SOHO and Palermo Hollywood because this is a quieter more upscale area(s) of BA. The traffic is lighter (less pollution) and all the buildings are low rise.
There are many small independently owned shops, boutiques and restaurants here and the quality of the food here is overall higher than elsewhere in the city. the prices are a bit higher here but still a great deal for foreigners.

Next time I visit BA to shop and eat I will stay in Palermo SOHO.

Palace of Running Water

by pili

The Palace of Running Water, built between 1887 and 1994, is located on the block formed by the following four streets: Córdoba, Ayacucho, Viamonte and Riobamba. The Palace’s exterior makes it one of the most beautiful buildings in Buenos Aires, while its interior educates visitors about the building’s history and the city’s sanitary history.
The museum also displays models, period advertisements, and even some of the first approved plans for sanitary installations in the city. You can look at the sanitary plans for buildings such as the Casa de Gobierno, Teatro Colón, and the Grandes Depósitos Distribuidores, among others.

Shoe Polishers

by sabrina_florida

This is a snapshot that you'll see many times while in downtown: a man sitting on a stool, usually reading the paper, and having his leather shoes polished. I've even seen a boy having his black leather Nikes polished!
The pictures shows this tradition, but in 1908.

Colonia del Sacramento, Uruguay

by acemj

Colonia make a great day trip from Buenos Aires. You can take either a fast (about 45 mins.) or a slower ferry across the Rio de la Plata to get get to Uruguay. Once you're here, you'll want to spend your time in the historic core of Colonia which is full of interesting buildings, charming restaurants and cobblestoned streets. It's very relaxing especially after spending a few days in the busy, polluted, megapolis of Buenos Aires.

Check out my Colonia del Sacramento page for details.

A Galeria is a little shop center, i really do not know the name of the store, but if you see the first MacDonalds of Florida Street, next to San martin Square and look for my friends Paulo and Elizabeth, you will see nice Cashmere pullovers and many incredible coats with patagonian wool. Great quality and spectacular prices, you can get a nice and genuine patagonian coat for less than 50 dollars. I made a real party there.

Paulo is brazilian and Elizabeth is argentinean, they are very nice people and for sure they will give you a warm welcome!

The prices in Buenos Aires now are really unbelieveble, very cheap for americans, canadians, europeans and believe it or not, for us brazilians! All kind of coats! Prices varies alot, and for sure you will find excellent bargains!
