Top Reasons Why To Love Summer In Buenos Aires:
Tits and Ass on the News
It wouldn’t be an Argentine summer without tits and ass shown on TV – and LOTS of it. Everywhere you look HOLA TETAS, HOLA CULOS. Imagine a combination of a D-level small town news channel teaming up with Wild On E! or MTV Spring Break.
Argentina is known for their funny, inventive commercials – especially when summertime rolls around. These pretty much exemplify how Argies are quite creative when it comes to publicidades.

Real and Fake Beaches
Many will say that the best Argentine beaches are in Uruguay. But despite what these beach snobs say, there are beautiful weekend vacation spots along the Costa Atlántica. Steer clear of the Mar del Plata craziness, the Jersey Shore’s latino cousin, and check out more relaxed destinations like Mar Azul, Cariló, Mar de Las Pampas and Villa Gesell.
If you can’t make it to the real beach, no need to worry – you can stay in Capital and still get the whole playa experience: yellow umbrellas, sand, beach volleyball, outdoor showers – you know, everything important minus the actual ocean. Visit Buenos Aires Playa, Peru Beach or even a plaza in your barrio and it’s almost like the real thing.
Riding on the subway can be hell on earth – it’s like walking into a sauna that has never been cleaned, filled with garbage, urine, and pushy old ladies with hand fans. But when summer rolls around, the number of sweaty men in suits slightly decreases, fatties with dripping arm pits manage not to get up in your grill, and elbowing middle aged woman (and men) tend not to push so hard to get a seat.
