These are the two top kosher restaurants in BA.
http://www.tucsonrestaurante.com.ar
http://www.asiankosher.com

Enjoy buenos aires as the most european-style city in South America.
Check out the port "Puerto Maderos" lined with cafes, hotels and shops, check out "Florida" an all pedestrian street with artisans and flee markets after sunset.
Take a boat ride at Tigre's Delta river, and enjoy a picnic or BBQ by the water.
Don't forget to stop for a bite at the only Kosher McDonald's in the world at the Abasto shopping mall.
Enjoy more than 20 kosher restaurants in Buenos Aires.
Fly north to the Iguazu waterfalls. Cross over to Brazil to see a different view. Take a boat ride and/or helicopter ride. While you're there enjoy the bird park "Parque das Aves".
Fly south to Calafate (glaciers) and Bariloche (lakes and ski resorts).
While you're in the area, if you have time, check out Punta Del Este, a beautiful beach town in Uruguay.
There's way more to do in BA, this is in a nutshell because I have to run now... Post more later!

Do not miss Argentina's icecreams. Two of the main chains (Persicco and Freddo) have a special kosher line.

ive been going back and forth with the park hyatt BA trying to get kosher food and upgraded to a suite so far Iv'e gotten the suite but they want to charge for the food here are the emails

The Food
Dear Mr. E,

Greetings from Palacio Duhau - Park Hyatt Buenos Aires!

I am contacting you regarding your breakfast request of Kosher Catering Service.

As Mrs. Ramirez have explained you before, we work with a Catering Service Company for Kosher food, which provides a very good service and food quality. 

Im afraid that the Kosher Service can not be offered complimentary since it is an outside company that provides it.

As soon as we recieve the Kosher Menu it will be sent to you.

I remain at your disposal for any request you may need.

The Suite
Dear Mr E,

It is a pleasure to contact you back again!

Regarding to your inquiry below, as a Diamond Member, we  will gladly guarantee an upgrade to a suite.
