Argentine Cultures – Useful info on Buenos Aires

Argentina is a country very well known for its agriculture. It also has an exceptional natural wealth and a unique culture that sets it apart from other countries in America. Similarly, Buenos Aires is the capital and is a must see place if you are visiting Argentina.

When to Visit Argentina

The climate in Argentina is really quite varied, as if you are travelling to another continent. In any case, in most areas you will find a rather temperate climate, i.e. around the Pampa and Buenos Aires.

If you are planning to visit Tierra del Fuego or Panagonia, you should know that the climate is cold and humid, unlike the north of the country, which is hot and rainy. For those who are looking for a hot and arid climate, the Chaco, the northwest or southeast of Argentina is the best place to visit.

Focus on Argentine Culture

First of all, in terms of music, folklore is the most popular throughout the country. However, you will also find national rock, cuarteto or cumbia. Moreover, the cities are very lively, especially in the evenings and on weekends.

Tango is also a very popular dance in Buenos Aires. Wherever you go, you will have the opportunity to admire the couples following the rhythm for a fascinating tropical atmosphere. Besides, as soon as you arrive, you will be amazed to see the open-air museum made by amateurs on the wall of the capital.

And for those who wish to have a good time in peace and quiet, the theatres offer unusual shows that you won’t find anywhere else, in private or public places. Moreover, don’t forget to try the country’s specialities such as humita, locro le dulce de leche, all kinds of pasta and pizza or pastel de choclo. Otherwise, take some time to taste the local wine still fresh!

All you need to know about Buenos Aires
