Curator’s statement

This guide has been curated for LGBTQ+ and allies alike that are seeking a new destination. Fun Fact: Argentina was the first country in Latin America to legalize same sex marriage in July of 2010. They also allow same-sex couples to adopt. Buenos Aires has a total of 48 neighborhoods that are all LGBTQ+ friendly. The vibes are stronger in Barrio Norte, Palermo Viejo, and San Telmo. Buenos Aires was a landing spot for European immigrants. Because of this, Buenos Aires has a heavy European influence. Indulge in Latin American and European fusion as you explore what Buenos Aires has to offer!
