Our twitter follower @shauravd sent us this tip: an amazing price to Buenos Aires! It has not been this low since forever. Really, it hasn’t. The city is definitely one of our team’s favorite cities in South America. In fact, right now one of our team members is actually on the plane back to New York  from Buenos Aires.
