The capital of Argentina and one of the largest cities in Latin America. Often considered to be the cultural capital of South America, Buenos Aires offers much in the way of old architecture, museums, art and, of course, beautiful women. It is also the most-visited city in South America, and the second-most visited city in Latin America, behind Mexico City.
DATING IN BUENOS AIRES
Argentina has the reputation of being a particularly tough nut to crack when it comes to bedding the local women. Although they don’t take to the sack like Colombians or Brazilians, you certainly don’t need to go sexless in this city. The challenge of hooking-up with Argentine girls has to do with a few things. First of all, they don’t care about foreigners. Girls here would much rather date an Argentine dude than a Canadian or Australian chap. Second, if you’re white, you’ll have no exotic capital, and if you’re darker, you could be discriminated against because of it. Third, they’re fit and they know it, and the guys are good-looking, and won’t hesitate to muscle in on your gal. Finally, casual sex just isn’t as big a part of the culture as you’d probably like it to be.

All the rumours are true: the women are stunning. It gets tiresome trying to explain how gorgeous the girls are here; you need to come and see for yourself. Long, dark hair, beautiful eyes, perfect skin and immaculate faces. Their personalities can seem a bit cold and unwelcoming, but Argentine girls are pretty much impossible to hate for any reason.

NIGHTLIFE IN BUENOS AIRES
Like Sao Paulo and Mexico City, Buenos Aires earns a perfect ten in the nightlife department. This is a party city, by anyone’s standards. Ergo, there are bars and discos all over town. When you first arrive, just stick to Palermo so as not to get overwhelmed and frustrated trying to find any “hidden gems” that are “off the tourist track.” It would take at least a year of living here to be in the know in regards to any underground parties or secret hip bars that “aren’t out yet.” Sorry for all the quotation marks.
I recommend: Kika Club. Sometimes the obvious choice is the best choice. Kika’s is by far the most well-known bar to young tourists in Buenos Aires. On any given night it will be at least 20% gringo, if not more. If this sounds like a turnoff, you’re right. it is. However, it’s unfortunately also the best place to get your feet wet if you’re new to Buenos Aires.

SAFETY IN BUENOS AIRES
Safe compared to almost all other Latin American capitals. Petty crime and theft is what you should be most concerned about in Buenos Aires. Violent crime against tourists is rare.
One of the most livable cities in Latin America. If you are looking to settle down somewhere for a couple months, or even a year, give Buenos Aires some serious consideration. It has all the comforts and attractions of a European capital, but it is much cheaper and dare I say edgier than many European cities. Don’t, however, come here if sleeping with girls is your first priority. For that, you are much better off in Peru or Colombia. Buenos Aires would be a good place to come if you’re an artist looking for inspiration, a telecommuter of any kind or just a romantic who’s in love with cafe culture, old buildings and city dwelling.
