Remember this weekend is going to be chillier than a typical Buenos Aires day. So if you fancy a quieter weekend you can also get a book or magazine in Spanish and head down to a classic coffee shop like Café Tortoni, El Gato Negro or a lesser known one in your area for a warm and traditional Argentine style Buenos Aires weekend activity.

Take advantage of these weekend activities as well as everything else Road2Argentina has to offer. We are waiting for you in Buenos Aires!
