Monserrat Aires
Buenos Aires is the financial, industrial, commercial, and cultural hub of Argentina.The world's ninth-largest city rises from the Río de la Plata and stretches more than 200 square km .Approximately 3.5 million people live in the City of Buenos Aires. It is beautiful architecturally, and very cultural.With extensive suburbs, and boasting a modern bustling center adorned with numerous elegant older buildings, this cosmopolitan city surprises many travelers expecting what they think of as a more 'Latin American' experience.

The lively heart of the city, known as El Microcentro, holds many 19th century buildings, and strolling in their shadows amongst the bustling, stylish portenos may remind you of some older European city far away on the other side of the world.Buenos Aires constantly receives tourists from all over the world and offers a large choice cultural events, nightlife, restaurants and pubs.Buenos Aires is served by Ezeiza International Airport and Aeroparque Jorge Newbery.The City is an important destination for the maritime and fluvial cruisers industry of South America.With the economic boom predicted to continue for 2006, travelers might be advised to visit before inflation makes Argentina no longer the eye-popping bargain it has been since 2002.
