I liked this because of the city life and the great subway station at Las Heras. Close to many parks free museums and cafes. I stayed at the Dazzler which was a good price,but not well run. The staff seemed overworked and check out was at 10 A.M.

You could use it as your base with plenty of living and dining options, parks, pedestrian-friendly streets, and proximity to the famous cemetery where Evita is interred.

The main attraction of the Recoleta neighborhood is the cemetary. It is behind high walls and contains thousands of crypts where wealthy Argentinians housed their deceased relatives. I can't say buried because many or most of the caskets are above ground, placed on shelving in closed tombs owned and maintained by various families. These tombs mostly have windows so you... More

Everyone goes to see Eva Peron's tomb. Look for the family tomb for the Duarte family (was not allowed to be buried in a tomb under the Peron name).

Neighbourhood Profile
Characterised by the French-style mansions which are the legacy of its aristocratic past, Recoleta is the true “Paris of the South.” Walking around this neighbourhood is an experience like no other in Buenos Aires: its streets are lined with elegant apartment buildings, exclusive boutiques, and former mansions turned into high-end hotels and embassies, which exude an alluring air of sophistication and class. You'll also find a rich cultural scene centred on the National Museum of Fine Arts, the National Library, and the Recoleta Cultural Center; as well as some great shopping spots, like the Buenos Aires Design Mall with an artists' fair set up in Plaza Francia every weekend.
