Sport fanatics can't go wrong by heading to La Boca – home to the Boca Juniors football team. Take a tour of the stadium or better yet, why not buy tickets to watch a game. If you're lucky enough to see Boca Juniors play rival team River Plate, you'll know the heart of Argentina beats right here. The atmosphere and passion is electric.
Wander along the pedestrian street Caminito with its sea of colour and bohemian vibe, where tango dancers perform and artists show their work. Take a break to relax in a café and soak up the vibrant atmosphere.
Explore Puerto Madero, a riverfront area with a distinctive blend of old and new. This shopping and business district offers ritzy restaurants and upmarket clubs. For a break from the city, nature lovers should head to the nearby Reserva Ecológica Costanera Sur, a large green park with many plants and birds.
