Visit Buenos Aires: get started
BUENOS AIRES TRAVEL GUIDE
What to eatEmpanadas, choripán (grilled sausage sandwich), a traditional parrillada (mixed grilled meats), dishes inspired by Argentina’s Italian heritage (from deliciously cheesy pizzas to all types of pasta), locro (meat, bean and vegetable stew) and anything with dulce de leche.
What to bring backArgentinian wine or a bottle of Fernet, alpargata shoes (light canvas shoes made in Argentina), yerba mate tea and a mate gourd, alfajores (dulce de leche cookies), and leather goods, especially the carpincho leather favoured by the country’s gauchos (cowboys).
Fun FactTango music and dance is undeniably linked to the culture and history of Argentina—it even made it to UNESCO’s World’s Intangible Cultural Heritage list in 2009! The dance was born in the underbelly of Buenos Aires in the 19th century, a product of working-class European and African descendants that was performed in seedy bars and frowned upon by the upper classes. Today, you can watch it in such swanky venues as the Teatro Astro Piazzolla, Rojo Tango or the Café de los Angelitos.
