Hello, Buenos Aires.
Buenos Aires is renowned for its unique mixture of European and North American influences while being true to it's South American heritage. The city is laced with shopping streets, and restaurants of different cuisines can be easily found in BA.
Expect a vibrant nightlife where restaurants open at 9am and bars/clubs are opened til dawn. This is a city that never sleeps!
A trip to Buenos Aires is not complete without some sort of experience of the Tango, the national dance of Argentina. La Boca is famous for Tango and you can often catch glimpses of Tango dancers practicing in the streets.
Women digital nomads will find that Argentina is a relatively safe country to travel alone. Argentina’s men have a reputation for freely expressing their appreciation for women passing by on the street, but it is much more likely that a single female traveler will suffer minor harassment in public places — or petty theft— than an outright sexual assault.
Be especially careful at night, and stay away from squares. The most frequent incidents of crime involve distraction theft, bag and cellphone snatching.
Buenos Aires is a hot-spot for expats and one of the most popular meeting points in the region for location-independent entrepreneurs from all around the world.
You’ll find many digital nomads here, especially between the months of October and April. The city has great internet connectivity, and has over 250 free WiFi hot-spots in the city, including on Subte and Metrobus networks.
Buenos Aires is broken up into 40 neighborhoods, or barrios, although realistically you would only consider living in the 16 that are closest to the city centre.
The three most popular choices are Palermo, San Telmo and Recoleta as these are centrally based, but are safer and more stylish than Boca.
The best time to visit Buenos Aires is from April-June (fall) or from September-December (spring). January and February is Buenos Aires' summertime and peak tourist season, and crowds as well as hotel room rates start to swell.
While this season remains a popular time to visit, temperatures often rise into the 90s and a muggy heat hangs in the air.
