I realized that I was truly a citizen of the world while living in Argentina. I felt very integrated throughout my trip. I had the chance to give back to the community and volunteer. This was the most impactful part of my experience.

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. This cosmopolitan city 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 it's European flair. The City of Buenos Aires is also well recognized as the best city for students in Latin America and has been also placed as the best city in Latin America to live. Buenos Aires is also, at times, crowded, fast-paced, and loud. This is the big city lifestyle. In your study abroad experience in Buenos Aires, you will have the chance to open your mind to new people, new ideas, and new cultures and I’m happy to accompany you in your experience and make you feel like a porteño, native of Buenos Aires! ¡Hasta pronto!
