Eat steak for breakfast, lunch and dinner and then forever be disappointed in eating steak elsewhere.

Also, eat lots of Empanadas and drink lots of Quilmes. Oh yeah, the ice cream shops are great too.

I liked La Cabrera very much, but I was last there several years ago so maybe it's not as good. Lovely city, have fun.

What are the must do places / restaurants?

Planning for Nov 2015. Thinking two weeks, prolly 4 or 5 days in BA, then a few days at Igazu Falls, then off to Rio for 4/5 days if I can make that work.
I used to live there.

Your trip sounds just right and is exactly what my mum did when I lived there - Iguazu is must-see and Rio is amazing.

Get a hotel in Recoleta or Palermo and you won't go far wrong.

I'll give you a restaurants list closer to the time but there are a ton

I did three months in South America from January to March.

Loved BA, of course. Loved Mendoza (wine country). Loved Rio. If I can convince my wife to move there, we will.

Echo the recommendation on La Cabrera. And go and see some polo. It's only 'on' during certain times of year. But we went to what seemed like a mega tourist trap, where you pay $100 for a day's 'polo experience' - it was absolutely brilliant.




Go to watch either Boca or River:

Go to Mendoza



Go to Rio




Enjoy BA




I'll stop now.

Recoletta is okay for hotels I suppose. But personally I'd stay in either San Telmo, Microcentre or Palermo.

I'd avoid hotels and have a good review of hostals or B&B, and see if you can get a private room with private bath. Lot cheaper, alot more fun, and a lot more relaxed for breakfast times and making a cup of tea at 2am etc..

Palermo has funky bars and restaurants, San Telmo traditional faded style, Boca is good to visit but get a taxi in and out (can be dodgy there). In Palermo be sure to visit the parks (there's one full of cats), and the Zoo is nice. Take a train out to El Tigre. You can also take boat rides along La Plata. El tigre has a military museum with stuff about The Falklands. You should go to the Eva Peron museum - and check out the modal of national socialism that Peronism was.

San Telmo, Palerm, Microcentre etc. is all about walking around. The cafes are great for coffee and quiches and the like. As a man, sit outside with sunglasses on and enjoy the view.

I would have to have a think about restaurants, because it's been about 4 years.

Economic nonsense under Cristina Fernandez means BA is not cheap anymore. I certainly wouldn't be bothered about buying souvenirs, leather etc. Save your cash for eating and drinking out.

You can take a ferry to Colonia or Montevideo. You can even visit the town of Fray Bentos in Uruguay if tinned meat products tickle your nostalgia button.

Not when I was out there, most of the locals are bemused to what you doing over there and just want to talk football!

Fantastic city. Great people.

Reckon if I ever won the lottery it's one place I'd happily move to for a while and just enjoy life without any real stress.

Bit like NYC where everyone has their own fav things to do. But I'd recommend the boca ground tour (stadium is a concrete jungle) but funny enough the club shop is far better than some I've seen in the uk, funny that...

Our hotel was opposite La Recoleta Cemetery, where evita tombstone is. It's very weird when you walk round loooking at all the tombstones , some are kept up in wonderful condition, the other you can literally see bones inside!

Palmero is good for the bar scene. Bit wierd to see a town centre at 4 in the morning without any old bill or bouncers running around.

We went into the pampas for the day which was bang on. I'd recommend doing colonia just for the passport stamp and say you been to ur r gay...small historical town. Get the fast seacat though and not the slow ferry which takes an age.

Apart from that eat your body weight in steak every night and neck gallons of melbec!
