Buenos Aires offers endless possibilities for things to do in the city, but you can also head North to visit Iguazu falls, East to tour wineries in Mendoza, South to hike in Patagonia or West sun bathe on the beaches of Uruguay.
While other cities sleep, darkness makes Buenos Aires come alive. Nightlife is a huge part of Porteño (Buenos Aires locals) culture. People sip coffee at street side cafes until midnight, while those who want a night out will find the “discotecs” don’t close until the sun comes out.
Buenos Aires closed down its 140-year-old zoo, arguing that keeping wild animals in captivity and on display is degrading. To see wildlife, venturing to Patagonia or to the tri-border with Paraguay and Brazil will be your best bet.
