Buenos Aires is alive with culture, cocktails and nightlife — the perfect recipe for a fling before the ring. If you’re looking to throw a bachelorette party in Buenos Aires, here are some activities to set your sights on.

 

Shop in Palermo

The budding Palermo district is the neighborhood of choice for hipster locals and university students. Stay at an AirBnB in the Palermo Hollywood district and use it as a home base to explore the many eateries, cafés and boutiques along the tree-lined streets.

 

Cooking Class

Book a private cooking class and learn about the rich Argentinian cooking culture while sipping on wines from different regions of the country. Tierra Negra is run by a husband and wife duo in their home in Palermo and the empanada one is world-class.

 

Tango Classes

It’s considered a faux pas to insert yourself on the dance floor at a tango bar without knowing how to properly dance. Sign up for private lessons with your girls to learn the basic steps before heading out for the night. La Viruta Tango Club offers lessons for beginners that will quickly get you up to speed on how to twirl and tango with confidence.

 

Family-Style Dinner

A night at Proper will be remembered fondly by the foodies in the group. The trendy dinner restaurant is housed inside a former mechanic shop and debuted on Latin America’s 50 Best Restaurants list last year. The menu is made for sharing small plates, perfect for large groups. They don’t take reservations, so be sure to show up at least 15 minutes before they open the doors to snag a spot.

Under $100: Brooklyn

Start your day in Brooklyn with breakfast at a cozy, hidden spot — The Little Sweet Cafe. The French-inspired eatery serves sweet and savory crêpes, along with a tantalizing and seemingly endless array of pastries. Top your breakfast off with either fresh coffee or a mimosa and grab the lone table next to the window to people watch. Your breakfast will be less than $15.

Leave Troublesome Rideshare Worries Behind

We can see it now and remember when it happened to us: Watching as the black car icon loops around and around, seemingly endlessly, and our wait time on the rideshare app continually changes. Long wait times and confused drivers are just a few bothersome issues that can nag at rideshare users. Need a solution? Ditch rideshares altogether in favor of renting a car on your next trip.

How to Spend a Vancouver Layover in Richmond

So you have a layover at Vancouver International Airport. If you only have a few hours, don’t head all the way into the city; stay in Richmond (where the airport happens to be located) and have a great layover. All you have to do is take the Canada Line from the airport, with service every few minutes, and it takes you straight to central Richmond.

Take Me to Tahiti

Mana is the life force Tahitians believe connects all things.
