WHat to see in and around Buenos Aires

by jerrybarach

MY wife and I will be in Buenos Aires for a few days in August. We are looking for suggestions as to a good place to stay (comfortable, not too expensive, convenient to transportation and major tourist attactsions) as well as worthwhile things to see in the city and nearby. We are mostly intersted in cultural things, not beaches.

If you type Buenos Aires into the Search box at the top of the page, it will take you to the BA pages written by VT members. You'll find a whole range of suggestions there of places to go; things to see and do; where to stay, shop and eat (with an indication of prices); how to get around the city - a virtual guidebook of all the city has to offer. BA's a fantastic city, you'll have a great time there. Reading the pages written by VT members will give you a good feel for =the place as well as loads of ideas for your holiday.

Check the tourist board site. There is a group of local citizens that offer free tours similar to Big Apple Greeters in NYC, I think it is called Cicerones. Try searching that word.

And, go to La Boca where you can walk around then get something to eat at the place at the end of the street by the water and they have tango dancing, etc. - you can sit there for hours just watching.

The Evita Musuem is good.

Have fun.

If you are there on a Sunday the Feria de Mataderos is very much worth the hour's trip out to this area of the city. I have more info on it on my BsAs page.

Good thing you are not interested in beaches since you will be visiting at the end of winter and beach weather it is not. You will still find the weather is a bit chilly and most likely a bit damp.

Not certain what "not too expensive" means, but your best choice might be booking an apartment. You will find most of the major tourist attractions (Casa Rosada, etc) in the central city area but I would not recommend that as a place to stay. It is very busy during the daytime but tends to get rather empty at night. The Recoleta and the part of Palermo that adjoins the Recoleta are fairly central and make it easy to reach most of the city via public transport.

The Art Suites apartment hotel is a decent choice in the Recoleta, as would be Art Hotel, The Bel Air and The Concord Callao another apartment hotel. All would be in the $usd a night range.

As for visiting surrounding areas, a ferry ride across the Rio de la Plata to Colonia would be a nice day trip, as well as a visit to San Antonio de Areco, just copy and paste this link to your browser for more information

Hope this helps get you started and have a great visit

A good place to visit in Buenos Aires is Recoleta, as it has many cultural sights to see including the Recoleta Cemetery where Evita is buried. As for accommodations in BA, check out Hotel Plaza Francia - though I'm not sure if this fits your description of a "not too expensive" place to stay.

Travel Tips for Buenos Aires

AROUND RECOLETA VILLAGE...

by marcelo15

while trying to get to the famoust cemetery, where Evita Peron, Carlos Gardel and some other argentinian people. i walked through this beautiful area, called RECOLETA. There are so many flats with plenty of little trees outside the windows, and some other are located over some balcons. i really like to see so many vegetations around.

learn some Castellano

by AlekToronto

I found that the vast majority of Portenos do not speak english. I did not hang out in hotels, tourist traps or tourist restaurants as I am sure the employees there probably do.

When in BA do as the locals do and learn at least the basics in Castellano (Spanish) and realize that the local accent is different than in other Latin countries 9bar Uruguay). I must say the locals sound so cute with their sh accent! Overall I found the portenos very friendly and helpful so a little spanish will go a long way.

Also most if not all local restaurants will not have english menus.

Sunglasses, a combo lock, etc

by haikela7

I had no idea how much I would use my sunglasses even in the colder months. The city is not the cleanest, so they helped protect my contact lenses from the pollution. Here's the packing list I used:

ONLY IN SAN ISIDRO

by RafaelTheSecond

Perhaps in Tigre, but almost for sure in San Isidro you can find the Rio de La Plata exactly like the first conquerors found that new land, which today it is one of the most famous destination in the world! When you go to Buenos Aires you never think about wilderness, but there is, and if you go to the Province of San Isidro, you will be surprised and have heaps of fun!

I am very lucky to have friends in San Isidro, and in fact it is one of my favourite secrets in Buenos Aires, but I strongly recommend you to go there!
