Is this trip right for you?

  • This Short Break Adventure is a ‘join in’ group departure, which means you are not accompanied by an Intrepid group leader – our local representative fills this role – and the configuration of any fellow travellers in the group might change during the trip.

  • This trip will run with a minimum of one person, so you may be joined by other travellers booked on the same date as you, or you may be on your own.

  • This trip is operated by one of our local partners in Argentina and therefore you may be joined by a mixture of Intrepid-booked passengers and other travellers during activities.

  • Information may be delivered in English and Spanish, or just English depending on the requirements of the group.


Bienvenido! Welcome to Buenos Aires, Argentina’s lively capital city. You’ll be met at the airport and transferred to your hotel on arrival. With no activities planned for today, you are free to arrive at your accommodation at any time. With an intoxicating mix of Latin soul and European influences, beautiful Buenos Aires is a delight to explore. If you arrive with time to spare, why not head out to see the street murals of San Telmo, or visit Casa Rosada, the office of the president of Argentina. This evening, you may like to take part in an iconic Buenos Aires experience and watch a live tango show. One of the best spots in the city is Cafe Tortoni, an intimate venue that’s been open since 1858. Sit back with a Malbec, perhaps grab some dinner, and watch a passionate performance. Pre-booking is recommended and can be done directly on their website.
