What to expect
Music: QuinTango performances (including a collaboration with celebrated tango singer, Nelson Pino), a professional tango show, the Festival Internacional de Colonia (featuring concerts of ALL music genres, from Beethoven to silent movie music, and of course our very own QuinTango concert!)
Dancing: The option to take tango lessons, and dance at a milonga! We will be guided by our resident tango dancer and old friend, Victor Rua.
Culture: A talk on the culture of tango and economics in Argentina, museum visits (Evita Museum, Carlos Gardel museum, Jewish museum, Latin American Art Museum), and a chance to see Romeo and Juliet ballet at the Colon Theater.
Great food and wine: Including an evening in the ultra-hip restaurant scene in Palermo, a traditional tango show and dinner, and a visit to a winery in Carmelo.
Time to browse and explore: Antique fairs and tango exhibitions, amazing arts and crafts vendors, coffee at the historic Café Tortoni, a visit to La Boca (the colorful old port area famous for its art fair and street tango music and dance), and a trip to the river world of El Tigre.
Hotels you won’t want to leave: We’ll stay in 4-star hotels – El Palladio in BA (Recoleta), Hilton Garden Inn in Montevideo (a few blocks from the beach!), and Radisson in Colonia (on the river). All hotels have swimming pools, lobby bars, and workout rooms – and we will have leisurely complimentary breakfasts every morning where we can exchange information over a second cup of coffee.
