Whether you're a returned missionary going back to visit your mission or a parent going to pick up your missionary, a trip to Buenos Aires will take your breath away. As the nation's Capital city, the industry, culture and beauty of Argentina all meet in Buenos Aires. This metropolis of 11 million is one of the most modern and cosmopolitan cities in the world, yet its rich colonial past is apparent everywhere you look. In fact, this beautiful paradox has earned Buenos Aires the nickname "Paris of the South."
In addition to the old world appearance of the city, you'll find many things that are distinctly Latin: Warm, friendly people, a beautiful Spanish dialect, and amazingly low prices for foreigners who can take advantage of the favorable exchange rates. And since most vacationers don't think of South America when they think of fashionable metropolitan areas, you'll find a less touristy atmosphere and more of what you want to see: The beauty and culture of Buenos Aires.
