    Recoleta Cemetery

    69 reviews

    Beautiful, serene and filled with history, La Recoleta cemetery was one of my favorite places that I visited while in Buenos Aires. Once you've fought your way through the crowd of tourists in front of Eva Perón's tomb - still unmarked because the government refuses to recognize that it's there - it's a wonderful place to stroll around. Many of ...

    Palermo Viejo

    16 reviews

    I lived in this barrio for about a month and loved every minute of it. It's one of the safest neighborhoods in the city (though still probably not a great idea to walk around by oneself in the middle of the night), and has plenty of good restaurants, shops and cafes to drink café con leche.

    Bosques de Palermo

    9 reviews

    The sprawling Bosques de Palermo can be considered Buenos Aires' own Central Park: a green respite from the bustling city. I love to go jogging there and, weather permitting, catch some rays while drinking mate.

    Reserva Ecológica

    2 reviews

    I recommend riding a bike through the Reserva until you arrive at the Plata River (the Costanera, as it's called), where you can relax and have a picnic. Or once you've exited the Reserva, stop by a food truck for a choripan or bondiola, two of the most popular (and delicious) local sandwiches.

    La Puerta Roja

    2 reviews

    La Puerta Roja has a great divey feel: there's no sign, only a (surprise!) red door to mark the place. A fun, unpretentious and laidback atmosphere reigns over, packed with locals and tourists alike. There's also a pool table until midnight. The food is amazing for a bar: try their Super Nachos (with chili and guacamole) or the German sausage ...

    La Catedral

    3 reviews

    Up the creaky stairs of an old building in Almagro lies a post-punk/neo-goth hall that hosts the largest beginner tango lesson in the city. Made up mostly of college-age tourists and local couples, the lesson often turns into a polite mosh pit of tango beginners accidentally running into each other and muttering "perdon." Once the lesson is over, the venue ...

    Kika Club

    6 reviews

    We went to Kika Club a couple of times and my favorite part was that the crowd is more local than tourists/backpackers and that the entrace fee is pretty cheap. The music is upbeat and they include some regional beats to american top 40 songs.

    Museo de Arte Latinoamericano de Buenos Aires

    25 reviews

    It's not the sort of "see-everything-on-the-run" museum. Actually, it is quite small, but that's for the best; you can take your time to contemplate the art and the well designed lay-out. For those who are not experts (like me), you'll even find some works by Frida, Rivera and Soldi, so that's a plus. Oh, and don't forget to check the ...
