Fragata ARA Sarmiento, Buenos Aires

4.3
Imagine the thrill of sailing the wild seas a century ago as you step aboard Fragata ARA Sarmiento. Built in 1898 as a training vessel for the Argentine navy, the frigate could hold more than 300 crew in its heyday, during which it served on 37 training voyages. Since its retirement in 1939, the ship has been painstakingly restored, showcasing the lush interior that housed many of its officers over the years. Bring the kids along, and let them act out their pirate fantasies as they run around the ship's deck.

    Puerto Madero is the barrio taken from old port of Baires, now there are modern skyscrapers and great restaurants, is sprawling, near the Ponte de le Mujer, modern bridge stands whitewashed el Barco Escuela Sarmiento very nice and also painted in white, the you can visit in about a half hour, it's worth it even if there is no comparison with our Amerigo Vespucci.

    I was no way to know the Museum and found very interesting for being so old and be so well preserved. Almost all areas of frigate are visitable and in every corner there is something interesting, are huge parts, uniforms, cabins, dorms or the story told in summarized texts. Admission is between 5 and 10 Argentine pesos per person.

    Is a centralized location in Puerto Madero, near the Puente de la Mujer and several restaurants, cafes and ice cream parlors. The entry is symbolic, paid in pesos, and gives access to all the boat, which was used for many years for training, and made hundreds of trips before becoming a museum. The visit is well varied, gives you access to almost all environments, and has lots of pictures, letters, clothes, diving equipment, quarters of officers etc. It is very fun to visit for adults and children, but the movement may be difficult for people with disabilities or people with difficulty. There are many steps, steps and aisles, it is possible to go up on deck. The view is even more beautiful at the end of the day, to sunset is a great option to include a script for that part of the city, I loved the ride and I learned a lot.

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.
