I'm going to be in Buenos Aires next month and will be on a pretty tight budget. I'm looking for the best free and inexpensive things to check out! I love the outdoors, art, museums, you name it. Thanks!
November is always a warm month so it's a great time to explore the city and its neighborhoods on foot. From the top of my head:
-Recoleta and please don't miss the cemetery there
-Puerto Madero on a sunny day. Modern part of the city, great parks, etc
-San Telmo. I suggest going there on a sunday to catch the street market
-Downtown during the weekdays. Take a picture with the obelisk and grab a slice of pizza in one of the famous pizzerias in Av.Corrientes
-Palermo is a big neighborhood. Palermo Soho is the most trendy area of Buenos Aires is great to explore on foot and maybe grab a coffee here too.
Then you have "Bosques de Palermo" its kinda like a big park with a lake in the middle where you will see everyone jogging during the week,
In this same area is the "Jardin Japones" (Japanese Garden) which is beautiful. Although you have to buy a ticket for this, is worth 50 pesos so it would be less than $5
I don't know how long are you staying but I hope this would be a good start!
If you have any more questions just let me know, I would be happy to help.
Enjoy Bs As!
The state museums are free or you have to pay a little contribution, I specially like the Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes, the Museo Nacional de Arte Decorativo, Museo Evita, Museo Del Bicentenario, Centro Cultural Recoleta.
You can also visit the Usina del arte in Boca and the Centro Cultural Kirchner which are cultural centers with free exhibitions, shows and great architecture.
And if you like museums there are others not free but really good like the Malba, a must see in my opinion, Fundación Proa and Faena Arts Center.
But of course the best of the city are the streets and in spring there are lots of things to do outdoors. Don't miss Recoleta, Palermo, San Telmo, Puerto Madero, Belgrano. You can check www.buenosaires.gov.ar to know the activities for each month.
I hope you enjoy my city. Good luck
