About Buenos Aires

Known for activities ranging from the contagious tango to the worship of futbol demigods such as Maradona and Messi, Buenos Aires is gaining fans from around the world. And, with the price of hotel rooms, you can stay the way long as you'd like. Located in the Rio de la Plata, Buenos Aires has a decidedly European feel. In the 19th century, Italians, Spaniards, and Germans immigrated en masse, bringing their architecture, food and culture. The city, like its tango, is a blend of passion and grace. Feel its pulse at attractions such as the Museum of Latin American Art of Buenos Aires, which showcases the contemporary art movement in South America, and the Parque Tres de Febrero, the city's lush park and gathering place. Popular things to do here include taking in a traditional tango show (or class), a soccer match at Boca Stadium or an opera at the Teatro Colon. Traditional Argentine cuisine focuses heavily on beef, so try some a la parrilla (grill) or asado (barbeque). Hotels are ridiculously inexpensive and based in neighborhood. The city center (micrometer) is good for business hotels and Palermo. Retiro and Recoleta are better for atmosphere.

Square

The Plaza de Mayo is a prestigious plaza in Buenos Aires, regarded by the Argentines as the nerve center of the Republic. It is not only a historical testimony to the development of the city of Buenos Aires, but also a memorial to the independence of the Argentine Republic, which has been in existence for hundreds of years. There is a May Tower in the center of plaza square to commemorate the May Revolution in Argentina. The pink building behind the square is the Presidential Palace of Argentina.

Featured Neighbourhood

 San Telmo, the oldest neighborhood in Buenos Aires, is a multicultural part of the city that attracts locals and tourists alike. Its main square, Plaza Dorrego, hosts an ongoing antique fair; for a more organized setting, antique stores also line the streets. Visitors can test their dance skills by stopping by a tango parlor, then wander around the cobblestone streets before a mid-afternoon cafe break. San Telmo's 19th century architecture has been well-preserved, and an entire day can be spent admiring the area's unique buildings.
