I’ve previously wrote about the Microcentro neighborhood when I went to Buenos Aires earlier this year. Microcentro in Spanish translates to “small city-center” which is Centro Buenos Aires. I love Microcenter because it’s always hustling and bustling through the day filled with all walks of life. It’s also one of the best areas to exchange your US dollars for Argentine pesos in the black market.

You can find many theaters in Microcentro such as Teatro El Nacional and the famous Teatro Colon. There is no shortage of theaters that features the musicals, plays, opera, and the famous tango that Buenos Aires is known for.
Microcentro is also home to many beautiful buildings and shops. You can find lots of shopping to be had on Calle Florida and all around Avenida Corrientes. Calle Florida is a great place to find casa de cambios, but be aware of fake Argentine pesos (double check your notes).
I also love Lavalle street which is a pedestrian only street filled with shops and restaurants.
There’s a lot of green space and parks located all along the main Avenida 9 de Julio highway in Microcentro. It’s a great place to relax and a great way to people watch.
The most famous monument in Microcentro is the Obelisco which is the obelisk, a miniature version of the Washington Monument.
