Palermo, Buenos Aires

4.6
#4 of 292 in Shopping in Argentina
It may not be the geographical center of the city, but the vibrant neighborhood of Palermo serves as the social hub of Buenos Aires. The district, one of the largest by area in the city, thrives with cafes, bars, restaurants, and nightclubs, making it the ideal spot to meet friends for a night out on the town. It's worth a visit by day, too--the neighborhood houses the extensive Bosques de Palermo, a huge public park containing Buenos Aires' zoo and botanical gardens, as well as the city's rose and Japanese gardens. Rich with diversity, the neighborhood ranges from upscale on its northeastern side to alternative in the southwest.

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.
