Travel


Tango is truly a world-wide dance, and many people find that Tango festivals are the main motivation for them to hop on a plane.  Few social gatherings are as open to meeting new people as are milongas.  Before you go somewhere, check the web to see if there's a tango club in your destination.  Taking a class or going to a milonga can be a great way to meet new friends in a city you might not know anything about.

Some helpful travel tips:

  • Pack lighter than you think you'll need.
  • Contact milonga organizers ahead of time to ask what the ambiance is.  Casual?  Fancy?  Then dress accordingly.
  • Always have proper tango shoes, as street shoes can damage wood floors or leave marks.
  • At festivals, see if any hotels are offering discount prices to tango members.

Buenos Aires remains the world's top destination for Argentine Tango, for good reason:  it was this city that gave birth to tango and it remains the mecca for maestros and milongas.  If you've been to Buenos Aires and have a tip or suggestion (Great hotel?  Wonderful milonga?  Etc.) then tell us -- we'll post useful tips, hints, precautions, and suggestions.
