Tango across Buenos Aires
Argentina’s capital, Buenos Aires, is a unique city in South America with European and Latin American heritage. Its biggest gift to the world is most arguably the Argentine tango, a sultry and social dance celebrated all year round including the World Tango Festival. Travellers of all ages will be able to create an unforgettable experience when touring the city and its main attractions Casa Rosada, the presidential palace, Plaza san Martín, a large park previously surrounding a bullfighting arena, and 16th century Plaza de Mayo.
Must-sees for everyone are the football stadium La Bombonera, and Caminito, a colourful street museum both located in La Boca. For arts enthusiasts, indulge in a fancy night out at Teatro Colón, one of the best opera houses in the world. Or visit actress and women’s rights activist, Eva Perón at her tomb in Recoleta Cemetery.
If you want to blend in with Porteño (locals), dinner starts after 9pm at the mouth watering restaurants and nightlife begins around midnight at bars and clubs. In the daytime, grab some drinks and go window-shopping at the endless cafes, boutiques, and art galleries in Palermo Soho. If you still have time, head outside of the city to visit the iconic Iguazu Falls bordering Argentina and Brazil. Free walking tours with local guides found at Freetour.com will provide you with the ultimate experience in Buenos Aires.
