This is where we started and finished. If you have lots of luggage I recommend arranging a tour that picks you up from the ship with your bags and deposits you at the airport later. We spent three days here before and one night after the cruise. The yellow bus tour is great. It's one of those self guided things that you can ride along and get off/on when you want at their stops. BA is, to me, just like NY city. We stayed down in the garment district at the Best Western. It isn't the prettiest location, but the people were friendly, the price was great, breakfast was included and there was internet access, microwave, blowdryer and fridge. Tip***The Peruvian restaurant three doors down is the best!!! Manos Cirollos I think is the name. Takes a while to get your food, but totally worth it. We kept going back for the ceviche everyday. If you want to experience Argentina, get out of the city. But, if you can wrap your mind around the fact that BA is like NYC you will appreciate it and enjoy it very much. San Telmo was fun. We thought the "Gaucho" tour was OK, but the food was terrible and we got the same dance exhibitions, etc on the ship without the horses, of course.
