Live it up or cool it down in this hip-shakin' town.

More European than South American in flavor, Buenos Aires' heart boasts bustling streets, grand avenues, old-time cafes and stylish restaurants. It's a city of tragedy and elation; a vibrant, cosmopolitan capital where locals are renowned for their flair and cockiness, even in times of adversity.

For the traveler, Buenos Aires delivers. Wander the cobbled streets, marveling at faded architectural glories and colorfully painted metal houses; talk world politics and fútbol (soccer) in an atmospheric old cafe; then tuck into a famously delicious Argentine steak to power a long night's partying.

Weather

The climate in BA varies from pleasant to oppressive. Late spring (October and November) and autumn (March to May) bring hospitable weather with temperatures averaging 24°C (75°F) during the day. In summer, the mercury has been known to hit a scorching 40°C (104°F) - a good time to head for the coastal resorts. Rainfall is to be expected throughout the year, but it's far from torrential.

Spring and fall are tourist low seasons in BA and are the best times to visit. Hot summer nights, however, make for a wonderful experience. There are year-round festivals celebrating everything from fashion to dance to wine, though springtime sees the lion's share of these events. If you're here during winter, nights can drop to bone-chilling cold, so bring a warm jacket.

A Top Day in Buenos Aires

Like most other porteños (residents of Buenos Aires) I get up very late on Sunday morning - staying up until 05.00 on weekends is typical in this city-that-never-sleeps. A slow start at the local cafe is the order of the day, so I score a sunny sidewalk table and order a cafe cortado (coffee with milk) and some medialunas (croissants). Now energized, I grab my bike (I'm feeling suicidal enough to fight speeding taxis and buses today) and pedal to San Telmo. The crazy-popular antiques fair is happening, as it does every Sunday, and I dodge buskers, craft stalls and distracted tourists. I may as well enjoy my wheels, so I veer east to the Reserva Ecológical Costanera Sur and lay tracks down the dirt paths while checking out the Río de la Plata - the 'widest river in the world' (it's actually a delta). Filling my lungs with fresh air, I now point my bike northwards to Recoleta, stopping by the Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes for a glimpse of some of my favourite Impressionist paintings.

The nearby Cemeterio de la Recoleta also beckons, and I follow the crowds to Evita's sarcophagus for more artsy shots. I wind my way past the crafts market outside, buy a home-made snack from a local vendor, and hop on my bike once more to cycle towards Palermo's parks, where a ring road is closed off to motor vehicles. It's stuffed full of everyone else, though, and I so I join the in-line skaters, four-passenger pedal bikes and joggers for an easy spin around the boat-filled lake. This is the place in BA to check out a plethora of designer clothing boutiques, novelty gift stores and fun houseware shops. Then it's time for a pre-dinner drink, so I change into my sexiest outfit and join my friends at ultra-chic Casa Cruz.
