Learn to Tango in Buenos Aires - Confiteria La Ideal


So you think you want to Tango? put on your dancing shoes and head to the Confiteria La Ideal. It's a historic building in the heart of downtown Buenos Aires and it's where Evita's dancing scenes were filmed.

My teacher at La Ideal, is Eduardo Saucedo (videos of him can be found in You Tube), a renown Tango Dancer in Argentina. Classes with him at La Ideal are held on Tuesdays from 3:30 to 6pm and on Wednesdays from 9 to 10:30pm. A live band and dancing will follow the classes so you can practice all the new steps you've learned.

There are Tango classes held at La Ideal every day, but these are with other teachers and I don't know their schedules. Check directly with La Ideal, which is located on Suipacha and Corrientes Avenue, an easy walk from our downtown layover hotel.

For more information on Eduardo Sancedo, go to his website at:

So you still want to Tango? If you go, send us some pictures and let us know what you think.

BUENOS AIRES - Hilton Pedicure


Best pedicure ever in Buenos Aires! at the Hilton Spa in the 7th floor of the Hilton Puerto Madero,downtown Buenos Aires ( it's next to their hair salon). Ask for Olga, she's the best. If not with her, Mary is excellent as well. It will be one hour of bliss for about 25 dollars. Bring your own color, since their selection is sometimes limited.


BUENOS AIRES - Double Decker City Tour


As of April 2009, a new "tourist bus" began to run in Buenos Aires. It's a yellow double-decker that runs every 30 minutes from 9am to 5:30pm with stops in the city's most popular areas (Boca, Recoleta, Palermo, etc).

The full tour lasts around 3 hours and with the purchase of your ticket, you get a tour guide and a brochure in one of 5 or 6 languages and you can get "on-and-off" the bus at any stop.

A one day pass is 25$ and a two day pass, 35$. Pay on the bus or purchase your tickets in advance, from city tourist offices.

For more information on the bus and it's route, visit this website (it has an English translation button) :


PS- there's a stop right across our downtown layover hotel. Just ask the concierge to point it out for you.

Enjoy the tour! and let me know if you liked it.
