Buenos Aires

Enjoying my family in Buenos Aires, Argentina

Frederick, a HomeAway staffer, savors the flavors and sights of Buenos Aires

I know, there are a lot of things, that I can write about B.A., but it will all sound cliche's by now. So, I will go ahead and do a little recap on what we did, while my parents where in town. 

  • Enjoy cafe con leche with machiato, espresso and of course ( gelato ) outside a cafe and people watch.
  • Walk alongside Puerto Madero and cross the Puente de Mujer.
  • Head out to La Plata and Tigre for the day, and go for the 1 hr cruise on the river delta. If you had more time, you can go for the 4-6 hr tour, that will lead your cruise to Rio Plata.
  • Go downtown: Visit the Plaza San Martin, Obelisco, Plaza de Mayo, and the Casa Rosada. This is a perfect walking day.
  • See Evita’s grave and beautiful mausoleums at Recoleta Cemetary.
  • Visit la Boca neighborhood. (Stick to the main tourist streets.)
  • Go to San Telmo Flea Market on a Sunday, and just stroll to the main thoroughfares in Defesa and Plaza Dorrego.
  • Go and try some more restaurants in Microcentro, Palermo ( all its sub burroughs ) Recoleta, Belgrano (Barrio Chino)
  • Visit Parque Carlos Thays near the Jardin Zoologico. Go jogging in Plaza Hollanda, Jardin Japones, Ave Corrientes all the way to Parque Manuel Belgrano.
  • Shop at the boutiques in Palermo Viejo and stop by Plaza Serrano on a weekend.
