Experience The Best of Buenos Aires - Adventuretects

Experience The Best of Buenos Aires

Buenos Aires is a city like no other. Famed for being the “Paris of South America”, you will be amazed by its bustling cafes, romantic parks, rich culture, and dreamy architecture.

 

For most travelers, Buenos Aires is the entryway to Argentina and will set the tone for the rest of your unforgettable South American experience. The city that never sleeps will enchant you with its many weekend ferias or markets, great food, historic sites, plazas, and museums.

Adventuretects has the perfect itinerary for you, and it starts right here:

1. La Boca & Caminito Street

La Boca is a neighborhood in Buenos Aires. Today, a photographer’s dream, this vibrant part of Buenos Aires will leave you breathless. From racy tango sessions on the streets to an explosion of color, culture, and food. The most action, however, is happening in Caminito – the famous “open-air museum”.

A bit of history goes a long way. Though La Boca had a less than glamorous start, it’s managed to create a bohemian dream. Originally, La Boca served as the local shipyard. Dockworkers, who were mostly from Italy, were too poor to afford anything more than narrow shanty houses and made use of bits of leftover paint to stop any rust.

After a cultural revival in the ’50s, the area became home to many local artists and evolved into what it is today. They took inspiration from what it was, and today you can still see the corrugated iron walls and colorful paint jobs. It is by no means rich in terms of money, but it definitely is in terms of the arts.

Make sure to snap a few pictures of the colorful houses in La Boca and head to Caminito to take a walk through history. Buy art as a souvenir and to support the locals, have some of the best steaks in one of the small Italian eateries (head off the main street to get the best value for price) and tango on Caminito like nobody’s watching.

2. San Telmo Market

This isn’t your usual Weekend Market. San Telmo is famed for being something of a mix between a functioning market and a lively street party. Along the 13 cobblestone streets of San Telmo, you’ll see a neighborhood transformed as soon as the first stall starts setting up.

With its unique antiques, souvenirs, original art pieces and energy, the San Telmo market attracts over 12 000 curios visitors each week.

This Argentinian street affair is not to be missed.

3. El Rosedal De Palermo

If you’re a true romantic, don’t miss this side of Buenos Aires. Enjoy a scenic walk through the beautiful rose gardens, read poetry written by the famous poets’ whos statues line the walkways, and relax on the grass next to the lake as the locals do.

If you want to have a truly authentic experience, take a picnic blanket, round up your friends and books, some good Argentinian street food, a warm maté to share and book a paddleboat. You can spend the whole day exploring, lazying about and if it gets late, check out the latest show at the planetarium.

4. Recoleta Cemetery

Recoleta cemetery has to be one of the most unusual cemeteries in the world. There are around 6400 graves, but the strange thing is that they’re all, for the most part, above ground. It seems a trend was started and each new grave tried to outcompete the former. What we love the most about this cemetery is the diversity, you’ll find everything from Greek temples to Baroque cathedrals paying homage to the dead.
There are also quite a few legends buried here, like the controversial first lady Eva “Evita” Peron. Undoubtedly, you’ll find some locals paying their respects at her grave. Spend a few hours here and pay your own respects to the dead, even if it’s only by admiring their final resting place.

5. Walk Around the Famous Plaza de Mayo

As the political heart of Argentina, we couldn’t leave out the Plaza de Mayo and the stunning Casa Rosada. Walking through this historical site, you get a sense of the days gone by. It serves as a reminder of the fight, rebellion, and everlasting hope Argentina has.

Walking around you’ll pass the Casa Rosada – or Pink House – the official office of the President of Argentina; you’ll also see the Cabildo, which use to be the town council hall back in the colonial era and now serves as a museum; the city’s main Cathedral is also along the Plaza de Mayo.

Many locals, tourists, and travelers have spent a lovely afternoon just walking by, relaxing in the plaza and going into the historic buildings, you won’t regret it either.
Buenos Aires is simply unforgettable, and what makes it so memorable is the rich history, the friendly local porteños (people of the port) and mesmerizing culture.

With our top five recommendations, you’re sure to get the best experience of Buenos Aires, if you’re looking for something more specific, perfectly tailored for you… Adventuretects is always ready to help.
