How to Visit Buenos Aires

You've heard it called the Paris of South America. But we think this claim detracts from a reality that is much more complex and uniquely Porteño (term used for Buenos Aires residents). In the early 20th century it was one of the wealthiest cities on the planet with its regal places and European architecture. Yet in the past 100 years it has weathered constant financial crashes, political upheavals, and immigration, which has transformed the city in the 21 century into something that has little resemblance to Paris. It's a place where rebirth culturally, politically and financially is the norm and today it still attracts the most educated, creative and adventurous of South America.

Buenos Aires and a Connecting Destination

Despite political and financial wear and tear from a century of booms and bust, Buenos Aires still maintains itself as a cultural and financial hub in South America. It's also reachable by way of non-stop flight from nearly all the pricipal travel destinations, meaning whether in route to Patagonia, Iguazu Falls or Machu Picchu, Buenos Aires will likely be part of the itinerary. The city is ideal for a three to four night stop over, to enjoy the beautiful architecture and the hip streets of Palermo by day, and savor an argentinian steak with some Malbec wine over a tango performance. The unique cosmopolitan rhythm contrasts nicely if you have otherwise had a nature based trip in the ice fields of Patagonia or the jungles of Iguazu.

Cosmopolitan - Visiting two of South America's most beautiful and noteworthy cities, Rio de Janeiro and Buenos Aires and stopping over in Iguazu falls in 8 days takes you to some incredible sights. One day you will be sunbathing at Ipanema Beach, the next in a jungle overlooking some of the planet's most spectacular waterfalls, and the next with a glass of Argentinian Malbec and Steak in Buenos Aires. An excellent option for couples and friends on a week vacation who are looking for a blend of nature and culture.
