Buenos Aires Advice

by angiedk

I'm contemplating spending 2 weeks in BA at the end of January/early Feb. I'm travelling solo, would like to get a good taste of the culture (on a shoestring budget - ha ha). Any suggestions on a decent place to stay for starters... doesn't need to be fancy, just CLEAN and relatively quiet. And, what is the 'must do' in BA?

thanks!

Excellent choice, Angie. There's so much to do in Buenos Aires --- a very vibrant city and very European although located in South America.
1. You can watch Tango and even get lessons if you want since you are staying two weeks.
2.San Telmo has a great market, usually on Sundays -- where you can see tango in the street while shopping for antiques.
3.The equivalent of the American White House in BA is called the PINK house (it is really pink) and sometimes there may be events around the area.
4.There is also an obelisk in the middle of a very large road in the center of BA which is a national symbol -- but be careful during Fridays as political demonstrations/protests often occur. They do not bother tourists but sometimes you might see someone throw something at buildings --- but it is more of an "rather" rather than an intent to hurt someone.
5, Palermo is a very nice district with a nearby ecological reserve. The buildings are very new with a bridge designed to look like it is dancing the Tango. Great restaurants too!
6. Off the Beaten path --- go to Le Tigre. Great river canal tour with beautiful houses and the banks and a restaurant can be included with the boat tour
7. Visit the beautful houses of El Caminito --- great history but do not venture out of the well-populated streets as muggings of tourists have been reported in this place which is near the football stadium (La Boca area)
8. Go to nearby Uruguay through a short boat ride (Colonia del Sacramento of Uruguay has a famous lighthouse that you can go up to with lots of artists around)

So many things to do, and it's not expensive! Have fun --- hope you visit my Buenos Aires and tips pages. Really enjoyed this city. Hope this helps, Norman :)

oops...in item #4, I meant the "throwing" by demonstrators is more of an "act" rather than an intent to harm people. I saw the demonstrations myself and did not feel threatened at all - it was interesting actually.

Awesome information - thank you SO much!!! Any suggestions on where to stay? Is it worth going on Craigs List to find an apt for 2 weeks, or do you know of a decent hotel that's quite inexpensive?

How to be a female tourist and survive in a club!

by sabrina_florida

This is another topic many female tourists have pointed out which I, as a local, am used to so it's an everyday thing for me.
When you go to a nightclub, Argentine guys will come to you and try to chat you up. If you don't like him, you just exchange a few words so as not to be rude, usually just saying "yes", "no" "aha" and a few smiles so they understand that's it and usually they stop pestering you whithin seconds.
Now this is a global thing. BUT, sometimes you're for example walking around the place and a guy will take your hand or surround you, or even tell you in the ear "you're the love of my life" and things like that, or just take you from the waist and start chatting you up. In those cases, you just smile and continue walking. Don't get mad or give them a black look. There's no need at all.
This is the way here, unfortunately. I mean, I don't care cos I'm used to it (and subsconsciously it's rather flattering I have to admit), but guys don't understand that THAT way it's almost impossible to get a girl!

running in buenos aires

by morochaargentina

We've been running around the world for the last year, and we always appreciate when the hotel receptionist can give us some good trails and how many miles/kilometres the trail is.

So here we go Buenos Aires!

Ecological Reserve Costanera Sur (In the Puerto Madero Area)
FREE access
Open Tuesdays to Sundays from 8 am to 6 pm (7pm in summer)
You can choose between the small loop (5KM, 3.2 miles) or the big loop (12.8 KM, 8miles)
You can get a map at the entrance if you don't want to print this one. Just your running shoes!

If you have your bike with you, you can also go biking!

found a great leather stores

by arielak about Calle Florida (Florida street)

Silivia & Mario's is a wonderful , family owned place to buy leather goods and cashmere in Downtown Buenos Aires. We got some custom made jackets, beautifuly done and shopping there was one of the highlights as we could really speak to her family & staff and admire their handcraft and how much they love what they do.

It is located across the street from the Marriott on Alvear. It is a 2-story shop with the showroom downstairs and the workshop upstairs. Silivia is a beautiful person and her staff is very helpful and the environment is good for relaxing away from the rush of Avenida Florida. Leather jackets, from teh raack or custom made. They also have cool bags and sweaters somewhere between 150 and 250 pero jacket, 25 per sweater. They give DISCONUTS for cash or travellers check!!

One of Buenos Aires Top Spots!!

by JonnyVT about Milion

Milion is very posh and brimming with sexy women. Milión is a dark, candle-lit, ornate place with numerous glass doors and partitions, situated on 3 floors.

This place used to be a stunning mansion with a garden but was then converted to become this go to hot spot.

I was told that during the '01 economic crisis in Argentina, the former owner of the property sold it for 1 million dollars making it a hell of a bargain.

Milion is a great place to have a private party, romantic dinner, or drinks with friends. A cool, breezy summer night would be the ideal time to check it out.

It's open Monday - Friday 12 noon - 2 AM Open Thursdays 12 noon - 3 AM Open Fridays 12 noon - 4 AM Open Saturdays 7:30 PM - 4 AM Open Sundays 8 PM - 2 AM

How to find it - at first glance you may have some trouble finding the place because there is no sign but look down on the ground at the main entrance and you'll see a discreet name plate set into in the floor. As you enter through the main corridor don't be intimidated by the grand staircase to the left.

A must to check out while in Buenos Aires! Trendy
