    The trip to the taderos, 30-40, capitel minutes. The quarter itself, but the folk experience that occurs every weekend (only on Sundays) worth the hassle to bhagaa. Lots of stalls with clothing, ceramics and musical instruments. Some kiosks selling cheeses, honey or bakery products. Some food instead. Recommend a beach-style fried Betty Tucumán or Salta, made on the spot in front of the eye of the beholder. We liked the Betty. The berlins are fair. During this time shottano between the stalls, one after another, local bands and singers in folk songs. The audience share of authentic costumes, danced the Samba and check with a light in his eyes. As there seems to be a captive audience that songs and fan dance and back every week. Beauty of a Sunday. And, unlike many ה"פסאודו artsanl" exhibition in the capital every weekend here is the real deal. Don't give up.

    The market takes place in the Mataderos neighborhood all Sunday is excellent to know a little of the culture of the country especially in the North of Argentina - food, crafts, music and dance. Despite the fact that he is far from downtown, it makes up for a taxi to go and spend a very bonn day.

    After four trips to Bs As Finally I could know her... I had read and seen that it had many attractions... we looked at rare at the hotel when we have that we would... is quite far away and everyone gave us survival tips... went by metro (subway) and then by taxi... You can go visit it and come back with life... It is a fair of crafts and food products, cute while visiting the Center dance couples... some dressed as gauchos... would never go...

    The Mataderos Fair features traditional argentine foods, it showcases folkloric dances and music, and offers people (mainly tourists) a chance to see/buy crafts made by local artisans(anything from dulce de leche, to liquers,knits, leather goods, statuettes etc). It does get especially crowded on the weekends, but thats when all the special events take place.

    Super cultural and fun fair. People dance, sing, and just have a good time. There's food and many vendors. You'll see a lot of the same, but there are also unique arts for fair prices. The MC is very spirited

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.
