    Have been to BA many times for tango which is my passion. Mar del Plata is a much more relaxed place but there are still lots of courses and milongas every night of the week.

    by swesn Updated Nov 15, 2006

    At the Diagonal Pueyrredon, you can find a few rows of rather artistic handicraft stalls. It is not the largest or the best in Argentina, but you just might be able to find some delightful items here.

    Come in the evening as things start to get really lively. Sometimes, there are street-side performances as well.

    What to buy: Crafts like candle-holders, displays made from soldering iron together, wooden crafts like kitchenware, more tango figurines, glass jewellery, handmade trinkets, etc...
