Buenos Aires is just amazing. There are many things to do, see, listen, drink ... just enjoy! Long walks at night... Buenos Aires is a city to be walked... many places just to sit down, relax, have fun... good Tango! Don´t think about going to an expensive place (those recommended by the travel agencies or hotels are not the best)... go to the small places... I would try to remember the name of the place I went to.... just amazing... you could feel all the heat and passion from this wonderful dance... good wine... Take a little time to go to the museums, and if you are into photography, you will find beautiful places... It is going to be summer time,you will enjoy the colors all over the place.Dancing... all the time... Buenos Aires never sleeps! I was there twice last year... it is just amazing...let me know if I can help you with any details...
