priopelle has indicated that this thread is about Argentina

Hey,

Landing in B.A. on October 1st and staying in a hostel in El Centro (Limehouse). Not sure how long we are staying (going with girlfriend) but are interested in hearing about must see trendy/happining restaurants (with good food, of course) and clubs/ lounges with mixed crowds playing house/urban (R&B,Hiphop) club...
Would like to bump around the city and stay in different neighbourhoods with different vibes..Please provide advice
on neat/exciting neighbourhoods and places to stay.. would not be
adverse to staying in stylish (affordable) boutique hotels...
Above, same goes for Montevideo...

what is the best way to get tickets to tickets to a Boca vs. River football match? will it be soccer season in october? what other sporting events are available to see?

Don't think we'll make it down to Patagonia due to $$ and time, therefore what other activities/places towns would one suggest.
Enjoy going to small villages and taking in some rural culture
as well..

All advise greatly appreciated.

Paul

HI!

in buenos aires, don´t miss the fair... at recoleta square, is one of my favorite things in buenos aires. You can find everything, and there´s people dancing, juglling, singing... all around tha square. I f u like some underground stuff, go to Bond Street galeries at santa fé avenue... plenty of tattoo studios, music stores, old shit to sell and thinks like that, it´s quite nice. Lots of beautiful parks around the city too. If u like some action, go to tha river heading west of tha city, to some "neighbourhoods" like Acasusso or tigres, do some kite/windsurfing, wakeboarding and etc...

Nightlife is one of tha best in south america (just my opinion). Go to Pacha (the same from ibiza and BCN) or club mint. Good house stuff. For some nightclub a little bit more "wild" go to Club 69, it´s nice too. It´s of museums on tha city too. I don´t know interesting places outside buenos aires, just far away from there.

see ya
