From our Resident Director

Mariela Diaz

CAPA Buenos Aires Resident Director

Buenos Aires is a vibrant, energetic, and cosmopolitan urban environment. Nearly 14 million people live in the city and its surrounding suburbs! It is truly a global city and is regarded by many as "the Paris of South America" because it has such a great selection of high quality museums, galleries, theaters, and film festivals, and because of its European flair. Buenos Aires is also well recognized as the best city for students in Latin America and has been named the best city in Latin America in which to live. It is also, at times, crowded, fast-paced, and loud. This is the big city lifestyle. During your study abroad experience in Buenos Aires, you will have the chance to open your mind to new people, new ideas, and new cultures. I’m happy to accompany you in your experience and help you feel like a porteño: a native of Buenos Aires! ¡Hasta pronto!
