After our first leg of this birding trip we took a couple of days to visit Buenos Aires and to soak-in some of the local culture; BA is a beautiful city and our stay was very memorable.
Costanera Sur was an old riverside resort which was restored to and Ecological Reserve back in the 1970. Today it is a protected reserve in the middle of the city just east of Puerto Madero which also was an old port build in the late 1800s and is now restored into a 21 st century waterfront project.
Here is the main entrance to Costanera Sur:
I am always concerned about my camera when I am in any city but this place is gated and had some policing. We felt pretty safe and managed to get some nice photos and even some new birds!
Buenos Aires was good to us, birds and culture, all in the same place.
