In a city filled with great food, stunning architecture, vibrant color and beautiful people - I must say that the trees are what stole the show. There is an enviably amount of greenery in Buenos Aires from its parks to its city streets - this is a place that truly embraces nature. Here are a few of my favorite green finds...
Jacaranda trees are plentiful and attract many tourists in the spring time when they are in full bloom and loaded with delicate lavender-colored flowers. Brought to Buenos Aires in the late 1800s, the jacaranda was planted all over the city for its ornamental value. Their long, curvy branches are magical.
Plaza San Martin
Paseo El Rosedal
Located in the Palermo neighborhood, the city's rose park is a well manicured garden filled with over a 1,000 species of roses. A popular venue for weddings and secret rendezvous, the air is filled with the smell of romance (and roses, of course). It is a perfect destination for a morning walk.
Jardim Botanico Carlos Thays
Jardim Botanico is located on an 18-acre, triangular shaped, piece of land in Palermo. The park boasts various landscape gardening styles - Roman, French and Oriental. With over 5,000 species of plants, an antique French greenhouse & beautiful statues hidden along the paths, the visual display is stunning.
