Too big, too expensive, and too polluted. While there are many interesting activities here, cut your time in Buenos Aires short to visit more relaxed cities such as Mendoza, Cordoba, and Salta. One advantage here is that more girls speak English.
There are many neighborhoods to stay at, from the rich (Palermo, Recoleta) to the working class (San Telmo). If you want to stay where the action is and get the bit city life experience, head straight to the microcenter. The nightlife is Palermo is overhyped, and even if you are staying there you still need to take a taxi to the clubs. San Telmo is nice if you want to sleep.

In Palermo, go to Piccolo near JL Borges and Uriate for excellent pastries and empanada lunches. Look for the huge sign. When you want to spy on girls doing aerobics, go to Always Gym on Paraguay between JL Borges and Gurruchaga. For butter soft steak, visit Don Julio on Guatemala and Gurruchaga.
San Telmo has rather ho-hum food options. For cheap tango shows, inquire at Centro Cultural Torquato Tasso (Defensa 1575). Some nights have free shows. Also recommended is a trip to La Boca’s touristy area by the river. Watch tango shows for the drop of spare change in the hat.
Plaza Serrano in Palermo has a dozen bars, but they are of the sit-down variety. Mint on Friday is good if you like cocaine. Otherwise take the 30-minute cab ride to Sunset for their foam party. On Saturday, Crobar is the obvious, somewhat reliable choice next to the transsexual park. Niceto is a sausage fest with good house music on Thursday. If you like to spend lots of money, go to the clubs in Puerto Madero, specifically Asia de Cuba. Compared to Cordoba or Salta, the nightlife here was massively overhyped. You pay four times more for less. The girls speak more English but there are just as messed up in the head as the other cities.
Tango Backpackers (Paraguay 4601 in Palermo)
$12/night for dorm. Party hostel with enough people to find to go out with. Can be annoying with all the young guys trying to get on the girls. Has breakfast, barely adequate kitchen, and wireless internet.
Extremo del Sur (Dr. Enrique Finochietto 473 in San Telmo)
$10/night for dorm. Modern and small hostel (20 beds) that is a great place for catching up on sleep. It felt like I was staying at a guesthouse. Has breakfast, kitchen, wireless internet. The owners go out of their way to make your stay a good one.
Buenos Aires On The Blog
In a Buenos Aires restaurant I dissed an old homeless lady and ran into her a week later.
I ignored her, brushed her aside like she was nobody. You have people coming at you with some pitch so many times a day that it’s hard not to develop a shield to it. Continue Reading
In another post I complained about how Argentine girls don’t give eye contact compared to girls from other culture.
I was sitting in a cafe when I locked eye contact with a girl for two seconds. The first thought to my head was, “Not from Argentina.” I walked by her table of friends and they were speaking Hebrew. Continue Reading
