The city of Buenos Aires has around 3,000,000 inhabitants. Buenos Aires is a huge city subdivided into several districts. It is a beautiful city full of culture and there is plenty to do and something for everyone. The city is also known as the Paris of South America.
The weather depends on the time and places you´re going to be in Argentina. During summer (January and February) it can be really hot in Buenos Aires, sometimes the temperatures rise up to 35 degrees Celsius. Temperatures will rarely fall below 0 degrees in the winter. The rain can be very fierce in Buenos Aires, so we always recommend our students to bring a raincoat, but also sufficient sunscreen.
Because Argentina is an enormous country, the temperatures differ a lot; so remember to bring your winter jacket and your bikini during traveling in Argentina
In Buenos Aires there are more do´s than don’ts. Buenos Aires is like a western city where so much happens that nothing is weird. You will see boys with high heels, a lot of people with plastic surgery, girls sunbathing top less in a thong in parks, etc. So if you don’t know what to wear or what to pack for Buenos Aires, just know that everything is possible here.
There a few things that will help you to prepare your trip to Buenos Aires. For example it is smart to bring some American dollars because of the high rate you can save some money.
It is a habit to drink mate in Argentina. It is like beer or coffee; your first sips are disgusting but after a few you will get used to the taste and you actually start to like it. Argentineans appreciate it when foreigners try their specialty.
We also recommend you to speak Spanish everywhere, even if you don´t speak it well yet. Take your notebook with you on the street and practice, or take a dictionary with you, because the Argentines appreciate when you speak Spanish and they don´t speak English well.
