  • It is always nice to visit the Mataderos fair weekends, you can find things more unusual, rare and spectacular, and nor which to speak what they can eat, all very good and very fresh the esan doing in your sight. In addition if you dare you can dance folklore up to fall exhausted, and also see some spectacular races of rings. Definitely highly recommended, and see something completely indigenous you won't see anywhere else. Do not miss it.

  • A must do when in Buenos Aires. The fair is on every Sunday. About an hour out of Recoleta. The best way there is by bus. Amazing food like authentic Parrillas, choripan, tamales, the best pastries, desserts, drinks. Lots of shows and performances. A large variety of crafts on sale. Stalls selling everything from meats, cheeses, olive oil, dulce de leche and more. A fun day for the whole family.
  • It will be a pity if you leave Buenos Aires without spending a half or full day there, despite several shortcomings like disgraced public transport accessibility, and being the place highly crowded. Nevertheless the place is more than worth it.
  • The Sunday gaucho fair hawks the best street food in the city, including two empanadas that share the same name. Look out for the double dose of empanadas salteñas: the deep-fried chopped steak empanada from Argentina’s Salta province and the Bolivian empanada, a larger, sweeter baked empanada filled with stewed chicken or beef.
  • I love mataderos market! Very Argentinian and not over pack with tourist
  • Great original Fair with gaucho music and a lot of food from the countryside. A great experience in BA

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.
