You’ll start your adventure with a panoramic tour of Buenos Aires. The tour of Argentina’s capital will visit the glamourous neighborhoods of Recoleta, Palermo, San Telmo, Puerto Madero and the old Italian immigrant town of La Boca.

Located in the historic Monserrat Barrio, Café de Los Angelitos for many years was an uninhibited and forgotten street corner. It was a place full of wall posters and two Cherub Angels at the top crying out to the city for redemption. Nowadays, the doors of the café are re-opened in full glory, bringing back the enchantment and passion of Tango from a lost symbolic time in the history of Buenos Aires.

Summary
In the southern hemisphere the seasons are reversed. Therefore, in Buenos Aires, December – February is the hottest time of the year as this considered summertime. Days are hot and humid with temperatures ranging from 28 – 35 Deg C (80 – 95 Deg F). This is also the most popular time to travel to the city, but it is also when locals head away from town for their own vacations. During the first 2 weeks of January many shops, restaurants and even hotels go on shut down, leaving the city feeling a little empty. June – August is wintertime, and days can be a little chilly and overcast. March – May and Sept – November offer more moderate weather conditions and are good times to travel.
