Dance your way through the night (or learn how to) in Buenos Aires. Sometimes referred as the “Paris of South America,” here you can find the best ways to twirl your feet with the art of tango, a popular type of dance in Buenos Aires. If you are the lucky recipient of two left feet, then maybe cinema be your forte. Buenos Aires is the pivotal point of Argentine Cinema for the last 100 years. Finding you way into a opera can be an alternative if you are looking for some soothing music.
