Buenos Aires’ nightlife is legendary and starts late. You’ll have time for your first tango class at a milonga, before tucking into piquant empanadas, a huge steak and a glass of fine Argentina Malbec at around 2300. Superb restaurants abound; wander around the renovated docks at Puerto Madero, try the trendy eateries of Las Canitas or the hip hangouts of Palermo Viejo. Or combine the pleasures of fine food and a dazzling tango show.
But if the city’s thrills become too intense, take a train up the coast to the pretty colonial suburb of San Isidro or take a boat through the lush jungle like delta, where you can hide away in a cabin, or retreat to a luxury estancia until you’re ready for your next round of shopping, eating and dancing.
