Buenos Aires, Argentina Travel Guide

Last Updated: Jan 2024

Buenos Aires is still somewhat of a bargain for foreigners, though it’s not the amazing bargain it was from 2003 through 2008 or so. Still, this is a gorgeous city that feels very European and prices are still a bit lower than they are in, say, Lisbon or Barcelona.
