Day 1: Buenos Aires

Buenos Aires - City Tour
Land Cost: $225 per person

On this half day city tour of Buenos Aires, the four parks and plazas of Buenos Aires (Plaza de Mayo, Parque Lezama and La Boca, Plaza San Martin, and Recoleta) are used to introduce visitors to Argentina, its history, its contrasts, its contradictions, and the characteristic psychology of the "porteños," the inhabitants of Buenos Aires. 

Buenos Aires - Tango Night
Land Cost: $100-250, depending on show

In the evening enjoy dinner and a show at a local tango club. Born in the outskirts of Buenos Aires at the turn of the century, the tango quickly grew to be the best-known Argentine product worldwide. The melancholic romanticism of Argentina is clearly reflected by their most unique traditional music and dance: the tango.
