Paris of South America

Part European, part Latin American, Buenos Aires’ grand parks and wide boulevards are the epitome of charming colonial elegance. Sophisticated and romantic, welcome to the city dubbed the Paris of South America. Be sure to siesta though; this is a city that knows how to party.

Start your day with coffee and a medialuna (croissant) in one of the city’s many artsy cafés, before heading to the Museo Evita to discover the secrets of Eva Peron. Shop in the hip boutiques of Palermo and feast on steak and red wine in the historic neighbourhood of Recoleta. As day turns to night, be swept up by a maestro to dance a steamy tango, and exchange a flirtatious glance across a crowded dancefloor of Milonga Parakultural at Salon Canning.

Combine Buenos Aires with the samba beats of Rio Janeiro, capital of carnival and football, for views of Sugar Loaf Mountain and legendary beaches, Copacabana and Ipanema.

Highlights of Buenos Aires

Tango Dancing

No holiday to Buenos Aires would be complete without dancing the illustrious tango, the seductive national dance of Argentina. And the best place to do this is in Buenos Aires’ neighbourhood milongas (tango salons). Whether you want to dance this steamy dance yourself, or just watch the locals do it, the city’s milongas are dotted throughout the city. Grab the TangoMap Guide, which gives all the information you need to know about the milongas, including best locations and times.

Cemeterio de la Recoleta

This imposing cemetery is the final resting place of some of the most famous figures of Argentina’s storied history. Wind past the neo-classical gates framed by tall Doric columns to the tomb of Eva Perón, beloved First Lady, who has the most visited tomb in the cemetery. Throughout the cemetery are elaborate marble mausoleums decorated with a wide range of architectural styles like Art Nouveau, Baroque, Art Deco, and Neo-Gothic.

Palermo

Shop the trendy boutiques of Palermo, abuzz with locals exploring the designer stores, the small artisan markets around Plaza Serrano, or drinking wine at the sidewalk cafes. The charming cobblestone streets are filled with bookstores, bars, restaurants, and expansive parks to explore amid the inimitable buzz that only Buenos Aires has.

Feria de Mataderos

For the best all-round fix of Argentine culture, head to the Feria de Mataderos. This weekly fair (April to December) shows the gauchos (Argentine cowboys) displaying their fine horsemanship skills, tango dancers igniting the streets, and row upon row of Argentine street food vendors offering choripan and pancho to munch on while you watch the lively culture of Argentina unfold around you.

Rainy Season

Autumn in Buenos Aires brings sunny weather and pleasant temperatures released from the humidity of summer. Occasional rainfall or thunderstorms can be expected but not as much as during the summer. 

We love visiting Buenos Aires in the autumn, April to May, when stunningly colourful autumn foliage to the city streets. The humidity of summer is replaced by pleasant daytime temperatures and cool night time temperatures and days are usually clear and sunny.

Spring Season

Spring in Buenos Aires is windy and unpredictable. You may experience a heat wave or see frost, and thunderstorms may occur. 

Summer is warm and humid with rain falling while the temperature is quite warm. Thunderstorms are prone to cropping up throughout the summer in Buenos Aires. 

Expect mild and temperate weather in the winter, with chilly but not freezing temperatures and occasional frost. Rainfall is usually low and the city remains dry and cool. August sees the start of the Buenos Aires Tango Festival.
