Packing for Buenos Aires

Jump to last reply

Well, not packing quite yet but beginning to think about it. Staying in BA the whole time except for a couple of days in Iguazu.

We'll be there the first two weeks of May which, as I check the weather websites, seems to be in the 60 to 70 degree range. That's more or less like our fall. So I'm thinking light wool or heavier cotton pants, good jeans, a variety of tops with sweaters to go over them, light jackets, maybe one dress. Some pants and tops will be nice enough to wear to a decent restaurant. Good walking shoes and a pair of decent dressier shoes. A hat of some sort.

I know this is pretty general but am I forgetting or not thinking of something?

Friends of our just came back and during their visit to Iguazu Falls, they got soaked by the spray. She suggests taking a raincoat but I really don't want to pack that for just one event. I was thinking about bringing along a couple of those cheap, disposable rain ponchos. I know we'll look like dorks but at least we'll be dry dorks. What do you think?

Any packing suggestions at all would be appreciated. We've traveled in SA before but that was Brazil and I don't remember what time of year it was, though it was warm. We've never been to BA before and don't really know how 'formal' dress expectations are.

Thanks,
gtg
