You can feel the essence of Palermo at Oui Oui, with the hipsters drinking coffee, the tall trees outside, the cobblestone sidewalks. The French-inspired menu featurespain au chocolat, homemade scones, scrambled eggs, salads, and ginger lemonade....

Walking through the city of Buenos Aires, we came upon a small square with a crowd of people surrounding it. One quick peek at this couple dancing The Tango told us we'd found something special. I've never seen two people so passionate about their...

Recoleta, Buenos Aires, Argentina
not your typical place to visit whilst on holidays but this cemetery is actually one of BA's leading attraction. I absolutely loved getting lost in this city of tombs, not knowing what the next corner would bring me. well worth a visit
Bolívar 970, C1066 AAT, Buenos Aires, Argentina
Nothing better than to walk amidst the stalls of San Telmo market on a crisp Sunday. The smell of parrilla wafting through the air, inter tangled with the ever-present sound of tango. And chatter. Nothing you need to buy. Everything you need to...

Buenos Aires, Bolívar 160, C1066 CABA, Argentina
Palermo’s Pequeña Italia (Little Italy) was born when a group of guys started serving good food in a tiny trattoria with graffiti-style art on the walls. Try the homemade fusilli or the spaghetti alla puttanesca and a glass or two of Malbec....

The attractive San Telmo barrio began as an upscale area before tenement living took over. It’s back big-time now, helped by its famous antique flea market. On Sundays tourists and locals descend upon the Plaza Dorrego and its side lanes for...

The train in Buenos Aires is clean and takes you pretty much anywhere on the grid for less than 2 pesos. It’s a great deal! Cab’s are extremely cheap in the city and there's no real need to take the train, but for some reason I think hopping on...

Taxis in BA are not cheap. They start at 9.50 pesos (almost $2 USD) and then go up. From Palermo Hollywood to San Telmo it cost about 75 or 80 pesos ($16 USD) - and it takes a long time. Instead learn the subway system and go anywhere for a flat...
This is probably one of the main tourist attraction in BA. The buildings are great and the vibe is cool too. I found the crafts markets absolutely amazing if you are after quality, authentic, one of a kind crafts - do look out for the rip-offs too...
