Discussion on Buenos Aires

John :

I'm coming to Buenos Aires next week. I know it's a winter time in there, so how do people dress at this time of year in Buenos Aires? Does anyone wear short-sleevs (isn't it too cold) during the daytime, should I bring my shorts too, or should I bring more warm clothes instead?

carmen m :
"Buenos Aires, right now is winter, probably ending winter, but still winter, you have to have winter clothing, and forget about shorts,short sleevs, etc etc I was there and it was cold, so bring winter clothes, you may buy there, are nice and not so spensive for the quality... leather articles are nice..."
Melkiha :
"Stick to warm clothes!"
Colombianito86 :
"you better bring warm clothes instead...winter is winter, you dont want to die over Buenos Aires...Good luck in Buenos Aires and i hope you like it Colombia is passion"
intergirl :
"You'll have an amazing time there! You can buy lots of winter clothes there. Might have some sales (rebajas) on as winter is ending. Calle Florida (Florida street) good for clothes. Warm clothes aplenty."

Just wondering, is Buenos Aires a safe wealthy city? I was watching some show about gangs in South American countries and I can't remember what was said about Buenos Aires if anything. Is it one of those cities where if you're a foreigner you kind of have to watch out? Or is it a pretty safe place? Whats the economy like also? I've been out plenty, thank you kindly. I was in Jamaica a month ago and anyone we asked about Kingston they just said to stay away that it's not safe.

layla D :
"I went there last summer with some friends... so fun.. we didn't run into that kind of trouble :)"
northmiamibeach1975 :
"Gangs in south American countries? Oh, boy...you need to get out a little. Buenos Aires is like any other major city in the world, like Ny or London. It's safe, modern , beautiful and cosmopolitan. But, like in any other city, you should watch out where are you going. Simple as that."
Sunshine :
"I'm from Buenos Aires and I can tell you that every day there are more and more foreingners here. I've been in NY and I think it's preety mucha safe like it. I mean, you should watch your purse, and try not to go alone at night. Try not to show off if you 're carring cameras or jewlery, and do not walk alone after midnight. Still, you can walk safely almost anywere and enjoy your trip. The economy... well, right now 1 dollar equals 3,18 pesos. So, imagine that a bus ticket will cost you like 25 cents, a Coke in a kiosk is about 50 cents, a beer in a bar arround 2,5 dollars, a lunch for two could be 12 dollars and a dinner for two with wine in a fancy restaurant could cost you 30 - 35 dollars. I hope you enjoy Buenos Aires!"
Charles R :
"I live in Buenos Aires right now, and I'm from America. It is a beautiful city, but like every - including in the states - the are parts of the city you should avoid. Most of the crime you hear about perpetrated on tourists is overblown horror stories, but you still have to be a bit cautious. The economy down here has been having some trouble, which means that the exchange rate is pretty favorable to very favorable for people coming from places with the US dollar, the Pound or the Euro. I personally have had absolutely no issue with crime or anything, but I'm a guy and it can sometimes be easier for guys. I live with girls, however and besides not wanting to go certain places alone or at night, they dont seem afraid at all. I recommend you come on down."
sea link2 :
"Dude, I live in Miami, and after what's going on down here Buenos Aires looks like Disney World. Now the cops, down here in Miami, can have assault rifles, and shoot people after only on warning, great place Miami! Buenos Aires is an almost 500 year old city, with things of the 22nd century, you feel like you are in London,or Paris or anywhere in Europe, take my word for it, you'll find more Americans down there than in Miami. Culture is everywhere, as well as art shows, movie theaters, you name, just GO and see by yourself, amazing city! I would call it the San Francisco of the 21st century."
el toro :
"buenos aires is sort like new york, you the safe, the not so safe places . there are very afluent places, and also, sort like the projects. overall, go there, and you will find many tourists."
JOSEPH F :

Can a single guy have a good time in Buenos Aires??

Emporio_man :
"Yep, with some extra help! Wink!"
Gmo D :
"The best. The possibilities here are endless. . . .but let me tell you Argentine women really despise overweight people. That would be a major barrier against having a good time. "
SEG48 :
"of course sweetheart"
Mary :
"Oh yes! I was there a few weeks ago, and there were women everywhere! But... make sure that you keep very clean and groomed, and that you dress well. It's important to take a shower at least once a day. Looks and cleanliness are valued there."
Verito :
"Sure! There is a wide variety of night life! Pubs, tango shows, discos... And some people say Argentinian girls are the prettiest!"

El Club de Osos de Buenos Aires nació un domingo de 1997 durante una reunión de 30 hombres en un departamento de 40 metros cuadrados de la Avenida Santa Fe. En semanas, gracias al boca a boca, los Osos ya eran 45. Pronto se fueron al Tigre “en un viaje inolvidable”, según testimonios propios, y desde entonces no han dejado de crecer.

The Spice Girls are cutting short their reunion world tour, blaming "family and personal commitments". The UK band said they would end their tour in Toronto on 26 February, with planned shows in Beijing, Sydney, Cape Town and Buenos Aires being axed.
