Buenos Aires, Argentina
Through centuries of dynamic history since its founding in 1536, Buenos Aires has become Argentina's largest and most populated city. The original city founded during a Spanish expedition led by Pedro de Mendoza is now known as the San Telmo district of Buenos Aires. Now the country's capital, this city is divided into 48 barrios (or neighborhoods) and is home to nearly 13 million people. Buenos Aires has a humid subtropical climate unaccustomed to extreme temperatures during any party of the year. The city is home to a world-renowned theater, both sacred and popular art, a world-famous zoo, and spectacular botanical gardens. The suburbs of Buenos Aires are the birthplace of the sensual dance, the Tango. A stay in Buenos Aires is sure to provide an intense cultural experience for students.
