Bienvenidos! A precise mix of indigenous culture and European influence, "the Paris of South America" charms its visitors with a combination of its high fashion, sultry tangos and sidewalk cafes ideal for whiling away the afternoon. At every turn, you'll find world-renowned Malbecs and expertly grilled steaks. The Alvear Palace Hotel was built by a doctor who fell in love with Paris in the 1920s and made it his mission to bring French architecture and influence to Buenos Aires. Today, the Belle Époque inspiration is still evident in every careful detail of the hotel's award-winning accommodations and white-glove service.
Enjoy a café con leche (coffee with milk) at a café. La Biela, located in the Recoleta (and near the famous cemetery), is designated a café notable, meaning its historic character is protected by law.
The marble tombs and crypts are gorgeous, ranging from serene angel statues and dignified busts to tall towers and ornate mausoleums coated in gold. Presidents and celebrities are buried here. The result is a city within a city.
Part social club, part 1930s ballroom, milongas are tango nights, and we recommend the ones at Tango Cool. There are lessons given in English, then dancing into the night afterward. Fridays feature live music.
The top local designers are found in Palermo Viejo, which showcases a number of eclectic boutiques and a variety of shopping opportunities. Keep your eyes peeled for styles from Cecilia Gadea and Maria Cher.
Considered one of the finest concert venues for acoustics in the world, the Teatro Colón is a stunning opera house. Book a tour of the venue or see a performance during your visit to Argentina.
The on-site spa and fitness centers at Alvear Palace Hotel feature oxygenating facials, body scrubs, massages, state-of-the-art cardiovascular equipment, a vitality pool and heated swimming pool.

Steak is a way of life in Argentina, grilled slowly over wood ash. Located in the San Telmo district, La Brigada is one of the most popular of all Buenos Aires parrillas. This is a traditional restaurant, filled with gaucho décor and tango music.
The trendiest neighborhood for a night on the town is Las Cañitas, which is in the Palermo district. When the weather is nice, we suggest picking a patio and doing a little people-watching. For a night of DJ dancing, head to Niceto Club.
Despite its great distance from home, if you are visiting from the U.S. or Canada, the only document necessary to enter Argentina is a valid passport. A visa is only required if you intend to stay more than 90 days.
Every year, millions of people vacation to Buenos Aires without incident. As with any large city, petty crimes such as pickpocketing, cell phone snatching and counterfeit money do occur. Extract yourself from busy areas and be watchful of your items.
Seasons are reversed in the Southern Hemisphere: summer occurs December to February; fall is March to May; winter is June to August; and spring is September to November. The weather in the "Capital of Tango" during the summer and "transition seasons" resemble that of New York City, with high temperatures, humidity and the possibility of storms. Winter is more akin to the mild climate of Los Angeles.
