Explore Buenos Aires on Your Terms
Buenos Aires is the perfect combination of South American passion and European elegance, which makes Argentina’s capital truly stand out. There is so much to see and do here, that it may be difficult to figure out where to start.
First, you can wander some of the great neighborhoods the city has to offer, such as San Telmo, the historical and political center, or La Boca, which is a historic neighborhood with a strong European flavor. You can also visit the upper-class Recoleta neighborhood, with big palaces and gardens left from when Buenos Aires was considered the Paris of South America.
Later take in a show of one of Argentina’s most emblematic displays – the tango. This passionate dance originated in the portside neighborhoods of Buenos Aires in the mid-19th century, and is now danced all over the world. It is best seen in its birthplace, however, either by catching social dancers while you are exploring the city, or by treating yourself to a spectacular dinner and show, with wonderfully choreographed performances matched with delicious cuisine.
And speaking of the cuisine, Buenos Aires has some of the best foods to be tasted. This city was designated the Ibero-American capital of Gastronomic Culture in 2017, and it shows in the culinary options that are available, from famous Argentine malbec wine and the world’s best steaks to the Italian-influenced options of pizza, pasta, and gelato on nearly every street corner. For dessert, you can try the delicate and delicious alfajores, chocolate-covered, crumbly cookies sandwiching rich dulce de leche.
Whether you are looking for history, passion, or gastronomic delights, Buenos Aires will definitely be a wonderful addition to your personalized trip to Argentina.
