If you go to Buenos Aires – You HAVE to do these five things

by Sam Taylor (writer), , May 20, 2015

Not every holiday has to be planned with an itinerary. Every fancied just getting away for some sun, sand and relaxation? Here is a great escape to think about next time you have the urge to jet off.

The Argentine capital has been a tourism hotspot for years – people from all over the world flock to the city for its cultural highlights, the lively atmosphere and the incredibly welcoming people. If you’re struggling to decide on a holiday destination this year – consider Buenos Aires.

You’ll find there are many different, wonderful sights to see during your stay, while there are plenty of activities for you to partake in. The food, weather (most of the time) and sandy beaches are all great benefits that will ensure you have an enjoyable time.

Casa Rosada

The presidential palace of Argentina has a fascinating history, and is certainly worth a visit whether you’re into that kind of thing or not. The Casa Rosada has been the setting for many significant moments in Argentina’s existence, such as when former president Juan Perón gave a speech from the balcony.

You can then head over to the Museo Evuta – a converted women’s shelter based in an aristocratic neighbourhood. Perón established this premises for his wife, who ran a welfare agency. Today you can view fantastic artwork, as well as various dresses she wore throughout her life.

Coffee

It’s impossible to visit a South American country and not enjoy a cup of coffee – even if you’re not normally a big fan. The freshly roasted coffee in Buenos Aires is arguably some of the best in the world, so make sure to try it before you head home.

The locals like to enjoy a cup while eating a nice crispy Medialuna (a croissant in Argentina). There is a place known as Café Tortoni that is particularly popular. It’s one of the oldest in the city, having been founded in 1858, and attracts both locals and tourists.

Boca Juniors

If you’re a sports fan, particularly football, then you absolutely have to attend a Boca Juniors game. Try to arrange your visit so that it coincides with a match, and experience one of the best stadium atmospheres you’re ever likely to see.

The fans here are absolutely amazing, watching the crowds can be as interesting as the game itself. Things can get a bit crazy, particularly if they’re playing against their arch rivals – River Plate. The Bombonera Stadium holds almost 40,000, but the noise levels make it seem like its double that figure!

Tigre

Just fourth-five minutes away from the party-town that is Buenos Aires, lies a simpler place and more relaxing getaway. Take a day to visit Tigre, with all its tropical and forested islands. There is a river bus available for the journey.

You’ll find a number of beautiful locations, plenty of which are relatively well-hidden, to relax and enjoy the incredible scenery. If you’re feeling adventurous, there are plenty of water sports for you to partake in – such as kayaking, wakeboarding and canoeing.

Tango

The famous Argentine dance, known as the Tango, is naturally popular all over the country – no more so than in the capital. If you’re a fan of dance at all, or just want to soak up the Buenos Aires culture in all its magnificence, then embrace the tango.

There are plenty of locations for you to indulge yourself, check out Tango Cool, La Marshall and La Viruta – all will welcome beginners and those who aren’t particularly skilled. You should visit the Museo Casa Carlos Gardel too – one of the most famous names in ballroom dance.

Mobile CRM

Many businesses and organisations are either operating without a CRM or have installed a CRM as their silver bullet... but it fails. Why? Because the very facilities that a CRM provides are not being utilised to their full potential...or worse.. at all!
