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.

  • Very interesting, the frigate was already ship school and is now a museum open to the public. Docked just behind the Casa Rosada in a place of easy access. I thought the visit very interesting learning how was the life of the sailors on board.

  • Visit interesting. The boat is in Puerto Madero and runs a museum within it. A bit of history and shows various details, which are scattered all over the boat. Just $10.00 to enter.

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.
