This complex, energetic, and seductive port city, which stretches south-to-north along the Rio de la Plata has been the gateway to Argentina for centuries.

Portenos, as the locals are known, possess an elaborate and rich cultural identity. The lifestyle and architecture are markedly more European than any other in South America.

Although there are some travel warnings, Buenos Aires is not a dangerous place, just avoid wearing expensive watches and jewelry and you will be fine.
