Buenos Aires

The province of Buenos Aires surrounds the Autonomous City of Buenos Aires. It limits with the provinces of Entre Ríos, Santa Fe, Córdoba, La Pampa and Río Negro, while its southern coast faces the Mar Argentino. It immense territory provides a wide range of attractive proposals, not very far from the big city.

La Plata is the capital of the province. Because of its urban design, it is known as the City of the Diagonal Streets. At only 60 kms south from the Autonomous City of Buenos Aires, it is easily and quickly reached by a modern motorway. It is an interesting proposal to discover; its museums (like the Natural Sciences Museum), the active university life and its important neogotic cathedral are some of the many attractions of this city. Heading to the north, we find the Islands of the Paraná Delta, one of the richest ecosystems in the country as well as one of the most visited places of the province. The city of Tigre provides many proposals: navigation of the different channels, history and walks complemented by handicraft fairs and an amusement park for the whole family. The Atlantic Coast, the region limiting with the Mar Argentino, is a fantastic summer attraction. Its cities and villages come to life between December and March, while other strategic points, like the city of Mar del Plata, receive visitors during the whole year and are preferred destinations for business meetings. Buenos Aires is the birthplace of the Gaucho Culture. The Estancias (large cattle ranches) offer the famous asados (barbecues), folkloric shows and spectacles of creole skills on horses. There are also polo resorts, golf clubs and many other alternatives that combine recreation with lodging, in a natural green and peaceful environment. Pampas, mountains, dunes, beaches, rivers, lagoons and thermal waters are the diversity that assure fun for every tourist visiting the province of Buenos Aires.
