This was a great place to visit. A photographers dream. We took the Hop-on Hop-off bus tour from our hotel in Peurto Madero to Recoletta (the bus is not cheap though, around £20 pp). We found an english speaking Guide, Simon, at the Cemetery, who was really good and very informative. He took us straight to the tomb of Evita, rather than making us wait as other tours apparently do. We spent around an hour and a half in the Cemetery and then ate in the cafe/restaurant by the large rubber tree. Fully recommended,

We've stayed in Recoleta a couple times and find the location to be central. We like to walk so getting to Plaza Mayo or Palermo was not a problem

When our guide told us we were visiting a cemetery we were unsure to be honest! It was very interesting though. We were there about half an hour albeit in the rain. We visited Evita’s morsoleum. Worth a visit.

We heard it from many locals that Recoleta was the place to sleep! Very safe. Within walking distance of many shops. It also house the cemetery of the rich.

Have a drink at the Park Hyatt.

This can be such an enjoyable part of the city. October until the end of November is great because it's not too hot yet. And believe me December & January, February can be brutal heat wise. Humidity. The best way to see some of these neighborhoods is walking. Maybe if you are brave by bike, but I suggest you do that on Saturday & Sunday when there isn't so much traffic. Arenales Street between Cerrito up to park Vicente Lopez park is an enjoyable walk. When dusk comes and lights come on it's enchanting. Either side of the street there are so many shops and art galleries & cafes. When you end up at the park you can rest and watch all the kids have fun and watch the adults drink mate. Also on Cerrito is the Embassy of France & Embassy of Brasil. There are small Plazas with old street lamps and fountains. If you cross over 9 de Julio on Arenales there is a whole different neighborhood to be explored. Don't forget to take a tour of Palacio Paz. One of the most ornate,intact mansions in the city. Movies, videos have been filmed here. Soooo much to see. See it best on foot with cooler weather. Reminds me of Upper East Side in Manhattan

recoleta has all of the condiments for an unforgettable visit.
The time for this trip must start after lunch.
then visit the handicrafters fair and feel the flavor of typical gifts you can buy for very cheap prices and great quality.
after that, the church of the Recoletos Monks has an special colonial taste, keeping the History of ancient patriots ans heroes of the Rio de la Plata independency war with spain in the 19th Century, the church still maintains a lot of relics and trophys of that time.
Following that, is relevant to visit the Art Museum just beside the Church, with a variety of art works of the main argentine Artists.
On the other side of the Church, the Recoleta Cemetery keeps the History of the most relevant people resting their ages.
Juan Domingo Peron grave and too many other famous are there.
For finishing, the Art Design shopping center is very close to take an early dinner or a drink, mixing the mystery of the neighborhood with the exiting Buenos Aires Night experience

It's like being somewhere in Paris, one of the most European neighborhoods of the City of Buenos Aires, its cafes, its cemetery full of monuments and historical tombs, its Sunday's fairs, You can not miss the Patio Bullrich Shopping, an emblem of the neighborhood, nor the Alvear Avenue, where is located its Hotel homonymous

Recoleta is a lovely old money area of the city. It has high end designer shops. You can walk and find quaint coffee shops as well. Don’t try and negotiate in the shops. You’ll embarrass yourself.

Nice neighborhood.
Many shops and beautiful buildings of the nineteenth century. You can see that Buenos Aires was a great city.

Highly recommended walk .. you have to be a little careful with the sweepers, but otherwise very well.
