Husband and I are making our first trip to B.A in mid-late December. Probably 6-7 days...Arriving AM on Sunday, Dec. 16 or Monday, Dec. 17 and departing AM Sat., Dec 22 or 11pm Sunday, Dec. 23 (only flight on that day), or possibly Mon., Dec 24 at 10am.
From my research, it seemed like it would be a "waste" to be in B.A. on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day as most everything will be closed by the afternoon of Dec. 24-- that is why we decided to depart before those days. Does this make sense?
That being said, my research tells me that there is much to recommend B.A. on SUNDAYS in particular, including the Feria de Antiquedades in San Telmo, the Feria de Plaza Francia in Palermo or Recoleta (I forget which) and also La Feria de Matadoros in the western suburb. These are all experiences it seems we must have. Do you think the Feria de la Matadoros will take place on the Sunday before Christmas? Is it worth going out there and are the other fairs worth trying to make our flights accommodate being in B.A. on a Sunday?
