Yes, CAPA global cities are bursting with people from around the globe and are inevitably full of social and networking opportunities. They're also home to some pretty amazing quieter places though, and are host to tons of activities that give the introverts among us a chance to recharge and perhaps discover another, more peaceful, side of a bustling metropolis. Here are 10 of our favorites in Buenos Aires:
1. ENJOY THE PARKS & PLAZAS. While Buenos Aires isn't a city particularly celebrated for its acres of green space, there are still plenty of parks and plazas that offer an opportunity for a moment of solitude among the millions of commuters and tourists filling city streets. For convenience, we love Parque Lezama in San Telmo with its proximity to the market where you can pick up a bite to eat. Jardin Botánico Carlos Thays, another favorite, is a lush oasis with plenty of shade and pretty historic greenhouses. Bring a book, sip a mate and chill. The Borderless Project shares their top 8 parks in BA, worth a read. It's not bad on a rainy day either with a visit to the Planetarium.
