Buenos Aires

With the energy of New York, the architectural feel of Paris, and the chaotic pace of a major Latin American city all rolled into one, Buenos Aires is in a class of its own. Buenos Aires is also called the “Paris of South America,” for its soaring architecture and rich European heritage. But the city and its people, known as porteños, are a study in contrasts: European sensibilities and Latin American passion; wide boulevards and cobblestone alleys; steamy tango and romping rock and roll; sidewalk cafés and soccer fanatics; bejeweled ladies draped in fur coats and children rummaging through garbage for cardboard scraps. Buenos Aires, which sprawls over 202 square kilometers and has a population of about three million, is a patchwork of distinct, fascinating communities, from the frenetic downtown and working-class tanguero neighborhoods such as La Boca and San Telmo, to wealthy districts such as Recoleta and trendy Palermo, to middle-class barrios such as Belgrano and Caballito. 

Buenos Aires by night

Discover the beauty of the exciting city's nightlife! Get to know the lights of Buenos Aires in a tour through the main city's night arteries, such as the avenues 9 de Julio, Libertador and Corrientes. May Square stands out due to the striking illumination of the Government House, surrounded by the Metropolitan Cathedral and the Historical Cabildo. There begins May Avenue, one of the main historical avenues in the city, plenty of cafés and art noveau, neoclassical and eclectic buildings dating back to the end of the 19th century and beginning of the 20th century. Café Tortoni and Los 36 Billares are just some of the historical bars that give life to the street. Puerto Madero is with no doubt one of the nicest areas in the city to enjoy a night walk, not only because it has plenty of restaurants and bars that summon hundreds of people every night, but also because the glass walls of its high buildings on the shores of the river reflect in the water their illuminated facades. Also La Recoleta neighbourhood comes to life at night, with many bars, restaurants, a mall and pedestrian streets. It is one of the busiest areas in the city at night.

Buenos Aires from the air

Departing from Jorge Newbery Domestic Airport, on the shores of the Río de la Plata, the overflights by helicopter offer different tours to see the city and its surroundings from the air. Overflying by helicopter is an unforgettable experience. The different tours fly over the city from the river to the historical downtown area and the most known neighbourhoods, such as Puerto Madero, La Recoleta and La Boca. The overflights along the shores of the river to the north allow to observe the channels of the Tigre Delta, the hills of San Isidro, Olivos' port, Martínez, Vicente López, Pilar and Escobar.
