Where to explore?

Some districts of Buenos Aires are so far away from the city centre you'd be forgiven for thinking you'd strayed into another city altogether. So make the most of cheap car hire in Buenos Aires by getting around the sights of the city with ease. Places that must be visited include San Telmo, the oldest of all the districts, characterised by its cobbled streets and vibrant flea markets, and the French architecture styled district of Recoleta, home to Recoleta Cemetery.

Beyond the city limits, this part of Argentina has a wonderfully rich collection of world-class attractions. If you get the opportunity, drive north for an hour to the Delta del Tigre. This is where the Parana River of Brazil flows into the River Plate. The delta is full of fascinating, tree-speckled islands and channels which you can explore by canoe.

A 90-minute drive to the north-west will bring you to the old town of San Antonio de Areco. This is where you can discover a different side of Argentina. Inhabited mainly by gauchos (Argentinean cowboys), San Antonio lives its day-to-day life by tradition. You can see the gauchos steering cattle around the outskirts of the town and witness some skilful horsemanship before settling down to a traditional barbecue at one of several excellent restaurants.
