I could not have picked a better area then Recoleta. In addition Juan Carlos was the perfect host. He was very attentive to my needs! I found the apartment and the neighborhood to be very safe which made me feel comfortable since I was traveling alone. After walking out the front door I had markets, restaurants, gyms and the Recoleta Mall all at my footsteps. After a few days I started feeling like a local as I maneuvered through the neighborhood, despite my elementary Spanish level. If I decide to return to BA I will certainly be in contact with Juan Carlos and you should too. The apartment itself was a beautiful loft that I found to be very comfortable and spacious. The Recoleta property made for a wonderful home away from home.
