by JAYNERJJ

My wife and I are spending 2 weeks in Buenos Aires in Feb., I believe our hotel (Facon Grand) is downtown, we have been reading about the differant areas of B.A., such as Recoleta, Puerto Madero, Palermo Hollywood, La Boca and San Telmo (if I have left any out please let me know), what I am asking is if we take a taxi to these areas where would I ask the driver to let us off so that we are in the heart of these neighborhoods, such as a landmark, park, hotel,..... I hope I am not asking too much. One other question, my wife is wondering what attire is worn during the day this time of year.

Thank You

Recoleta: cementerio
Puerto Madero: no problem
Palermo Hollywood: Plaza Italia
la Boca: no problem
San Telmo: Plaza Dorrego
Retiro: railway station
?? : Plaza de Mayo

On the official tourism site of the city of Buenos Aires (www.bue.gov.ar) you will find a lot of (self) guided tours in the city.

Palermo Soho ---> Plaza Serrano (Serrano & Honduras)
Palermo Hollywood ---> Honduras & Fitz Roy
Las Cañitas ---> Baez & Arevalo
La Boca ---> go to Caminito
Puerto Madero ---> Hilton Hotel
Microcentro (Downtown) ---> Plaza de Mayo (Rivadavia & San Martín)
Retiro ---> Plaza San Martín (Maipu & Santa Fe)
Recoleta ---> Plaza Francia (Guido & Junín)
San Telmo ---> Plaza Dorrego (Defensa & Humberto I)


vtveen: Plaza Italia is closer to Palermo Soho than to P. Hollywood...

Travel Tips for Buenos Aires

The Planetarium

by fga

A journey around the planet Having a look at the ends of the space. That is the proposal submitted by Planetarium "Galileo Galilei", which boastfully depicts its architecture in the elegant "Tres de Febrero" park in the neighborhood of Palermo. The visitors can not only amaze himself with samples of vast meteorites but also with exhibitions and models depicting satellites, the first lunar module and the flight deck of an Apolo shuttle.-

Peruvian Street Musicians

by Bwana_Brown

During our very enjoyable walk along the pedestrian-only Av. Florida with it's many shops, we came across this band from Peru. They were playing some very nice tunes at this little intersection not far from Plaza de Mayo.

A good crowd was gathered around to listen to their tunes and singing so we stopped as well. One warning though is not to stand below the eaves of the large old buildings in this area, since eaves are also where the pigeons sit!

I spoke briefly to the lead musician to find out where they were from, before donating some cash and continuing our walk toward the Casa Rosada (Presidential Palace).

The most extraordinary building in BA

by TheWanderingCamel

Tucked away in Barrio Tribunales and taking up a whole block, Palacio de las Aguas Corrientes (Palace of Running Water) really is a palace - one built to a very practical purpose. When first built , the fabulously coloured exterior concealed the tanks and pumps that once supplied the whole city with fresh water. This is the Versailles of waterworks, the grandest of all the amazing Victorian-era waterworks to be found anywhere in the world.

After a disastrous yellow-fever epidemic swept through Buenos Aires in 1877, British engineers were commissioned to design a waterworks that would ensure a clean, safe water supply for the future. Most of the engineering components came from Belgium but England's famous Royal Doulton ceramic company were contracted to make no less than 300,000 faience-glazed bricks, some plain, some highly ornamental, each one carefully numbered, and then imported to be installed like an enormous jigsaw around the entire building. The result is truly extraordinary, a multicoloured, highly decorative example of the ceramacist's craft.

Of course, the city outgrew the supply from here and the engineering works are long gone. Nowadays the offices of Aguas Argentinas, the building also houses a most unusual museum -one devoted to sanitation that displays hundreds of loos as well as taps, basins, pipes - anything and everything related to keeping a clean water supply functioning.

Address: Av. Cordoba between Riobamba and Avochucho.

Leather - Good Buy

by XKuger about Many shops

I bought some leather bags and a purse for my girlfriend. It was made from this unique wild rodent that is found only in Argentina.

It was very fine leather with a soft texture and very unique.

It was also resinabally priced. Most definitly Leather goods like bags, bealt, shoes etc.

Beautiful Freak

by leok about Mundo Bizarro

Some people claim this is the city's best bar. I didn't get to visit anywhere near enough to say whether that's accurate, but it easily makes my world top 5.

As you enter you pass the bar on your left and you can grab one of the many tables lining the wall on your right - great for a group of 6-8 if you want a lively conversation or just a chance to check out the other talent.

If you instead decide to slide next door you'll enter a room that's dropped out of a David Lynch movie. Thick drapes cover the walls surrounding large black leather sofas while a glitterball flashes red slashes around the room. Very cool atmosphere and better suited to an intimate conversation or a chilled out vibe.

The DJ plays electronica, jazz or Argentinian beats - the music varies depending on the evening. Later on staff may put on hard to find imported cds such as the eels for a smooth end to the evening.

Staff bring beers or a selection of cocktails to your table, though there is also bar service.

The first time I came I was impressed, then after a few more visits it really became a smouldering favourite.

7pm til late (Mon-Fri)
8pm til late (Sat-Sun) No code - but most people dress trendy
