Buenos Aires – Enjoy a Welcome Dinner in Enchanting Buenos Aires
The prestige of Buenos Aires shapes the reputation of Argentina with images of all-night tango clubs, cafes brimming with artists, writers, stunning architecture reflecting vibrant baroque designs, and elegant cuisine favoring steak, ice cream, and wine. Your flight arrives at Ministro Pistraini International Airport, where your private transfer greets you. The people move through the streets with an endless bustle. The outdoor shopping street of Calle Florida was pedestrianized in the 1970s leading between Peru Street and Avenida de Mayo. Men and women in business attire walk from the nearby financial district and singers let their voices echo against the towering buildings lining the walkway.
Your hotel is located in the grandeur of the Recoleta neighborhood, one of the most famous of the 47 barrios creating the distinct ambiance of the city. Grand mansions border the wide boulevards shaded by lush trees. Boutique shops provide bright light and insight into the elegant fashion of the day. Dinner provides a perfect introduction into the delicious flavors of Argentina symbolizing the country’s greater culture. The aroma of buttery pastry dough from empanadas fades beneath the scent of chimichurri sauce topping steak cooked to order. The meal ends with a demonstration on how to properly prepare the celebrated Argentine drink of mate. Loose-leaf tea is served in a strainer with hot but not boiling water, where the leaves can steep for up to five minutes. The herbaceous scent cleans the palate with a soothing, earthy touch.
