Visit Recoleta Cemetery
Okay, visiting a cemetery may not sound like an exciting way to fill the day. However, Recoleta feels like a world apart from the bustling city. Wander through a labyrinth of tombs with strikingly different styles such as the glitzy ‘Far Far Away’ tomb of Father Fahy or the monument to the young girl and her dog. Join Evita aficionados and Peronistas in quiet reverence at Eva Peron’s tomb. Go to the main Buenos Aires Destination Page for lots more information.
One of BA’s most intriguing ‘barrios’, find eclectic coffee shops, street art and cool cafes. Palermo is the place to put on your walking shoes and just go discover. It’s not the destination that counts but the journey, as they say. Go to the main Buenos Aires Destination Page for lots more information.
Visit San Telmo market on a Sunday
A ‘barrio’ of charm and character even on a quiet day, on Sundays it is more like a street party at times. Signs warn of thieves who might ‘steal you’. Indeed, the place stole my affections. Go to the main Buenos Aires Destination Page for lots more information.
Check out La Boca
With working class traditions and a maritime past, La Boca is unique. Sit at a café, eat at a restaurant or just shop for souvenirs. Beware- you will not be the only tourist here. Go to the main Buenos Aires Destination Page for lots more information.
