Calle Florida, Buenos Aires
(2.4/5 based on 2,800+ reviews on the web)
Known for its chaotic mix of high-end retailers and street hawkers, Calle Florida makes for an interesting Buenos Aires shopping spree. The pedestrianized street, just north of the central Plaza de Mayo, has gained a worldwide reputation for its slightly dubious "unofficial money exchangers," who call out "cambio" in Spanish as you pass. Keep walking north of Avenue Cordoba and you'll suddenly find a host of leather shops, offering distinctive locally made products. Take a moment to appreciate many talented street performers on your walk. Put Calle Florida into our Buenos Aires trip itinerary builder and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • I guess it is the Quinta Avenida of Buenos Aires, considering that it takes you to basically all sides along its promenade of shopping, street vendors and the incessant singing of people who sell dollars.

  • It's a long street with several shops at prices well above the other places. I don't recommend eating anywhere in the region, because it will pay too expensive for the quality. Many people offering the purchase and sale of foreign exchange, which says a lot about the region and its regulars. For those who do not is very accustomed to big cities, take extra care in this region with scam artists and pickpockets, despite not having seen anything too much. It is interesting to walk around and meet.

  • We loved this small street because of the nice shops you can find there, great atmosphere and lively environment. Be aware that some bad guys are also there waiting for a chance to get an easy wallet....  more »
