Last Minute Trip to Buenos Aires, First Time Solo Traveler

Jump to last reply

I am supposed to go to Paris in a couple of weeks, but I am seriously considering changing my plans and going to Buenos Aires instead. I have been to Paris many times, and I love it, but I have never been to Buenos Aires (I have had to cancel three previously planned trips due to business). I would appreciate some help with a few questions...

I am planning on spending five or six days in Buenos Aires, and I am considering a two or three day side trip. (Additionally, I am tentatively planning a stopover in Santiago as well for two or three days). For my side trip I am considering Iguazu Falls, or the Four Seasons Carmelo in Uruguay. Any comments or other suggestions for a side trip?

I am planning on staying in a boutique hotel in the Palermo area. Tailor Made looks great to me, but it is in Las Canitas; is this a good location? Does anyone have any experience with this hotel? Any other hotels in Palermo recommended? I am also considering splitting my stay, staying a couple of nights in a different hotel in a different neighborhood, perhaps in Recoleta or perhaps Faena Hotel?

I am still figuring out my dates, but the trip would be right around the beginning of May; is this a good time to go?

Does anybody know if there are soccer games around this time of year, and if so, are tickets easy to come by?

I am really a blank slate right now, any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Thank you.
