Touring Buenos Aires by Bike

Explore the city of Buenos Aires on one of our special bike tours
through the city that never sleeps. Provided by your Argentina specialists,
Argentina For Less.

 

Buenos Aires
is a vast city, one of the biggest in South America. Famous for its tango and
never sleeping population, it has a lot to offer.

 

What makes Buenos Aires so special is that the
city is split up into many different areas and neighborhoods that each retain
their own atmosphere and culture.

 

Much of the
divide is along old class lines, with the leafy areas of Palermo and Recoleta
normally home to the wealthy and the urban chic area of San Telmo and colorful
La Boca for a more working class population.

 

However, as
the city grows and new immigrant arrivals are not so easily divided as they
once were, the city is becoming more and more cosmopolitan with areas offering
something for everyone.

 

The public
transport system in the city can be pretty complex, with buses running to all
destinations and the necessity to have the exact change for the bus, when
change is actually impossible, makes travelling around pretty difficult.

 

One of the
best ways to tour the city is by bike. More and more Porteños are buying bikes and using them to explore the increasing
number of cycle lanes that are popping up around the city.

 

However, tourists
are also taking an interest in this increasingly easy way to explore the city.

 

There are a
number of tour companies that offer the bike tours that take in a number of
different areas.
