Buenos Aires is the capital of the Country. As such, is the center of the financial activity, as well as the most important cultural center in Argentina and the site where the Federal Government resides. People living here are known as 'portenos' for the importance The Port acquired in the development of both the City and the Country. Although immigrants populated the City over many decades, Buenos Aires developed its own identity reflected in icons such as Tango and its slang, 'lunfardo'. Three million people each day witness the relentless pace of a City that never sleeps. Things to do while in Buenos Aires.
There are Argentina tours for all interests and all tastes. For example, Day in a farm, Buenos Aires Art, Day of Tango or Dinner tango shows, Eva Peron tour, Delta or La Plata city Expedition and traditional Sightseeing City Tour.
It is hard to choose what to do while in Buenos Aires. The first idea is to spend time on Tango related activities, such as shows at night, classes, or sneaking into the many bars where thousands of locals of all ages practise the dance.
But you can enjoy much more things. Starts from museums and theaters to some of the best meals in the world, including the world reknown argentine beef.

For those who would like to know better what argentines are all about, staying at a vacation ranch is a must. To know the Gaucho is to know the argentinial local past. At a ranch, visitors will come into contact with local traditions such as barbecueing argentine's favorite meals, asados, as well as witness first hand one day in the life of Gauchos, watch their riding skills and spend time with the landowners in a friendly environment. Ranches have 'cascos' which are the central buildings of the 'estancia', where everything takes place. Most commercial ranches, the ones who allow visitors to stay for a fee, are located within 200 km of the city. It is highly recommended a visit to San Antonio de Areco, one of the oldest gaucho's settlements. Famous writer Ricardo Guiraldes used it as a model for his acclaimed 'gaucho' novel "Don Segundo Sombra". In its streets with both old and new buildings in the colonial style, visitor will find the magic and mixture of history, countrylife and the calm of a quiet small town. At the end of the tour all the visitors taste "pastelitos" (traditional argentinian sweet pie) and they don't forget to have a small sip at a Mate.
