I know this is an old thread, but I would like to hear more about the city, as I might visit it during my vacation this year. That and Montevideo. What's good in Buenos Aires?

^the food, the chicks are super hot, and the discos. Those fuckers do it right. The plazas are fun to skate and you never get kicked out of spots. Weed is terrible tho

love it there, the converse plaza is a nice place to meet people and have a little fun.
kentuchy pizza is the best pizza joint in town and don't forget to try the dulce de leche ice cream, the older the shop the better.
as far as renting apartments go, always check airbnb

Going on may. I'm stoked about the trip. Is it feasible to cruise around the place? What are the best skate shops in Bs As?

Bumping this thread up. Might be going down there in a few weeks, any shops/spots/plazas I should check out? How is it skating in the city? Mellow or sketchy?

First of all, I haven't looked for anything in there, as I didn't take my board. But I've seen very few people with skateboards, and the prices for everything skate related were pretty high. But then again, I entered some kind of "board shop" in Florida street and a mall shop my the MALBA art museum, so... definitely not representative of the whole. You should talk to ElCarlSD, Venezuelan living in Argentina. He's always around. Buenos Aires is a gargantuan city, one of the most impressive I've ever seen, and I figure you'll find a great scene in there if you know where to look.

I might be going here as well. Took two 1 1/2 weeks off of work in July but haven't bought a ticket anywhere yet but am debating between some places in SA or doing Seoul + some other Asian cities. On the SA end do you guys have any recommendations? I was comparing mostly capitals and the only place I've been there is Colombia. Might try to fit in a Central American city too.

Im living in Buenos Aires currently and I must it is a dope city to skate. You have great public transportation (subte, buses)that can take you pretty much anywhere in the city pretty quick. There are a ton of spots especially if you actually go out and skate around to find shit. There are a lot of skateparks that are public plazas so they are open 24/7. Skating is not sketchy at all, you just have to be careful and look around where you are especially if you have camera equipment. The spot Id recommend going to is Plaza Houssay which used to be the meet up spot and now has a skatepark. You can meet up there warm up and then hit the streets. There is also a sort of market on saturdays where skaters sell stuff like boards, shoes, etc all for much cheaper than the local stores.

It's true. It's all ancient, but it all works fine, and with a subte card you can go anywhere. I didn't get one myself, but I chipped in with my group for one, and it's a no-brainer, especially because it costs more to pay with money than with the card. It's a walking city, too, so there's always that option. Sadly, I didn't leave the city, but there are train lines out of Buenos Aires. Changes to the transport infrastructure were in the talks during the tail-end of the Cristina government, and with Macri in power, some of the (rather insane) subsidies have been cut, so I have no idea of what to expect. Hopefully I'll return to Argentina in the near future and maybe meet some of the Pals.
