    The Avenue looks like a healthy São Paulo, filled with trees and small squares along the entire route. MANY people and cars passing in every way imaginable but all very well coordinated by traffic lights and pedestrian lanes. The tracks only work when the traffic light is closed for cars to be an avenue. The Middle tracks are exclusive to the bus lines and almost all the lights have a fail-safe for pedestrians have better sense in time of the crossing.

    Avenida 9 de Julio is huge and wide. To meet Buenos Aires it is impossible not to be her, because there are attractions like the obelisk and the Teatro Colón.

Where to stay in Buenos Aires

Buenos Aires offers an impressive selection of budget-friendly and mid-range lodgings, as well as pricier, more luxurious options for visitors who don't mind splashing out. Good rooms are scattered across town, but your best bet for economical hostels remains San Telmo, a neighborhood on the edge of downtown.
