No matter what you enjoy doing, it is almost impossible to be bored in Buenos Aires. The Argentine capital has many fun things to do – involving anything from culture to nature – and lots of them are free!
In fact, all the biggest sights in Buenos Aires don’t cost a thing. Walk through the political heart of Buenos Aires, the Plaza de Mayo, traditionally a site of gatherings and protests outside the presidential palace, the Casa Rosada. Discover the hauntingly beautiful La Recoleta Cemetery where Argentina’s rich, powerful and important were laid to rest.
If you appreciate the beauty of nature, go for a walk in the leafy Botanical Garden in Palermo, pleasantly filled with green plants and roaming cats; a long hike in the rough and tumble Ecological Reserve; or a blissful stroll through the fairy-tale setting of Buenos Aires' Rose Garden.
You can also soak up the art, culture and history of Buenos Aires without spending a thing. Try the National Fine Arts Museum with its wonderful collections of Argentine and European art, the ornate Cathedral that contains the tomb of Argentina's hero General San Martin and the Museo del Bicentenario, located in the Casa Rosada, covering 200 years of Argentine history in an afternoon.
