Day 1 - 5:4 night Buenos Aires & Iguassu Falls Package

Day 1: 26 January, 2021


You will be met at the airport and transferred to your Buenos Aires hotel, The Madero. Enjoy two nights here, including Buffet Breakfast daily.


Day 2: 27 January, 2021


Dinner and Tango Show at La Ventana. Private Services with English Guide - Departs: 19.30 to 20.00hs.

Depart from the hotel to San Telmo, called "the Tango District". The tango is the music of Buenos Aires par excellence. Its origins date back to 1880.

The tango emerged as a mixture of Cuban and Spanish rhythms, some polka and, according to some, also a little African music. Its lyrics, difficult to

understand and impossible to translate, are deeply poetic. Each one of them has something to tell about the city, about its history and its people.

Despite its humble origins, in the 1920's tango left the brothels and the underworld to reach the salons of the upper classes. Tango finally became a

finished cultural expression, a set of myths, values, traditions and aspirations.

"La Ventana" is a pleasant atmosphere where the visitor can enjoy some delicious dishes of the local food -especially a good “bife de chorizo”, accompanied by

an excellent wine- and then enjoy the passion, the fire and the charm of the tango. In the style of the great orchestras of the 1940s, the place invites you to take

part in a luxury tour of the music of Buenos Aires par excellence. Around midnight,return to the hotel.

from which visitors can choose to take the train that goes to “Falls Station” or the one that goes to “Devil’s Throat Station”. From these points it is possible to carry out diverse excursions:

The superior walk is a walk of 800 meters on footbridges, elevated over the surface of the terrain so as not to obstruct or/frighten the fauna. On this walk, visitors can observe the waterfalls

from the upper part of the Dos Hermanas, Bosetti, Bernabé Méndez, M´Bigua Falls, among others. It lasts for an hour and the range of difficulty is low, there are no stairs.

Walk into the storehouse, a cellar built with stone masonry by French architects that has been declared a National Monument.
