Buenos Aires Holidays

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.
