Beaches In Argentina - Outside Buenos Aires
Unlike Rio, Buenos Aires itself doesn't really have beaches. Still, in February and March there's no shortage of men and women skimpily sunning themselves in the parks of Recoleta and Palermo.
Beachgoers head to Mar del Plata, a few hours south of Buenos Aires. Local travel company Calu Travel (www.calutravel.com.ar) has its own gay resort down there.
In February, gay men in the know head to the nearby Province of Entre Rios for Argentina's little-known Carnaval de Gualeguaychú (www.carnavaldelpais.com.ar). It's got all the hot bodies of Rio, and the spectacle runs every weekend in February.
