Buenos Aires, Argentina
Price drop from 2018: 21%
2019 will see median booking prices to Buenos Aires fall from $1,499 to $1,191, savings which many of you will wish spend on steak only to find that a full dinner, wine included, may only cost you $20 anyway. Similarly cheap is the pleasant ritual of merienda, or afternoon tea and light sandwiches -- find one of the city’s many cafes and enjoy empanadas or a perfectly toasted jamon y queso with a cup of tea or vino. On Sundays from spring to fall, you can take advantage of the beloved Feria de Mataderos, an outdoor market featuring the food, music, dancing, and horsemanship displays of the gauchos, the country’s traditional cowboys. All year round you can walk the colorful streets of La Boca, shop the flea and antique markets in the historic neighborhood of San Telmo, or grab lunch from one of the street food vendors serving up grilled sandwiches for a couple bucks in the wide open park spaces of Palermo, before touring the nearby chic bars and shops in the afternoon. And whether the occasion calls for coffee or for wine, visit Cafe Tortoni -- one of the most beloved and historic nooks in the country -- especially for the nightly tango shows.
