The Basics

Passengers docking at the Buenos Aires cruise port will find plenty to explore in “the Paris of South America,” including world-class museums, leafy parks, tango shows, shops, and a fascinating cemetery. To optimize your time, choose a city sightseeing tour that stops by the Argentine capital’s top attractions, such as the Recoleta Cemetery, Plaza de Mayo, Dorrego Square, and the colorful streets of La Boca.

Alternatively, head into the countryside to experience gaucho culture firsthand. Nature lovers might take a catamaran cruise through the lush Tigre Delta, while foodies should consider an evening tango and dinner show.
