Iguassu: Argentina side

If you are staying on the Brazilian side of Iguassu (see previous post for where to stay), it is a a quick one hour drive over to the Argentina side.  You will need to bring your passports and stop and get some pecos (there is a gift shop about 10 mins before the boarder where […]

Where to stay in Iguassu

Iguazu Falls are the massive waterfalls of the Iguazu River that separate Argentine and the Brazilian state of Paraná. They are one of the 7 World Wonders so when I say it is an amazing place to visit, believe me it is! Now, when planning a trip to see such an amazing place it only seems right to stay in […]

SoHo in Buenos Aires

When I was living in New York, one of my favorite things to do on a spring weekend was walk around SoHo, grab brunch at Felix, maybe do a little shopping, and check out the street art.  For the first day of summer in Argentina, I headed over to Palermo, the SoHo of Buenos Aires. […]

Best Executive Lunch in Puerto Madero

After exploring San Telmo take a walk down to Puerto Madero.  There are tons of restaurants with great views of the water and the Women’s Bridge to choose from, but I recommend El Potrillo.  Once inside you feel like you are in an old stable that’s been converted into a fun and festive restaurant.  As […]

Steak, In Buenos Aires, It’s What’s For Dinner!

Coming from Brazil, I have had my share of delicious steaks and visited some of the best churrascarias, but I had heard that the steak in Argentina would knock my socks off…. I had made arrangements for us to attend a dinner and tango show, however the hotel had made a mistake and had booked […]

Exploring Recoleta Cemetery, Buenos Aires

I know some of you reading this think cemeteries are morbid, sad, scary etc, but the Cementerio de la Recoleta ( Recoleta Cemetery) which was built in 1946 is something you absolutely must visit.

Experience The Beauty of Recoleta and Our Lady of Pilar

Walking through the area of Recoleta in Buenos Aires, Argentina feels a lot like walking through Paris; there are beautiful gardens, historical monuments, sculptures scattered throughout, high end shopping, small craft fairs and of course some beautiful churches.  Rather than just reading through a guide book, I personally feel churches provide a wonderful insight to […]
