Ok here some suggestions:Palermo: dogs love Palermo! It is the most popular neighbourhood to live and will be one of the best areas for you. The challenge is: there are 7 different parts to Palermo. It’s HUGE!
So the question is: which part of Palermo, right?
· Palermo Botanico: You are close to the zoo and the big botanical gardens which are surrounded by parks. This is close to the subway station at Plaza Italia of the green line.
· Alto Palermo: It is close to the shopping mall (Alta Palermo Shopping), Plaza Guemes, or Plaza Freud (Salguero and Charcas). Republica Dominicana Street is also very close, a split street with a nice green belt that runs through the middle, lined with coffee shops and ice cream parlors in addition to the night spots around.
· Palermo Soho and Hollywood: Great places for walking. They have a Bohemian style with only a few small plazas, but it is nice and quiet. I like Plaza Armenia in Soho (Armenia and Costa Rica). There are very nice bars and restaurants lined all around the park.
Recoleta: This charming neighbourhood is home to the Cemetery (resting place of Eva Peron) and the Plaza Francia home to the weekly arts and crafts fair on Sundays (a great place for souvenirs and gifts). There is a plethora of shopping, restaurants, bars, theatres, and discos in this area.
Belgrano: This neighbourhood is a bit farther away, but anywhere close to the subway is a good option. With the green line of the subway just 30 minutes from end to end (to downtown or the Casa Rosada) you are always just a hop, skip, and a jump away from where you want to be. Belgrano is a very large neighbourhood as well, but I would recommend close to the Juramento station. Right away you will find a nice plaza (La Redonda), surrounded by bars and restaurants, and how of a weekend arts and crafts fair. If you continue toward Libertador you will find another great park as well with a dog run.
Las Cañitas: This area is flanked by the green line of the subway (a few blocks away) and Libertador avenue (which is a great place to walk). Las Cañitas is very special. It is the trendy part of Buenos Aires to live providing a home to great Bars, restaurants, fashionable shops, and a beautiful nightlife. It also borders the polo fields and is minutes walking from Palermo forest, a huge park with lots of green grass to run around on.
Puerto Madero: If you want to pay for the safest and the most expensive neighbourhood in Buenos Aires, you can choose Puerto Madero. It is located next to the ecological reserve, a huge park that has two entries on the two extremes of Puerto Madero. One is Darseña Norte, the other is Darseña Sur which is close to the Lola Mora Fountain (check it out, it is a beautiful zone). There is a walkway along the channel lined with restaurants and bars and great for evening strolls with your dog. It is 10 minutes walking from Plaza San Martin, home of the Casa Rosada, and is very central.
I always keep a look out for apartments that are pet friendly since I understand the challenge of leaving your best friend at home. I also work with 4 other trusted agencies, so there is a good chance we can help you find the right place.
