I especially loved the Recoleta cemetery when I visited BA over 12 years ago. Returning this Sept. 2012 was a treat, albeit the vibe overall in BA feels different. Perhaps it's the impact of inflation, government corruption, and the increase in crime. Nevertheless weI felt relatively safe walking around at night, and the elegant Recoleta area felt particularly secure. We stayed at the boutique hotel Mio Buenos Aires and had a great experience there. It's literally a two minute walk from Recoleta cemetery and the Basilica Nuestra Senora del Pilar, and Plaza Francia where all the cafes are situated. In the Plaza there's a lovely fair on the weekend with live music and art vendors selling their goods. There are great restaurants to consider; Fervor on Posadas and their sister restaurant for Spanish food, El Burladero on Pte. J.E. Uriburu. Try El SanJuanino for authentic locra...also on Posadas, right next to Fervor. For amazing, but expensive Italian food we dined at Piegari, near the Four Seasons hotel. Walk down Callao to visit the famous jazz club Notorious We had a fun evening there.....not spectacular (my novio is a jazz musician and coming from NYC the standard is hard to beat) but it's a good time out taking in good music. Nearby is the famed El Cuartito for amazing pizza. It's a 5 minute walk from Teatro Colon which is a must see! Overall a wonderful stay and Recoleta was a terrific home base.
