Unique Suggestions: Zoological Gardens
Not in the league of San Diego, London or Toronto, but much better than many urban zoos. The Argentines have not yet caught up with the trend of more natural habitats for animals (dogs in apartment buildings are a common sight), but the zoo does have a good variety of species to see.
