Buenos Aires is one of the most beloved cities in Latin America, with a wide variety of theaters, international shows, world-famous sporting events (from popular football to glamorous polo), notable cafes, and museums.
Fileteado Porteño and Tango, declared a World Heritage Site by Unesco, are present in different corners and allow you to connect with the history and tango identity of many of the Buenos Aires neighborhoods.
City architecture combines the old and historic San Telmo neighborhood with the French-influenced palaces in Recoleta, modern skyscrapers in Puerto Madero and the magnificent public parks of the French landscape designer Carlos Thays.
The City has a wide gastronomic offer and responsible consumption. They can be enjoyed from rich and healthy meals strolling through the Palermo neighborhood, to organic food markets and busy fairs through the streets of San Telmo. Even, you can enjoy a diversity of ethnic restaurants (Peruvian, Vietnamese, Indian, Japanese and others), the traditional Spanish and Italian and the "grills" with world famous Argentine meat.
The City is also a shopping destination, with important shopping centers, such as the new Distrito Arcos, ideal for branded products at lower prices.
For nature lovers, very close to the center of Buenos Aires, is the Costanera Sur Ecological Reserve, which is a true paradise for birdwatching and is one of the most important urban reserves in Latin America.
