Buenos Aires City Guide

Sexy, passionate and sophisticated, Buenos Aires is one of South America’s most alluring cities and the perfect place for Globe Trekker newcomer Judith Jones to find her feet…or should we say Tango heels!

Made up of distinct districts known as barrios, Buenos Aires offers something for everyone and, with the help of the oldest metro system in South America, Judith sets out to explore as many sides to this city as possible.

Presenter-Judith-Jones-dancing-the-Tango-in-BocaFrom the grand, Parisian style city centre to the multi coloured tenements of the historic Boca district and just about everything in between, Judith uncovers a breathtakingly beautiful city with a rich and multi-faceted culture.

Judith gets the Argentine take on Evita outside the Casa Rosada, enjoys a sultry tango lesson at her hotel and explores the overflowing antique markets of the bohemian barrio of San Telmo. She learns the secrets of Buenos Aires high society at Recoleta Cemetery and takes in the sites, sounds and smells of the countryside at the Gaucho street fair in the cities meat packing district.

But nothing compares to her night on the tiles at one of Buenos Aires’ trendiest Tango clubs where the cities sense of style and passion shine. But Judith’s adventure doesn’t stop there.

On two day excursions from the city Judith takes a ferry across the Rio del la Plata to the picturesque Uruguayan village of Colonia and flies west to the region of Mendoza, famous for its wine  (it is home of the much forgotten French Malbec grape now synonymous with the Argentine region) and breath taking mountain scenery.
