Argentina's capital is a place that will rekindle your mojo. Famous for its vibrant nightlife, European-style architecture and passionate tango, Buenos Aires' bold, sensual nature is irresistible.

You'll feel it during the day, particularly if you spot a couple dancing the tango or if you learn to dance at one of the city's many milongas or tango houses. And you'll feel it at night, as the porteños (the people of the port) are known for enjoying a drink, dinner and dancing into the small hours.

Things to do in Buenos Aires

Perhaps what makes this buzzing metropolis so memorable, and earned the nickname 'the Paris of the South', is its rich history. It's evident when you're exploring the brightly coloured seaside buildings of Caminito in La Boca, a barrio known for its edgy vibe, or wandering the cobblestone streets of San Telmo or Palermo Viejo, two of the city's oldest and loveliest areas for a day of shopping and lunching. And history is inescapable at the extraordinary Recoleta Cemetery, which includes Eva Peron's mausoleum.

Chimichurri is an intense combination of parsley, garlic, chilli, oregano and onion. It's steak's best friend.

Buenos Aires isn't only for tango lovers and historians. Foodies will also have a ball here, particularly those who love a good steak, as Buenos Aires is teeming with parrillas, or steakhouses, where you'll find your tender piece of beef grilled to perfection. In Argentina, great steak comes with a superb sauce - chimichurri is a favourite. The intense combination of parsley, garlic, chilli, oregano and onion is steak's best friend.  

Buenos Aires can be sweltering in the summer, but for the most part it enjoys a mild, steady climate. You can always take a dip at the urban Buenos Aires Playa beaches or head out on the waterways of the Tigre Delta to get a taste for the luxurious side of Argentinian urban life.
