About Buenos Aires:

Buenos Aires has always been known by its incredible cultural supply: museums, cinemas, theaters, musicals, drama, comedies, guided tours and tango. A wide variety of possibilities for all ages throughout the year.

The identity of Buenos Aires is influenced by the different immigrants that came to the Argentina, giving a cosmopolitan profile to the city. The spirit of the population is warm and hospitable and it is not rare that a chat with a local or "porteño" may end up in an invitation to visit his house.

Courtesy and respect are closely bound with the colloquial & familiar treatment. The normal greeting of men and women in Buenos Aires is a kiss on the cheek. The smile, the hug, the approach when speaking and the gestual language constitute a friendly universe of communication

The most distinguishing fact is the use of "vos" instead of "tu" for the familiar treatment, and the use of "Che" to talk to another person. The official language is Spanish, although also some regional turns can be heard. The "porteños" understand Portuguese easily and the majority speaks some English.

Banks open at 10 AM and close between 3 - 4 PM. Withdrawal of money and other transactions can also be made in automatic teller machines that work 24 hours.

Activities:

Tango:

Every one who wants to share an authentic night of pure tango comes to the Milonga of Armenia street: young people, older people, milongueros, famous people and not so famous, local and foreigners. Everybody shares the same passion.

Opera:

Teatro Colon, the pride of the "Porteños", was inaugurated in 1908 and still is the scenario of the most outstanding artists and performers of the opera and the national and international ballet.

Among the countless performances that are offered, music has a privileged place. The lovers of classical music have the possibility of choosing a wide range of concerts that are carried out in different scopes like Teatro Colon and Teatro Coliseo. Both Orquesta Filarmónica de Buenos Aires and Orquesta Sinfónica Nacional offer free concerts.

Museums:

The city offers a wide variety of museums: there are at the moment more than 100 of them, between public and private ones. Between the public ones we can mention the National Museum of Fine Arts, that reaches an international level and is free of charge. Tickets go between $1 and $2, and there are private collections that go up to $5. During 2001 the Museum of Latin American Arts of Buenos Aires (MALBA) was inaugurated. You will find an important permanent exhibition of contemporary Latin American Art in a modern atmosphere, designed for such aim.

Markets:

Craft markets are one of the most colorful offers of the city. Saturdays, Sundays and holidays, craftsmen are found in different parks of Buenos Aires.

Caminito Street Museum where 62 artists expose outdoors, is one of the most important fairs of the world in its sort.

The Antique Flea Market of San Pedro Telmo is one of the most important attractions the city. Every Sunday, Plaza Dorrego (Humberto Iº and Defensa) changes its appearance when more than two hundred seventy stands offer their singular merchandise of "antiques and old things". The bars of the area remove their tables to the street and all the bordering zone fills up with musicians, singers and dancers of tango. The Fair also organizes popular dances in relation to the neighbors of the place.

In a significant place of Buenos Aires every Sunday and holidays from April to November, from 11 AM to 7 PM, is carried out the Feria de Mataderos, a sample of Crafts and Popular Traditions of Argentina.

Festivals:

The visitor can enjoy a colorful festival of music and dance and, admire countless "gaucho" skills, races of rings and demonstrations of "tusado". Traditional games are played with lots of prizes: "sapo", "herradura", race of pocketed, "palo enjabonado". Also, you’ll be able to taste regional meals like "asado", locro, empanadas, tamales, fried cakes and tortilla.

Parks:

The Natural Park Costanera Sur is an ideal place to enjoy the contact with nature. It is possible to participate in outdoor visits and long night walks, walks with Full Moon, dawn in the beach, practice jogging, ride bicycles or, simply seat and listen to the sound of nature in action. Many of the migratory birds stop here and they even make their nests, among forests of alders, willows and lagoons.

3 de Febrero Park in the district of Palermo constitutes the great green space of the city. With the forest of the area by the famous Carlos Thays, in the decade of 1890, this zone was transformed with leafy trees, beautiful sculptures, lost paths, perfumed gardens and a magnificent lake.

Zoo:

Almost 2 million people visit this colorful stroll with magnificent pavilions that lodge an important variety of animals.

Every day at the main door of the Zoo facing Plaza Italia you can find "mateos", a horse-drawn carriage, offering rides through the highlights of Palermo Parks.

Botanical Garden:

These are the more intimately bucolic gardens of the city of Buenos Aires, a privacy that contrasts with the traffic torrent that converges in the bordering Plaza Italia. The architect Carlos Thays made the Botanical Garden his work summit. But the Botanical Garden offers more surprises when discovering the sculptures that are there. Original or reproductions, those bronzes and marbles installed in the freshness of the sources, constitute one of the most aesthetic landscapes of the city.

The Japanese Garden is a stroll that recreates the beauty and poetry of the Oriental gardens. Plants, flowers, bridges and cascades are combined, creating a climate of colors and perfumes. For children, the attractions are the bridges and the lake, where the colorful and anxious fish "Karpa" can be seen, brought originally from Japan.

The Rosedal, the Garden of the Poets and the Patio Andaluz are some of the interesting corners of Palermo.

About Palermo:

Jorge Luis Borges identifies Palermo as his childhood neighbourhood.

This eclectic neighborhood has now become the bohemian place of Buenos Aires, with its typical houses from the early beginnings of the 20th century, old trees and parks.

Palermo Viejo has become a lively marketplace for contemporary design, collectibles, antiques, and furniture. No other neighborhood in Buenos Aires offers such a concentrated mix of unique shops carrying quirky stuff, national name brands, and one of a kind luxury items.

One reason that Palermo Viejo is such a popular shopping destination is that, within a short walk, one can satisfy one's urge to browse the best of today's design, furniture and of course, restaurant, bars, coffee shops and Tango Houses.
