Buenos Aires, Argentina's largest city, is a seductive world capital located on the banks of the Rio de la Plata. Portenos, as the diverse people of Buenos Aires are known, possess an elaborate and rich cultural identity. Built by European immigrants, Buenos Aires often surprises first-time visitors with its resemblance to parts of Barcelona, Paris, and Rome.
Buenos Aires is more known for its world-renowned culture than famous monuments. Buenos Aires, as well as the portenos, is characterized by pride in its character and uniqueness. The book readers in the outdoor cafés, the dancers in the smoky tango bars, and the passionate citizens discussing government and futból on the street-corners are all part of the essence of Buenos Aires. The city has one of the greatest entertainment and nightlife scenes in the world. Theaters, tango shows, bars, and clubs all exhibit the great South American flair.

The beautiful and prestigious Recoleta, trendy Palermo, commerce-minded El Centro, timeless San Telmo, picturesque Puerto Madero, and colorful La Boca all contribute to the Buenos Aires' culture and way of life.
