The huge Buenos Aires is the cosmopolitan capital of Argentina, with 12 millions inhab. To know this city is a job for a lifetime, but most of the attractions are in downtown. The famous Obelisco is a monument to the argentinian flag, and nearby there is many theaters, bookstores, the financial center, the governmental palace Casa Rosada. San Telmo is the heart of Tango and also you should visit La Boca. A visit to Buenos Aires of course should include a lunch or dinner with the famous argentinian meat, perhaps as part of a Tango Dinner. Tango is a uruguayan created dance made famous by Argentina.

Even with the economic problems that is suffering Argentina, you will see around the clock activity.

During summer the weather in Buenos Aires is hot and humid. Normally 4-5 days of high temperatures are followed by one of heavy storms and rain and one of temperate weather. If you take your cruise in Buenos Aires bring with you to the port a jockey and plenty of water, sometimes the passengers need to spend hours at the open air without protection under the heavy sun. While in Buenos Aires try to avoid to take taxis on the street, sometimes the drivers can be criminals; they use taximeters. Is safer to call a Remis, as are known those taxis that have a office; ask for the fare to your destination.

And if you would like to see a fútbol (soccer) match, perhaps Boca or River, please let me know in advance to get the tickets. Your guide in Buenos Aires will be Vivian or another friend.

Please ask about the this tours, currently suspended due to the situation in Argentina.
