The Superclásico is known all over the world for its fierceness, competitiveness and the passion it awakens among supporters and the players alike. In 2004, English newspaper The Observer put the Superclásico in Boca’s La Bombonera atop a list titled “50 Sporting Things You Must Do Before You Die.”
Boca and River are the two most popular teams in Argentina by a wide margin. Boca owns the hearts of 41 percent of the population of Argentina, while River is followed by 32 percent of Argentines. In terms of the percentage of a country’s population, Boca is the most popular club football team in the world.
Buenos Aires combines faded European grandeur with Latin passion. Sexy and alive, this beautiful city gets under your skin.
BA’s food scene is increasingly dynamic, but for many travelers, it’s the city’s carnivorous pleasures that shine. Satisfying a craving for juicy steaks isn’t hard to do in the land that has perfected grilling wonderfully flavorful sides of beef, washed down with a generous glass of malbec or bonarda. Parrillas (steakhouses) sit on practically every corner and will offer up myriad cuts, from bife de chorizo (sirloin) to vacio (flank steak) to ojo de bife (rib eye). But leave room for ice cream, if you can – a late-night cone of dulce de leche (caramel) helado can’t be topped.
Look closely: this city is beautiful. Sure, it might look like a concrete jungle from certain angles, but stroll through the streets, paying attention to the magnificent architecture around you, and you’ll soon be won over. Grand French- and Italian-style palaces grab the limelight, but you’ll see interesting architectural details in the buildings of even low-key, local barrios. These days the beauty of these traditional neighborhoods is further enhanced by colorful murals painted by artists involved in the city’s vibrant street-art scene. For these talented individuals, the city is their canvas.
Take a disco nap, down some coffee and be prepared to stay up all night – this city doesn’t sleep. Restaurants get going at 9pm, bars at midnight and clubs at 2am at the earliest; serious clubbers don’t show up until 4am. And it’s not just the young folk who head out on the town in this city; BA’s diverse range of bars, clubs and live-music venues offers something for everyone, from DJs spinning electronica to live jazz sets. Just remember you’ll be doing it all very late.
