Sample Itinerary: BA

 

 

Note: We suggest a lot of activities so you can get the most fun out of your tour. You always haveNY Times Excerpt the alternative of doing your own thing, like relaxing at the hotel pool, watching a movie, or just walking around town.

 

Of course, the activities are different according the group's age and interest. If the players on your team are 8-17, for example, you will want to replace bar tours for movie theaters and a paragliding tour for a paintball day. This is just a sample itinerary and we will make a customized tour plan for you to meet your specific needs. You can get more or less activities depending on your plans and budget.

Boca Juniors won 18 international tournaments and has more fans than all the other teams in Argentina combined.

 

Watching Boca Juniors live is an experience that is really hard to describe. Tens of thousands of people singing, jumping, and screaming for the most exciting 90 minutes of their week is just a start. When we say that you can feel the stadium vibrate, most people think that we are using an analogy. We aren't. It really vibrates. If you don't get goose bumps with all these people around you, please check your pulse.

 

Watching Boca Juniors is THE activity you don't want to miss for anything in the world.
