Voted the best city in South America, Buenos Aires is just that when it comes to entertaining children. Porteños bring their children everywhere, from the park to the bar, so don’t be surprised if you see a gaggle of toddlers running around at 11pm!
Museo de los Niños, is a mini world, where you can wile away a rainy afternoon playing ‘grown up’. Doctors, journalists, chefs; kids can be anything they want to be, and with the museums moto ‘learning by doing’ they certainly will, by going to the bank, having a job and shopping for hours!

Museo Participativo de las Ciencias, it is in Spanish, but that won’t phase even the toughest of critics with a strict ‘No Touching is Forbidden’ rule. Kids and grown-ups alike will certainly be entertained by the interactive displays and flashing lights.Junin 1930
Planetario Galileo Galilei, learn all about the solar system in the magnificent planetarium – when they’ve had enough of space treat them to candy floss and popcorn outside by the pond.Av. Sarmiento s/n, 1425
Buenos Aires boasts some beautiful parks, but Parque 3 Febrero, also know as ‘Bosques de Palermo’, is perfect for a sunny day. Rent pedal boats or bicycles… or both! The options are endless.
Don’t forget to have an ice cream from one of the city’s amazing heladarias – Dulce de Leche is a firm favourite. There are so many flavours to choose from, dulce de leche and chocolate for children and a interesting, but delicious malbec for parents.Every street corner
The popular Uruguayan crepe chain ‘Crepas‘, has made the move to hip neighbourhood, Palermo Soho. You can’t miss the neon pink signs, or the paintings all over the walls. Kids will love the endless menu, (there are healthy options too) and watching their chosen crepe, being expertly made by a team of young chefs.Gurruchaga 1791
