Buenos Aires & The Pampas

Capital culture & the land of the gaucho

Introduction

Dance your way through Argentina’s vibrant capital, a city of leafy boulevards, elegant colonial-era buildings, sultry tango shows and proud, passionate, football-loving locals. Then, head out into the Pampas outside Buenos Aires to explore working cattle ranches and catch a glimpse of a bygone era, filled with faded glamour and gauchos in traditional bombacha trousers.

Buenos Aires

As the main entry point to the country, your Argentina holiday is likely to invoice a stay in the capital. And, what a capital Buenos Aires is. Grab a steak in a traditional Argentine parrilla, then wash it down with a glass of Malbec wine in a leafy square. Take in the pure passion of a football match in La Boca or browse the weekend markets of San Telmo, rounding the day off with a tango flourish at one of the city's acclaimed theatres. Cosmopolitan, historically fascinating and impossibly vibrant, Buenos Aires is urban Latin America at its absolute best.


Buenos Aires, Argentina

The Pampas

This region of fertile lowlands spreads across a huge area of eastern Argentina, much of Uruguay and the southern tip of Brazil. This vast plateau, one of South America's most impressive geographical features, is famed for its huge skies and the estancias – traditional Argentine ranches – that dot the countryside. It's here that many of Argentina's cattle herds are reared, and holing up in a country ranch for the night or two in is a real highlight of an Argentina holiday.
