Running in Buenos Aires parksWhile vacationing, exercise may not be one of the things on your mind. But if you find yourself in Buenos Aires and have an urge to go running without going to a gym, don’t fret.

Bridge over Palermo Lake in Buenos AiresFor a respite from the chaos and airbrakes of Capital Federal, not to mention some sweet paddleboat action, take a quick trip to the very accessible lakes in Palermo. I mean, they are only a short ride on the D line Subte away. Come on, its nothing. After getting off at the Palermo station stop take a stroll down Avenida Internacional Bullrich for about eight blocks and you have arrived at the shores of serenity. Or, if you prefer, you can ask a taxi to take you to the corner (la esquina) of Avenida Libertador and Iraola.
