I just wandered through the street fair, tons, and tons, of stuff; some nice artisanal crafts, expect no deals on the good stuff, and tons of souvenir trinkets. Very crowded, very lively street scene, excellent people watching.

Loved our stay in San Telmo! It was a nice and safe neighborhood and we we're fortunate enough to be able to check out the Sunday Market as well as be there for the Indian festival. Very vibrant neighborhood with lots of great restaurants.

Tons of restaurants here and places to grab a drink. Beautiful area. Like other people have said, yes there are Hipsters in this area. My hostel was close by and do not regret staying in this area. Highly recommended, and safe to walk around.

I was not impressed by San Telmo and the plaza. They host an antique fair on the weekends and it was basically a bunch of spots selling expensive trash. The area is incredibly crowded and restaurants are overpriced. I would skip it. Nothing to see...More

BA has a strange way of NOT taking care of its past. This is what is left of old BA. Just walk around and marvel at some of the finest everyday buildings of yore.

If it´s a nice day, plan on hours of casual strolling through this delightful district. Stop in a bar for good food and great atmosphere.

Strolling through the San Telmo markets is a perfect way to spend a Sunday afternoon. There is plenty of stalls that line the streets for as long as the eye can see. There is plenty of things to look at or be entertained by the...More

Sorry but I have no idea. I loved San Telmo. I saw nothing of Greenwich Village in this area except pure Buenos Aires.

Expensive for a small show, my experience is they were not friendly at all. It's only one pair dancing in between your meal. My experience came with unfriendly service. For a small show you overpay.

Unless younare a fan of the movie Happy Days, I would look elsewhere. There is a wide variety of places to experience tango. Being a tourist guide myself, I recommend shows with no dinner. They are cheaper and you can eat... More
