Best Things To Do In Buenos Aires San Telmo Market

Buenos Aires is an incredible city to visit in Argentina. Nestled on the eastern fringes of the country, it’s a city that’s got a little something for every type of traveller. There is so much to see and do. That being said, it can be hard to whittle down a list of the best things to do in Buenos Aires, especially if you’re in the city for a few days.

Over the years, we’ve visited Buenos Aires many times and absolutely love it. We first visited alongside our wider trip to Antarctica, Patagonia and Mendoza; all of which we loved.

Just a heads up, on a hot summer day, it can get quite warm inside. Humitidy, hundreds of stalls cooking and thousands of people are a combination that will induce buckets of sweat.
