How do you fall in love with a city?

A place beckons you with some nostalgic, romanticized notion, a South American capital with European charm, the passion of music and words pulsing through the people who call it home. You yearn for moments that will remain with you, memories more fragile than photographs, times that stay, linger through your mind years later when you’re cooking dinner, relaxing on your back porch, or browsing in a store. Once you experience this city, Buenos Aires is a part of you forever.

The 4 Perfect Days in Buenos Aires e-book provides you with an itinerary so that you know on which places to focus your time.

What you’ll find out in the book

  • A plan for spending 4 wonderful days in Buenos Aires
  • Info about transport from airport
  • Suggestions for places to eat
  • A list of more than 20 picture-perfect spots, some of which are in no other guidebook about the city
  • Plenty of photos to help you visualize the city
  • Covers all major sections of the city: Barrio Norte/Recoleta, Downtown, La Boca, Palermo, & San Telmo
  • Locations of charming and memorable cafés for that perfect Buenos Aires experience

    It would be handy for me if you made this available to Amazon so I could download it to my Kindle which will come loaded to BsAs in July. I am sure I would not be the only one.


  2. Jeff says:

    Hi Nancy, I thought about that but I don’t have a Kindle for testing the format.

    Hi Jeff,Is the book available in print yet (and if so in uk ) as we are visiting 17th -26th Nov (25th wedding anniversary) and would like to have it by then.
    Read 30 things to do—great and the history you wrote that can be downloaded -Brilliant. Thanks

  8. Jeff says:

    Hi Dawne, No the book is the only available as an e-book. But with the ebook comes a section that can easily be printed for carrying with you.

    Have a great trip. Happy anniversary!

  9. matilde says:

    Jeff, you should visit El Zanjon de Granados. It´s a restored house built in 1830. A river ran beneath the house and you can walk through the tunnels. It´s really interesting. check the website! Thanks

  10. Jeff says:

    @Mathilde: that’s a great suggestion. I’ve been intending for so long to visit El Zanjon de Granados. It looks fascinating.

  11. Tania says:

    Hi Jeff, I just bought this book- its perfect for my first trip to Argentina- where i have exactly 4 days in Buenos Aires to start off!
    I noticed you mention that packaged with the ebook is a condensed section for printing? can you explain which section as i cant seem to find it.

  12. Jeff says:

    Hi Tania, Thanks for buying the ebook! In the zip file that you download when you purchased the book are two pdf files: one is the full-color ebook & the other pdf is a text-only version of the ebook. It’s the text-only version that is good for printing.

  13. Doug says:

    Hi Jeff
    Do you if your book can be downloaded to an Ipod touch

  14. Jeff says:

    @Doug: if you can view a PDF on the iPod Touch, then you can view my ebook on it. (Eventually I plan to have a non-PDF version for mobile devices and Kindles but not yet.)

    Hi Janet & Chad,

    Thanks for good words about the book. I am working on updates but not sure when that will be ready. Keep an eye on this blog for more info. Enjoy your trip to Buenos Aires!

    Headed to BA with my husband & 9 month old baby for a business trip/vacation for 17 days. I am so glad I found your ebook.
    It took me a little extra time but I printed out in color all 33 pages because the pictures are beautiful and add so much. Then I laminated them together 1, 2&3 back to back, etc. and made my own book. It turned out great and now we can take it with us without the pages getting ruined.

  19. Jeff says:

    Hi Jalene,

    Thanks so much for buying the e-book. So cool you found a way to have the full color e-book in print & portable.

    Have a great trip to BA!

    You should have received an email with the download link.

    Thanks for buying the ebook & have a great visit to Buenos Aires!

  22. david newman says:

  23. Jeff says:

    @David: the book is still only available as an e-book. I do also have an app version of the book for iPhone. But no print version yet.

  24. Caroline says:

    Jeff do you have an app for my blackberry? Off to BA in 2 weeks it would be very handy!

  25. Jeff says:

    @Caroline, sorry no Blackberry version. Enjoy BA!

  26. karin says:


    Loved what I saw ! have a look at my blog ( and soon to be website ), and was wondering if you were planning a section on boutique hotels?


  27. Michelle says:

    I assume this will work on a Kobo e-reader? Is there any way to see a sneak preview of your book before I purchase it?
    Thanks…off to BA next week.

  28. Jeff says:

    Hi Michelle,

    It’s a PDF, not in epub ebook format. I’m not sure how Kobo handles PDF. So it might not work on Kobo. Sorry.
