Buenos Aires is a breath of old Europe within Latin America, and a captivating city of contrasts. The city's resilient, tango-dancing residents, porteños, survived a dictatorship, corrupt governments, and the colossal effects of the 2001 peso devaluation with their dignity intact. Today, elegant boulevards, Old World cafés, charming bohemian neighborhoods, and up-until-dawn nightlife conspire to make Argentina's capital one of the world's great cultural playgrounds.
