Shopping

Av Las Heras is lined with souvenir shops, leather shops, chocolate stores and all sorts of places to pick up cheap Argentine trinkets. Items made of carpincho (spotted tanned hide of the capybara, a large rodent) are uniquely Argentine and sold in many of the stores.

Specialty wine stores stock fine wines, have staff who speak at least a little English and can pack your bottles for shipping. Locally produced olive oil is another fine souvenir.
