BARRIO NORTE/ RECOLETA
The fancy, family and student area. Loads of students that come to the city to study rent their flats in the area, and I guess those busy/ lazy students are the reason for all the restaurant deliveries around.
The area hosts some of the biggest Universities, traditional (posh) family houses and loads of shops, making it a good combination of resources.
The area is also close to some of the best Museums, art galleries and the famous “Recoleta Cementery” allowing you to do a lot of sightseeing trough their big parks during the day.
Even though Recoleta and Barrio Norte are known for being a bit pricey, if you are looking to treat yourself to some comfort in style, this is a good place to stay.
