Summary: If you are able to overlook Argentina's never-ending political and economic crises, life in the beautiful capital city of Buenos Aires is pretty good. This city of nearly 3 million is rich with literary, artistic and theatre culture. Real estate tip: rent don't buy.

What are the pros and cons of living in Buenos Aires?

Expats, digital nomads and retirees living in Buenos Aires responded:

"Argentines are lovely people but they are mercilessly exploited by the people they elect to govern them. If you can stay away from politics, life for an expat - especially when married to a local - is very good. There is a very rich literary, artistic and theatre culture which most other cities elsewhere would envy - bar London and New York, of course. I am retired and married to a local so most of the bureaucratic problems wash over me but if you have to earn a living here, the tax and employment legislation can be a nightmare. My advice to an individual, coming on their own would be to do their homework very thoroughly indeed. Someone coming to work for a local corporation should be very sure of exactly what they are coming into and should ask for practical help in getting started with accommodation etc etc. Someone coming to work for the multinational company that already employs them elsewhere should insist that the company sets things up for them from the get-go. So much time and frustation in finding out the local way of doing things is the ONLY way of doing things can be avoided by planning and preparation - and if you can get somebody already on the ground to do that for you so much the better," explained one expat living in Buenos Aires .
