For a small cost, you can also let your child unleash their inner artist on one of the easels which are available.
Discover Buenos Aires Street Art
One of the world’s street art capitals, walking around Buenos Aires with the kids is an absolute must! Attractive to the local and international street artists due to its many abandoned buildings and plain walls, the city is a blank canvas to the modern creative.
