Buenos Aires, Agentina's largest city, is a seductive world capital located on the banks of the Rio de la Plata. Portenos, as the diverse people of Buenos Aires are known, possess an elaborate and rich cultural identity. Built by European immigrants, Buenos Aires often surprises first-time visitors with its resemblance to parts of Barcelona, Paris, and Rome.
Buenos Aires is more known for its world-renowned culture than famous monuments. The city, as well as the inhabitants, is characterized by pride in its character and uniqueness. The book readers in the outdoor cafés, the dancers in the smoky tango bars, and the passionate citizens discussing government and futbol (soccer) on the street-corners are all part of the essence of Buenos Aires. The city has one of the greatest and nightlife scenes in the world. Theaters, tango shows, bars, and clubs all exhibit the great South American flair.
The city of Buenos Aires is broken up into little barrios, or neighborhoods, each one with its own personality. The beautiful and prestigious Recoleta, trendy Palermo, commerce-minded Centro, timeless San Telmo , picturesque Puerto Madero , and colorful La Boca all contribute to the Buenos Aires' culture and way of life. Buenos Aires' architecture contributes indelibly to life in Buenos Aires as well. Additionally, you can take a night tour of Buenos Aires, an excursion to a soccer (futbol) match, and an Argentine Tango Tour.
Estancias and Ranches
Only a few hours from Buenos Aires there are many Estancias, or guest ranches. The Estancias are ideal for getting out of the city for a day and enjoying nature from an authentic Argentine farmhouse. Most Estancias offer a guacho show and an asado(meat grill) lunch. Many also include activities such as horseback riding, hiking, swimming pool, and access to golf and tennis courts.
