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

Wonderful cooking class in a local's home!

This cooking class was one of the highlights of my trip to Argentina! Shirly is a wonderful and kind person and makes you feel very welcome in her lovely home. I felt like I was cooking with a friend. She begins by making Argentinian mate tea for you to try as well as traditional alfajores, which are a type of pastry. She then shows you how to make both beef and corn empanadas completely from scratch, as well as crepes with dulce de leche for dessert. It is very hands on as you do most of the measuring, chopping, and preparing yourself with her guidance. After all the cooking is complete, you get to sit down to enjoy the food you just made. It was delicious! She also gives you a little homemade book with the recipes so that you can make them again on your own back home. The best part of the class was getting to know Shirly, learning about Argentina, and enjoying great conversation and food. She really has thought of everything to make it a lovely experience! Highly recommended!

A magic night surrounded by tango flavours: music, dance, songs, ...

It is a real special evening supported by an excellent and professional staff that entertain you for a couple hours of magic Argentinian emotions. My wife, my daughter and I enjoyed a lot the generous and tasty dinner, the good Argentinian wine, the short but nice tango lesson and the excellent tango show. It is an experience to be enjoyed for a first journey in Argentina. I highly recommend it.

Friendly, helpful driver, pleasant trip.

The car was not the nice one featured in the ad but the driver’s used small family sedan. I don’t recall seeing the GRAYSLINE logo anywhere on it. I was looking for the company’s logo with my name on it. Instead My name was written on a sheet of paper driver was holding well away from the Arrivals hall. Not a professional look. Having said that, I enjoyed the drive and driver.

Dancers excellent, food very good, tango class fun. Go!!!

We went to the tango class at 7:30 before the 8:30 dinner and had a lot of fun. It was not intimidating at all. There were all levels and ages and you danced with whomever was available, man or woman, at the moment. The dinner at 8:30 was very good and better than expected. The show started around 9:30 or 10pm and was fantastic.

Good but terrible Audio on the Boat and Buss.

The trip was good, it was a nice boatride however the Audio was terrible with subpar English on both the boat and the bus. It would be much better with headsets/headphones to listen instead because you can barely hear anything.
