Buenos Aires

iStock International
The most architecturally handsome capital in Latin America (and possibly the hemisphere) Buenos Aires is a brash, exciting, 3-million-person jumble of contradictions, its 50-some neighborhoods sprawling over nearly 80 square miles where Argentina's extensive pampas (grasslands) meet the Río de la Plata where it opens into the Atlantic.

Buenos Aires Neighborhoods

La Boca

Experience heart-rattling pasión at a Boca Juniors soccer match or mosey up the colorful Caminito, where quirky statues of icons Eva Peron, Carlos Gardel, and Diego Maradona greet visitors.

San Telmo

Cobblestone streets, antique shops and centuries-old architecture create a vintage vibe, while funky boutiques, thriving galleries, and buzzing late-night bars make the scene.

Puerto Madero

Stroll or bike along the loft-lined docks, dine al fresco, and marvel at Santiago Calatrava’s gleaming bridge, Puente de La Mujerall with the city as a backdrop.

Microcentro

With historic tango and literary hangouts, the proud Obelisk, and glitzy theater row within its borders, this bustling business district should not be written off.

Abasto

Retrace the footsteps of tango legends and scout out the burgeoning art and music scene.

Recoleta

Hop cultural attractions, count dogs, and shop with the ultra chic in this tony barrio, refueling at a stylish sidewalk cafe or heladería (ice cream parlor) along the way.

Palermo Chico/Palermo Viejo

Swanky eateries and trendy clubs complement lush parks, the city zoo, and polo grounds, making this the “it” zone for glitterati and families at play. Within Palermo Viejo's boundaries, you'll find the bustling artsy-boho area of Palermo Soho and quiet Palermo Hollywood, where there's been a rise in production and photo studios.
