5. Stay out all night

Buenos Aires is a city for night owls. Argentines eat dinner around 10 p.m., don't go out until 2 a.m. and usually come home when the sun comes up. Here's a great list of all the best nightclubs (boliches).

6. Join a soccer league


If you're looking to make some local friends in BA, joining a soccer (fútbol) league is the best way to do it. Buenos Aires Fútbol Amigos (BAFA) attracts people from all over the world and from every level of play.


8. See Fuerza Bruta


This nationally known performance art group is a must-see in Buenos Aires. Just know that you might be hugged, slightly misted and danced with. It's an amazing visual and interactive experience.
