Capital of Argentina

It’s the city of contrasts. With a special lively vibe
All year round. Winters are mild, with temperatures between 8°C and 12°C, summer temperatures are between 20°C and 30°C with low humidity so it isn’t unbearable hot. Spring and autumn temperatures vary °C. March has the most rainy days, and September is the windiest month.
Buenos Aires is an agglomeration of the autonomous city of Buenos Aires and 24 partidos (districts) in the Province of Buenos Aires.
WHAT I LIKE THE MOST

HEALTH AND SECURITY
No reason to worry, but don’t push your luck and go walking down dodgy neighbourhoods and streets at night. Parts of San Telmo aren’t the best idea to be walking at night. Not mentioning La Boca
Argentinian Pesos, ATMs are all over the city, but bear in mind they’re on Spanish. Also, if you don’t speak Spanish, learn some basic words. Hotel staff and salesmen do speak English, but, make an effort, you’ll need it,
