A wealth of romantic things to see, do, and taste await you in Buenos Aires!
Known as the Paris of South America, cosmopolitan Buenos Aires attracts couples in search of beauty, history, culture, exquisite architecture, fine food, and fine wines, all at affordable prices. Love is in the air, along with the tango chords. Unlike the United States, which may disapprove of a public display of serious affection, suddenly having the urge to kiss deeply and lovingly is normal and welcome in Buenos Aires.
Some are exclusive to this sophisticated city. From savoring the rich flavor of local Malbec wines to soaking up the old-world elegance of Recoleta and having the opportunity to visit a resort, a trip to Buenos Aires can provide you with unforgettable memories that will last a lifetime.
1. Visit Casa Rosada
President Juan Perón and First Lady Eva Perón were the country's most charismatic couple in the 1940s and 1950s. They lived and ruled in the Casa Rosada, the palatial presidential mansion and official residence. It was from the balcony that "Evita", defender of the poor, addressed the masses. So don't be surprised if the words "Don't cry for me Argentina" jump to your lips. On Saturdays, Casa Rosa's free guided tours are available in English and you can reserve your seats.
2. Get spokeed in Recoleta Cemetery
Even if you don't believe in ghosts, a visit to Recoleta Cemetery can haunt you. A great city of the dead, Recoleta is a fascinating place to meditate on how wealthy porteños honored their dead. The necropolis is distinguished by elaborate marble and granite mausoleums, religious sculptures, and walking paths. It is the final resting place of Eva Perón; To find it, buy a map at the door or join a tour.
On Sundays, there is a market on-site where you can buy silver jewelry, colorful handmade fabrics, leather bags, yerba mate gourds, and other local artisan products.
In addition to the cemetery, Recoleta is the neighborhood that earned Buenos Aires the nickname of Paris in South America. It is home to grand French-designed mansions, parks, restaurants, museums, shops, chocolate shops, jewelers, and other delicacies that a romantic couple can appreciate.
3. Wake Up in a Wonderful Place
Every once in a while, a hotel does everything right: rooms, service, cuisine, location. This is the Cotton Mansion. In an old townhouse on a quiet block in Recoleta, this intimate hideaway is the ideal nest for exploring the city.
The spacious suites measure between 600 and 1,300 square feet. Perhaps yours has a four-poster bed and a luxurious bathroom. On the roof there is a small heated swimming pool, some sun loungers, and a jacuzzi.
Couples wanting a city or country vacation should consider combining a stay with a trip to a sister property Algodon Wine Estates in Mendoza, at the base of the snowy Andes. Named one of the best vineyard inns in the world by Frommer's. Guests wishing to ride a horse or bike through the wine country can do whatever they want. Of course, you must love wine, or at least want to learn more about it, if you travel here.
4. Learn to Dance Tango
The city also has a sensuality, a character of its own, and this is evident in the elegant and sensual steps of the tango dancers in the milongas, in the performance spaces, and on the streets of neighborhoods like San Telmo. (If you are in the latter on a Sunday, visit La Feria de San Telmo, where you can browse for works of art, antiques, and handicrafts for sale.)
Tango is about two bodies that communicate, which is what it loves in itself. Although dancing takes time and practice to master, during the holidays you can learn the basics and improve. There are several schools that teach tango in the city. In addition, the milongas offer classes before the arrival of real tango dancers.
5. Savor the Flavor of Buenos Aires
For more than 150 years, the iconic Café Tortoni has served intellectuals, travelers and locals who enjoy chocolate with churros, draft cider beer, sandwiches, sweets and a unique atmosphere. The beloved author Jorge Luis Borges was one of the restaurant's regulars and a meeting point with wood paneling.
Carnivores will want to sink their teeth into Argentine meat. The best steak in the world is here, grass-fed, free-range, and hormone-free. You are unlikely to go wrong with the meat served anywhere. The well-known Cabaña las Lilas is worth it and, more affordable, Campo Bravo also offers excellent cuts.
