  • A city so large as Buenos Aires is bound to conceal all kinds of secrets well off the tourist circuit, though sometimes right smack in the middle of town. For those travelers wanting to delve below the surface, the city's vibrant underground culture awaits not just in the more peripheral neighborhoods but sometimes right under your nose, given you know how to navigate. Classic cafes, out-of-the-way pizza joints, hole-in-the-wall theaters, and just-for-locals flea markets are only a few of the unusual and unforgettable gems just waiting to be discovered in Buenos Aires. Begin your unusual BA experience at a gaucho street fair that is literally off the beaten path - the Feria de Mataderos, a Sunday market with gaucho games (think horses racing down the blocked-off city streets, for example), folkloric music and dancing, traditional silverwork and textiles, and a sampling of the delicious cuisine from the north of Argentina. Back in town, hop on an alternative tour with Graffitimundo, Wicked Tours, or Bitch Tours for an insider's perspective on some of the most off-beat activities, sights, shops, and experiences in BA. You can also learn about Argentina's rich Jewish history at the Museo Judío, place your bets at the floating casino in Puerto Madero, or rummage through secondhand furniture, clothes, and knick-knacks at Palermo's Mercado de las Pulgas... much of the most interesting goings-on happen off the beaten path in Buenos Aires, so tap into the underground!
