Northern Suburbs: Vincente Lopez, Olivos, San Isidro

The Northern suburbs are a great place to go to if you feel like escaping the city, and they are easy to get to with both buses and trains running out of Buenos Aires regularly.

San Isidro is a wealthy outpost best known for its local rugby—if you’re at all interested in the sport, definitely try to catch a game at either the CASI or SIC (Che Guevara’s club) stadiums. Wander around the leafy neighborhood and you’ll find cobbled streets, the towering Cathedral of San Isidro and a pleasant riverside park. To get there, take the train—Mitre line—from Retiro station.

Olivos, named after the olive trees cultivated here in the 1700s, is another affluent suburb-officially a city, the capital of the Vincente Lopez municipality-and is the official residence of the president (though you won’t get anywhere near the house). Anyone into golf should consider a trip to the Olivos Golf Club, one of the best courses you’ll find near Buenos Aires.

Other neighborhoods in Buenos Aires: Retiro, Puerto Madero, Recoleta, Near Buenos Aires, Tigre, Barracas, Flores, Recoleta/Barrio Norte, Villa Crespo and Once.
