I love coming to Recoleta on Sundays. There is always so much going on. Street musician’s, art vendors, cafes to sit and talk. It's a great place to relax and have a cup of coffee in one of the many cafes while listening to the local musicians.

Do not miss the cemetery and hire a guide to tell you more, so to understand Argentina like a book you would begin through its last chapters, but do miss most of the tourist restaurants in front of it. Walk 15 min further to the Malba museum or to the Teatro Colon. Hotels and restaurants are great in Recoleta but... More

We stayed in a condo in Recoleta and were delighted with this location. Safe at all hours, convenient to great restaurants, bakeries, sight seeing, etc. It is definitely a pricey neighborhood, but well worth it for the location.

We went to Ricoleta around noon on a Saturday and spent a few hours walking around the neighbourhood and the cemetery. Recoleta is very beautiful and even though Saturday means it crowded it is worth it as you also get to visit the market outside the cemetery. A bit overpriced perhaps but still one of the best markets I visited... More

Recoleta is a beautiful old neighborhood, very upscale, with lively cafes and chic boutiques. Both times I visited .BA I rented an apartment here, which is easy to do and far more economical than staying in a hotel.

We visited La Recoleta on the same day we arrived in BA. It's a great visit to walk off the kinks of a long flight. There are a couple of little cats that great you as you walk in, along with potential walking tour guides that will politely either offer a tour or point out some must-sees on a map... More

Bring a camera and comfortable shoes...this is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Stop into LaBiela for an outdoor dining experience viewing the Plaza Francais. The Doors here are astounding! The Palace Hotel and the shops surrounding it are with the journey.

Recoleta is a nice neighborhood, you have a lot of interesting and touristic places like "The recoleta's cemetery" and the architecture of the buildings over here is just amazing.
