    Rheo is like one of the biggest gay clubs and has the best decorated patio I've ever been. Look for local gay house parties hosted by friendly Argentinians lol, they usually last til 2am then move to the clubs.

    Iguazu Falls was the highlight of my trip there, a completely different experience from Niagara Falls.

    From what I remember Human on Saturday and Rheo or Plop on Friday. Glam was also a fun club. Palacio Alsina is great with a good looking crowd buts it's a gay party held every once in awhile.

    Amerika is the only club I wouldn't recommend

    As mentioned Iguazú falls is a must. Mendoza, bariloche, a day trip to tigre, if you make it to the coast there's Mar del plata, pinamar, or carilo. If you stop by entre ríos there are hot springs.

    I was blessed to be in Buenos Aires for a total of five weeks from late April through the beginning of June this year.

    It's worth taking the Buenos Aires yellow "hop-on hop-off" bus for a day. This will give you a good overview of the central parts of the city. You can then go back and see to more depth the places which you saw while on the bus.

    Consider staying at an AirBnB property. You can save a lot of money by doing this AND your host can help guide you as well. There's a guy named "Mateo" and a young lady named "Catherine" who were great hosts. You'll know them if you search for properties on AirBnB.

    I did not really do anything "gay". However, I did go to a club called Brook in Palermo. It was wild and did not really get started until about 1am.

    I did not do anything outside of Buenos Aires. There was already too much to see and do, and I was only there for five weeks. That said, the next time I go (and I know there will be a next time soon) I will most likely go to Patagonia, Mendoza, and/or Iguazu Falls.

    In addition to seeing a "Tango Show" (La Ventana), I also managed to go to a "milonga" for a genuine, community tango experience. "Milonga del Sueño Porteño" is where I went. However, there is a gay milonga called "La Marshall" (

    Don't bother bringing dollars or euros. Use to safely change your money at near the "dolar blue" rate. Changing money on the street is dangerous. Don't use credit cards, the official exchange rate is a waste of money. Only change about ARS$3500 at a time (enough for a few days to a week) because the exchange rate changes frequently, and you don't want to end up holding a lot of pesos when you leave Argentina. Sadly, there is little to no market for changing pesos back to dollars/euros without taking a huge haircut.

    Pack light. Wear sportswear to blend in, and avoid wearing anything that looks too new, too expensive, and too flashy. Bring an old daypack with you because one that looks too new might peg you for robbery.

    I would suggest NOT renting a car if you can help it. Public transit works well, and driving in Buenos Aires is...well..."like a tango". It moves and flows suddenly, swiftly, and dangerously. The lines on the road are merely a decoration. "Radio Taxi" is the preferred taxi service if you use taxis. Bicycling is suicide.

    Also, pick up a copy of "How to Speak Argento" before you go.

    Those are a few things to consider.


    Aloha and Be Well!

    I lived in Buenos Aires for 4 years. ( dad was from there)

    As public transport the subway is a nightmare, traffic is pretty bad but the buses run 24 hours.

    The city is awesome. Las cholas Andalucía Tucumána on Rodríguez Peña in Recoleta are worth checking out to eat. If like gelato try persicco or volta over freddo

    The above advice on Buenos Aires is pretty good. I might just add a visit to one of the street markets. I liked “la Feria Caminito”.

    In terms of other places to visit while touring Argentina, I really enjoyed the penguins at the Punta Tombo Nature Reserve in Puerto Madryn and visiting “la fin del mundo” in Ushuaia

    as the last post said Puerto Madryn and Ushuaia i ll add Bariloche, Villa la angostura, Bariloche all of them are included in a region called Patagonia, also i can reccomend in Cordoba (la cumbrecita, la cumbre and other mountain places), wine region Mendoza, on the north of the country you can visit the northwest (NorOeste argentino) region, that included salta, jujuy, catamarca

    Don't miss the "Paseo del Rosedal" park in Palermo. In addition to being a splendid park with phenomenal rose gardens, there is an area where people rollerskate, play roller hockey, street dance, an Andalusian Terrace, a Greek bridge, foot-paddle boats and more.
