Buenos Aires Attractions

Buenos Aires is the pumping heartbeat of South America, famed for its European cosmopolitan charm and feisty Latin soul. A mecca for the young and creative, Argentina's capital boasts an energetic undercurrent that is immediately detected upon setting foot in the city. The gamut of fabulous cultural offerings and things to do in Buenos Aires can start a first-time visitor's head spinning, but with a bit of planning and a pledge to sacrifice some shut-eye time, travelers won't have too much trouble taking advantage of a variety of the things to do in Buenos Aires. Porteños take enjoying themselves seriously and set the bar ambitiously high for visitors joining in the fun. Working on the weekend is on par with mortal sin, and locals pack their time off with eating, drinking, shopping, and dancing until Monday morning rolls around. But that doesn't mean that the fun is limited to weekend days. Visitors can dance tango, hear an orchestra, see the opera, bar-hop, visit art galleries, stroll in the park, and club 'til dawn literally any day of the week. And all of this is smartly facilitated by the cheap and efficient public transportation system that makes even the far reaches of Buenos Aires easily accessible.
