Buenos Aires often has lovely weather, which makes outdoor activities and attractions all the more inviting. From sporting events to gardens to public squares, Buenos Aires has plenty of options to keep you entertained and outside under a banner of blue sky.
To get up close and personal with nature in Buenos Aires, head to the Reserva Ecologica, located beyond Puerto Madero. This large, wild parkland is a favorite among locals who come to disconnect from the city and walk, cycle or watch birds. Then for a more curated nature experience, discover the picture-perfect Rose Garden in the Bosques de Palermo, replete with manicured paths, fountains and statues, and the lush Botanical Gardens near Plaza Italia.
When it comes to sporting events, there is nothing like attending the top polo championship in Buenos Aires (and the world), the Abierto Argentino de Polo. Elite teams face off in a sport where Argentines are known worldwide for their skill. In the world of tennis, look no further than the Argentina Open, where both Argentine and international tennis stars compete.
Buenos Aires has some great museums, but its best one is actually located outside: Recoleta Cemetery. Here Argentina’s politicians, scientists, writers and other notables are laid to rest amidst a fascinating variety of mausoleums in different architectural styles.
