VERONIKA KRUTA

Since 2014 I have spent more time in Buenos Aires than back home in the US - exploring every nook and cranny BA has to offer, learning spanish, studying tango with a variety of teachers, and of course dancing ALL THE TIME!

So I am beyond thrilled to finally share this experience with you! I know just how hard it can be to figure out where to dance, who to study with, how to get around and all the other logistical stuff that took me MONTHS to figure out, not to mention how to get dances at the milongas!

I am constantly getting messages from people asking for my recommendations on Buenos Aires.  So finally I decided to follow the wind and create this guided tour for you! So, my tango obsessed friend... just sit back - er.. I mean put your tango shoes on and let me organize the logistics while you focus on having fun and dancing to the max!!!

ACCOMODATIONS

THE CASA DE SOL TANGO GUEST HOUSE

A gorgeous guest house, rich with historic charm located in the neighborhood of Recoleta, conveniently central to many of the city's milongas.

The guest house has a studio where most of our scheduled activities will take place. It is also free for guests to use whenever they like so you can practice in your free time!

There is also a beautiful rooftop terrace where we will have our welcome brunch and asado/charla with the instructors. 

PLEASE SEE  THE DETAILED INFO BELOW ON BOOKING YOUR ROOM AT THE GUEST HOUSE:

cost

Single Rooms $30 USD / Per Night
Double Rooms w/ shared bath $50 USD / Per Night
Double Rooms w/ private bath $60 USD / Per Night
Please send a message directly to EVA KARSZA, owner/manager of the guest house to book your room.

TO BOOK:

SPILLOVER

Since there are not enough rooms to accomodate our whole group, once the guest house fills, you can book at La Maleva Tango Guest House which is just a 12 minute walk from the Casa De Sol and also has single/double rooms available. If you prefer a hotel I recommend the Hotel O-Baires which is 2 blocks from the guest house and also has reasonable rates. I also suggest checking out airbnb if you'd prefer to have different accomodations during your stay.

roommates

There are 2 small single rooms with shared bath; 2 double rooms with shared bath, and 1 double room with private bath. So they can accommodate a total of 8 people if some of you choose to have a roommate. If you'd like to coordinate with someone we will have a facebook group for all of the participants.
