"'Dulce de leche' and tango !" Buenos Aires by PierreZA

Buenos Aires Travel Guide: 4,820 reviews and 8,996 photos

What BA is about

Buenos Aires is an enormous city. The city is devided in to 47 districts, each with its own character.
It has grand boulevards, lined with big buildings and beautiful trees.
It has an European feel, but is also distictively South American.
The 'portenos' are very friendly people.
So it is a city with history, architecture, tango, culture, friendly people and a lot of beef!
I will go back to Buenos Aires, also to explore more of Argentina.

What is on offer?

In no particular order, these were highlights for me:

1. Tango show with dinner (it is actually no.1!)
2. A guided city tour
3. Eat at a Parilla
4. Try all the forms of dulce de leche (ice cream, liquer, etc etc)
5. Visit San Telmo Sunday Market
