5 hours layover in Aeroparque. Suggestions?

We will arrive at Aeroparque on a Sunday at 9:30 and our next flight only departs at 14:30.

Aeroparque seems to be very close to Palermo and Recoleta. Instead of spending the time in Duty Free, are these options doable in 3 or 4 hours?

1) If it's a sunny Sunday, taxi to Parque Tres de Febrero (Rosedal, Planetarium, Japanese gardens...)

2) If it's raining, taxi to MALBA.

Those were my first 2 thoughts. Any other options?

We have been in BA before, but not Recoleta or Palermo.

yes, if you have 3 or 4 hours you have time to do any of those things, only make sure to leave Recoleta or Palermo chico (where Malba is) with time to make your flight. The traffic can be bad sometimes.

I agree with Llana and Moreweird to leave the airport then enjoy a little more of BA.

In addition to your first two choices then there is alway the Sunday outdoor Feria or arts and crafts in Recoleta next the cemetary. Also, there are many restaurants,cafes, ice cream in this area.
