12 Must-Do Experiences in Buenos Aires
Visiting Buenos Aires is more about cultural experiences than sightseeing. From tango to architecture, fútbol (soccer) to gaucho fairs, guided street art walks to photography tours, old-fashioned cafés to classic cocktails, closed-door restaurants to hole-in-the-wall parrillas where you can feast on Argentina's legendary steak, Buenos Aires has so much to offer the curious traveler. Here are a few of the experiences you won't want to miss in Buenos Aires.

If you ever get the chance to go to a futbol game in Latin America - go. These games and stadiums put the NFL to shame. In Buenos Aires, River Plate is one of several teams that show off their pride, blanketed in red and white, within their 80,000 capacity stadium where no alcohol or visiting team fans are allowed inside (due to the multiple fanatic-induced deaths last season).

Look for the standing-room-only, hard core fans in the upper end zone called Los Borrachos del Tabon, The Drunks of the Terraces. They lead the entire stadium in 90 minutes of non-stop cheers, songs, clapping, shouting and all around mayhem. There's even a band up there. It's outstanding.
