Buenos aires tiene mucho que ver desde Recoleta, El Barrio de La Boca hasta Puerto madero. Todos ellos muy diferentes el uno del otro volviéndolos únicos e incomparables. El Barrio de la Boca es el mejor lugar para comer comprar y conocer. Es un lugar muy representativo lleno de colores y rebosante de ambiente argentino. Puerto madero es un lugar más refinado, el resultado de la restauración de un puerto puramente comercial en un paseo con restaurants finos (una buena comida costara unos 50-90 pesos Argentinos). Recoleta Viene siendo un barrio variado, en el se encuentra la Floris Generis, un tulipán gigante que se abre y se cierra dependiendo si es de noche o de día, el Musieo de Nacional de Bellas Artes y el Museo MALBA. También el Cementerio de la Recoleta, famoso por sus extravagantes criptas y el mercado de artesanías que se coloca los domingos. También vale mucho ir a visitar el rosedal y el jardín botánico. Un restaurant muy recomendable es el restaurant La Cabrera, ubicado en la Calle Cabrera en el barrio de Palermo, en lo personal el mejor restaurant de comida Argentina en el que he comido en mi vida, los platos son grandes, como para 2 o 3 personas y con muchos acompañamientos que le otorga una mezcla de sabores inigualable. En cuanto a la estancia, es económico hospedarse en hosteles, los de Hosteling International tienen varios hosteles en Buenos Aries, de los cuales los mejores son: V&S Hostel, en la calle de Viamonte, justo en el centro y Bue Hostel ubicado en la avenida Luis María Campos, cerca de Palermo, a 2 cuadras del la estación Palermo del metro (o subte como le llaman los argentinos). Para moverse dentro de Buenos aires la mejor opción es caminar, si van a moverse en distancias largas la opción es un bus, el cual les cobrara a lo máximo 1 peso argentino (ojo, solo aceptan monedas) las monedas en buenos aires son un poco difíciles de conseguir, abundan los billetes pero las monedas escasean, hay que cuidarlas bien.

Using the Collectivo (Bus) System

In my opinion, the collectivo is the best (and cheapest) way to travel around the city.  It can be a bit daunting at first with over 200 lines throughout Bs As, but by using the Guia "T" you can find a collectivo that will take you on a near-direct route from any location in the city to pretty much any place you need to go. 
A few tips to remember;
  • Always carry plenty of centavos in Bs As, you'll need them for everything, especially the collectivos ($ 0.90).
  • The collectivo is widely used and will sometimes fill up at rush hour.  You may have to stand in line at the bus stop and wait your turn.
  • The collectivo does not automatically stop at every stop.  It is common practice to hold your arm out parallel to the ground (sort of like hailing a cab) if you want the bus to stop.
  • Keep your valuables close and wear your backpack in front.  Better safe than sorry.
  • Drivers (and people) are generally friendly and will help you get to your destination.  Try asking in Spanish first for the best response.
  • Traffic in general moves super fast in Bs As, so hang on to your wigs and keys!
One trip I do not suggest taking by collectivo is from the airport (EZE) to the city.  It will take a couple of hours and take you through some pretty nasty parts of town.

Most lines run all night, so you can pretty much always get where you need to go.  Just know where you and the bus are going before you board and enjoy the ride!
