GET­TING THERE

Mul­ti­ple car­ri­ers have routes out of Syd­ney and Mel­bourne to Buenos Aires, though Air New Zealand of­fers one of the quicker op­tions with just a soli­tary stopover. airnewzealand.com.au

AC­COM­MO­DA­TION

The el­e­gance and ap­peal of both Hub Porteño and Mi­ravida Soho are hard to over­look. hub­porteno.com; mi­ravi­da­soho.com

TIPS

* The city is at its most pleas­ant in au­tumn (April-june) and spring (Sept-nov), when the weather is tem­per­ate and the crowds thin­ner. * Pay­ing for goods in US dol­lars, as op­posed to the re­cently de­val­ued Ar­gen­tine peso, can of­ten mean a de­cent dis­count. * If you want to visit a speakeasy, make sure to book in ad­vance to se­cure any pass­words or de­tails needed to make it in­side. * Don’t want to see one of the touristy tango shows? Try a mi­longa in­stead where you can in­ter­act with other am­a­teurs on the dance floor.
