Buenos Aires, also known as the city of fury, is consecrated as one of the biggest
cities in the world and the second largest city in South America.
It was born in its glory by the Spanish expedition of Pedro Mendoza and began all its expansion along the Rio de La Plata, essentially settling its commerce and city life in the neighborhood of San Telmo, today well known for its founding history and for Tango.
The province of Buenos Aires has two airports: Ministro Pastrani Ezeiza & Jorge Newbery Aeroparque International Airport. The first is intended essentially for international flights and the second for domestic flights only.
As soon as the plane lands at Ezeiza Airport, the tourist must be prepared to get to the city, either using an Uber or a local transfer.
It is always recommended that at the airport they convert some banknotes (called “billetes” in the local language), at an official exchange office, and never on the street or with people without some reliable structure.

Argentina has two types of conversion; the first is the official conversion that is done by the banks and the parallel conversion that is always more advantageous.
However, you must be very careful with whom you exchange.

For hotels, we always recommend central hotels, in the neighborhoods of Recoleta, Palermo, Puerto Madero, San Nicolás, Montserrat and Belgrano.
Within the city there are numerous public transport options that are easy to access (metro, buses, trains, electric scooters) and best of all, they are extremely cheap.
From Tango, theater, nightlife, the beautiful parks of Palermo, the beauty of the Tigre River and among many other things that we will show through this itinerary, I invite you to take this virtual trip.

The trip

Neighborhood San Telmo

  Tango en la Cumparsita  

We begin this trip with the neighborhood of San Telmo, which expresses to the tourist all the refinement of the architecture of the 20th century. XIX and XX.
It was first inhabited by the most important and traditional families of Buenos Aires, being the most luxurious neighborhood ahead of its time.
However, after an epidemic of yellow fever and the intensification of foreign emigration, there was an exodus of these families to the north of the city, Palermo and Belgrano.
San Telmo was the center of all trade and the Mercado de San Telmo was inaugurated, from which, today, you can still take advantage of the fantastic fair of San Telmo.
In Dorrego square, from afternoon until dusk, people gather to dance Tango. It is one of the most loved places by tourists because it rescues all the essence and sensuality of Tango.
The house of Cumparsita, name given to one of the most famous tangos in the country, revives all the magic of the place. The place is relatively small, but well frequented with famous singers and musicians and the prices are very pleasant.

Caminito neighborhood

  Estadio Boca Juniors  

Going to Buenos Aires and not visiting Caminito is like going to Jerusalem and not visiting the Wailing Wall.
Caminito is located in the neighborhood of La Boca, the mecca of Argentine football, where the Boca Juniors stadium is located. There, football fans will have an immensity of souvenirs to choose from to always remember this trip.
But Caminito goes beyond the stadium. Historically, Caminito has always been the place where immigrants settled.

Characterized by conventilhos and “community” villages of the most varied colors, Caminito and its beauty of colors come from the Italian immigrants who made their home in the south of the city.
Even in poverty, immigrants shared life and language with the locals and tried to adapt their language to the local Spanish language, which gave wings to the famous Argentine accent and expressions, traits and traditions that come from Italy.
Anyone who goes to Argentina is compelled to try the famous alfajores, dulce de leche, Fernet and Argentine mate.

Caminito is a must-visit point, during the day on its esplanades there are several tango shows and other Argentine folklore dances.
I invite you to visit this neighborhood and have lunch in one of the many traditional food restaurants that can be found there.

It starts with Casa Rosada, the seat of the Argentine presidency, Cabildo, historic buildings such as Palacio Barolo, the Congress of the Nation, Café Tortoni, are all points of interest for anyone visiting Buenos Aires.
In a straight line on the same Avenida de Mayo, from the Casa Rosada to the Congress, passing through the Plaza de Mayo and the Plaza del Congreso, the tourist must do it completely on foot.

Calle Florida is another point of interest, with many places to shop and also famous for the Tango danced in the street.

At night, several typical restaurants and bars gather in the square, inviting tourists to try the delicacies, starting with the Argentine asado.

Finally, a view of the University of Buenos Aires, Faculty of Law, impresses on the main avenue for its architecture that refers to Roman temples.

Palermo is famous for its Bosques de Palermo, where Argentines enjoy sunny afternoons and drink their mate, in front of Lake Palermo. It is such a natural place, so full of greenery and animals, that it is impressive for being in the center of the city.

At night, Palermo surprises with its nightlife. An immensity of bars and clubs for all ages and for all tastes. In Palermo, the night really is a raging child.
