Buenos Aires Honeymoon

Choosing Buenos Aires for your honeymoon is a fine choice indeed. This vibrant south American metropolis with a European feel has much to offer passionate newlyweds celebrating their union here. Couples who love to dance can learn to tango and later put their skills to the test in one of the many clubs of San Telmo. True carnivores will love parillas — Argentinian steakhouses that abound at nearly every corner. The café culture is alive and well along cobblestone streets and packed with well dressed, confident and friendly Porteños, as the city’s residents are called. The nightlife is as colorful as its streets and bars stay open all night. Buenos Aires is a shopper’s paradise with authentic leather products, antiques and designer fashion. Many local designers have set up shop in the chic area of Palermo Viejo, a once industrial and dilapidated area that has been revamped.

Check out the surprising and exciting city of Buenos Aires for an ideal honeymoon destination.

When to Go

Spring and autumn, which are opposite from the United States in terms of weather, are arguably the best times to visit and aren’t too cold or hot. It’ best to avoid January, which sees many tourist visits and oddly some businesses have limited opening hours.
