There are so many things to do outside in Buenos Aires. There are bike tours and hop on and bus tours. The city is massive it would take forever to walk it! Great outdoor city

We definitely loved BUE and all that the city can offer to the traveller. Sometimes we felt a little uneasy and worried about our belongings or the money we were carrying. The city has been suffering from a major increase in violence and robbery lately and you can see that all round.

What a great experience. Hotel Novotel arranged a small package (transportation and great tickets) for us. Security was excellent. You go through a number of police checks points before the stadium. No alcohol allowed in the secured area. The place was alive with music and excitement. Home team played poorly that night but it not diminish the experience. Would recommend... More

There are pretty bridges across the lake. Roller skating, cycling, horse drawn carriages, 4,6,and 8 persons peddling carriages along the road inside the park, all can... More

We had a wonderful day cruising the Tigre river. The day started by being met by a luxury car and driven to the marina. On boarding the launch we were introduced to the captain and the serving staff. We were greeted with a bottle of wine and cold snacks and the cruise started. We were the only customers although the... More

Staying in Retiro

Neighbourhood Profile
Retiro
Exquisite palaces and luxurious apartment buildings combine with art galleries and exclusive boutiques to make Retiro the perfect spot for those who enjoy sophistication. However, the non-stop foot traffic to and from Retiro train and bus terminals, accompanied by the myriad of trucks leaving and arriving at the port, mean this neighbourhood is never truly at rest. One minute you are walking down a street dotted with ornate mansions and luxurious shop windows and the next you find yourself surrounded by a sea of people racing to catch their train or bus. It is this juxtaposition of never-ending comings and goings and quiet, elegant luxury that defines Retiro, as well as Buenos Aires, a city where sharp contrasts are all around.
