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?

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.

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.

Bombonera Stadium

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

Museum of Latin American Art

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.

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.

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?

Wine Tasting

Argentina counts itself among the world's biggest wine producers. Get out of the city to some beautiful vineyards and sample it for yourself on home turf.

Cementerio de la Recoleta

This is the answer to Paris' Pere Lachaise cemetery - many of the city's most famous are buried here. It's also considered one of the most beautiful cemeteries on the planet.

Planning Your Buenos Aires 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 people are saying about Buenos Aires

It was amazing, dance class ,food and show.

It was more than I expected. It was amazing. The host were wonderful, dance instructors went above and beyond to make sure everyone was having a great experience and lots of fun. The show was first class.

Nice pace and great context for the art viewed

Lucas did great job explaining the background and significance of each work. Good pace and kept group together.

Great tour, great guide, would definitely recommend

Nicolas was a super guide! Funny and really knowledgeable! I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone who wants to get a glimpse/introduction of Buenos Aires! I did it on my first day, which was perfect, since I could take Nicolas' suggestions into account and explore more on my own.

Best 3 hours you could spend to get acquainted with the city.

Great native guide with good English but passion for her city and its history. The three stops at Plaza de Mayo, La Boca and Recoleta Cemetery were short but enough to get to see other nearby sights and were well narrated. Van was quite comfortable, pickup was early, our group of 9 was a comfortable size. Guide did a great job of pointing out sites in the city as we traveled from place to place giving detailed histories. Well worth the time and the price--actually a bargain well worth it.

Fantastic way to get your bearings of Buenos Aires

We did the South tour of Buenos Aires through parts of the city I probably would never have visited had it not been for the bike tour. The bikes are relatively slow and heavy, but perfect for a flat ride through the streets and the Eco park. If you like to cycle, I would highly recommend the tour.
