Hello !

I will be in Buenos Aires for Christmas and New Year. Could anyone recommend any parties for New Year and places to visit during Christmas? Do you think Iguazu is a good place to spend Christmas? I am also thinking to go to Mar de Plata and may be Uruguay. Any advice/suggestions?
Many thanks!!

Hi Monica,
I too am in BsAs for Christmas and NY...the good news is that most cafes and restaurants are open on Christmas Day. Puerto Madero is apparently a nice place to be but is expensive.

If you have any luck finding extra info please let me know.

ok, we´ll start to plan something ;)
We have to party... actually I´m like a newcomer here, even I´m an argentinean because I´m far from home too.
Here, is traditional a dinner with the family and after go parting but allway after 2.00, yes many resto, pub are open but for a dinner you have to make a reservation always is better at your hostel...
and after go out... Now I don´t have exactly what will be the best to do... but I´m looking for it...

I am from Argentina. Here most people either gather at their place with their family, or go out to a restaurant till 12:00 (latter is generally used by smaller families).
Although most people do go partying after 2 am, i strongly recommend going a bit earlier as you'll avoid the crowds, which can be a nasty on such date.

Buenos Aires has a zillion parties, so u pretty much have to make your pick. Every siongle Bar/Pub/Club has its own.

Its not a bad idea to grab some friends and make reservations for dinner at a nightclub. It wont be very cheap, but the food is surprinsingly good in most nightclubs, and you kinda guaranteed a decent night that way.

There is this free party at "the planetario" (any cab will take u there). If u like Electronic music should be ok.

Remember its virtually IMPOSSIBLE to get a cab between 12:00 and 2:30 am. So either plan accordingly, or book a cab/remis in advance.

Hope this helps. If u wannna know about anything else just ask away.

Hey there!

I'll also be in BsAs during NewYears (Christmas is already over now :)).
And if anyone wants to meet up for a party - let me know.

If anyone will also still be here for a while (I'll be here until February) let me know, too. I'd like to meet people during my stay here..

have fun everyone!
