Shopping & Banking Hours


Buenos Aires offers excellent, high-quality shopping for leather goods, gems and brand-name products such as Gucci, Dior, etc. Other items to look for include rugs, gaucho souvenirs, sheepskin products, wines, guitars, art, handicrafts, yerba mate paraphernalia such as gourds and bombillas (metal straws with a filter at the bottom) and vicuna products (high-quality wool from a llamalike creature). You also may want to get a pair of gaucho trousers—bombachas—or perhaps a poncho. In Buenos Aires, stroll down Calle Florida and Avenida Santa Fe for upscale stores, where leather goods and custom-made suits are a good buy. There are also many markets and department stores for bargain shoppers. Low-key bargaining may get you a better price outside of department stores or on any big-ticket item.
