Best things to do in BUENOS AIRES

Buenos Aires is huge. It is the capital of the eighth country in the world. One third of the Argentine population lives there. It can be overwhelming when planning a trip to this big city. Where do I start, what should you not skip? Do not worry. I look at your back.

This post is a consolidated, easy-to-follow guide to the best things in Buenos Aires. With these tours, neighborhoods and tips, I promise you’ll see it all!

Best things to do in BUENOS AIRES

I have lived in Buenos Aires since 2010 and have had numerous visits from friends and family. I played a guide for everyone, and with this post I recommend them to see the city.

To simplify the design I put together in Buenos Aires, the best things in ten easy to follow steps.

These ten things include the best things to see and do. There are excursions covering different capitals and neighborhoods, cooking classes that reveal the best things to eat, as well as markets and day trips to complete the experience.

At the end of the message is a map to give you a better view of the city. I’ve included all of the most popular attractions and neighborhoods that you shouldn’t miss. There are also links to my posts in Buenos Aires to help you complete your itinerary, such as an overnight guide and an ideal itinerary!


One of the best ways to see the city effectively is on foot: on foot, by bike, or by hop-on hop-off bus. The first thing I always do in a new city is walking. You will be able to cover a lot of land this way, see different parts of the city while learning everything from a local guide.

Discover the passion of TANGON

Looking at the bar is one of the most important things in Buenos Aires! If you want to dance (or learn), visit the milonga in the morning. If you really want to get lost in the dance and feel the passion I recommend going to the right tango show. There is a lot to choose from and something for every budget. Read my post to compare my 10 favorite tango shows in Buenos Aires.

TLDR: Don’t want to read this separate post and just book the most popular show? Book this at Señor Tango!

If a tango performance doesn’t fit your budget, Plaza Dorrego has Milonga after the San Telmo market every Sunday evening at 7:30 am. Locals wake up every week to dance. It’s a real (and free) experience not to be missed. The street performers of La Boca present an inexpensive tango souvenir from photos with tourists in Caminito. You could say you do it ironically, but I promise you will love it!
