Enjoy a break from vehicular traffic along this pedestrian only street. Even without car traffic, the street can still get pretty busy with street vendors, shoppers, tourists, office workers, and plenty of money changers. The shopping for leather products is good (but not as good as other parts of Argentina) and if you have American dollars the deals can be... More

Calle Florida is the main street of Buenos Aires. It is pedestrian friendly and is filled with tiny malls, restaurants, and shops. The main attraction is Galleria Pacifico, the largest mall in Argentina. Mostly higher end shops with and art gallery on part of the third floor ( small amount charged to enter). Upon entering the mall go straight and... More

Not much fun in the morning; money changing hawkers shouting out all the way up and down the street. Lots of big name stores but very dirty and neglected area.

Very touristic area. Every shop pretty much sells the same item. My wife did find go to a hairdresser that used high quality products and done her roots and blow dry for £25 if this helps anyone?

Plenty of shopping but higher price than other areas as most tourists head here. Usually full of people trying to get you to change currency in cash. Quieter this trip as banks offering about the same rate. Worth visiting but lots more to see in Buenos Aires than to spend hours here.

It is a very long busy pedestrianised street with lots of shops.We entered from Galleria Pacifico and the first greetings were from a group of prostitutes! There are many hawkers offering MANY different services.Cambio is top of the list but beware.Nearly all the shops sell the usual touristy things.It isone of the places that everyone visits while in Buenos Aires.

When you walk calle Florida, from Avenue de Mayo to Plaza San Martin, you cross lots of intersections with incredible old buildings with and different styles, is nice to walk Florida St, and enjoy Buenos Aires

Seriously! This pedestrian street is the shopping Mecca for locals and tourists, and anything you want can be found in one of Calle Florida's shops or in the shopping malls and side streets? My friend and I headed there soon after we checked into our hotel, on the advice of the concierge...and we were glad we did. We window shopped... More

I just returned from Buenos Aires, my first trip since the government allowed the peso to float. The good 'ol days of being able to exchange US$ or other currencies at a higher-than-official rate on the street are over. I missed this notification and brought my typical wallet of US$, but there was little interest (other than the "cambio, cambio"... More

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.
