A walk through the wide esplanades will leave you painted with beautiful inspiration. Some of the most inspired buildings in the city include the Barolo Tower and the Usina del Arte cultural center.
Buenos Aires is home to dozens of museums and galleries like the Buenos Aires Museum of Modern Art and Casa Roada to name just a few. The city is also home to one of the largest number of bookstores in the world, one of the most gorgeous bookstores you will ever lay your eyes on is El Ateneo, it deserves at least an hour of your time.
In addition to visual arts, the city has a strong tradition in the performing arts and if you can take in a play or a night at the opera you should do so for the experience and the venues.
Additionally, the beaches provide a great space for relaxation or to get active with activities like windsurfing and sailing. After a day on the beach, head to one of the many restaurants serving delicious Argentine fare like empanadas, chorizo or buttery Argentine steak served with chimmichurri sauce. Work it off with an evening of sultry tango at one of the many clubs that dot the city.

Buenos Aires Weather
The hot summer heat bursts to the fore in January and lasts until the beginning of March. Temperatures are in the low to mid 30s. The winter months bring in a steep cool down with numbers falling to 0 and a few degrees lower in July and August. The winter months also bring in the rainy season. The spring and fall are pleasant with temperatures in the low to mid 20s.
When to fly to Buenos Aires
The summer heat lures visitors to the beaches as well as the balm evening night life. This means flight tickets from the latter half of December through to February are high.
The cool, rainy winter months are fairly quiet on the tourist front except for the few souls who don't mind experiencing chilly Buenos Aires. This is also the time you are going to be able to snap up some flight deals and enjoy the numerous galleries, bookstores and museums without having to deal with the crowds.
Getting into Buenos Aires
Your gateway to Buenos Aires opens up in Ezeiza Ministro Pistarini International Airport. The airport is located close to an hour outside of the city center. You can use the public buses or a shuttle to get into Buenos Aires. Taxis and hired vehicles are also available and are the fastest method to get into the city, while public transport will take much longer due to all of the stops along the way.
Getting around Buenos Aires
The public bus service is quite extensive and can get you around the city center as well as the outskirts. The Buenos Aires subway system is also a great choice and connects to all of the major tourist destination points in the city center. Alternatively you can also use the taxi service as the local public transport system can get a little confusing if you don't read up on it first.
- Definitely take in one of the local weekend markets, they buzz with activity and you can find some great handmade crafts to take home with you instead of the ordinary souvenirs marketed for tourists. Remember to take a break in between the shopping to savour some traditional Buenos Aires street food, stands can be found throughout the market.
- Tango, tango, tango! You must take a tango lesson in the birthplace of the dance. There are many options and price ranges, but in the end there will be nothing better than learning to tango and then going back home to tell your "tangoed in Buenos Aires" tales. Once you learn the basic steps, head to one of the many tango clubs to practice and enjoy your new talent.
- Go wine tasting. The Buenos Aires wine scene is vibrant, although a little quiet on the international scene outside of Patagonia region exports, and there are some great vineyards that host wine tastings as well as pairing dinners. There is nothing you will enjoy more than delicious Argentine beef with a bold red.
- Take a day trip to Colonia for a little green goodness outside of the city center. You can catch the ferry and the trip is about three hours long, but the ride is gorgeous in itself and you can chat it up with the locals and learn about all the things you should do once you get back to the city proper. Alternatively, you can use the smaller boats and be there in an hour. The town itself is picturesque and perfect for strolling, enjoying lunch at one of the many authentic restaurants or settling in on the beach and relaxing the day away.
