In the mornings, there was something about taking a coffee and midi and walk around this park. There were always people and families reading or just sitting on the park benches and enjoying the day. Lots of shade, no mosquitos as others have posted, just perfect. If you are looking to slow down and enjoy a beautiful park, certainly try... More

This park is fantastic, you get inside and the sound of sorrounding Santa Fe and Las Heras avenues seems remote. You can walk around, look at the trees, read a book (or e-book) without nothing to disturb you, admire several nice statues both originals and replicas, and enjoy trees and plants from everywhere around the world. Nice ponds as well.... More

We had a really good morning out in a beautiful park. For us it was more of an elegant public park, typical european style, than a botanical garden. But none the less, absolutely worth visiting. We visited on a relatively cool day, and the weather was overcast. But there is an abundance of trees and shade, so I imagine that... More

Exploring the Palermo neighbourhood on a walk we dropped into this lovely green oasis of picturesque trees, cacti, scrubs, ponds. Lots of photo opportunities, lots of shade. But also lots of mosquitos especially on a day like ours when there had been a tropical downpour on the previous evening, and puddles of water were everywhere. So bring repellent! The park... More

No cost for admission. The gardens and many unusual and beautiful statues are a must-see, in my opinion. This is a perfect place to stroll in dense shade on a hot day.

This is a beautiful and beautifully-kept garden through which you can wander as you'd like, or sit on a bench and enjoy the day. Don't expect lots of flowers, at least not at the height of summer (late January) when we were there. You will instead see many trees, some statues, and some artificial ponds, all arranged by continent. A... More

A small area of botanical gardens make a nice 'walk through' but not much else. Glass houses were locked. Much looked rather run down. The butterfly gardens were also locked, though we did see a few lovely butterflies flying around. There is a map which you can ask for from the Information station, but I had to specifically ask for... More

I escaped from the heat into the cool tranquility of these gardens. They are fairly well maintained with beautiful statues and a pretty fountain. Note I think it's closed on Mondays.

The garden was a gorgeous place to walk around (just not on the grass or they'll yell at you) but I got eaten alive by mosquitos so wish I had brought bug spray! Also, a bird pooped ALL over me (hair, clothes, legs, my entire backpack), and apparently I'm not the only one this happened to. So I suggest wearing... More

After stumbling on the cat (mascotte) sanctuary in 2010 which was a joyful experience, I deliberately sought it out on a brief visit to BA on my way back to Europe from Antarctica, even staying in the locality to make sure I got time to visit. So sad. No cats! They've been "moved out", who knows where, almost certainly exterminated.... More

Staying in Palermo

Neighbourhood Profile
Best known as the largest neighbourhood in Buenos Aires, Palermo is divided into different quarters, each with its own unique identity. The high-end quarter is Palermo Chico, characterized by magnificent mansions, regal avenues, and exclusive apartment buildings, and home to the Museum of Latin American Art of Buenos Aires (MALBA), a favourite amongst locals. The largest park in the city, the Bosques de Palermo, is Palermo's most famous landmark and a popular destination for nature walks, picnics, rollerblading, and cycling. The scene becomes much trendier in Palermo Soho, a hip area known for its cool cafés and unique design stores, filled with shoppers on weekends; and Palermo Hollywood, renowned for the numerous restaurants, bars and nightclubs, which make it the preferred spot for nights out and special occasions.
