Does anyone have any tips or recommendations for a short stay in Buenos Aires? We are passing through on the way south (tour of Patagonia & Tierra del Fuego) and only really have a two days in the city, at the end of next month (April). Ideally we would like to be in a quirky, boutique hotel with a bit of Argentine character, in an area with some vibrancy and interest, but also handy to get to the main sights (like Casa Rosada or the Colón Theatre etc…) I’m thinking San Telmo area would be good, also being close to la Boca and the Caminito Street museum and local markets, although the books I have seem to push Palermo as the nicest area for tourists to stay. We fly into the International airport (Ezeiza) and out again from the domestic (Jorge Newbery), so anywhere in the central area between the two suits us well.
So, if you can help with ideas of what to see and the best area to stay in, or can help with a bit of local knowledge that could enliven our stay, this would be much appreciated. Thanks all.
