Where is the funkiest Latin American city?
Buenos Aires hands down. From the brightly coloured buildings of La Boca, the grafitti blitzed walls of Villa Crespo, the street markets and flash street-dancers of San Telmo to the chic-boho vibe of Palermo Soho.
And where to party?
If you’re looking for the best street parties with salsa dancers and bars brimming with caipirinhas, head for Lapa in Rio. If rum’s your tipple, get up to Cartagena for rooftop cocktails with ocean views. For everything else, querido Buenos Aires, where no self-respecting Porteño deems to eat before 10pm and arrive at a boliche before 2am. Or leave before 8am, for that matter.
Where to view the best private art collection?
Head to a former ink factory, now The Vergez Collection, in Buenos Aires, where you will find a lavish collection of international and local contemporary art. Another absolute must, is the invite-only 10th storey penthouse of José Darío Gutiérrez in Bogota.
