Most stores and hotels are located in Palermo, with visitors having access to transport services and the major city sites.

San Telmo is also an option for those looking for a more traditional feel to their stay. Another option with a more local but swanky vibe is the Palermo Soho neighborhood.

Buenos Aires Travel Tips

Do Try to Tango

You have to try to dance a little bit of Tango as it’s a very popular dance in Argentina. It is possible to find some free lessons with a local in a Milonga or in some hostels. If you just want to appreciate the dance, there are many places in the city where you can pay to watch a show. If you’re lucky like us you can even get pulled on stage for a dance! Have fun!

Don’t buy water

Unlike other South and Central American countries the water is safe to drink. You can refill your bottle with Buenos Aires’ tap water, is totally drinkable. Save your money for the steaks!

Do a free walking tour

There’s no need to spend loads on a guided tour if you are trying to save some cash. You can enjoy a free walking tour like in the biggest cities of Europe. Of course, don’t forget to tip your guide. Another option is renting a bicycle and cycling around Buenos Aires which is quite fun.

Do a day trip to Delta el Tigre

With a return ticket of 8 ARS more or less, you can take a slow train of one hour each way to visit Delta el Tigre and enjoy a nice way to relax and the beautiful view of the Delta.

Eat all the meats!

Argentina is know for it’s grass-fed beef. Head to a parrilla and try a little bit of everything. My favorite place was La Brigada Parrilla which was featured on Bizarre Foods. Be sure to try some sweet bread as well (it’s not what you think it is).

Don’t leave Buenos Aires without trying dulce de leche

The amazing flavor of the milky caramel sweet… You can find this incredible treat in different types of desserts but don’t leave until try it, you won’t regret it!
