I am traveling to BA from the 28th of Nov to the 10th of Dec. What are the must-dos? Also, any recommendations on where to stay. I'm a woman & traveling alone so safety is important & I'm a little old for a hostel;)

Right now I'm planning on going to the Argentine Open polo tournament (reason I'm going) but would love other suggestions. Am open to anything really - museums, clubs, etc.

Also - beaches, day trips, etc.

Also - would love restaurant recommendations, etc.


actually - tell me everything :-)

Hello Rachel, here is a very interesting Tigre tour that you can try. Please read Santiago's post. It is a very unusual, not-turisty visit. Although I haven't done this myself I have every reason to believe it is worthwhile. His website can be found at www.barbacharters.com.ar.

You can find some information on the most interesting Buenos Aires attractions on this page. And there is more information here. For free activities you can always visit the Buenos Aires city government website which publishes a monthly calendar of events. Below are some of their links...

13) Useful data: http://www.bue.gov.ar/informacion/

I think you will be happy with the Art hotel. www.arthotel.com.ar/

My favorite restaurants in Buenos Aires are:
* Ligure (awesome desserts and don't forget to order a filet mignon).
* Los Chilenos (for 'matambrito')
* Tomo 1

But there are so, so many great places to eat that it will not be practical to list them all here. The above are just personal choices. You can research Buenos Aires restaurants here: www.restaurant.com.ar
