Buenos Aires, Argentina

Buenos Aires is the capital and largest city of Argentina, currently the third-largest metropolitan Area in South America. Located by the Rio de la Plata, the widest estuary in the world, Buenos Aires offers its visitors numerous tourist options.

The heart of the city today, as in colonial days, is the Plaza de Mayo with the Casa Rosada (Pink House - Presidential Palace) and the Cathedral where San Martin, the Father of Independence is buried. The Avenida 9 de Julio is the widest avenue in the world -the obelisk commemorating the 400th anniversary of the city stands midway. Tree-lined boulevards, parks and plazas are plentiful and the skyline, resembles that of Paris. The world famous Colon Opera House spans an entire city block and offers a wide range of cultural presentations.

Buenos Aires is famous for its chic boutiques. A walk down elegant, traffic-free CalleFlorida gives the visitor almost every imaginable shopping experience. Visitors can also enjoy sidewalk cafes and excellent museums. The La Boca area is popular for its many sidewalk cafes, bars and shopping.
