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.

  • On weekend afternoon there is guided tour (in Spanish). The best expositions are palaeontology and Argentine science history. Come on weekend and later go to see free show in Centenario Park.  more »
  • Great for little kids! A lot of facts and reading in Spanish only...Lots of dinosaurs and stuffed animals too. An hour and a half is plenty of time for this.  more »
  • We have already visited the similar museum in La Plata and were thinking whether to visit this one or not. I'm very glad we did eventually decide to go. The museum has an extensive collection of shell...  more »

  • An excellent museum filled with everything from giant Sloth to a half exposed imbedded wooly mammoth to prehistoric dinosaurs skeletons and a collection of giant insects. Inexpensive and open 7 days a week from 2-7 pm.
  • It's so big that you can not see all with one visit. You'll need two or three times at least.
  • A very interesting collection with a sandbox for kids to excavate "dinosaur" bones.
  • It's not the American Museum of Natural History, but for the space it has and the price of the entry it's very good.
  • A good place to get acquainted with the nature of Argentina. Excellent exposure to a lot of educational material .
