Located in one of the most elegant areas of Buenos Aires, La Recoletta, this hotel is a luxury destination in itself and at walking distance to major attractions in the city: restaurants of La Recova area, bars, shopping center Patio Bullrich, and even the famous cemetery La Recoletta, a must-see attraction where Evita Peron is buried. Breakfast at the hotel is heavenly, you won’t feel hungry until dinner time.

 

El Caminito

Located in the port area known as La Boca, Caminito (small path in Spanish) is where tango first started, to take over the world via Paris few decades later. Today a very touristic destination, Caminito is nonetheless a place to see once – it has the tastes and smells of Buenos Aires like no other.

 

Tango

This sensual dance, born around 1880 in the brothels of La Boca, the impoverished harbor area of Buenos Aires, spread around the world via Paris few decades later, and is to this day a symbol of Argentina. Its major singer and songwriter was Carlos Gardel,  considered ‘the soul of tango’ and its most prominent figure. There are good places to see the real tango in Buenos Aires, among them El Viejo Almacen and Michelangelo Tango.

 

Teatro Colon
