Located in Central Argentina, and is the third largest city in the country. It is known for its neoclassical architecture, and for being the country’s most liberal and socialist city. It is also the birthplace of renowned artist Guillermo Forchino. There is an abundance of bars and hostels in the city, and the women are pretty (of course they are, it’s Argentina!)
DATING IN ROSARIO
You have a slightly better chance of getting some here than you do in Cordoba and, like in Cordoba, women appear to outnumber men here. Girls in bars here appear to be very young, and mostly arrive and stick with a group for the duration of the evening. This makes trying to meet anyone daunting. Gringos aren’t looked upon with any sort of novelty here, and going out with a group of them, especially if they don’t speak Spanish, will only hurt your chances. I’d suggest going one with 1-2 other guys max, with at least one member of the group having basic Spanish. Girls here can seem cold if you do unnatural approaches, so save the pick-up lines for another city.

WOMEN IN ROSARIO
Pretty darn good, lads! But Argentina sets a high standard. You certainly won’t be disappointed here, but it’s not the best city in Argentina.
Rosario women are not as good as Cordoba women. And Cordoba is just straight-up a better looking city, too.
I guess what I’m trying to say is go to Cordoba instead if you’re on a tight timeline. But if you got some time, cruise by Rosario as well.

IS ROSARIO SAFE?
Rosario is considered to be one of Argentina’s more dangerous cities. That said, violent crime is pretty rare, but be conscious of bag and purse-snatchers and pickpockets. The city also seems to have a bit of a drug problem…like a junkies on sidewalks and under bridges sort of thing. Like you might see back home! However, users generally won’t trouble you. Its reputation is worse than the reality…but keep your guard somewhat up nonetheless.

$400.00 is doable.
NIGHTLIFE IN ROSARIO
While not quite as manic as Buenos Aires, Rosario offers more than it’s fair share of party. Most of it lies in Centro, between Parque de la Independencia and the Rio Parana. Nightlife here gets started very late in the evening – around 2:00 am – so don’t bother going out much earlier than that unless you feel like going to a chill bar.
I recommend: Try Kubrick Bar. It’s usually gets a decent crowd of young people, and the atmosphere is unpretentious.
