Trip Type:
Backpacking / gap year Sightseeing & culture

Customer Travel Tip: Spend two weeks if you can and give yourself a few days to wander and admire the great architecture and parks. Visit Feria de San Telmo on Sundays. See a show at Teatro Colon. Visit the Museum of Fine Arts. Visit the parks in Palermo and Costanera Sur in Puerto Madero. You can see everything yourself on foot and using the subway but free walking tours are good to get historical information. Enjoy!

Liked: Loads! Fantastic city, lots to see and do. Very spacious, great parks, lots of historical buildings, nice docklands, good museums, great food!

Disliked: The graffiti and the rubbish - it really lets the city down. The pavements arent the best either!

Customer Travel Tip: Bring lots and lots of USD!!

Liked: Wonderful people, atmosphere, culture! Love learning Spanish, amazing nightlife, great weather...cool city all around.

Disliked: The inflation sucks if you're coming with pesos, but with dollars you're rich. Just have to be careful with your belongings in busy crowded areas but otherwise I've found it to be a comfortable and welcoming city.

Customer Travel Tip: It's much more expensive than quoted to get from the airport so price a cab over shuttle if there's 2 or more. Visit the cemetery & Caminito (get a cab in & out, it's a bit dodgy outside it) & if you fancy a night or two away then Colonia in Uruguay is just over an hour and is picture postcard stunning.

Liked: It's vibrant

Customer Travel Tip: The Argentine peso can be bought on the "black market" at the "dolar blue" rate. Bring your money in the form of US cash, preferably 100$ bill. You will get an awesome exchange rate and your trip will be much more inexpensive.

Liked: Lots of culture and street market/fairs. Also lots of shows and activities.

Disliked: Slightly dirty as a city.

City break Family Holiday Sightseeing & culture Visiting friends or family

Customer Travel Tip: Check out the small bars in San Telmo and Konex cultural city which hosts various concerts. Get the green city map or ask your hosts about some nice restaurants otherwise chances to walk in in a "tourist trap" is rather high. Get some Fredo ice cream.

Liked: I like the European vibe of the city. San Telmo, Recoleta and Palermo are quite nice neighbourhoods whit parcs, small cafes, handcrafts and occasionally street performers. I enjoyed walking around there a lot.

Disliked: The very crowdy tourist places with ridiculously overpriced restaurants and bad food. 2nd time in Buenost Aires I made sure to avoid Florida and Caminito.
