Merlo is situated 20 miles (32 kilometers) west of Buenos Aires, the national capital.
It's no surprise Merlo is so popular with vacationers from across the globe; San Luis is an Aladdin's Cave of great sights and attractions. Visit the Luis Saglietti Square and San Martin Square in and around Pilar, about 18 miles (29 kilometers) to the southeast of Merlo.
When it's time to explore beyond Merlo, why not visit the nearest regional area. Buenos Aires lies 20 miles (32 kilometers) away and is home to visitor attractions including El Solar de la Abadia Mall, Teatro Nacional Cervantes and Plaza Libertad. Xul Solar Museum, Police Museum and Plaza Serrano are also good places to head to.
Regardless of whether you're traveling on the main tourist route or the roads less traveled, picking up some handy Spanish phrases will help smooth out your journey. "¿Querría bailar conmigo?" is useful. In English, it means "Would you like to dance with me?" And, for "This gentleman will pay for everything", you can use "Este caballero pagará por todo" It's fun to give it a try!
When it is time to depart Merlo, use your last Argentine pesos on last minute keepsakes and bid a fond Adiós (farewell).
