Boedo, Buenos Aires

Get a feel for an authentic Buenos Aires barrio in the traditional working-class neighborhood of Boedo. Massively influential in tango culture, the area features numerous tango bars dotted along its otherwise quiet streets. Visiting the barrio's "corners"--cafes that have traditionally been gathering places for tango singers, dancers, socialists, and writers--will give you insight into the city's cultural history and contemporary pulse. You'll also have your pick of places to eat, including a number of European-style pubs. Put Boedo and other Buenos Aires attractions into our Buenos Aires trip website , and watch your holiday take shape.

  • It is a neighborhood that borders on Caballito, Almagro, Parque Chacabuco, Parque Patricios and San Cristobal. The downtown area is located in Av. San Juan and Boedo. It is not a tourist area but is a neighborhood without masks and you will find the average Buenos Aires.

  • I can't believe the barbarities that say about dangerous neighborhood. Here, I live way at any time. Never an ugly face. There is much less vandalism than in any other district. You may park there is surveillance. It is Woody, uninhabited and a little dark parts further Center but still, nothing dangerous

  • We reached boedo following recommendation tripadoiser, and figure out what exactly the uniqueness of the place. It is a drab neighborhood, similar to dozens in Buenos Aires, flaking facades and sleepy streets. Area of residence. The only animal Man Street where he focused on Av Boedo between AV. San juan y Av Independencia. We arrived at the site where the detailed explanation and a map of the historic buildings along so we could enjoy the visit. (To type in Google: que hacer en buenos aires el barrio de boedo) along saved restaurants and cafes in parcels, not only survived and left a sign on the front of the House. Some changed them into another institution. One of huadu, which is theatre going up the stairs from the main street. Inside art and newspaper clippings and even program baby name of unknown actress named Eva Duarte (who later became Evita Peron). A small theater there, she appeared in the beginning. A tiny Theatre (60 places) and is still active. Received the US oriented man case, which is the best and the one place that explain and describe courtesy of the history of the theatre. In recent years, the municipality and local activists are trying to improve the street-add billboards in vintage style, the sculptures of local artists but ... There is still no place for the appeal and uniqueness. My recommendation-if you have a lot of time in Buenos Aires to visit swing and a meal in one of the restaurants/cafes (recommended: don boedo). But if the touching briefly go to the real thing, the old district of San Telmo.

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. For boutique establishments and international five-star hotels, head to Palermo, Recoleta, or Puerto Madero, upscale neighborhoods drawing the majority of foreign visitors.
