Launch your exploration of the Argentine capital at the Plaza de Mayo

The historic core and political center of this vibrant city. Marvel at the Metropolitan Cathedral, the pink-hued presidential palace. Shop for local crafts, pottery and stained glass at one of the city’s well-known mercados (open-air markets) in the colonial Cabildo (Old City Hall)—the artisan market takes place in the courtyard.

Refrain from crying when you visit the Casa Rosada (Pink House)

The presidential palace in the Plaza de Mayo where Eva “Evita” Perón famously spoke to adoring crowds of Argentine workers. Watch the changing of the guard every hour on the hour in front of the palace, and visit the Presidential Museum where you, too, can play at addressing the plaza from Evita’s famous balcony.

Empty your wallet at the Feria de San Telmo

The colorful Sunday market at Plaza Dorrego. Bargain for silver, ceramic, crystal and other antiques while singers and dancers perform alongside the savvy street vendors. Sign up for a class at one of the neighborhood’s traditional tango salons. Then book a table for an unforgettable dinner and tango show at the historic El Viejo Almacén.

Wander the grounds of La Recoleta Cemetery

A 17th century gravesite with 6,400 grand mausoleums paying tribute to some of Argentina’s most illustrious (and/or wealthy) personalities. Visit the tomb of Eva Perón, which is always surrounded by flowers, notes, and adoring fans. Next to the cemetery, stop inside the Recoleta Cultural Center, which hosts art exhibits, experimental theater works, and the occasional music concert.

Join Argentine gourmands in Puerto Madero

Enjoy a thick, juicy steak or succulent seafood dish at any of the trendy restaurants. Stay long enough to savor a stroll, hand-in-hand, along this renovated old port area at sunset, when the city skyline forms a romantic backdrop to the shimmering waterfront.

Relax amidst the tree-lined parks of Palermo

Some of the city’s most pulsating nightlife is located. Stop in at the Zoological Gardens before popping your head into the Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes. Stay for dinner and drinks in Viejo Palermo, which houses the city’s hottest dining spots in curiously-name places such as Palermo Hollywood and Palermo Soho.

Venture into the expansive Pampas

The fertile lowlands that extend from Buenos Aires province further into this corner of South America. Visit any of the public estancias (ranches) for an adventure that could include chowing down at a traditional barbecue, horseback riding alongside a legendary gaucho (Argentine cowboy), and even an overnight stay.

Catch a ferry across the Rio de la Plata to Colonia del Sacramento

A world heritage site that’s actually in Uruguay. Crisscross the cobblestone streets of the beautifully preserved historic section built by the Portuguese in the 17th century. Jet-setting beach lovers may want to head further into Uruguay to the ultra-chic beach resort of Punta del Este.

Unleash your inner wine connoisseur with a trip to Mendoza

Known for its internationally acclaimed Malbec. Travel the wine trail across three principal wine areas: Luján de Cuyo, Maipú and the scenic Valle de Uco. You can visit dozens of vineyards offering free tastings and selling reasonably priced bottles while taking in the magnificent scenery.

Stand in awe at the breathtaking site of Iguazú Falls

Higher than Niagara Falls and one of the natural wonders of the world. You’ll want to stay at least overnight and consider visiting both the Argentine and Brazilian sides of the falls. Sign up for an invigorating rafting trip, hike alongside river trails, or wander into the lush subtropical jungle.
