8 Things To Do And See in Buenos Aires

A city boasting a fusion of South American and European flavors, Buenos Aires is known for being the birthplace of tango. What should you visit if you find yourself in the Argentinian capital?

  • 1. Basilica del Santismo Sacramento

    This lovely cathedral provides a sense of sanctuary from bustling daily Buenos Aires life - look out for its intricate stained glass windows.

  • 2. Casa Rosada

    The Pink House is the Argentinian presidential office. It has survived a military dictatorship and stands today as a symbol of Argentinian resilience.

  • 3. Bombonera Stadium

    La Bombonera is home turf of Argentina's biggest football team, Boca Juniors. Check out the tour of the stadium!

    A jagged, geometric exterior and works from a wide array of Latin American artists make this a must-visit for all art fans stopping by in the city.

  • 5. Palermo

    This hip, bohemian neighborhood has cobbled streets and old world flair, and is also home to a large Jewish population - enjoy Buenos Aires' immigrant heritage.

  • 6. Skydiving

    "Buenos aires" is Spanish for "fair winds," so this popular activity does the city justice. Blue skies and Atlantic waters - what more could you want?

Planning Your Visit

  • What's the weather like?

    Argentina's the country closest to Antarctica, so you can expect it to get cold in the south, but Buenos Aires has a humid subtropical climate. So it's hot, but rain and hailstorms are to be expected.

  • How long should I stay?

    Five days should be enough, but you should definitely incorporate it into a South American or Argentinian trip as a whole!

What a amazing day trip this was. My colleague and I had to visit Buenos Aires for work and luckily enough we found this company which took us to the ranch in San Antonio de Areco where we had a wonderful day with our tour guide in which we got to visit the Town of Areco and have a great day at the estancia having asado for lunch and doing some horseback riding. Loved it.

Nuestro guía ha sido impecable en la presentación de la Ciudad. Fue nuestra primera vez y nos sentimos invitados al patio de su casa, muchísimo conocimiento y mucha dedicación por parte de Hernán para que podamos entender más sobre la hermosa Buenos Aires. Todo transcurrió de manera excelente.

What an inspiring way to visit the City. We were the only in the tour and had the luck of all the guides atention, so it was a full 3 hours about Buenos Aires, we got to visit some of the most interesting buildings. And we got to take some amazing pictures of the city.

This was a great way to be introduced to Buenos Aires. Our guide made everything possible to teach us about Argentina´s history and culture. We learnt a lot and Ernesto was of great help. We will return for more tours with Signature Tours.

Wonderful way to learn about this huge City. Pick up and drop off were on time and the guide took a tremendous amount of time explaining about architecture (which we love) and since we were a small group, everything went really smoothly.
