Four words to describe La Boca… Colour, culture, artwork, AWESOME! La Boca is a must see as it perfectly captures quintessential Buenos Aires. Follow the multi-colured road to enjoy quirky shops, delicious restaurants, Latino live music and cool artwork on every corner. If you go to Buenos Aires and don’t visit La Boca, some would call you crazy!

You’ve been Tango’ed

Tango

Buenos Aires breathes tango (the dance, not the fizzy drink!) You’ve mastered the Macarena, the Cha cha slide AND the dab, so now it’s time to learn how to move like the Latinos. You’ll find tango school, tango nightly shows AND tango in the streets, so throw yourself into Ar-gentian culture and put on your dancing shoes. There’s no better place on earth for it.

San Telmo Street Market

Do you like a good market browse? Then head to San Telmo and experience an open air market like no other. Since the 1970’s some 10,000 people have been descending upon Plaza Dorrego for the Feria de San Telmo each Sunday. It began as a small antique fair, but now there are around 300 vendors selling all things weird and wonderful.
