10 Things to do Outdoors in Buenos Aires

The sun is shinning, and Buenos Aires is alive with people ready to play outside. Looking for a fun activity outdoors? The city is full of options to get you out and off the couch!

1. Bosques de Palermo
Pack a picnic to enjoy in the beautiful rose garden, and rent a paddle boat to float around the pond.

2. Reserva Ecológica
Put on your running shoes and get some exercise! Enjoy the greenery with a great city view.

3. Jardín Japonés
Stroll around bonsai trees and greenhouses full of Japanese flowers complemented by Argentine floss silk trees.

4. Jardín Zoológico
Take a walk around and enjoy the many species of animals, as well as peacocks roaming around freely.

5. The Campo Argentino del Polo
Buy tickets to enjoy an exciting polo match on these lovely grounds. If you get inspired you can even sign up for lessons. Interested in both? Include a 2 week course in Spanish at LVstudio and enjoy a match and a lesson in polo.

6. La Bicicleta Narajna
Take a scenic 3 or 4 hour bike tour throughout the area of your choice. http://www.labicicletanaranja.com.ar/

7. Feria de Mataderos
Walk around street vendors among gauchos (cowboys) and watch the folk dancers in the street. Unlike many street fairs throughout Buenos Aires, this has the most authentic feel.

8. Plaza de los Dos Congresos
A large square across the National Congress building. Sight see and people watch around the large bronze reproduction of The Thinker, and of course eat an ice cream!

9. Puerto Modero
Walk up and down along the water, and across the stunning Puente de la Mujer. Sit outside at one of the many restaurants and cafes with patio seating by the water.

10. Get out of the city!
If you really want to enjoy the sun, take a day trip to Tigre and enjoy life by the delta. Or take a tour to an authentic Argentine Estancia, or Ranch. Learning Spanish? Sign up for a 2 week Super Intensive course at LVstudio with an excursion trip out of Buenos Aires.
