Soccer fans will relish a trip to Buenos Aires
Thursday 26 April 2012
One place that often gets overlooked by people who are searching for an affordable overseas holiday is Argentina. This is quite surprising, as the South American country has everything a traveller could possibly want and Aussies can also take advantage of the strength of their home currency. With the Aussie dollar still relatively strong compared to most of its rivals, people from down under will get the best exchange rates for years when they head to Buenos Aires. At the moment, one Aussie dollar will get you around 4.57 Argentinean pesos. As well as being a cultural melting pot, Buenos Aires is also famous for its passion for soccer and visitors can now stay in the country's first ever football-themed hotel. Boca Juniors – one of the nation's biggest clubs – has built an impressive five-star luxury skyscraper in the district of San Telmo. The legendary Diego Maradona once played for Boca and the team's current crop of players will also stay in the hotel on the night before matches. Have a question about travel money?
