Is meant to be main tourist area but is full of bars that are actually brothels. I know it sounds hard to believe but escorts wait for clients to have a drink before approaching them. New Port is a perfect example.

This cemetery is different from any cemetery I've been to because it's almost like city streets, built up with the graves and mausoleums on both sides. You can look inside many of them and see the coffins, which is unusual. It was quite hot when...More

We've stayed in Recoleta a couple times and find the location to be central. We like to walk so getting to Plaza Mayo or Palermo was not a problem

When our guide told us we were visiting a cemetery we were unsure to be honest! It was very interesting though. We were there about half an hour albeit in the rain. We visited Evita’s morsoleum. Worth a visit.

We heard it from many locals that Recoleta was the place to sleep! Very safe. Within walking distance of many shops. It also house the cemetery of the rich. Have a drink at the Park Hyatt.

Recoleta is a lovely old money area of the city. It has high end designer shops. You can walk and find quaint coffee shops as well. Don’t try and negotiate in the shops. You’ll embarrass yourself.

the legacy of its aristocratic past, Recoleta is the

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
