LA RECOLETA CEMETERYThe La Recoleta Cemetery is a unique experience to encounter. The tombs inside the cemetery are famous for being above ground, It's a little eerie, and I will admit that it did make me feel a little queazy,but it is quite simply a unique and an amazing experience…. but it is still the tomb of Evita that attracts the most attention, and being a bit of an 'Evita' fan, this was on top of the list. The tomb is hard to find if you’re not with a local tour guide, so if you’ve arrived on your own accord just follow the large groups and eavesdrop on a tour.

EXPLORE THE STREETS OF LA BOCAEver looked at images of Buenos Aires and imagined the playful colours and cobblestone alleyways lined with art and trinkets? That would be La Boca neighbourhood. Be sure to stay in the designated area on advice from your hotel or cab driver on the safe areas to go. Don't leave this area, It's perfectly safe there, and is fairly heavily policed (WITHIN the area- even one street outside can be quite dangerous, don't follow locals out of this area and go during the day and always be aware!
GET THE FULL ARGENTINE EXPERIENCEAs far as restaurant recommendations go, there could be no one single better recommendation than to book yourself in for an evening at The Argentine Experience. This is no ordinary local meal though, as it is more an event in itself. Your hosts will guide you through a range of Argentinian social and cultural traits, covering everything from hand gestures to tea drinking rituals. There’s also an empanada making competition and in general, the whole night is just a lot of fun – an absolute must do whilst in Buenos Aires.
HIT THE MARKETS IN SAN TEMLO
If you find yourself in Buenos Aires on a weekend, what better way to spend a Sunday than to hit the markets. Every Sunday since 1970 the Feria de San Telmo has welcomed thousands of people to its’ open air market, which is not only a great chance to purchase trinkets but also to people watch at leisure.
VISIT THE PINK PALACE
Buenos Aires' pink palace is Argentina's equivalent to the White House, home to the presidential offices. The president does not live here but in a mansion in the suburb of Los Olivios. It is from the famous balcony on the north wing that Eva peron and countless other politicians- addressed her adorers. It is also where Madonna was permitted to film the 1996 movie 'Evita', from this normally off limits balcony.
