Cruise Holiday Travel Guide: Buenos Aires


The city of Buenos Aires is a must-visit for anyone hoping to explore the cultural heart of South America. You can find cruises visiting this magnificent city and other destinations around South America on our Brazil cruise deals page, or by visiting our home page and searching for Buenos Aires.

But read on to find out more about why Buenos Aires is such a great place to visit.

About Buenos Aires

Buenos Aires, literally translated as ‘Good Airs’ or ‘Fair Winds’, was so named by the Spanish sailors that arrived in the River de la Plata by the blessings of ‘the holy Virgin Mary of the Good Winds’ (‘Santa Maria de los Buenos Aires).

It is often remarked that the city is similar to a large European city, but still has a unique South American feel to it. You’ll find a huge array of dining options in the countless restaurants that line many of the streets – but good meat is what the place is really known for. You’ll find the tastiest steaks of all cuts on every corner.

You’ll need all that food to fuel your shopping (if you’re so inclined). That’s right – this is a haven for shoppers, with everything from large shopping malls to street sellers offering local goods.

Or perhaps you’ll want to take advantage of the city’s nightlife – whether pubs, clubs or rock concerts are your thing, you’ll find it here.

And then there’s some beautiful architecture to take in – perfect for photo opportunities.
