Strongly influenced by European culture, Buenos Aires is sometimes referred to as the "Paris of South America".The city has the busiest live theatre industry in Latin America, with scores of theaters and productions. In fact, every weekend, there are about 300 active theatres with plays, a number that places the city as 1st worldwide, more than either London, New York or Paris. 

Buenos Aires is the site of the Teatro Colón, an internationally rated opera house. There are several symphony orchestras and choral societies. The city has numerous museums related to history, fine arts, modern arts, decorative arts, popular arts, sacred art, arts and crafts, theatre and popular music, as well as the preserved homes of noted art collectors, writers, composers and artists. The city is home to hundreds of bookstores, public libraries and cultural associations (it is sometimes called "the city of books"), as well as the largest concentration of active theatres in Latin America. It has a world-famous zoo and botanical garden, a large number of landscaped parks and squares, as well as churches and places of worship of many denominations, many of which are architecturally noteworthy.


Tango music's birthplace is in Argentina. Its sensual dance moves were not seen as respectable until adopted by the Parisian high society in the 1920s, and then all over the world. In Buenos Aires, tango-dancing schools (known as academias) were usually men-only establishments in those times. On 30 September 2009, UNESCO's Intergovernmental Committee of Intangible Heritage declared tango part of the world's cultural heritage.

Buenos Aires is served by two airports: Ezeiza (EZE) for international flights and Jorge Newbery (AEP) (usually referred to as "Aeroparque") for domestic flights. EZE is a sleek, modern  airport facility located about 35 kilometers of 45 minutes from downtown. 
 
Ministro Pistarini Airport (EZE):
 Ministro Pistarini International Airport (airport code EZE) is located in Ezeiza just 22 kilometers from Buenos Aires, Argentina, and is the 11th busiest airport in South America. The airport has three terminals, A, B and the recently opened Terminal C, that host over 8 million travelers each year. Taxis, buses and rental cars are available. Although an overnight flight from most USA destinations (up to 11 hours), the 1- to 3-hour overall time difference means less jet lag involved for USA passengers. Also referred to as Ezeiza Airport, it has over 30 air carriers with many direct flights from Atlanta, Georgia, Auckland, New Zealand, Barcelona, Spain, and Capetown, South Africa.

Ground transportation

Go to the blue and white "Taxi Ezeiza" taxi booth standing by itself in the middle of the lobby. Pay the fee for your in-town destination. A worker will escort you out the door to a waiting taxi. Total cost should be about 500 pesos or USD 50  to the downtown central district plus a small tip for the person who helps you with your bags. (Note:  Tipping taxi drivers is not at all expected in Buenos Aires.  If you're paying a fare to the driver, simply round up to the nearest Peso.) Black and yellow cab charge about USD35. Make sure to agree on a price and that it is a radio cab before getting in.

There are other services to town, such as "remis', which is spanish for Limo, or a bus service offered by Manuel Tienda Leon. The bus will cost half of the taxi fare, but the bus fare is per peson and the taxi is per taxi...so if there are two of you the fee is about the same. The bus will drop you off in the downtown area near the Retiro neighborhood . ..from there you can catch a cab on to your final destination.
