Cosmopolitan Buenos Aires is famed for its wide avenues, upmarket barrios, old-time cafes and traditional tango halls.
Buenos Aires is the archetypal Latin American city, with a European twist, perched on the mouth of the River Plate and bordering the immense flatlands of the Pampa. Immigration from every corner of the globe has given it a diverse, cosmopolitan feel, without ever losing its passionate Latin identity. Just as the traditional San Telmo barrio of old-fashioned cafes and leafy plazas contrasts markedly with the pristine skyscrapers of the business area, so too does colourful and lively La Boca stand at the other end of the spectrum to the solemnity of Latin America's most impressive cemetery in Recoleta. Whilst crowds gather in front of Casa Rosada (that of Evita fame) in Plaza de Mayo, the upmarket district of Palermo offers peaceful green spaces and fashionable boutiques.
