Gay Buenos Aires 2022

Buenos Aires

Buenos Aires is the capital of Argentina. Its English influences are visible many of the architecture. Check out Evita’s famous balcony at the Casa Rosada, shop and dine at the fancy neighbourhood of Palermo, visit the bric-a-brac market at San Telmo and dance the tango a colourful La Boca. Gay nightlife starts late, very late. Most bars and clubs are spread over the city centre, so be prepared to pick a taxi during your bar-hopping night. Pásalo bien!

Basic planning

Basic planning

Buenos Aires is huge. Different areas can be reached either by taxi (which are very cheap), bus or metro. On your way, you'll discover all the European influences which gives BA that special flavour. Of course you have to start your day trip at the Plaza de Mayo, with the Casa Rosada, featuring the famous balcony where Evita asked the people of Argentina not to cry for her.. Then off to San Telmo, the historic area with hundreds of antique stores and tango bars. Do not miss the Sunday flea market in this neighbourhood. In the city centre, a tour through the Teatro Colón is a 'must do' for opera and theatre lovers. The Teatro Colón is one of the worlds biggest opera houses, and the tour will take you behind the scenes. Next stop is La Boca, the working class barrio at the south of the city. La Boca is famous for its colourful houses. The area of Recoleta is worth a trip too. This is one of the wealthiest barrios in town. Check out the Cementerio de la Recoleta and pay a visit to Evita Peron's grave. For fancy shopping, drinking and dining, you need to go to Palermo. Especially Palermo Viejo is stuffed with hip bars, boutique style shops and trendy restaurants.
