Watch 📺

Arguably one of the most renowned films set in Argentina, "Evita," starring Madonna as Eva Perón, chronicles Perón's rise to fame, power, and ultimately her role as Argentina’s First Lady.

Another award-winning film, "El Secreto de Sus Ojos" (The Secret in Their Eyes), blends romance and thriller elements. It follows a retired judiciary employee writing a novel in hopes of finding closure on an unsolved case and unrequited love.

Read 📖

"In Patagonia" by Bruce Chatwin is a timeless travelogue that delves into the shared region of Patagonia, belonging to both Argentina and Chile. Chatwin's vivid descriptions and interactions with locals paint a rich portrait of the region's landscapes, wildlife, and cultural heritage.

Dive into "Labyrinths”, a collection of short stories penned by Jorge Luis Borges, a celebrated writer born in Buenos Aires. Borges is widely regarded as one of the most significant literary figures of the 20th century.

Taste 😋

Alfajores, a traditional sweet found throughout Latin America, are particularly renowned in Argentina. These treats consist of two round biscuits sandwiched together with decadent dulce de leche (a caramel sauce), sometimes dusted with powdered sugar or even coated in chocolate, depending on the recipe and location.

During your time in Argentina, you'll often spot locals holding handle-less mugs filled to the brim with mate, a bitter drink made from dried yerba mate leaves steeped in hot water. While it may not suit everyone's taste, it's a beloved staple for locals, and it's worth trying at least once during your visit.

Argentina boasts world-class wines, with malbec being a standout variety. Be sure to sample a glass or two and consider visiting Mendoza for vineyard and winery tours to fully appreciate Argentina's wine culture.

Listen 🎶

The tango! As the very soul of Tango in Argentina, Buenos Aires is the perfect spot to explore your curiosity for this captivating and jovial activity. There are tango schools, tango dance halls, tango-themed hotels, restaurants, and cafes everywhere - all of which are made to ensure that you have the best tango experience possible.

Say 🗣️

Che boludo!’ - This is a phrase commonly heard in Argentina and typically translates to "What's up man?" However, be cautious with the term "boludo," as it can be both a term of endearment and an insult depending on the context!

‘Buena onda’ - Literally meaning "good wave," this phrase translates to "good vibes" in English. It can be used to describe a person, a place, or an atmosphere.

‘Picadito’ - Football is a way of life in Argentina, and you can't fully experience the Argentine culture without attending or at least watching a "picadito" (football match) with the locals.
