Buenos Aires Holiday Guide

The capital city of Argentina combines a European flavor with a rich history and energetic nightlife. Often called the “Paris of South America,” Buenos Aires offers tree-lined boulevards with 19th-century architecture, and colourful neighbourhoods and nightlife districts that rival the best in the world. 


A great way to get your bearings in Buenos Aires is to use the metro network, which will take you almost anywhere in the city. Start at the Plaza de Mayo, in the Downtown area. The Argentine Revolution took place here, and it’s the location of the distinctive Casa Rosada, the pink building housing the office of Argentina’s president.

Make your way to La Recoleta Cemetery where you’ll find the resting places of Argentina’s most famous people, including Eva Perón. The surrounding neighborhood is home of the city’s rich and famous and has some of the best architecture in the city.

Head north of Recoleta on the metro and you’ll find Palermo, the city’s most trendy neighborhood. Terraced houses and cobblestone streets house boutiques and cafés. Wander along the avenues to the north or, if you’re traveling with kids, visit the Buenos Aires Zoo. Return at night and enjoy the city’s best bars and nightlife in Palermo Hollywood. See a tango show or enjoy a glass of Argentinian Malbec.

Many visitors also visit Buenos Aires to shop, so if you like international designers, be sure to visit Florida and Lavelle streets in the Downtown area. For a more local experience, explore the shops in Palermo Soho and Viejo.

The port district of Puerto Madero is great for a photo opportunity looking back at the city. Head south to La Boca, spiritual home of the Boca Juniors soccer team. The neighborhood is known for its brightly colored houses and Italian influence. Catch a game at the Bombonera to experience South American passion and energy at its best.
