Stay with Inspirato in lively Buenos Aires at the Alvear Palace Hotel, 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 the city. Today, the Belle Époque inspiration is still evident in every careful detail of the hotel's award-winning accommodations and white-glove service.
A precise mix of indigenous culture and European influence, the Paris of South America charms visitors with a combination of 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. Admire stained glass windows and an altar that looks like a wedding cake in the century-old, French-inspired Basilica del Santisimo Sacramento. Sample local delicacies and engage in prime people-watching at Feria de San Telmo. Fuel your sightseeing with a café con leche at a café like La Biela, located in the affluent Recoleta neighborhood and a designated historic site.
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.
A city within a city, the tombs and crypts within this cemetery (where presidents and celebrities are buried) range from serene angel statues to tall towers and ornate mausoleums coated in gold.
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 there.
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.
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 Buenos Aires 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.
