CRUISING: SOUTH SHETLAND ISLANDS

Over the next two days, explore the sub-Antarctic islands of the South Shetland chain and be marveled by the captivating landscapes that you will encounter along the way. Weather permitting, the projected landfalls and zodiac cruises include: King George Island where the majority of research stations are located; Deception Island, an extinct volcano with waters warm enough for a polar swim; and Half Moon Island with nesting Wilson’s storm petrels and chinstrap penguins. Other wildlife sighting here include elephant, Weddell, and leopard seals, and Adelie and Gentoo penguins. Please note: The itinerary and activities over the next few days depend on weather and ice conditions. All outings and landings rely on weather, sea, and ice conditions being favorable both for the ship to access the sites, as well as for the zodiacs and kayaks to maneuver under adequate conditions, ensuring the safety of all passengers and staff.

Meet Julia, a Local Host®

Born in Buenos Aires but having grown up under a very strong European influence, my father’s profession obliged the whole family to live in different countries. This provided me the opportunity to study foreign languages and at the same time be in touch with a wide variety of cultures, which has fostered my love of nature and especially people. This passion, together with a strong service vocation, made me embrace the tour guide profession, with which I’ve been involved since I was almost a teenager. I love the city where I was born, its wide avenues and parks, its cultural life, and every single corner where I can find even a simple story and share it with those that pass by throughout my daily life. From my point of view, Buenos Aires has everything, and everything here deserves to be seen and shared.

El Niño Bien

There are many tango shows for tourists in Buenos Aires, but this tango salon is where the locals go to strut their stuff. Have fun observing this graceful dance, but don’t be surprised if an instructor tries to coax you onto the floor. Note that this is not a Tango show, but a Milonga salon where local people go to dance and drink. Note: open from midnight and not all days of the week!

Museo Evita

You can stand before the Casada Rosada and see the balcony where Evita addressed her fans, and you can see the tomb where she was laid to rest in the beautiful Recoleta Cemetery. But to truly understand this controversial woman, visit the Museo Evita where her life story is told through her personal objects.

San Telmo Antiques Fair

Held every Sunday in Plaza Dorrego, this outdoor market is full of small antiques and crafts. Normally free live music and tango dancing complete the experience. The market does not take place when it’s raining.

Alvear Palace

Located in the exclusive Recoleta district of Buenos Aires, the Alvear Palace is one of the most luxurious hotels in South America. Step into the Lobby Bar to admire the elegant surroundings while you relax with a cocktail. Perhaps enjoy a selection from their extensive cognac and whiskey list.

Park Hyatt Buenos Aires Palacio Duhau

Located in the exclusive Recoleta district of Buenos Aires, this hotel opened its doors in 2006. The original building was the residence of the wealthy Duhau Family and was constructed with imported material from Europe. The combined old and new architecture is connected with magnificent terrace gardens. You may enter from Alvear Street or Posadas Street.

Cabaña Las Lilas

The average citizen in Argentina consumes 130 pounds of beef per year. If you want to fit in with everyone from local residents to government VIPs, head to this famous steakhouse dating back to 1905. Known worldwide, Cabaña Las Lilas serves the nation’s specialty like no one else. Every night, local and international leading figures of the 20th century flocked to La Cabana—the place to be seen—to enjoy its famous atmosphere and to sample some of the world’s finest beef. Now, it has relocated to Buenos Aires’ fashionable Recoleta area amid many boutiques, 5-star hotels, and beautiful gardens. The restaurant’s original interior has been lovingly recreated with Gaucho-style, large, open fireplaces and many original design details, including heavy-iron ornaments, leather, and burnished-copper utensils.

La Bourgogne

Taste Jean Paul Bondoux’s haute cuisine in Buenos Aires! La Bourgogne is a kind of gastronomic mecca for gourmets. It offers light meals of fish and beef during the day and the symphony of his creations in French regional specialties during the evenings. There is also the famous boutique of delicatessen products, including top cheeses, on the premises. It is open from Monday to Saturday, mid-day and evenings.

Gran Café Tortoni

Whether you make it to a performance at the majestic Teatro Colón or not, you’ll want to visit its equally famous Gran Café Tortoni. Sink into one of the red leather chairs, order the sidra, its signature alcoholic cider, and enjoy the 19th-century décor like Albert Einstein and Josephine Baker once did.

Belgrano

If you’re looking for a Buenos Aires neighborhood off the beaten path, look no further than the Chinatown located here. Considering most locals don’t even know it exists, you won’t bump into any tourists while exploring its shops and restaurants.

Calle Florida

Shopping in the “Paris of the South” is a delight, and you won’t be disappointed with the shops and boutiques here. Exquisite leather shops line Calle Florida, and many will custom-make something for you during your visit.

Calle Báez (Las Cañitas—Belgrano District)

Buenos Aires is known for its nightlife and whether you want dinner, drinks, dancing, or all three, you’ll find plenty of hot spots on this street.

Palacio Barolo

This odd-looking building, once the tallest in South America, has just recently been opened to the public. It offers sweeping views of the city from its unusual tower.

Palermo Soho & Palermo Hollywood

Don’t miss the trendy neighborhoods with excellent designer shops, cafés, and restaurants. They are recommended during the day and evening!
