From couples dancing tango in the streets of colourful La Boca to gigantic mausoleums in Recoleta or shopping in trendy Palermo Soho. Argentina’s multimillion capital, Buenos Aires, has a variety of experiences waiting for you.
Yerba mate is a traditional tea drank in social setting. The same cup and straw is used by everyone, like a peace pipe – only with tea.
The porteños – the inhabitants of Buenos Aires – are an experience in themselves: Fashionable, hot-tempered and gifted with very big egos. Shyness is not an option for a male porteño. He is a master of the eloquent ‘piropos’ – phrases of praise men give a passing woman, such as 'Heaven has just opened and an angel came down.’ You just might want to return the compliments after having your first taste of the national dish. The Asado – barbecue – consists of the juiciest steaks you have ever treated your taste buds to. Wrap the day up by dancing until your feet get sore in one of the city’s many clubs.
