Nice area of Buenos Aires. Plan your visit on sunday to see all the stalls outside. Lots of bars have tango dancers than, and you can see them in the main square (Plaza Dorego) as well. Not so interesting on weekdays.

I've been here many times but it had been several years since I was there. It's gotten a little touristy and I was disappointed this time -- it's lost some of its historical authenticity. But worth it if you've never been because of significance of...More

San Telmo is definitely worth a visit, large busy street market selling lots of local wares, locals singing. We enjoyed the barbeque with live music!

I was super scared of going to the market, but it was super lovely, lots to see, and feels still very genuine, not a tourist trap at all. The stalls now have a ton of cute foodie options too...

Telmo is defined by the tango, the dance that made
Buenos Aires world-famous. Tango is a fusion of many
different cultures: a true child of immigration, much
like the city itself. Nowadays, it comes alive after
dark in the milongas (dance parties) attended by both
locals and visitors alike, who dance until the wee

Sorry but I have no idea. I loved San Telmo. I saw nothing of Greenwich Village in this area except pure Buenos Aires.

Expensive for a small show, my experience is they were not friendly at all. It's only one pair dancing in between your meal. My experience came with unfriendly service. For a small show you overpay.
