Asados and Tango!

What is Asado?

Asado is much more than a meal. In Argentina it is a culinary cultural event, and could even be considered an epitome of Argentine culture. Argentina is known across the globe for the quality of its beef, and an asado is where you’ll find that beef, grilling slowly to juicy perfection.

For centuries, Argentina has been one of the world’s leading producers of quality beef. In the old days, Argentine cowboys, known as gauchos, took care of vast herds of cattle on the pampas, or grasslands. These gauchos ate beef for every meal, cooking it over an open fire. Today, their descendents have opened parillas, or grilling houses. We have included a day in the countryside of Argentina to experience this traditional BBQ.

Tango:

Tango developed around 1850 and 1880 on both shores of Rio de La Plata. In the city of Buenos Aires, specifically in a neighborhood called Monserrat, crowds would gather at night for the practice of dances such as Tango, Candombe and Fandango, all of which had a bad reputation among the higher classes ruling Argentinean society at the time.

Regardless of its poor origins Tango, in time, developed into a national habit and for many decades was the favorite pastime of just about anybody living in Buenos Aires.

Detailed Itinerary

Places Visited 

Buenos Aires (official name Autonomous City of Buenos Aires, also called Capital Federal ) is the capital of the Argentine Republic. The name means fair winds in Spanish.

It is one of the largest cities in Latin America, with a lot of cultural offerings, and is the point of departure for travelling to the rest of the country. Inhabitants of Buenos Aires are called porteños, "people from the port".

Buenos Aires is a singular, open and integrating destination that allows the visitor not only to view the city but the opportunity to have an exceptional urban adventure.
Scratch beneath the surface and you’ll find a wealth of old-world cafés, colonial architecture, outdoor markets and diverse communities, plus loads to intrigue and entertain. Rub shoulders with Recoleta’s rich and famous while you visit its fascinating necropolis. Hunt for that antique gem in a dusty San Telmo shop, or visit the barrio’s spectacularly popular weekend fair.

Palermo Viejo, once a run-down neighborhood of warehouses, factories, and tiny decaying stucco homes few cared to live in as recently as 15 years ago, has been transformed into the city's chicest destination.
