Day 1 UK / Buenos Aires
Elegant, old-worldly, with a touch of Paris here and of London there, a dash of New York cosmopolitanism and Italian exuberance here, the city nevertheless has a lot of Latin America in it as well and some things that are uniquely Argentine, such as its tango bars and overflowing kiosks. Here, everything is grand, on a scale fit for kings: tourists photograph their steaks at the restaurants, Av. 9 de Julio ranks as the world's widest avenue, a cemetery so fancy that it occupies one of the poshest bits of downtown, the entire city fronts on the world's widest river. Buenos Aires never fails to impress. This afternoon, embark on a brief walking tour of the local surroundings and points of interest near your hotel.

This side of park was created in 1934 and covers some 50,000 hectares, offering unique "contact with nature", since is it is possible to get within a few steps from the thundering cascades. You will feel the proximity of the falls and observe the beauty of its vegetation, birds and butterflies, walking along the footbridges and roads; waterproof clothing is necessary, since there is a small price to pay for getting within such close range of the falls!
