"Retiro" Retiro District Tip by MDC6

Retiro District, Buenos Aires: 25 reviews and 31 photos


Retiro is the barrio of the city where the main bus station is located, as well as the train station. Since privatization in the 90's, there aren't too many train services anymore. The picture you see here was taken from the top of the Torre de los Ingleses, and it is looking toward the train station. The Retiro Terminal de Omnibus is a good place to go if you're looking for cheap food, luggage, bootleg soccer jerseys, etc.

Address: Retiro
Directions: Pedestrian entrance on Av Ramos Mejia/Av Antártida Argentina. Take subte Linea C to Retiro. If you're going to the bus station and you're taking a cab, just tell the cab driver to take you to "el Retiro."
