If you're in Buenos Aires then this area is a must see - super colourful buildings and if you're in luck you'll even get to see the tango street performers.
Heed the advice of others though - if you're not passing through you may be hounded for money and/or may end up spending a lot of money unnecessarily.
If you are a true explorer then you may come across some pretty undesirable streets. If you're female travelling alone, try and stick to the main roads. Alternatively you can visit the area as part of a tour.
