Calle Florida, a major shopping street, is lined with a mostly disappointing array of shops - chain stores you'll find in any major city, fast food joints, drug stores, and an occasional nice shop with leather goods and clothing that is not inexpensive. Look but not likely that you'll buy. Recoleta and Puerto Madero have better shopping, albeit very upscale... More

This is a nice pedestrian mall, with local and international stores. Everything I saw was 2x more expensive than back home. Disappointed!

Calle Florida has all sorts of shops and little "malls" to walk into.Check out the top floor of the Burger King for some interesting architecture since they have converted the building for another use. Have bought 2 jackets at Maybe which is at one end of Calle Florida. Both were altered and are fine...but just bought a cape(expensive leather) which... More

Lots of shops along Florida Street and it's a buzzy place. Great to stroll along and admire the architecture of some of the buildings esp the art deco interiors of galleria Guemes.

You can buy almost anything here and with the dollar strong now is a good time to look. Lots of stores, restaurants, cafes. Always crowded so watch for pickpockets but it's very safe and almost no cars (some delivery types). Leather goods particularly good here

This street is a great place to view a broad cross-section of the people of Buenos Aires. There is a lot to see with street-performers and kiosks as well as all of the stores and eating places you would expect. Areas like Recoleta are deemed to be more upscale but you really miss out on the everyday life available here.... More

It is amazing how a popular local shopping street transformed in a typical tourist destination over time. Granted, there are still bigger stores that cater to the local populace, but, al-in-all, it is geared towards the tourist. Too bad, unless that's what you truly are. Plenty of small stores that sell the same items.

Staying in San Nicolas

Neighborhood Profile
San Nicolas
Immersed in the sound of honking horns and the footsteps of busy office workers, the Microcentro area of San Nicolás is where visitors will encounter the true hustle and bustle of Buenos Aires, walking down streets lined with office buildings and banks. The financial district is well-known for its vibrant atmosphere and unstoppable rhythm during office hours. After dark, the hubbub migrates to Corrientes Ave., where theater lovers might start their evening at a play and end it in one of the many traditional pizzerias nearby. During the day, Corrientes is known for its many bookshops and classic cafés, which are located just minutes away from some famous landmarks, like the Obelisco, Avenida 9 de Julio, and the Teatro Colon.
