My husband and I live in Washington DC with our 4 children. My family is Argentine and lives in Buenos Aires, so we maintain this apartment as a place to stay when we visit 2-3 times a year. It is centrally located in a great spot, residential and not at all tourist-y. Las Canitas is still considered "downtown" greater Buenos Aires. You will blend in with the locals as the trendy restaurants are all within 3-4 blocks of this apartment. My parents live in Barrio Norte (Retiro neighborhood) which is just 10 minutes by cab. We are 15-20 minutes away from any of the downtown attractions, including Teatro Colon, San Telmo, and the Casa Rosada. We are 5 minutes away from Palermo Sojo.
