  • The ESMA detention center is a civic duty. Visits are guided, they show things that were there, but not in a morbid way. You must know the history!

  • Place a must for all who love history, especially those who are angry with the dictatorship. It was impossible not to be moved, mainly, to get to the room where pregnant women gave birth and were separated from their children to be born. Sad ... but it is essential to know the history of each country. A complete and indispensable Museum.

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.
