Termed the Paris of Latin America, this is the crowded capital and cultural center
of the Argentine Republic. This bustling metropolis, first established in 1536, rests
along the southern shore of Rio de la Plata.
With European influences evident in local cuisine and architecture, Buenos Aires
offers infinite attractions for global clients. A towering obelisk stands as the city's
centerpiece, dividing all sixteen lanes of the world's widest avenue. Boutique
shops and department stores overflow with leather goods and silver antiques.
Soaring palm trees provide shade to local plazas and monuments of war heroes.
The tombs of Recoleta embrace the remains of national icons, while Casa Rosada
graces the central square as a true presidential palace. La Boca, splashed with
vibrant hues, attracts travelers with pose-striking street performers and artists
that sell their perceptions through under-priced paintings. Evita, Maradona and
Gardel greet you from the balconies above. From Puerto Madero to Palermo Viejo,
provocative tango tunes permeate fashionable milongas and bars. Street cafés -
once favored by Borges - welcome guests with extensive wine lists and simple
menus. Outside the dazzling downtown district, picturesque estancias populate
the open plains. Oh, and did we mention the raucous soccer matches?
