Buenos Aires or Cordoba

I will go to Argentina for 3 months and now I have the choice between Cordoba or Buenos Aires.

I will do there a language course and a working experience and i think both cities have advantages and disadvantages:

+ Global city
+ much culture etc
+ La Boca, Boca Juniors
- maybe to big

+ the support of the organisation is better
+ it is cheaper
+ the size of the city makes it easier to grasp and maybe it is easier to find friends
- it is no cosmopolitan city like Buenos Aires

What do you think about these cities?
Maybe you can halp me and give me some information.

Thanks, Loesti

Hello Loesti. I'm from Buenos Aires. I think that BA is a better option than Cordoba to learn a language and to gain some working experience. Being a big city may be a bit scary, but it is friendly too and prepared to receive visitors. People in BA is more open minded that people in other provinces. However, I would recommend you to take a week to visit both cities before choosing.

Having been to both cities recently I would definitely choose BA. I don´t think that BA is more expensive than Cordoba - in fact we had some of our cheapest meals in Argentina there! Reply to this
