Valentines Day in Buenos Aires

(Photo by Alex E. Proimos)

Buenos Aires is a romantic city and with Valentines Day coming up, it’s the perfect time to woo porteño style. Below are our top picks for courting and celebrating love.

Tango is of course as romantic as it gets and Buenos Aires is the place in the world for it. Options include getting up close and personal at a private tango lesson or watching the colorful dancers inspire with their passion.

A stroll through the famous Tres de Febrero Parks is a leisurely way to valentine it up in the city. The Rosedal is, as its name suggests, full of roses and offers the chance to paddle boat around the small pond and read poetry under the andalusian patio.  The nearby Planetarium is perfect for some stargazing later on.

An off the beaten path alternative is to head to the stunning delta in Tigre. There, book a romantic boat ride or pamper yourselves at the Delta Eco Spa.

If what you want is a traditional wine-and-dine experience then the Valentines Day Tasting Menu at Hernán Gipponi Restaurant is not to be missed, plus, since it’s in Fierro Hotel, you can spend the night!

Touring some of the city’s most romantic landmarks is also a way to celebrate the glories and perils of love. The Kavanagh building, the Recoleta Cemetery and the Casa del Historiador all have romantic stories to tell.
