Buenos Aires, Argentina’s capital city, has a climate well defined by its four seasons. That is, during spring and fall the weather and temperatures tend to be moderate. During winter, temperatures are relatively cold and sometimes tend to be very cold marked by the damp factor. On the other hand, summer tends to be hot and you may expect heavy thunderstorms during this season as well.

If moving to Buenos Aires, they should consider saving money for all the city tours available, since there are plenty of places to explore. If you weren’t born here, you should also consider taking some basic Argentinian Spanish classes due to our differences with Spanish.

Buenos Aires is a beautiful city, with a heavy European influence. However, it is a city founded by immigrants, and so, it portrays many cultures. One thing that may be of importance to someone considering Buenos Aires as their future home is university is free.you can become a doctor without paying a dime. And, the University of Buenos Aires is as open its own nationals as it is to foreigners.

Buenos Aires is, indeed one of the most remarkable cities in Latin America. This can be stated because of the rich story this city comprehends. Likewise, there are plenty of activities to dabble you want to spend some of your leisure time. It is the biggest city in Argentina and centralizes a very significant part of the economic activity of the country.

Be cautious of muggers in the streets, especially in deserted areas after sundown. Another factor to consider is taking advantage of the vast availability of public transport as much as you can, given that it is fairly cheap and reliable.

As a capital city, Buenos Aires can sometimes be loud. It is not the cleanest of the world, but it is not the dirtiest either. People are extremely friendly when they “detect” a foreign citizen. In summer it can get really hot and exhausting, but you can always look at the bright side, right?

Buenos Aires is one of the most beautiful cities in Latin America. It attracts 1,000s of tourists per year and argentians love receiving them with open arms. Its colours make everyone fall in love with our country. Known for its delicious meats, it has 100s of restaurants for a wide range of tastes.

I recommend visiting the river and the Memory Park. It has a beautiful view and you can learn a lot about history and the dictatorships that took place in Argentina. Another very tourist place is El Obelisco. It’s placed in the middle of the biggest avenue in Argentina and Latin America.
