Discover a fusion of tango, fine dining and a rich history in Argentina’s zesty capital city.
Sultry and yet exciting, Buenos Aires is a city that offers visitors a lavish experience and deserves its title of the ‘Paris’ of South America – the perfect place to start any luxury holiday to Argentina. During the day, take a stroll down the elegant boulevards and the shops will not disappoint, nor will the many chic cafes offering artisan cakes and pastries. On Sundays the market at San Telmo is highly recommended. For a cultural experience head to the colourful and photogenic Boca region or stop by the sombre and yet fascinating Recoleta Cemetery to visit the tomb of Eva Peron. As the sun goes down, the capital comes alive, with many locals out dining until long past midnight. This is the perfect time to indulge in a sensual tango show. Watch the professional dancers at a cafe streetside, or enjoy a full 4 course meal with a glass or two of local wine whilst watching the show in a theatre, either way you will be impressed by the speed in which the dancers move. If you have more than a couple of nights in the capital city, there are many options for excursions further afield. You can take a ferry across the Rio de la Plata and visit Uruguay for a day, another culturally rich country which offers visitors excellent food and some of the best beaches on the continent. For something more active, spend the day at a nearby estancia where you can experience the traditional gaucho lifestyle, horse riding and perhaps get involved whilst rounding up the cattle.
