Buenos Aires - Post Report Question and Answers

What are some interesting/fun things to do in the area? Can you recommend any “hidden gems"?

If it's your life's desire, it's probably the easiest base from which to visit Antarctica (but note it's CRAZY expensive). Any other of the major cities in the country are worth a visit, as are Chile, Uruguay, Paraguay or Brazil all easily reached on flights for a long weekend or week's vacation. Not much in driving distance is amazing for a typical weekend. - Jul 2020

There are great parks all over the city. One of our favorites is the science park next to the Science Museum in Palermo Soho. But I also like walking around the Rosedal. We love taking walking trips around San Telmo or Recoleta or Palermo Soho. I kind of love the Mercado de las Pulgas. I really love the streets where I do the shopping every day: Scalabrini Ortiz, Cerviño, Ugarteche, Cabello. This is my world right now, and I love it. I know all of the merchants, and they know me, and that makes the place feel very homey. - Jul 2019

There is something for anyone. Tons of recreational activities throughout the city. The city is also very walkable and has bike lanes on many big roads. - Jun 2015

Take a day trip to Tigre, walk or bike through Constanera Sur (in Puerto Madero), go over to Uruguay or an Argentinian beach (Pinamar is one a lot of people like), eat good steak, etc. - Jan 2015

Too many to count. Check the usual tourist books and websites. - Aug 2014

Walking, having coffee, playing tennis, not too many museums. - Aug 2011

There are lots of parks where the locals like to hang out and picnic. Many boutique shops, sidewalk cafes, casinos, polo fields, cultural activities, etc... - May 2011

There is a never-ending list of things to do from plays to art exhibits to restaurants to days in the campo to boating to..well, really your imagination is the limit. - Jul 2008
