    A trip to Argentina really isn't complete without a stop in Buenos Aires. This bustling city has a fascinating history and a great art/culture scene. (And, like elsewhere in Argentina, BsAs has an amazing nightlife scene). There are tons of great museums, fun nightclubs and fantastic restaurants. If anything, come to Buenos Aires to take in the history. Check out the Eva Peron museum. Visit La Plaza de Mayo, where many a protest has taken place (including the famous demonstration that demanded Peron's release from prison). Go to the Konex, a cavernous warehouse where the city's indie groups perform.

    Really interesting. Great neighborhoods and shopping districts. Stayed in a nice boutique hotel in Palermo, Costa Rica Hotel. It has unique decor and a very helpful, attentive staff. It is close to the main areas of Palermo and transportation to downtown areas. Ortiz Street has many shopping districts....yarn district and leather district.

    Wonderful street art scene in Buenos Aires, especially in the neighborhoods of Colegiales and Palermo. Take a walking or biking tour with Graffitimundo!

    I honestly did not think I would have liked Buenos Aires, as it is a large city. But Buenos Aires had so many different neighborhoods to explore all kinds of different walks of life. There is old style San Telmo, the Posh Palermo, the touristy Recoleta... the list goes on. Buenos Aires is also filled with all kinds of walks of life from other countries, and is a melting pot of cultures.

    Buenos Aires is a great city, but you might walk around thinking you're in Paris. A lot of the architecture is French. Have a steak; it's the most popular local food.

    Eat Meat. Learn to start a night out at 2 am. Eat more meat. Drink wine, change for beer, go back to wine.

    Buenos Aires is a good time. Perhaps even a great time. It's lively (the locals seem to never sleep), delicious (the food is amazing), and interesting (one of the more varied cities I've ever been to). In my mind, it ranks up with New York City, Istanbul, and London for sheer livability (that is, a made up standard of mine, mostly based upon how likely it is that I could see myself living in said city and not getting bored).

    The downsides are few and far between. Beware of pick pockets, note that the currency exchange is getting increasingly unfriendly, and try to stay way from the most heavily touristy parts of town. Other than that, enjoy.

    A large, loud, sprawling city, Buenos Aires has something for all tastes and interests. In fact, you should have to do a personality test before entering to determine which section you should stay at. Are you an art loving, market trawling, local brew supping type, or do you prefer a bit of high-end shopping and culture? Are you looking for a party, a tango, or some posh Argentinian nosh? Whatever you want, Buenos Aires has it. It even has a Snog, for the more home-sick of you. Just make sure you take some comfy shoes: you will need them if you are going to experience it all.

    Buenos Aires is one of the most charming cities in Latin America, being very cosmopolitan. You would think that you are in a city near the Mediterranean, with the strong European influences here in Architecture, food, and the people. Besides a strong influence from Spain, there are also strong communities of Italian and Germans in Argentina.

    THe large avenues and boulevards mixed with the colorful side streets and alleys assist the European feel, and if you saw a picture of the main city, you couldn't tell it from Europe.

    Despite the history of Dictatorships, financial collapses, and other national maladies, Buenos Aires has a large middle class that appreciates the Arts as passionately as their politics. This center of the Tango has great restaurants, food and wine, and convenient transportation.

    Being in the southern hemisphere with a mostly temperatue climate, this is a great winter destination for those from the northern half of the world.

    I have been twice at Buenos Aires and it is a magical city. Dont think it twice and visit it, and if you do visit it you MUST go to a soccer match in River's Plate stadium. I've been, you'll never experience something like that, hooligans are always singing shouting screaming its a party inside there. I feel as if the stadium was falling down when River scores. Its amazing. Also Tigre and El Delta are very very pretty places the fairs everything. Hope to go back soon

    The only thing more beautiful than the city is the people in it. BA has a Latin-Italian flare. Spectacular food, amazing nightlife, and grand architecture.

    This place is chill, mostly locals. The server was very friendly and helpful. Make sure to order Milanesa de Ternera (breaded veal) and request for chimichurrii. The serving is huge. And the wine is good and cheap.

    Enjoy the cafes and walking around during the day. Nap and then take advantage of the great nightlife.

    Замечательный город! Был там в августе, т.е. во время местной зимы. Температура ночью была около ноля, а днем солнце прогревало город до +15

    We were quite disappointed with our experience in Buenos Aires. We had a few encounters with very rude people. 3 different times we felt some sort of racism so it was disappointing. We tried various local restaurants and didn't find anything we liked. We thought they were famous for their steaks but I felt what we get out here in the states were far superior.

    I would love to check some other areas of Argentina but I'll skip Buenos Aires in the future.

    Considered the Paris of South America, Buenos Aires is considered by many to be the most European of South American cities. With a heavy Italian and German influence. Combine excellent bargains for shopping, delicious local cuisine, along with a cultured and friendly people. And you have must visit city. And least, let us not forget that Buenos Aires is home to the Tango. Walk to streets ofthe posh Recoleta for a trip down old Buenos Aires.

    Spent 6 months living in this city during college and could not get enough. The food, people, nightlife, and did I mention nightlife were amazing. I hope to get back here again soon!

    My home city, what can I say?... It's beautiful and enormous, with a very interesting cultural offer and an incredibly long nightlife. It has everything to offer, pay special attention ro the buildings, historical places and green spaces.

    Buenos Aires is sophisticated, sexy, colorful, clean, and very organized. There are also so much culture and arts as well as history and interesting stories. Our first time visit will definitely be not our last, I would like to return again.

Description

Known for activities ranging from the contagious tango to the worship of futbol demigods such as Maradona and Messi, Buenos Aires is gaining fans from around the world. And, with the price of hotel rooms, you can stay as long as you'd like. Situated on the Rio de la Plata, Buenos Aires has a decidedly European feel. In the 19th century, Italians, Spaniards, and Germans immigrated en masse, ... read more
bringing their architecture, food and culture. The city, like its tango, is a blend of passion and grace. Feel its pulse at attractions such as the Museum of Latin American Art of Buenos Aires, which showcases the modern art movement in South America, and the Parque Tres de Febrero, the city's lush park and gathering place. Popular things to do here include taking in a traditional tango show (or lesson), a soccer match at Boca Stadium or an opera at the Teatro Colon. Traditional Argentine cuisine focuses heavily on beef, so try some a la parrilla (grill) or asado (barbequed). Hotels are ridiculously inexpensive and based by neighborhood. The city center (microcentro) is good for business hotels and Palermo, Retiro and Recoleta is better for atmosphere.
