Located on the western shoreline of the Rio de la Plata off the Atlantic coast, Buenos Aires is capital of Argentina and South America's second-largest metropolitan area. This bustling Latin American megacity is frequently called the "Paris of South America" in homage to its deep-rooted European heritage and soaring architecture. But the real Buenos Aires is a beautiful mix of European sensibilities and Latin American passion and cultural undertones.
What to see
Buenos Aires is full of expansive open green spaces and parks. A huge draw for both locals and tourists is the Palermo, a stunning area located along the northern edge of the city. This neighborhood includes plenty of walking grounds, Japanese and local botanical gardens, and a large lake with paddle boat rentals. The tree-lined cobblestone streets of the Palermo district are also peppered with plenty of hip restaurants, bars, bookstores and similar boutique shops to keep the wandering traveler happily occupied.

This pedestrian-friendly neighborhood is constantly bustling with street vendors selling local, handcrafted arts and crafts. It's also the city's most famed district for the world-famous, Argentine-original dance: the tango. While on most any night of the year, travelers to La Boca can expect to see glimpses of professional Tango dancers prancing in the streets, the absolute best time to celebrate the country's dance of choice is in August. Each year, hundreds of thousands of tango-lovers descend on Buenos Aires for an 18-day World Tango Festival.
