Gay Guide to Buenos Aires

Legendary nightlife, extraordinary architecture … and porteños (the Spanish word for the men of the port city Buenos Aires.)  These are a few of the many of the reasons why Argentina’s capital city remains a gay travel mecca.  Our 2016 guide to the Buenos Aires’ bars and clubs is an excellent way to find the best of the city.

For gay travelers, the city’s pride parade (the Marcha del Orgullo Gay) takes place on first Saturday of November and is perfectly timed with the start of spring in South America.  Tourists will find warm temperatures, hot guys, and blooming jacaranda trees.

International flights to Buenos Aires are frequent, but not cheap (check for flight deals to EZE airport.)  As of 2015, visitors from certain countries are required to pre-pay a reciprocity fee before entering Argentina.  Here’s an explanation of the policy and here’s where you can pay online and receive a printout. (Update from March 2016: The fee for US citizens has been revoked following President Obama’s historic visit to Argentina.)

For general tourist information, we still recommend the Lonely Planet: Guide to Buenos Aires.  Combine it with our up-to-date gay guide below and you will fall in love with Buenos Aires!
