Where is it and what's nearby

Stunning architecture and museums delight your brain, while your heart will leap at the city’s passionate dancing, cooking and living

  • Tango should top your to-do list. Want to see it? Head to El Querandí. Want to learn it? Hit El Niño Bien
  • Get a glimpse (and taste!) of gaucho culture with a ranch day filled with music, food, wine and dancing
  • If you want an Evita moment, visit Museo Evita and the Presidential Palace’s northern balcony, where Evita addressed her adoring fans

Buenos Aires is perhaps the most cosmopolitan city in South America, where the glamour and elegance of its European roots seamlessly blends with an unmistakable Latin essence. The city that gave us the tango is known for its culture and nightlife and has earned a reputation as a gastronomic destination.

We can’t think of a better location than the one Alvear Palace occupies—in the charming and prestigious La Recoleta area, surrounded by antique shops, boutiques and museums that will keep you busy for days.

How to enjoy Argentina

What do you get if you mix Latin passion with European elegance, the only community outside Wales that speaks Welsh and a national love of soccer (futbolpasion) that is elevated to quite dizzying heights? Argentina, of course

  • For the ultimate Argentine experience, savor a melt-in-the-mouth steak dinner before catching a Boca Juniors home game
  • Perhaps understandably for a nation known for its beef, leather goods are exquisite here; treat yourself to a bag or new shoes
  • From Buenos Aires, take a boat across the world’s widest river to explore one of South America’s other iconic capitals, Uruguay’s Montevideo

The largest of the world’s Spanish-speaking countries, Argentina encompasses more than 1 million square miles of natural wonder and Latin passion. To the North there is the thunderously awe-inspiring Iguassu falls. To the South, Patagonia’s stunning Perito Moreno Glacier rumbles and cracks as huge chunks crumble into the water. To the West are the impassive Andes, reaching a peak of more than 20,000 ft near Mendoza and San Juan.

Argentina’s capital, Buenos Aires, also captures the passion and intensity of the nation’s stunning landscape. This is perhaps best witnessed in one of the city’s most famous exports; tango. Sultry, steamy, this dance of passion is not confined to professionals but practised by locals of all ages throughout the city’s dancehalls, known locally as milongas.
