About Buenos Aires

Known for activities ranging from the contagious tango to the worship of futbol demigods such as Maradona and Messi, Buenos Aires is gaining fans from around the world. And, with the price of hotel rooms, you can stay the way long as you'd like. Located in the Rio de la Plata, Buenos Aires has a decidedly European feel. In the 19th century, Italians, Spaniards, and Germans immigrated en masse, bringing their architecture, food and culture. The city, like its tango, is a blend of passion and grace. Feel its pulse at attractions such as the Museum of Latin American Art of Buenos Aires, which showcases the contemporary art movement in South America, and the Parque Tres de Febrero, the city's lush park and gathering place. Popular things to do here include taking in a traditional tango show (or class), a soccer match at Boca Stadium or an opera at the Teatro Colon. Traditional Argentine cuisine focuses heavily on beef, so try some a la parrilla (grill) or asado (barbeque). Hotels are ridiculously inexpensive and based in neighborhood. The city center (micrometer) is good for business hotels and Palermo. Retiro and Recoleta are better for atmosphere.
