We found Recoleta to be a very easy and beautiful place to walk around for high end shopping and dining. I found one of my favorites to be Smeterling Patisserie for deserts and treats. Also, we bought perfume from Fueguia which I loved because it's not a brand that I could shop for here in the U.S. The cemetery is a MUST-SEE! I was enthralled and appalled all at the same time. It's crazy the amount of money that is spent on burying the wealthy, but the grave-sites are so beautiful that you have no choice except to be enticed by the beauty of the architecture. I have never seen such a place in my travels. We would definitely stay in Recoleta again for the ease of getting around and peacefulness in the community.
