We went to the Plaza Dorrego area for lunch one weekday. We watched a young couple perform the tango in the square. Folks, be polite, if you video their whole dance or take a bunch of photos then throw some pesos in their tip jar!...More

This is a must if you need to see a piece of old Argentina. They have 'free' tango dancers in the plaza, lots of cafe/bars with real character and it has a really nice vibe.

San Telmo
Characterized by cobblestones and narrow streets, San
Telmo is defined by the tango, the dance that made
Buenos Aires world-famous. Tango is a fusion of many
different cultures: a true child of immigration, much
like the city itself. Nowadays, it comes alive after

locals and visitors alike, who dance until the wee
