Day 1 - Welcome to Buenos Aires!

Upon arrival in Buenos Aires, you are met and transferred to your hotel.

Welcome to Buenos Aires!
Elegant, old-worldly, with a touch of Paris here and a touch of London there, a dash of New York cosmopolitanism, and a big splash of Italian exuberance, the city also has a strong Latin America personality as well as uniquely Argentine elements such as tango bars. Here, everything is grand, on a scale fit for kings: Tourists photograph vast steaks at restaurants, Nueve de Julio avenue ranks as the world’s widest, a cemetery so fancy that it occupies one of the poshest parts of the poshest neighborhood, while the entire city fronts onto the world’s widest river. Buenos Aires never fails to impress.

Familiarize yourself with some of the most recognizable landmarks in the northern area of Buenos Aires. Visit the Recoleta neighborhood, home to many a mansion that takes you back to Argentina’s grander days. The Recoleta Cemetery is renowned for its rich architecture and sculptures that make it more of an open-air museum than a place of rest. Continue to Palermo, a district with several faces such as classic Palermo Chico and contemporary Palermo Hollywood and Soho. Head towards Palermo Chico with its impressive townhouses, tree-lined boulevards, and parks, then continue to Bosques de Palermo woods for the Japanese Garden and Rose Garden and their wonderful sculptures and lakes as well as the race track and polo grounds. Palermo Soho, meanwhile, fuses the flavor of a working-class neighborhood with contemporary twists such as ethnic restaurants, design stores, and bars. Its bohemian atmosphere makes it popular with Argentines as well as foreign visitors. Gastronomy options appeal to all palates

Welcome to the Northwest!
The Northwest, including Salta, Jujuy, and Tucumán provinces, is still a hidden treasure of Argentina. The charm and the character of this region lie in the culture and folklore of its people, in the architecture of its small towns, in the traditions and customs present in its markets, its food, its music, and its religious festivities. It is a mix of pre-Columbian civilizations and the Spanish colonial past. Known for its magnificent natural sceneries and settlements where time seems to have stopped, this area gives guests the possibility to travel back to colonial times. The city of Salta, the gateway city, is the best preserved Spanish colonial city in Argentina. Desert, cacti, high-altitude salt lakes, yungas, llamas crossing the Puna... An incredible variety of colors, climates, and activities await.
