Getting around can be difficult if you have no idea where you’re going, and whilst there is a lot to be said for exploring on your own steam and enjoying what you find, saving time is also important if you’re not in the city for that long. When it comes to getting from the airport to your hotel, or vice versa, how about hiring a limo?

Microcentro is where the most famous parts of the city are, and this is also known as Downtown. A famous pedestrian area, called Florida Street, is located in this neighbourhood, and this is where you can get your serious retail therapy hit. If you want something a little more authentic however, San Telmo is a great go-to. Here you will find old houses, but you will also find vibrant nightlife, with plenty of locals partying, especially at the weekend.

Palermo is where you will find more upmarket life, and La Boca is colourful, quite literally! The houses are painted every colour you can imagine! If you are looking for something seriously upmarket, then Recoleta is where you need to go, however Puerto Madero is fantastic at night, set on the waterfront and packed with international restaurants and nightlife. Venture a little further out of the city to the Reserva Ecologica Costanera Sur, where nature lovers will be in their element!
