Buenos Aires itself is a superlativeby Jorge Luis Borges
Buenos Aires is the capital and largest city of Argentina, and the second-largest metropolitan area in South America. It is located on the western shore of the estuary of the Río de la Plata, on the continent's southeastern coast. The Greater Buenos Aires conurbation, which also includes several Buenos Aires Province districts, constitutes the third-largest conurbation in Latin America, with a population of around fifteen and a half million.
Buenos Aires is the most visited city in South America (ahead of Rio de Janeiro) and the second most visited city across Spanish Latin America. It is also one of the most important, largest and most populous of South American capitals.
Buenos Aires is a top tourist destination, and is known for its European-style architecture and rich cultural life, with the highest concentration of theatres in the world. There are direct flights to Buenos Aires from most major Latin American cities, many major US cities (including Atlanta, New York, Washington, Miami, Dallas, Houston) and EU cities (including London, Paris, Rome, Madrid, Amsterdam, Estambul, Frankfurt, Zurich). There are also direct flights from major cities from the rest of the world (including Johannesburg, Doha, Sydney).
