Really enjoyed this site and the walk through with our guide, truly amazing crypts with the obvious pull being that of Eva Peron Duarte. A place one must visit while in Buenos Aires.

The city has trained many guides and I enjoyed a delightful, English speaking young lady to seemed to anticipate my interests. She is not allowed to take tips. Just be at the Kiosk at the front of the Recoleta.

A great place to admire the best of Buenos Aires architecture. Not a lot of options to choose from in terms of restaurants (a lot of american chain restaurants like friday's, mc donalds, hard rock café, eg).

Very interesting. This tour helped pull a lot of Argentine history together for us tour guide was helpful and had lots good information. Only problem was that he went on toooo much about politics (very one sided)! Did this as part of a city walking tour and only spent about an hour there (which was enough for us).

Nowadays you find several empty storefronts that were restaurants a few years ago. The closing of Munich restaurant a few weeks ago (right next to La Biela, the most traditional cafe in Recoleta) has left a big void. Still, the cemetery never loses its charms, the parks and trees are awesome, the walks very pleasant.

I liked this because of the city life and the great subway station at Las Heras. Close to many parks free museums and cafes. I stayed at the Dazzler which was a good price,but not well run. The staff seemed overworked and check out was at 10 A.M.

You could use it as your base with plenty of living and dining options, parks, pedestrian-friendly streets, and proximity to the famous cemetery where Evita is interred. Traffic isn't that bad except for the rush hour but I'd recommend walking. Excellent for watching the locals go about their daily lives, kids to-ing and from-ing to/from school with their hockey sticks.... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Recoleta
Characterised by the French-style mansions which are the legacy of its aristocratic past, Recoleta is the true “Paris of the South.” Walking around this neighbourhood is an experience like no other in Buenos Aires: its streets are lined with elegant apartment buildings, exclusive boutiques, and former mansions turned into high-end hotels and embassies, which exude an alluring air of sophistication and class. You'll also find a rich cultural scene centred on the National Museum of Fine Arts, the National Library, and the Recoleta Cultural Center; as well as some great shopping spots, like the Buenos Aires Design Mall with an artists' fair set up in Plaza Francia every weekend.
