Trains whistle and buses roll into Retiro, a north Buenos Aires neighbourhood where monumental structures and belle époque embassies contrast with weathering enclaves in want of municipal services. Retiro's promenades wax and wane between couture shopping corridors, fast-paced transit halls, and challenging urban spaces. Regardless of Retiro's divergent appearances, one thing remains constant—the neighbourhood's ultra-easy accessibility. Getting around and beyond Buenos Aires is easy from this transit-savvy locale.See places to stay Save this neighbourhood
