Stroll through the parks and cultural centers

On Sunday, it's still in Puerto Madero you love to stroll and sunbathe at Parque Micaela Bastidas-. It is accessible via the Avenue Rosario Vera Peñaloza-which is a continuation of the street from the United States. The park covers five hectares is named after the wife of Jose Gabriel Condorcanqui, the descendant of the last Inca king Tupac Amaru. The onlooker will discover a mixture of lawns organized so unusual, roses and metal furniture. The Porteños love to spend the afternoon in the park close to the docks sipping mate.

"The idea was to give the place a tone alternative to what is done conventionally in the field of culture, hence the name Parakultural culture in reference to" para "," says the owner.

The walker will enjoy celebrating the lightness of life on a terrace of Palermo and stroll through the many parks of the city. Buenos Aires combines excitement and sweetness of life. Bewitched by the rich culture and atmosphere of the city back, it feels the time to stay as a latin South America. The Porteños, living in a city of twelve million people are often friendly, relaxed and spontaneous with the visitor. Leaving the Buenos Aires on the other side of the world, we may hope to return as soon as possible. As if we had found a second home ...
