Buenos Aires is a thriving port-side capital defined by a rich history, vibrant culture and strong European influence, earning it the nickname ‘Paris of South America’. Countless museums covering a cornucopia of subjects; an active theatre culture; carnivorous buffets second to none; sensuous tango performances; a mosaic of architecture; and shops to fit all fancies – all these facets (and more) make up the seductive blend that is Buenos Aires. Some of the city’s highlights include the buzz of the La Bombonera Stadium; tango and milonga venues such as the Bohemian La Catedral; and heritage architecture such as that at the Cementerio de la Recoleta, where visitors can wander through a ‘city’ of massive statues and marble mausoleums.
Buenos Aires can be visited year round, but the weather is ideal during the fall months of March to May and spring months of October and November. One of the most beautiful time to visit is in November when the jacaranda trees are in bloom.
