GLOBETROTTER GUIDE: ARGENTINA
Our beautiful stylist and the founder/ owner of Suru Studio, Eugenia, is from the amazing country that is Argentina. Although we are unable to travel at the moment, one of our bucket list places to visit is Buenos Aires. Eugenia has kindly curated her favourite places to stay, visit and eat in Buenos Aires.
WHERE TO STAY?
I think the best way to enjoy Buenos Aires is by staying at an Airbnb in the area of Palermo, is close to everywhere and you can enjoy the beautiful parks like ‘El Rosedal’.
WHAT TO DO?
There are a few musts when travelling to Buenos Aires. Museums are one of them, my favourite is Malba, there’s always a great exhibition on. Going to the theatre is also a must, that way you get to know Calle Corrientes which is a famous one and after the play you should go grab pizza and fauna (chickpea flatbread) at Güerrin. Barbecue is also a must, Argentina is all about barbecue ‘Don Julio’ is one of the best restaurants to do so. Palermo Soho is a great spot for trendy design and you shouldn’t miss a walk through Alvear Ave and Plaza Francia. Visiting greater Buenos Aires is also great. Peru Beach in San Isidro allows a day visit and is close to the river (rio de la plata).
WHERE TO GO?
Day trips are a great way to get to know the city, I would definitely recommend hiring a car for this. Some of my fav close by places are San Antonio de Areco which is a nice colonial town with beautiful roads and you get to see traditional Buenos Aires farms. Tandil is another favourite, I would recommend a weekend getaway so you can enjoy staying in a nice cabin in the hills. Tigre is a whole neighbourhood in the river. I would also turn this into a weekend getaway to enjoy the peace of the islands. There’s a beautiful hotel called La Becasina and the famous beaches of Mar del Plata or Carilo (around 4-5hs from the city). If you wanna travel around Argentina, Patagonia is a must as well as Purmarca where the famous ‘Cerro de los siete colores’ is.
WHERE TO EAT?
There are so many amazing food options in Buenos Aires! I love going to Bodegones where you have traditional food and you can breathe true Argentinean style. For higher end restaurnat there’s Tegui, Anafe, Narda Comedor. For a good, traditional Argentinean barbecue I would say Don Julio is a must.
