Take Me To Buenos Aires

Take Me To Buenos Aires

When I say “Argentina,” you probably think of… football, tango and BBQ? Well, it’s more than that. Buenos Aires is a mix of Latin and European spirit. And if you ask me, it is the coolest city in South America (yes, Argentinians are a bit snobbish ha ha).

So, you are young and curious. I’ve made a list of places you have to visit. Prepare your camera because you’ll want to pose at every destination. Let’s go downtown! 
Museum of Modern Art: It has more than 7,000 pieces of art from the 1920’s to now. One of the most beautiful art creations available to visit is the Menesunda, an 11-room labyrinth. On Tuesdays, entrance is free.

Tierra Santa: Whether you are a believer or not, you have to see it. Take a trip to the Middle East. You will relive Genesis face-to-face. Walk the streets of Jerusalem with Jesus till the end of his days. I can assure you the journey ends in such a majestic way, it will give you the shivers.

San Telmo: Hey you, hipster bohemian! It’s the smallest but the oldest neighborhood of Buenos Aires. It’s a treasure fair. Narrow streets full of bars, tourists, artists, paintings, music, vintage and new all together. It’s the perfect place to buy souvenirs and hard-to-find stuff.

Rosedal: Ah… a piece of paradise. More than 18,000 roses of all kinds and colors, a giant lake, fountains, white geese, a bridge… photos and more photos. Your Instagram will explode.

La Boca: The place where “Mary of Buenos Aires” was founded in 1536. All the European immigrants started a new world here. The architecture of small colorful houses made of wood and sheet iron is unchangeable. It’s where everyone dances, sings, and listens to TANGO. 

b7

Parque de la Costa: The amusement park is on the outskirts of town. Spend a whole day of adrenaline. I’d recommend going on weekdays because there are fewer people and you can enjoy every ride. Surrounded by a river, you can explore the hidden places by boat and land and have lunch on an island.

I bet you were expecting this part… fancy some night life? 
Let’s go with the place you must visit no matter what your age. One of the biggest and most famous theatres in the world, The Colon Theatre. Pretend you belong to royalty for a night and get your dress on. There are tickets for every wallet. Get info about the next plays on www.teatrocolon.org.ar

Costanera vs Puerto Madero = Popular vs Chic 
The first is the border of the city (on the other side of the river is Uruguay). A long avenue full of food trucks where you’ll find THE Argentinian sandwich: the CHORIPAN. No one leaves the country without tasting this

The other place is the VIP side. Next to the clean water, lights, cool people and restaurants where they serve: BBQ, but on a nice plate.

All along both places there are nightclubs. There’s no difference that way. Short skirts, guys with a natural talent for sweet talk, electronic and Latin music: Cumbia and Reggaeton. Seen Miley Cyrus twerking? Well… she basically stole it from here. Prepare your butt to shake. 

Cool advice: It’s not worth taking taxis to go from one place to another. You can get a card for public transport, and with the same amount of money as just one taxi ride, you could travel all week by bus or subway. There’s even a card for tourists to get discounts from a hotel room to ice cream. You can learn more on www.turismo.buenosaires.gob.ar/en/beneficios/solicitar 

Don’t cry for me Argentina… the truth is I’LL NEVER GET BORED HERE. 
I’ll be waiting at this point…
