With its bustling streets, haute fashion, sophisticated eateries and magnificent history, Buenos Aires is often called the “Paris of South America.” However, most visitors agree that this capital city feels distinctively Argentine. From the succulent grass-fed Pampas beef served in traditional parilla steakhouses to the seductive beat of the tango show palaces, Buenos Aires offers a glamorous twist on gaucho culture. Catch a polo match, spend the day browsing antiques in San Telmo or learn the tango from an expert at a local milonga. Then, end the day sipping hearty local Malbec wine and savoring extraordinary Argentinean fusion cuisine before heading out to dance the night away.
