Vacaciones de invierno: cuatro actividades gratis para hacer con niños en la ciudad de Buenos Aires

Today is the last day of school before winter break. On Monday, the school break begins in the city and province of Buenos Aires, which will last for two weeks, until Friday the 29th of this month. For those who want to take advantage of these rest days to do family activities, here there are four free options to go with the boys.

For 100 years, the tram was a means of urban transportation in Buenos Aires, but in 1963 it stopped working. Today, 25-minute walks through the Caballito neighborhood are offered on weekends. The service is free and without reservation.

During the winter holidays, in addition, there will be a series of special events. For example, tomorrow at 2:00 p.m., a guided tram tour of the Caballito neighborhood will leave from Av. Rivadavia and Emilio Miter, ending at the Centenera Patrimonial Space to learn about the history of the Buenos Aires subway. This activity requires prior registration and is recommended for children between 4 and 14 years old.

During the winter holidays, AySA will open the doors of the Palacio de las Aguas Corrientes, in Riobamba 750, to enjoy educational, recreational and artistic activities as a family.

From July 18 to 30, you can attend a special schedule of shows and workshops for free that will focus on the value of water and caring for the planet. Access to the shows is free and for the workshops prior registration is required by sending an email to

The La Noria archaeological site, with some 800 years of history, stands out for being the oldest in our city. In successive excavations directed by the doctor in archeology Ulises Camino, traces of a human settlement were discovered along with remains of ceramics and bones of animals used for food, where the influence of the deer and the rhea is observed. Already in the 1920s and 1930s, Carlos Rusconi, a tireless naturalist in the city, had discovered not only archaeological remains but also dozens of remains of mammals that lived in the remote past.

The City Government organized a guided tour recommended for children between the ages of 4 and 14, which will take place on Tuesday, July 19, at 3:00 p.m., at Av. Gral. Paz 11750. Admission is free, but prior registration is required.
