Known world over as the Paris of South America, Buenos Aires is all romance and charisma. Here, you’ll spend your days wandering grand parks and wide boulevards and taking in the faded grandeur of the colonial architecture. What makes Buenos Aires so captivating is the city’s blend of colonial elegance and Latin zest. Evenings will be spent in true Argentinian style, with Buenos Aires’ most renowned dance, the tango.

From the brightly painted houses and colourful murals of La Boca, to the fine dining and stylish shops of Recoleta, Buenos Aires’ holidays are a step into a vibrant and diverse culture. Highlights include the distinctive pink presidential palace, Casa Rosada; the Boca Juniors stadium, home to Argentina’s favourite pastime, football; and exquisite food - from steak to ice cream - wherever you wander. And of course, it wouldn’t be a holiday to Buenos Aires without a taster of tango, whether that’s watching a glamorous show or taking part in classes yourself.

A day roaming Buenos Aires

Begin your day with coffee and a medialuna (croissant) in one of the city’s many artsy cafes, before strolling to the beautiful Museo Evita, which celebrates the Argentinian heroine Eva Perón. One of Buenos Aires' coolest and most well-known neighbourhoods, take part in some shopping in Palermo, visit the rose garden at Parque Tres de Febrero or feast on a lunch of steak and red wine in the historic district Recoleta.

The evening continues in style as dusk gives way to nightfall, with a vibrant array of bars, live-music venues and restaurants to explore - most of which don’t get going until past 10pm. Find yourself trying out your newly honed tango moves on the dancefloor of Milonga Parakultural at Salon Canning or enjoying a cocktail at one of the city’s steamy jazz lounges.

Why not pair your tango with a little samba in Brazil’s Rio de Janeiro? We can craft a unique multi centre itinerary to whichever South American destinations pique your interest. Call us today.

“The amount of free things you can do in Buenos Aires is astonishing. The city even has a “greeter” program, where locals will show you around the city for free. Go to any city park and you’re likely to see people gathering for yoga or tai-chi classes, all likely offered for free.”

“Food is one of the joys of a trip to Buenos Aires. As well as steak and wine, an Argentinian culinary delight is ice cream: you’ll find numerous artisan ice cream shops in Buenos Aires, with ice cream that’s rich, flavoursome and simply delicious!”
