Buenos Aires Tourism: Best of Buenos Aires
A cosmopolitan city that dazzles with architecture, dance, and up-all-night urban life
The birthplace of tango is, like the dance itself, captivating, seductive and bustling with electric energy. Atmospheric old neighbourhoods are rife with romantic restaurants and thumping nightlife, and Buenos Aires' European heritage is evident in its architecture, boulevards and parks. Cafe Tortoni, the city's oldest bar, will transport you back to 1858, and the spectacular Teatro Colon impresses just as it did in 1908. Latin America's shopping capital offers the promise of premium retail therapy along its grand, wide boulevards.

Tackling Buenos Aires Like a Pro
Buenos Aires is a massive city with sights spread all around town, including natural reserves, parks, and plazas—not to mention historical points of interest, famed restaurants, and architectural masterpieces. Many visitors might find themselves racing all over town to get it all in. But trust me when I say, Buenos Aires is not a city to be rushed. As a Trip Designer for Reco, I have a tried-and-true approach to make the most of this city!
Michelle Grimaud, Buenos Aires, Argentina
- Narda Comedor373Here’s a tip: Hidden in the residential neighborhood of Belgrano is one of the city’s best-kept secrets. Narda Comedor is for brunching, lunching, and all things lounging. Don’t limit yourself to one dish—the best way to enjoy is with an array of small plates to share.
- Comarca Las Liebres Barrio Restaurante Hotel281Another excellent side trio, Colonia del Sacramento offers history with a view. Once you’ve explored its UNESCO center, prepare for the lunch of a lifetime in Los Liebres’ tranquil organic garden. Then do as the locals do and sit back with a yerba mate in hand.
- Narbona Wine Lodge - Relais & Chateaux423One of the best things about Buenos Aires is how easily you can hop in and out of it. Narbona is the perfect weekend getaway accessible via ferry or motorboat. Roam the vineyards, taste the wines and cheeses, but most importantly, do some deep relaxing in the sleepy countryside of Uruguay.
- La Catedral Club211Looking for that perfectly authentic tango experience? One word—milonga. La Catedral isn’t the fanciest but it is one-hundred percent real. With nightly activities, classes, and performances, this is the perfect place to socialize like a true Porteño. Bonus points if you catch a glimpse of some independent artist performers while you’re here!
- Pasaje de la Defensa85Don’t make the mistake of just wandering past Pasaje de La Defensa. It’s worth dedicating an entire afternoon to exploration here. Past the entrance, the former mansion unfolds into a collection of pop-up shops and small galleries where you can lose hours just wandering.
- Caseros292After you’ve done a bit of tasting around the San Telmo Market, come to Caseros to rest your feet and indulge in a proper lunch. Located on the elegant Calle Caseros deep within San Telmo, this is THE spot for homestyle lunches on the patio.
- Mercado de San Telmo1,167A timeless classic, the Mercado de San Telmo is an essential part of the cityscape. Taste, smell, and feel your way through this long-standing open-air market. With antique shops dotted throughout, this is the place for everything from collectables to traditional foods. Bonus if you’re there on a Sunday when the entire neighborhood comes to life for a weekly fair.
- Anafe205Even as an underground “closed-door restaurant,” Anafe was impressing Buenos Aires with its innovative fresh approach. Now that their doors are wide open, this has become the go-to place for well balanced, creative meals with the atmosphere to match.
- Roux1,110Vacations are all about those leisurely lunches where you get lost in local flavors, and Roux is just the place to experience that. Whether you order an appetizer or a full-on three-course extravaganza, you’ll be met with an explosion of well-crafted flavors.
- Museo de Arte Latinoamericano de Buenos Aires8,926The MALBA is an absolute must when in Buenos Aires. For art-lovers, this is the place to spend a mellow afternoon admiring their seasonal installations. If you’re on a longer stay in the city, set up a membership before your arrival and get special access to membership dinners and events. They’re the perfect way to mingle with locals and travelers alike.
- La Alacena Trattoria249Come to La Alacena for homemade dishes and an afternoon of primo people-watching. The freshly made pasta and crisp, refreshing drinks are the perfect thing for fueling up before exploring the neighborhood.
- Alvear Palace Hotel2,355If you’re the type that swoons for old-school traditional lusciousness, the Alvear Palace will be your type of hotel. It also has one of the best setups in the city, with a location in the bull’s-eye of Recoleta, views of Plaza Francia, and Recoleta Cemetery in walking distance!
- Be Jardín Escondido by Coppola150Every savvy traveler needs a good home base. Smack in the middle of bohemian-chic Palermo, Jardin Escondido is the perfect option for those wanting to be close to everything. From tasting menus to more casual eats, this cozy boutique hotel is romantic by nature.
