Did you know?

The Teatro Colón is the main Opera House in Buenos Aires, and has been voted the third best in the world by the National Geographic.

Who can talk about Buenos Aires without talking about the Argentine Tango? One of the world’s most beautiful dances has its origins here and it is possibly Argentina’s most famous export. If you don’t feel like partaking in a lesson yourself, go and watch one of the many choices of spectacular shows.

Buenos Aires is THE steak capital of the world. But if you’ve got a sweet tooth, don’t leave Argentina without trying the famous dulce de leche; a thick caramel used in many different desserts.

If you want to sample some local culture, visit the Fair of the Mataderos. You will see guachos (similar to cowboys) riding beautiful horses, tango dancers in the street and a colourful array of crafts and food on the local stalls.

Argentina is one of the leading producers of wines ever since the 16th century and has approximately 1,800 wineries.
