Older Adults Buenos Aires, a list of the best attractions that will allow you to get to know this huge city!
It is known that Buenos Aires has a large size and, therefore, many places to visit and discover. In addition, it has many attractions and activities to do anywhere you go.
For this reason, we want to recommend that you visit it with time or that you come to Buenos Aires more than once, so as not to miss anything! Likewise, when you visit this city, without a doubt, it will leave you with that sensation of not enough taste so that you come back…
We are faithful believers that tourism is not only knowing places and enlarging our list of visited cities, but rather, being able to experience each space with all the sensations they transmit. As this is our main objective, we put together a selection of the places that you cannot miss and that are better adapted to older people. Clearly, you can build the routes to your liking and even expand the options.
Very well, let’s begin to see the great guide for Older Adults Buenos Aires:
The Plaza de Mayo is known worldwide for being the most important and most emblematic site in the entire city, for this reason, we recommend you start the visit from here.
It is the Plaza that was the site of an infinite number of historical, political and social events in the country. Countless events, marches and demonstrations were (and are) held here.
Bordering the square, you will be able to visit the different important buildings of Buenos Aires such as the Cabildo, the Metropolitan Cathedral (where the current Pope Francis officiated) and the Pink House.
On Avenida de Mayo, just one block from the Plaza, you can enjoy a delicious coffee in one of the most notable, prestigious and recognized places in the city, Tortoni Coffee (Café Tortoni). Here you can access more information about this emblematic place.
Going towards the border with San Telmo, you will be able to see the Palace of the Legislature and pay a visit to the Manzana de las Luces (more information here).
We do not highly recommend that you walk along Florida Street, but if you want to have a moment of shopping, it is the best option! Here you will find stores of varied items, in addition to many people walking around.
If you continue a little further through Florida, reaching the border with Retiro, you can rest for a moment in the imposing San Martín Plaza.

A few blocks away, you will arrive at Puerto Madero, one of the most modern neighborhoods in Buenos Aires, home to endless gastronomic, cultural and high-level residential offers.
You will find beautiful art galleries, luxurious hotels, skyscrapers and huge buildings, signature restaurants, designer bars, as well as beautiful streets to walk towards the Coast.
In addition, you can get a beautiful photo on the Woman’s Bridge, see the enormous Frigate Sarmiento or walk among nature in the Ecological Reserve, cataloged as the largest green space in all of Buenos Aires.
Known as the largest Buenos Aires neighborhood, which is why it is subdivided into different names such as Palermo Soho, Little Palermo, Old Palermo, among others. But, the busiest areas are Little Palermo and Old Palermo. In the first one you will find the largest number of mansions, embassies and larger green spaces such as the famous Palermo Parks. In the second, you will see more design shops, local stores, wide cobbled streets full of trees, low houses, gourmet restaurants and many bars.
If you love the Street Art, you can join here our Graffiti Tour Palermo and see the best walls of arts of the city.
One of the neighborhoods with the greatest tradition and antiquity. The favorite to enjoy the beautiful architectural heritage, the typical cobbled streets and houses of yesteryear, which are enhanced by traditional and homemade food restaurants, as well as tanguerías.
Traditional still lifes, Tango dancers in the streets, the fairs of Dorrego Square and Defensa Street, along with antique stores, give it a different color than any other neighborhood in the city.

La Boca and Caminito
Known as the neighborhood of colors, for its squares painted in endless colors, in addition to having been the headquarters of the tenements of immigrants who arrived in the country through the port. Very close to San Telmo and Puerto Madero, it will not cost you to get here on foot.
Like an open-air museum, each street will dazzle you with some specific feature. And for this, we recommend you walk along Caminito, where you will find art everywhere. In addition, you will find several Tango dancers in the streets, accompanied by the stage of walls full of art. You can enjoy the Plastic Artists Fair every day!
