Argentine Tango is the trip for city lovers with only a limited time, Buenos Aires and Montevideo along with the UNESCO world heritage town of Colonia del Sacramento with its cobbled streets and colonial houses. This trip is the most cost effective taste of South America as there are no internal flights and all the internal transport is included.
For those with a little more time it's easy to add a side trip to Iguazu falls either before or after the trip.
We start in Buenos Aires, the cultural heart of Argentina, faded grandeur is how I would describe this city, which remains one of my all-time favorite travel destinations. There is Tango, Art, great food, and of course one of Latin America's most vibrant gay nightlife cities, (though to access this you will need some major stamina, as nothing gets going before 2 am). For the first part of our trip here, we stay in the San Telmo district to discover the heart of tango and bohemian life in this historic part of the city.
There is time in Buenos Aires to head off exploring your own interests, like the art galleries, architecture, etc either on your own, or join me for daily exploring through, San Telmo, La Boca, Palermo and Plaza de Mayo. We visit Evita's resting place, take a day trip to Tegre on the coastal train, and explore the new city of Puerto Madero.
This morning we pack our bags and move hotels to explore another part of this fascinating city. Recoletta, is the "old money" part of town with world class art galleries, hip bar, and restaurant scene. A completely different feel and vibe.
In the morning we will catch the fast ferry across the Rio de la Plata to the UNESCO world heritage town of Colonia del Sacramento (in Uruguay) with its delightful cobbled streets and colonial architecture. We spend one night here, before heading on to Montevideo Uruguay's capital to explore the old center and vibrant food scene.
All accommodation is comfortable local 3-4 star hotels with the X factor, as always with our trips the accommodation is central to the interesting parts of the town, where you can walk out and go exploring from your room without the need to take taxi or transport.
Learning a few words of Spanish will help you enjoy your trip a great deal more (I only know a few words but it sure helps, yes don't expect me to speak Spanish, I don't, but I do know the city well and how the country works). All hotels will have English speaking staff.
Accommodation if you are travelling alone and happy to share, we can find you a roommate. For those who twin share and get lucky the "love'' hotel is just a few blocks away so always a solution in Latin countries where most live in the family home. Alternatively if you snore, or like your own space there is a small single supplement.
Starts in Buenos Aires (BUE) Argentina and finishes in Montevideo (MVD) Uruguay.
