THE CITY

Buenos Aires, the capital of Argentina, is a dynamic, multicultural city set on the southwest coast of the Río de la Plata; so wide that many travelers usually mistake it for the ocean. Buenos Aires has a mild climate and it will be early spring at the time of the congress. The green and wet natural landscape can be enjoyed either within the city and its surroundings in the many parks, or in the very large Ecological Reserve located five minutes away from downtown. However, many tourists visit Buenos Aires for other attractions. The city – with three million inhabitants – has 48 neighborhoods to visit. In each one there are bars, public squares, football and other sport stadiums, temples, milongas (organized events where people dance tango) and theatres, but the areas most visited by national and foreign tourists are Abasto, Puerto Madero, San Telmo, Recoleta, Palermo, La Boca, and Corrientes avenue in the heart of the city.

Buenos Aires is one of the main cultural centers of the American continent. The city is considered fourth in the world theatre scene, having more theatres than New York City. Buenos Aires’ traditional and modern museums are famous. Tango music and dance can be found at the most sophisticated tango houses or the most popular neighborhood milongas.

With more than 3,000 restaurants, eating in Buenos Aires is only a question about choosing where and what to have for lunch and dinner; from the typical dishes such as asado (barbecue) or pizza, to others, the result of centuries of European immigration. Football is a passion for Argentines and many fans plan their trips so they will coincide with the national classic match between Boca Juniors and River Plate. Another characteristic that attracts locals and visitors is shopping, with fairs, open-sky commercial circuits and malls. The independent scene – alternative theatre performances and movies but also musicians and designers – is also a setting for international meetings and festivals. In Buenos Aires there are fairs and cultural events all year round. To get around the city, there are multiple transportation choices: six subway lines, more than 100 “colectivos” (as buses are called in Buenos Aires) lines, and railways. Taxis and “remises” are a very common means of transport, because they are safe and affordable as compared to other cities.

Travelers can take a walk around the city on their own, or with specialized guides; they can enjoy Buenos Aires over months or they can discover its most important places and amenities in a few days. Visitors usually go home with a strong desire of coming back.

Weather

Buenos Aires is blessed with a temperate and sunny climate, making it a great destination at any time of the year. The convention will take place during the spring season, which could surprise you with some rainy days. You may want to bring an umbrella.

In November, temperatures range between maximum 25°C (78°F) during the day and minimum 16°C (60°F) during the night.
