You have never been to Buenos Aires ? Then buckle up your seat belt and go visit the Paris of the South!
San Telmo (on the map) is the oldest neighbourhood (barrio) of Buenos Aires. Old, but well preserved with Spanish style buildings and cobblestoned streets...
A tremendous amount of delicious restaurants, vintage-style bars and feel-good cafés, trendy shops, amazing street art, narrow alleys with ivy over-grown houses and lush trees… add to all that a big hotchpotch of porteños (citizens of Buenos Aires), vacationers and expats, and you’ll have every ingredient that contributes to a matchless city trip experience!
The pavement of Buenos Aires reveals itself to be the tricky bit of the city. The state of the sidewalks varies from neighborhood to neighborhood and often holds more than one surprise. Unsuspecting, “curiously eyeing around” tourists, often experience nasty surprises!
Packing a suitcase, especially for us ladies, is almost always close to impossible: what should I pack, on which occasion, how do people dress over there…? Those are questions that haunt us already 2 weeks before departure.
This neighbourhood is situated at the old port of Buenos Aires and it’s also the cradle of football legend Diego Maradona who played in the Club Atlético Boca Juniors.
