Five things to try in Buenos Aires
There’s so much to see and do in Buenos Aires! Start with a free walking tour and see what the city has to offer.
An essential when you first arrive in any city. Head to the meeting point and explore on an orientation walk. You’ll learn about Eva Peron, La Boca, San Telmo and the widest boulevard in the world. When you’re done enjoy free time to explore the area and relax at a streetside café.
Dulce de leche is a sweet, silky spread that goes well with practically everything. Spread over cakes, pancakes, and toast, so it’s a breakfast food too. It’s everywhere and it’s delicious. Alfajores are shortbread filled with dulce de leche and go perfectly with an afternoon coffee.
In just one hour by ferry, you can change the mood of your trip entirely. Colonia is a well-preserved colonial town a quick trip away from Buenos Aires. Climb the lighthouse to take in the Portuguese and Spanish architecture, walk the cobblestone streets and try a chivito uruguayo – it’s delicious.
Argentina is famous for its steak and Malbec, because red goes with red, and you should experience both. Don’t stop there though, Llama steak, Argentinian pizza and the national dish of locro are great too.
The cemetery is free to visit and one of the top attractions in Buenos Aires. Visit the graves of Eva Peron and get lost in the labyrinth of mausoleums in varied architectural styles. The Recoleta area is full of restaurants, shops and parks to wander through on your way back to the centre of the city.
