Tango Argentina Evening

  • Approximate Cost: $129 USD per person
  • Approximate Time: 5 hours
  • Location: Buenos Aires, Argentina
  • When: Includes Dinner & Show

Argentina is the birthplace of tango, and a visit to Buenos Aires without seeing an authentic tango show would be unforgivable. The rich sounds and warm atmosphere will charm you as you enjoy an included meal and one of the most popular tango shows in Buenos Aires.

The tango and dinner show takes place in one of the most traditional clubs of Buenos Aires: El Viejo Almacen (“the old general good store”). In contrast to other more touristy tango-houses, here you’ll see the tango being danced in its purest form. International tango in ballroom tango generally steers towards a more showy and overstated style, going for the effect and not the form. The style of tango you’ll see here is how porteños (“port people”) dance the tango — the way the Argentine experts are dancing it today.

For a close-up view of spectacular Iguassu Falls during your South America adventure, join this special excursion that begins with an open trolley ride through the dense rainforest near the falls, during which you can observe flowers, birds, and butterflies. As you ride through the undergrowth, your jungle guides point out orchids, palm trees, bromeliads, and centenarian trees. Arriving at a stopping point, you’ll make your way down to the water’s edge. At the dock, we’ll board special speed boats make our way into the gorge, where falls thunder in from three sides. First, take the opportunity to snap some photos worthy of National Geographic magazine. Then, get ready to get wet!  Your experienced river pilots, who know these waters intimately, will give you a thrilling ride through some rapids, guiding you right up next to the splashing cascades. This incredibly fun experience is not to be missed! (The speed boat operator will provide you with plastic bags to keep your camera and other valuables dry. Be sure to wear comfortable shoes, casual clothes, and prepare to get soaked!) Afterwards, you will have a private transfer back to your hotel on the Argentinean side of the falls.
