Situated on the shore of Rio de la Plata, Buenos Aires, the capital of Argentina, is a Latin American city, with most of its inhabitants having arrived by boat from Europe. The city has a vibrant cosmopolitan air with a subway system that runs from early morning till late at night. There are also hundreds of bus lines that run around the clock.
You’ll be Blissfully Entertained
While there is plenty to do in Buenos Aires, perhaps it’s the renowned Feria de San Telmo that’s a huge tourist attraction. The fair, with about 270 stands, is a truly bustling marketplace in an old neighbourhood of the city, and the exclusives goods for sale ensure you will walk away with plenty of antiques but also other valuable items. Wait till you see the magnificent El Puente de la Mujer, a rotating footbridge which is illuminated at night.
Treat Yourself with Edible Delights
It is said that the Puente de la Mujer represents a couple dancing the tango. When in the city it is no time to be watching your diet. Decadent Alfajores or Dulce de Leche sandwich cookies are filled with caramel, rolled in coconut and then eaten for a soft, delicious sensation. With such sweet treats, you’ll be having to buy larger clothes – but it will all have been worth it.
The Ultimate Combination of City and Nature
It’s not surprising that cosmopolitan Buenos Aires has been dubbed the ‘Paris of South America’ with its modern- and ancient buildings. If you want to escape the throb of the city, nature awaits in the form of beautiful, leafy parks where you can book yourself a park bench and allow the peace to relax and rejuvenate you. Buenos Aires is a city that won’t disappoint, providing you will all the experiences you want.
