Buenos Aires city guide by Mondo
Buenos Aires Travel Guide 2012
Tango and passion
Argentina’s capital city, Buenos Aires, is the second largest metropolitan area in all of South America.
Divided into 47 distinct neighborhoods, or barrios, over 13 million people (porteños, as they are called) make their homes in the continent’s sprawling southeastern metropolis.
Often called the “Paris of Latin America,” world-famous Argentinian writer Jorge Luis Borges described one of the world’s most popular cities as a place that is “as eternal as water and air,” reflecting the romance, nostalgia and deep-rooted sense of history that is woven into the diverse tapestry that was and is Buenos Aires.
The Buenos Aires of today continues its long-standing history as one of the world’s most fashionable, chic, culturally vibrant, ever-popular and dynamic cities.
The only difficulty you might run into in Buenos Aires will be the realization that you simply won’t be able to take in all of the city’s beauty, culture, cuisine, and spirit in just one visit.
Who knows? Maybe you’ll become one of the throngs of tourists who, for this very reason, decide to stay for good.
As one of Mondoexplorer’s personal favorites, we can certainly see how the city can instantly make a porteño out of the most reluctant of travelers! more info
