This newly renovated port is the perfect place to take that special someone for an evening stroll. At night, the lights from the riverbank reflect on the water’s surface, creating a romantic ambiance that is second to none. Be sure to include a crossing of Puente de las Mujeres (Women’s Bridge) which was designed to appear like two tango dancers in a passionate embrace. After the walk, why not go for a drink or a bite to eat at one of the many trendy restaurants and bars on the water front?

A walk through the city’s most beautiful park is the perfect way to get to know a new flame or enjoy a relaxing moment with a loved one. The massive park is connected by a number of well manicured paths, lined with shady trees, as well as elegant statues and fountains. Its centerpiece is a small but picturesque lake where paddle boats can be hired, the perfect way to escape the crowds and get a little alone time. If things are going well, stop by the huge rose garden to smell some of the 12,000 flowers on display.

3. See a Tango Show

Known throughout the world as a dance synonymous with love, a Tango show is the quintessential Buenos Aires date. Combining the show with a three course candlelit dinner and wine makes for an unforgettably romantic evening. Try El Querandí in San Telmo who are one of the best options in the city. Want to take the romance up a notch? Add some Tango lessons on top for the perfect passionate night out.

4. Gondolas Turisticas

Get a taste of Venice right here in Buenos Aires. Tourist Gondolas ply the calm waters of the Puerto Madero district on hour long private voyages, taking in all the major attractions such as Puente de las Mujeres from an entirely new perspective. This romantic boat ride is sure to be a hit, but those looking to really impress should consider hiring a musician to serenade their lover along the way.

If your special someone is even remotely interested in opera, ballet or orchestra, then a night out at Buenos Aires’ exquisite Teatro Colón is an absolute must. Built in 1908, the elegant horseshoe shaped auditorium is the epitome of old-world charm. Its massive chandeliers and prestigious raised balconies are part of the reason why the theater is internationally famous, although true music aficionados will appreciate the fact that it has among the world’s best acoustics as well.
