Buenos Aires - Evening Tango show and dinner

Free day. In the evening enjoy a typical Tango show and dinner at the Esquina Carlos Gardel. The tango is the music of Buenos Aires. It originated in the 1880 ghettos which were populated by Italian and Spanish immigrants, Africans and gauchos. The tango rose from a mix of Cuban and Spanish rhythms, some polka, and according to some, also a bit of African music. At “Esquina Carlos Gardel” one can enjoy excellent cuisine and an art noveau style of decor which faithfully recreates the sophistication of the most luxurious salons of the time. At midnight return to the hotel.
