Herman Vanoli says night owls will be certain to appreciate Buenos Aires.
And that’s particularly true if those night owls like hitting the dance floor.
Vanoli, director of international promotions for Visit Argentina, told a recent webinar that Argentina’s capital remains a lively place long after the sun goes down.
“Buenos Aires is a city that never sleeps,” he said. “You can go dancing non-stop.
“They say the party never ends in Buenos Aires.”
Argentina is home to tango, with Vanoli saying his homeland is the best place to learn that form of dance. Tango lessons are easily available.
Discos often don’t close until 6 a.m., Vanoli continued.
Vanoli added that different expressions of dance are only one side to Buenos Aires, which he labelled a “global and open city” that can easily be explored on foot.
He said the city is home to “eclectic architecture” and is often referred to as the “Paris of Latin America.”
He said Buenos Aires has some 51 museums, more than 36 cultural centres, and over 300 theatres, including the Colon Theatre, known for its “perfect acoustics… If you like theatre, Buenos Aires is your place.”
But Vanoli added that “continent-like” Argentina is more than Buenos Aires, saying nature enthusiasts will find over 400 protected areas in a country in which over 10% of the landscape is protected from development.
There are 18 eco-regions in the country, with particularly dramatic Patagonia known for its massive glaciers and fiords.
Another natural highlight is Iguazu Falls, which Argentina shares with Paraguay and Brazil.
Vanoli noted Argentina is the world’s fifth-largest wine producer and has over 330 wineries and vineyards open to the public. “Argentina is a country of wine. If you like wine, it’s the best place you can go.”
Vanoli said those wanting to explore Argentina by car will find good highways but distances may be long. He said the country’s route 40 takes people from northern to southern Argentina and is often compared to famed U.S. highway Route 66.
Air service is available throughout the country. Among airlines linking Argentina and the United States are Aerolineas Argentina, United Airlines, American Airlines and Delta Airlines. The scheduling of Argentina-bound flights means travellers can “sleep during the night in the plane and then you’re in Argentina in the morning,” Vanoli said.
Vanoli reported that more than 90% of Argentinians have been vaccinated against coronavirus and life in the country is “pretty normal.”
