No reviews, be the first!

The capital of Argentina, Buenos Aires, is the second-largest metropolitan area in South America (after Sao Paulo, Brazil) and the best spot in the country to pick up items you might have forgotten before your trip or to find souvenirs to take home. With dozens of markets, malls, shops and department stores, the possibilities are practically endless.

1) Where to Shop

No matter what you’re looking for—leather goods, bootleg CDs, a pocketknife to replace the one confiscated from your carry-on luggage—Calle Florida is a great place to start. The city center’s landmark shopping street is always crowded, with excellent people-watching, a great selection of things to buy and plenty of people ready to pickpocket unwary travelers.
