The Microcentro area has almost everything you'll need. From restaurants and coffee shops, to banks, money changers and travel agents. It also has some cool churches and other interesting pieces of architecture in it.

This isn't my favorite part of Buenos Aires; it isn't a place to visit at night. It gives me a sense of claustrophobia because there is concrete everywhere. There is too much garbage lying around, and the walls are painted with graffiti. I can only...More
