Buenos Aires is an extensive city, and every area has something new to offer. Recoleta and Palermo are widely considered the trendiest neighbourhoods, the former being a more cultured area with fashionable boutiques and galleries and high-end hotels lining its broad tree-lined avenues, the latter being a greener, more peaceful area, whose parks and lakes attract weekend crowds for fun and relaxation. The former port area of Puerto Madero has been thoroughly refurbished, turning old brick warehouses into hip bars and nightclubs. Those seeking a more bohemian vibe will prefer to visit San Telmo and La Boca. As one of the oldest neighbourhoods in the city, the whole of San Telmo, with its narrow cobblestone streets and colonial style buildings, is considered a national historical monument, and both locals and tourists flock here on weekends to browse the antique boutiques and markets. The historic and more working-class La Boca also attracts huge crowds on weekends to admire the colourful steel shacks that were once the dwellings of migrant workers and catch a sensual tango show. The city has even more to offer, if you still have time. Las Cañitas is Buenos Aires' gastronomic hub, old aristocratic Retiro boasts some of the city's most beautiful architecture, residential Belgrano mixes mansions with skyscrapers, and of course, the downtown area is home to most of the city's monuments and important national buildings. Those who take the time to really explore the city will marvel at the sheer amount and diversity of things to see and do, and will surely feel that one visit is not nearly enough to take it all in.
