Buenos Aires, Argentina
With its wide boulevards, gorgeous architecture, and rich cultural arts scene, it’s not hard to understand how Buenos Aires came to be known as “the Paris of South America”. Argentina holds the world’s highest consumption rate of beef, but don’t despair, Argentines work off all that meat by tango dancing all night in the famed milongas. Visitors to Buenos Aires become fully immersed speaking a unique brand of Castellano, only heard in Argentina!
Porteños (Buenos Aires locals) are passionate about everything; politics, philosophy and sports are not taboo subjects here! Modern day porteños share the sing song speech of their Italian cousins, along with their habit of talking with their hands! From the bustling streets of Buenos Aires and the rural vastness of Patagonia, to the splendor of Iguazu Falls and the southernmost city in the world, Ushuaia, there is boundless adventure to be had in Argentina!
