About Buenos Aires

Buenos Aires, the capital of Argentina, has been a major urban hub in South America. The city offers almost all amenities to its visitors. Some business establishments operate 24/7. However, just like any other highly urbanized cities, expect traffic, noise, pollution and high crime rate. Nevertheless, many visitors fall in love with the city, finding it difficult to leave.

La Boca

La Boca is a neighborhood known for its colorful houses, especially in the street of El Caminito. The neighborhood used to be inhabited by Italian and Spanish workers in the meatpacking industry so it is more European than Latin. The streets are often lined with artists and vendors selling souvenir items. There are also many tango dancers performing in the streets. Another must-visit is the La Bombonera stadium where the Boca Juniors football team plays.

San Telmo

San Telmo, the oldest neighborhood in Buenos Aires is best visited during weekends. During Sundays, many tango performers and artisans are out on the streets showing their wares or performing respectively. The neighborhood’s center, Plaza Dorrego, pretty much sums it all up and is worth a snapshot. Other notable structures in the area include the Russian Orthodox Cathedral of the Holy Trinity, Manzana de las Luces and the Lezame Park. Make sure to visit the Feria de San Telmo, an antique fair held every Sunday.

Microcentro

Microcentro is another district in Buenos Aires, mostly catering to tourists. Visitors can shop, dine and see historical attractions around the district. It houses several historical attractions such as the Casa Rosada, Palacio Barolo, Casa de la Cultura, Libreria La Calesita, La Botica del Angel, Plaza de Mayo, Avenida de Mayo and Pasaje La Piedad. Florida and Galerias Pacifico, on the other hand, are good places to shop.

Recoleta

Recoleta is the upscale district of Buenos Aires. It contains many French-inspired buildings with high-end business establishments, restaurants, hotels and other infrastructures. Among the most notable ones include the National Fine Arts Museum, Recoleta Cemetery, Del Pilar Church, French Embassy Palace, El Ateneo Bookstore, Palacio Duhau, Alvear Palace Hotel and the Ralph Lauren Store.

Palermo

Palermo is another district ideal for those looking for budget to mid-range eating spots. There are also plenty of bars, hotels and accommodations perfectly suited for budget travel. There are some parks in the area where one can take a nice stroll, such as the Jardin Botanico and those within Bosques de Palermo.

Tango Shows

Tango may be ordinary in Buenos Aires, but for visitors, it should be included in the “to-do/ to-watch list”. Tango is very much different when one sees it on TV compared to the Argentinian way of dancing it. There is just so much passion when Argentinian dancers perform it.

El Viejo Almacen is the oldest dance hall in Buenos Aires. It features the most traditional and genuine way of dancing the Tango. Visitors can eat dinner at a restaurant across the street before the show. This costs around $85 for both show and dinner. Show tickets (without dinner) cost $60. Other well known Tango shows can be found in Equina Carlos Gardel, El Querandi, Mr. Tango, Che Tango and Madero Tango.
