Old and New Buenos Aires is a 2.9 mile moderately trafficked point-to-point trail located near the city of San Telmo that offers scenic views and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for walking and nature trips and is accessible year-round.
Most of Buenos Aires's buildings from the colonial era and the early days of the republic have long since been built over, but the San Telmo neighborhood still offers glimpses of the city's past. Adjacent Puerto Madero is the fastest-changing part of town, home to some of Latin America's most expensive real estate and skyscrapers-to-be.
