Buenos Aires, city of all passions

Buenos Aires, the city of all passions

We are Porteños, the people of the port.

We have immigrant blood. We are passionate. We are fond of our families. We give big embraces. We always greet with a kiss. Our tables are always crowded with friends, uncles and aunts, cousins, children, brothers and sisters. We love table talk. We argue heatedly. We express our emotions with enviable ease. We are made of contrasts: between popular culture and sophisticated culture, between the traditional and the modern, between long-established religions and modern idols.

Our city is full of life and intensity, enriched with stories that are shared and entwined. Here, we bump into each other in the street; we sit for hours over a coffee.  Here, we look each other in the eye.Here, the night is a new day. The city lights up with its hundreds of theaters and thousands of restaurants and bars. The night wakes you up.

Here, we don’t speak Spanish; we speak Porteño, something you won’t find anywhere else. Here, a football match is a spectacle you should experience at least once in your life. Here, the taxi drivers are poets and philosophers.

Here, we'll introduce you to tango and dulce de leche; we want to meet you, and get to know you. Because here we don’t host tourists; we make friends. You may find us a little noisy, but, above all, you’ll find us authentic.

Here, in Buenos Aires, you can be sure about one thing: you'll feel part of the city. And when you depart, you’ll leave your mark and take something of us with you.

Because we are Buenos Aires, the city of all passions.
