When in Buenos Aires, DO be sure to explore San Telmo. I found so many great little shops - especially shoe shops - where one could buy original & interesting designs. To fully appreciate the neighbourhood and its history, I would advise going with a...More

An interesting place to contrast with Recoleta: same city, different ends! Plaza Dorrego is pretty though being first thing in the morning I could see it was going to fill up with stalls. I suggest a morning stroll, pre 10am as the neighbourhood is waking...More

Great place to stroll, wonderful cafes and antique shops. It's a bit like Soho in NYC but more bohemian.

San Telmo
Characterized by cobblestones and narrow streets, San
Telmo is defined by the tango, the dance that made
Buenos Aires world-famous. Tango is a fusion of many
different cultures: a true child of immigration, much
like the city itself. Nowadays, it comes alive after
