Buenos Aires Tango

Tango is Buenos Aires’ gift to the world. It’s sensual, seductive, captivating and definitely not to be missed.

Why should I take in some tango when in Buenos Aires?

Tango is the most important cultural contribution that Buenos Aires has given to the world. This distinctive form of music and dance is seductive, captivating and, simply put, great entertainment – it should not be missed when you are visiting the city where tango was born and is done best.

Our top tango recommendation while in Buenos Aires is to head to an authentic tango milonga, rather than considering the more touristy tango dinner-show performances.

Without a doubt, Buenos Aires is the best city in the world to experience Tango, in it’s birthplace, whether you want to listen to it, watch it being danced, or dance it yourself.
