Buenos Aires

4

Queen of La Plata

Cultural capital of South America, Buenos Aires remains one of the largest cities on the continent, serving as a point of departure for exploring the rest of the country. Most visitors remember their holiday in Buenos Aires by the city's outstanding shopping, dining, and nightlife options, as well as by its world-famous tango and milonga ballrooms. Often compared to spending time in Paris, a vacation in Buenos Aires reveals a romantic city filled with atmospheric old neighborhoods, museums, galleries, churches, and internationally renowned sporting venues (especially for the national sport, soccer). The city's residents remain fiercely proud of their hometown, a giant metropolis that looks like Europe with a distinctly South American twist.

Where to stay in Buenos Aires

Buenos Aires offers an impressive selection of budget-friendly and mid-range lodgings, as well as pricier, more luxurious options for visitors who don't mind splashing out. Good rooms are scattered across town, but your best bet for economical hostels remains San Telmo, a neighborhood on the edge of downtown. For boutique establishments and international five-star hotels, head to Palermo, Recoleta, or Puerto Madero, upscale neighborhoods drawing the majority of foreign visitors.
