Over the years, Buenos Aires has been variously described as the Paris of the Southern hemisphere, an elegant and enigmatic city, a teeming metropolis of football, tango, and passion. It is all of these, and more, just waiting for you to discover, experience, and enjoy.
Buenos Aires is a pulsating, passionate, cosmopolitan city. The combination of rich architectural and cultural heritage, modern creative energy, electric nightlife, unique traditions, a vibrant arts scene, extensive parks, warm, friendly hosts and spectacular cuisine makes it one of the world’s most exciting capitals.
There are dozens of reasons to visit, but perhaps the biggest attraction is the city's people. No matter how long you stay, you're bound to make friends and feel at home. Porteños, as the city's residents are called, are warm, friendly and talk for hours over a dinner or a drink. Expect to be engaged in conversations on all topics, to be invited to try mate, the local infusion and a social ritual in itself, to receive help whenever you need it, and to be always made to feel welcome.
While you are there, why not extend your stay and visit some of the innumerable natural wonders of this vast country: Iguazú Falls, Patagonia and the Andes, the glaciers of Santa Cruz, Mendoza wine country, the lunar vistas of Salta, to only name a meager few.
