How to Spend ONE DAY in Buenos Aires: 1-Day Itinerary

How to Spend ONE DAY in Buenos Aires: 1-Day Itinerary

This blog may contain affiliate links. Read our disclosure policy for more info.

One of the best cities in South America is the beautiful Buenos Aires in Argentina. It’s full of rich cultural heritage, delicious food, and some breathtaking views.

There are so many things to do in Buenos Aires, but even if you can only visit for a day, this is a place you don’t want to miss. Whether you’re staying here on a layover before heading to Patagonia or visiting any of Argentina’s other impressive areas, we want you to take full advantage of this amazing city.

Buenos Aires is huge, but we’ve rounded up some of the best stops to enjoy a full day here. We’ve made sure to include activities that are close to each other so you don’t have to worry about the logistics at all. So let’s get into it!

Don’t have time to read the full article? If you’re spending one day in Buenos Aires, we recommend going on a city sightseeing tour, walking around the colorful La Boca neighborhood, visiting the Bombonera Stadium Museum, and watching an epic tango show!

1 Day in Buenos Aires

Bueno Aires is the capital of Argentina which is the second largest country in South America after Brazil. The city itself has 48 neighborhoods so we think the best way to explore is by going on a sightseeing tour in Buenos Aires.

Most of these tours revolve around the Plaza de Mayo, which is the main square. There are many important landmarks lining the Plaza de Mayo, including City Hall, the Metropolitan Cathedral, and the Casa Rosada which we’ll discuss more below.

Small-Group City Tour

One of my favorite tours is this Small-Group City Tour which is a driving tour with minimal walking, so it’s great for a quick stay. Personally, I think this is one of the best tours for first-timers.

You’ll start by driving through the historic Bohemian neighborhood of San Telmo, which is full of history. From the colonial buildings to the cobblestone streets, driving around this area really gives you a sense of what Buenos Aires looked like decades ago.

After San Telmo, you’re off to La Boca which is one of my favorite neighborhoods in Buenos Aires. I love all the colorful houses here (just check out the photo above!).

La Boca is traditionally recognized as a working-class neighborhood that is home to many different communities since immigrants from all over the world have settled here. The reason the houses are so colorful is that they were built using leftover dockyard materials and discarded paint, which resulted in this fun paint-by-numbers-esque design.

This 3-hour tour also includes a stop at the Casa Rosada (aka the pink house) which is the official government office. You’ll also get to see the Metropolitan Cathedral and the Teatro Colón, which is a famous opera house. In fact, it’s considered one of the best opera houses in the world, right up there with the Sydney Opera House and the Metropolitan Opera House in New York City.

Then, you’re off to some other popular neighborhoods in Buenos Aires like Retiro and Recoleta. There’s the Plaza General San Martín in Retiro, which is a public park with lots of sculptures and monuments, and the whole neighborhood is known for its artwork.

The last stop is Recoleta, and there’s an option to hop off and explore the Recoleta Cemetery which is definitely worth doing! I know recommending a stroll through the cemetery might sound morbid, but this one is more like a museum or a small village. It costs about $6 USD to tour the cemetery, and it houses vaults that are National Historic Monuments, beautiful sculptures and architecture, and huge mausoleums that are probably big enough to live in (although we don’t recommend it).

This cemetery is the resting place for many historical figures like writers, athletes, politicians, and former First Lady Eva Perón which is one of the most visited tombs. It’s really unique, and while it might be a little eerie for some, we enjoyed walking through it.

This tour costs $29 USD per person, which includes transportation and a very knowledgeable guide. Given everything we saw, this ended up being a great deal! Depending on your location, you’ll be picked up at your hotel between 8:30 and 9:30 am. If you decide to get off at Recoleta Cemetery, the tour will end around 12:30 pm. 

This was a perfect introduction to Buenos Aires, and you can book this tour online here.

Hop-on Hop-off Tour

If you prefer to explore the city more independently, we love using the hop-on hop-off buses.

This Hop-on Hop-off Bus ticket is only $30 USD for a 24-hour pass. Buses run from 9:40 am to 5:30 pm, so it’s a really flexible option if you’ve only got one day. We suggest starting at the Plaza de Mayo since the bus stop is a short 5-minute walk from here.

You can take an Uber to Plaza de Mayo or ride the subway to Plaza de Mayo Station – it’s at the very end of line A (the light blue line on the map). However, you’ll need a SUBE card to take public transit in the city (more on that in our subway section below).

There are a lot of options on this bus route, with 25 stops total. If you choose this tour instead of the one above, we recommend getting off at San Telmo and walking around Plaza Dorrego. You can grab a coffee (or a beer – you’re on vacation after all) at one of the local restaurants. If you’re visiting on a Sunday, they host a really cool antiques fair with traditional art, photos, vintage pieces, and crafts for sale.

Another fun stop is at Costanera Sur, which is a lovely park overlooking the water with sculptures around the area. It’s a great place to walk through the trees and feel a little refreshed. If you’re looking for a more upscale adventure, we suggest taking the bus to the next exit at Puerto Madero. This is a classy riverside area, but it’s more known for its nightlife, so visiting during the day is a lot calmer.

If you enjoy shopping, hop off at the Galerías Pacífico exit which is a huge mall with a beautiful ceiling mural. Places like this are why Buenos Aires is nicknamed the “Paris of South America.”

Other stops along the way include the Floralis Genérica, Chinatown, and the National Museum of Decorative Art. You can choose where you want to get off and explore, but the next part of our itinerary takes you through La Boca, so I’d recommend skipping this exit or timing it so it aligns with your afternoon plans.

If you’re excited to explore Buenos Aires while riding on an open-top bus, you can book your Hop-on Hop-off Bus Tour ticket here.

Bike tour

There are a ton of amazing tours in Buenos Aires, but one of our personal favorites is this bike tour. In around four hours, we were able to visit a lot of the neighborhoods and get a new perspective on this city – plus some exercise!

We met in Plaza San Martín at 9:30 am and rode along the river through Puerto Madero and the green eco-park. You’ll get the chance to bike past the colorful La Boca houses and the historical San Telmo, which we mentioned above. The last stop on this tour includes pedaling around Plaza de Mayo before returning to Plaza San Martín.

If you enjoy cycling, this guided tour is a great choice for spending a morning in Buenos Aires. If you’re worried about the journey, the ride is very smooth since the city is mostly flat, and there are bike lanes almost everywhere so we felt safe the entire time.

This tour is only $36 USD which includes a comfy beach cruiser bike, helmets, a bottle of water, and rain gear if the occasion calls for it. If you’re traveling with small kids, you can also request child seats. We recommend the 9:30 am option, but there is also a tour at 2 pm, and you need to arrive 15 minutes before your tour time.

If you want to get some fresh air via bicycle, check availability and book your dates online here!

Explore Plaza de Mayo by yourself

Occasionally while traveling, it’s nice to enjoy a slower morning to discover things at your own pace. So if you don’t want to take a guided tour, you can always explore Plaza de Mayo on your own. 

We recommend checking out Casa Rosada where you can view the balcony where the former First Lady, Eva Perón, famously addressed the crowds. You can also go to the Metropolitan Cathedral, which is open on weekdays from 7:45 am – 6:45 pm and on weekends from 9 am – 6:45 pm. It’s free to visit, but please be respectful of any services.

Another important building in this plaza is the National Museum of the Cabildo. In the 18th century, this building was the city hall, but it’s been converted into a museum that houses heritage pieces. It’s also free to enter and is open Wednesday to Sunday from 10:30 am to 6 pm.

Nearby is La Librería de Avila, the city’s oldest bookstore, and this is another place worth checking out. Although we didn’t find many English books here, there were plenty of unique and rare items. If you’re a book-lover, do yourself a favor and add this to your list. This enchanting bookstore is open weekdays from 9 am – 7 pm and on Saturdays from 10 am – 3 pm.

You can also visit El Obelisco, which is a 15-minute walk from the main square. It was built to celebrate the 400th anniversary of the founding of Buenos Aires and is still one of the city’s most famous landmarks. For any football fans, this is where the huge crowds of people were celebrating following the post-World-Cup madness.

After that, you can grab an Uber and take a 15-minute ride to get to La Boca. There are no subways that go to La Boca, so if you haven’t rented a car, taking an Uber is your best option.

Afternoon – La Boca

So cool!

As I mentioned above, La Boca is one of my favorite places in Buenos Aires. We love this colorful neighborhood, but it’s had a turbulent history, so there are some important things to know about La Boca.

The name La Boca translates to “the mouth” because this area sits at the mouth of the Matanza River. This is where immigrants arriving from Asia and Europe first set foot in Argentina, many of whom ended up settling here. 

The houses in La Boca were built using leftover shipyard materials and paints, so while they look like part of an art project, the real reason behind the bright houses is due to a lack of options. This area faced a lot of social and economic problems over the years, which led to the neighborhood being known for its garra, or fighting spirit, thanks to the resilience of the locals.

La Boca is credited as being the birthplace of the tango, although neighboring Uruguay might argue for that title. As you explore its winding streets, you’ll see lots of dancers performing this famous dance and taking photos with tourists. 

While you might have briefly stopped in La Boca on a sightseeing tour, most itineraries only give you 20-30 minutes to explore which is why we recommend exploring this wonderful place even more. It’s one of the city’s most interesting areas, and we loved spending time here!

It’s worth noting that La Boca is regarded as a tourist hotspot. As such, pickpockets and phone snatchers tend to frequent the area (some even grab phones while riding by on bikes). That being said, we didn’t have any bad experiences! However, we do recommend wearing cross-body purses with zippers in the front and being careful when taking your phone out.

El Caminito

Why don’t they paint more streets like this?!

The most famous street in La Boca is El Caminito. It’s actually considered an open-air museum, but once upon a time, it was a regular residential street. It followed the Matanza River (also known as the Riachuelo), but once the river dried up, it became part of the railroad street. You can even see some tracks nearby.

Along with the railroad, El Caminito was abandoned. But in the 1950s, a group of La Boca residents worked together to revive it. Now, the buildings are well-maintained and regularly repainted, and you can dine in the many restaurants and bars that offer a great view. You can even sit outside and watch tango dancers perform here. 

La Bombonera Football Stadium

La Bombonera Football Stadium
La Bombonera Football Stadium!

La Bombonera Stadium is the home of Boca Juniors, one of Buenos Aires’ famous football teams. They have a fierce rivalry with River Plate, and it was commonplace for fights to break out during games. We watched one match that was extended by 20 minutes due to a brawl on the pitch!

In fact, Argentinians are so passionate about football that only home fans are allowed into the stadium during games. So if you were a River Fan, you wouldn’t be allowed into La Bombonera to support your team, and vice versa. 

If you visit the museum inside the stadium, they offer tours of La Bombonera. Stadium tours were temporarily suspended last time we checked, but if you want to visit the museum, we recommend getting this skip-the-line tour of the museum for $38 USD. It’s a private tour and the guides have fun football tales like how the stadium got its name (hint … it has to do with chocolate!). Plus, you’ll get to enjoy an inside look at a soccer museum that was the first of its kind in South America!

When you book this tour online, you can opt to pay an additional fee to include transportation from your hotel or go on a guided tour through Caminito afterward. The museum is open daily from 10 am to 6 pm, and the ticket office closes at 5:30 pm.

Check out the Quinquela Museum of Fine Arts

Housed inside one of La Boca’s brightly colored buildings, the Quinquela Museum is home to some excellent examples of Argentinian art. These pieces show how life has changed in La Boca from the late 19th century to the present day. 

The collection includes many works by Benito Quinquela Martín, who is considered to be one of Argentina’s most talented and prolific artists of all time. Martín is famed for his vibrant oil paintings that depicted life in La Boca, so there’s no better place to check out his work than in the heart of the neighborhood itself!

The museum is open Tuesdays to Sundays from 11:15 am – 6 pm and costs just over $1 USD to enter.

Evening – Tango Show

One of the best ways to spend your time in Argentina is by going to a local tango show!

Since this city is the birthplace of tango, you can’t pass up the opportunity to go to a show when you’re here. We had so much fun and it was definitely a highlight of our Buenos Aires adventure!  

Early Tango Dinner Show

We went to this early tango show and chose the option with transport and a delicious 3-course steak dinner beforehand. The other option is just for the show without pickup, but it was a lot of fun to make an evening out of it. 

We were picked up at 6:30 pm from our hotel to go to the venue. The whole experience was really elevated with the steak dinner and local wine, and we’d recommend it to anyone looking to treat themselves.

The food and service were excellent, and the dancers were amazing. Tango is such an intricate and intense dance, and seeing it in person is extra special as you can feel the passion. As well as the tango, the performers did an equally incredible gaucho dance.

This experience costs $109 USD for dinner and the show, and it ends around 10:30 pm. We love this because you can be in bed at a decent time before heading to your next destination in Argentina. If you have an early flight the next day, this tour is perfect!

You can also opt to forego dinner and just see the tango show. The show costs $59 USD, but it doesn’t include transportation, and you’ll need to arrive at the venue before 8 pm. If you can, it’s worth it to budget for the dinner option because you won’t have to worry about getting to and from the venue and you’ll get an amazing meal.

Having one day in the city doesn’t mean you have to miss out on a tango show, and you can purchase tickets for this Early Tango Dinner Show online here.

Tango Porteño

Tango Porteño is known for its elaborate costumes and glitzy tango performances. It takes place in one of the city’s biggest tango theaters, and it is a truly impressive production! 

You’ll be picked up from your hotel around 8 pm and taken to the theater for a 3-course dinner before the show begins. The food is top-notch and there is no shortage of wine, so it is a great way to spend a night in the city. 

The show with dinner and roundtrip transportation starts at $122 USD per person. You do get better seats if you book the dinner as well, so we definitely think it’s worth it.

Without dinner, the roundtrip transportation and show cost $70 USD, and you’ll be picked up around 9 pm. If you want to make your own way to the venue (Tango Porteño), the tango show only is $50 USD. The show starts at 10:00 pm and lasts roughly 75 minutes.

Alternatively, if you’re looking to try this famous dance for yourself, there’s an option to take an hour-long tango class before dinner. Pickup isn’t included for this option, and you need to arrive by 7:30 pm. Prices start at $185 USD per person if you have two or more in your group.

For a tango show with a little bit of everything, check availability and book your tour online here!

El Viejo Almacen

For all the night owls, if you’re looking for a tango show that starts late and offers a more intimate experience,  El Viejo Almacen is for you. If you’re staying in San Telmo, this is a perfect option because the show takes place at a restaurant in the heart of this historic neighborhood. 

There’s a very traditional atmosphere at this show. If you’re seeking an authentic tango experience, you should definitely check this one out! The show demonstrates various types of tango, so you really develop an overall understanding of this beautiful dance.

When we went, the whole experience was flawless, from start to finish. The service, musicians, and dancers were super professional, and it was a night we’ll never forget.

Tickets for the show and an open bar cost $90 USD, or they’re $140 USD if you want to have dinner in the theater before the show begins. The dinner starts between 7:30 and 8 pm, and the dancing begins at 9 pm. Pickup is included whether or not you elect to have the dinner.

There’s also an option to upgrade to VIP seats for the best views. With the VIP option, you can do the show and drinks for $140 USD or the full dinner, drinks, and the show for $200 USD. We always love a dinner option, especially because the last stop on this itinerary includes drinking at a local bar.

This tour often has special deals, too, so be sure to check prices for your dates and book it online ahead of time!

Late Night: Uptown

Buenos Aires is famous for its nightlife, and most of the best spots are in Palermo! If you still have the energy after your dinner and tango show, we recommend heading to Uptown. It’s only a 15-20 minute Uber ride from all of the venues we listed above. 

Uptown is a speakeasy disguised as a subway station, and the entrance is through a fake train carriage. It’s a really cool spot, and they play great music if you’re inspired to dance. For a quieter option, there’s also a pharmacy-themed cocktail lounge inside as well.

They’re open nightly from 8 pm till 2 am and are open even later some days. This is a popular place and people usually have to wait in line to get into Uptown, especially on weekends. Luckily, the advantage of being a tourist in Buenos Aires is that you generally tend to arrive at places before the locals do! If you arrive before midnight, there’s a good chance you’ll get in quicker.

Once you’re inside, we suggest trying fernet con coca, which is a local favorite. Fernet is an aromatic liquor that originated in Italy, and Argentinians love to mix it with Coke. While it’s not to everyone’s taste, I ended up really enjoying it. And since you’re only in Buenos Aires for the day, we think it’s a must-try to round out your night!

About the Subway in Buenos Aires

The subway is a great way to get around!

The subway and public bus are super cheap ways to get around in Buenos Aires and it only costs around $0.40 USD per journey. It’s pretty convenient, too, although it can get very busy during rush hour. 

The only problem is that to ride the subway or bus, you need a SUBE card and these are in short supply right now. You can try to buy them in tourist assistance centers (or a centro de atencion), inside metro stations, and at any kiosk with a big blue “SUBE” sign out the front, but there’s no guarantee you’ll be able to get one. 

Having said that, we got one without any problems, and at first, we didn’t understand why other travelers kept asking us how we had managed it! It’s definitely worth checking at a few kiosks when you first arrive in the city – and that’s easy to do because they’re absolutely everywhere. 

To top up your SUBE card, just visit a teller inside any subway station. Bus drivers won’t accept cash, and when you hop on a bus, you need to tell them your destination so they can charge you accordingly. This can be a bit tricky without speaking Spanish – which is why I definitely prefer the subway instead!

If you don’t manage to get a SUBE card, Uber is still very affordable in Buenos Aires and won’t usually cost you more than a few dollars per journey. Even an hour-long ride from the airport to the city center only costs about $15 USD!

Other Activities to do While You’re in Buenos Aires

It’s incredible that you can visit Iguazu Falls on a day trip from Buenos Aires!

There is so much to see and do in Buenos Aires that you could spend weeks exploring and just skim the surface. So if you’re staying longer than one day, you’ll have no problem finding more fun activities. In fact, we also have a 2-day and 3-day itinerary should you decide to extend your visit! And to give you an idea of what’s in store, I’ve included some of my favorite ideas below!

  • Visit the River Plate Museum – The River Plate Museum is one of the biggest sports museums in the world, so it’s a must for any soccer fan. River Plate is one of the most successful soccer clubs in Argentina, and this museum located in Monumental Stadium covers the club’s entire history. You can get skip-the-line entry with this museum and stadium combo tour.
  • Gran Café Tortoni – Gran Café Tortoni is an iconic Buenos Aires coffeehouse. It’s one of the oldest cafes in the city and has even been named one of the most beautiful cafes in the world! This is the perfect place to grab a late-morning coffee or medialunas (Argentina’s mini croissants). You also buy a ticket for their weeknight tango shows.
  • Party! – Buenos Aires is known for its nightlife, and you can find a wide variety of events any night of the week. Palermo is the epicenter for trendy bars, and one of our favorite places to party is Glam Disco, a chic LGBT nightclub. San Telmo bars have a more relaxed, local vibe. For tango, beginners can head to La Catedral Club and keep the party going at La Viruta Tango Club.
  • Drink mate – Mate is a traditional Argentine beverage, made from dried and ground yerba mate leaves. A great spot to try mate is Las Cabras. However, if you really want to become a mate expert, you can book this tasting experience with two super-friendly local mate masters and learn all about this unique Argentine tradition.

Where to Stay in Buenos Aires, Argentina

If you’ve only got one night in Buenos Aires, you’ll want to find the right hotel to stay at! As you’re narrowing it down, you can take a peek at our guide to the best areas to stay in Buenos Aires. You don’t need to break the bank to stay here, but if you are searching for a luxurious getaway, you can find that too. Here are my top picks for various price ranges!

Hilton Buenos Aires – $$$

You can’t beat the location with the riverside Hilton Buenos Aires. You’ll be within walking distance to downtown as well as the Playa Reserva Ecológica Buenos Aires. There’s a rooftop pool to relax in or sit down for a meal or drink at the hotel’s restaurant or bar.

The service is exceptional, and the rooms are spacious. It’s a more expensive place to stay at $250-$350 USD per night, but worth it if you’re looking for a five-star experience. So for the ultimate luxury in Buenos Aires, book your stay at the Hilton online here.

Broadway Hotel & Suites – $$

Located in the heart of Buenos Aires, the Broadway Hotel & Suites offers really spacious rooms at a great price. The swimming pool on the roof has amazing panoramic city views and a sun deck to soak up some rays. The rooms feature large windows, minimalistic art deco-type décor, and bathrooms with marble fittings.

You’ll also have plenty of choices for shopping and restaurants nearby. Plus, a junior suite here can be under $70 USD! To snag this awesome deal, I highly recommend you check availability and book online in advance.

Selina Palermo – $

Stay in one of the trendiest neighborhoods of Buenos Aires on a budget! Selina Palermo puts you close to the best bars and nightclubs – giving you a great place to crash after a night on the town. The place feels really modern, and there are nice extras like a rooftop bar, breakfast, and bike rentals available.

Shared dorm rooms with bunk beds are around $20 USD per night. If sharing isn’t your style, there are affordable private rooms with nice balconies overlooking the city starting at around $90 USD. You can book your stay on Booking.com or HostelWorld.com to secure your room!

Planning your Trip to Argentina

Accommodation in Argentina

Booking accommodation is one of the biggest aspects of your trip, and we should know as we stay in a new hotel up to 40 times per year! Funny enough, we make 99% of these bookings on one website and that’s Booking.com – and there are a few reasons why we use this site!

Number one is the website is easy to use and sorts accommodation options. That takes the stress out of planning which honestly still affects us and we do it more than not.

Second, is the price guarantee. We have literally booked a hotel months before and then 1 week out found it cheaper (we always do a quick search), and they’ll match that price from anyone’s website including the hotels!

And third, is the Genius loyalty program. If you make a certain amount of bookings per year you get a Genius discount. We are level-two geniuses because we make more than 5 a year. At participating hotels, we get things like free breakfast included, early check-in, and up to 15% off.

You can check out all their accommodation options throughout Argentina!

Renting a car in Argentina

We rented a car in Southern Argentina and found that it was a very convenient and enjoyable way to travel!

We enjoyed a rental car for our second trip to Argentina when we travelled in Patagonia – and wow, what a way to travel! But the best part was that we only paid $40 USD per day for a 5-person sedan!

But how? Well, if you’re renting a car in Argentina, the cheapest company is Discover Cars. We often get questions from readers asking us if the website is fake because it seems too cheap! It’s a great website and the one we used for our rental.

If you do want to compare prices (and you should), do a quick search on Airport Car Rentals too. They’re another big competitor and each company often has its own deals to offer!

Tours in Argentina

Tours are a tricky one. We love booking online because we can check reviews of that exact tour but they can be pricier than booking directly in person. So for this, we often do it 50/50 – half of the time in person and the other half of the time we book tours online in advance.

When we do book online, we use Get Your Guide and Viator. Both companies offer the same service with different selections of tours and reviews on each tour.
