#4 of 596 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.

  • This is the largest barrio in BA and is filled with tree-lined streets with long, narrow 19th century houses ripe for renovation. Not my favourite area - bit too slick for my liking!!  more »
  • I really liked its atmosphere both day and night, very safe for tourists, clean and at night surrounded by lights makes it look very beautiful.
