1. Portenos

This is the name given to the people of Buenos Aires. They are friendly, out-going, helpful and always available to practise your Spanish with you and teach you some of the local expressions.

2. History and Politics

The Guerra Sucia (Dirty War) when 30,000 plus citizens disappeared under the military dictatorship, and the enigma that made Eva Peron (Evita) a national hero are just two examples of the fascinating history and politics that are illustrated throughout this city.

3. The Steak and Wine

Steak and wine. Buenos Aires is the best place in the world for steak as the most steakhouse intense city, quality is more important than quantity despite the Argentines eating more beef per capita than any other citizenry on earth.
