The airport is also an easy distance from the city centre, set at 22km from the downtown area, and can be reached by buses, shuttles, and taxis. The latter option is one of the most convenient ways into the city, but it is advised that you pre-book your journey within the airport, otherwise expect to haggle. The drive should take around 45 minutes.

Why visit Buenos Aires?

 

The cobbled streets of Buenos Aires will evoke a conflicting sense of emotions. You will feel the red hot passion of Latin culture, the staid influence of the old European architecture, and be moved by the history of the indigenous peoples of Argentina. Added to that, this city is a rollicking good time; with a ton of museums, a host of delicious eateries, and a warm and welcoming people to boot. It is impossible to step onto the avenues, squares, and laneways of Buenos Aires without wanting to get to know every facet of its charming personality.

 

Things to do in Buenos Aires

 

Spend some time in this fantastic city exploring its colonial heart. Wander through the Plaza de Mayo, and past the Presidential Palace, where the former first lady Evita once stood on the pale pink balcony welcoming her adoring crowd. There are several buildings in this area of note, and worth a look in, such as the Cabildo, and its accompanying museum that investigates the city’s history. If you have time, you should also make a side trip to the Metropolitan Cathedral, built in the Palladian style and one of the finest buildings in the city.

 

Nearby this central point, you can find most of Buenos Aires’ cultural attractions too, with the Colon Theatre, and the famous Latin American Art Museum of Buenos Aires (also called MALBA) just north of the plaza.

 

For a little culture outside of museums, head on down to the lively La Boca district, where you can see tango dancers take to the street, pick up local crafts, and enjoy some of the restaurants in this happening district.

 

Then for some time to contemplate the city, and find a little slice of quiet, go to the lush Botanical Gardens, one of the loveliest parts of this city, and a favourite haunt for many locals on a sunny day.
