Fit & Fly Girl Buenos Aires
November 11 - 18, 2017
Join us for Fit & Fly Girl Buenos Aires, which will be held November 11 - 18, 2017, at CasaSur Palermo, a modern boutique hotel located in the chic Palermo Hollywood neighborhood of Buenos Aires. Fit & Fly Girl Buenos Aires will be a cultural retreat, allowing guests to fully enjoy the city and its indulgences!
Buenos Aires, Argentina
Buenos Aires is the capital and largest city in Argentina. Described as the "Paris of South America," the city is known for its European-style architecture, wide boulevards, city parks, tango, opera, and rich culture. With restaurants that don't typically open for dinner until 9 pm and nightclubs not getting started until 2 am, Buenos Aires is a late night city. Porteños (Buenos Aires citizens) live life to the fullest, enjoying such indulgences as parillas (steakhouses), gelato, and Malbec wine. Located in the Southern Hemisphere, the city provides a welcome respite from November's cold weather in the States. Buenos Aires is the perfect location for American shoppers who are able to take advantage of a highly favorable dollar-to-peso exchange rate. Lonely Planet describes the city as "sexy, alive, and supremely confident" - all characteristics that women attending Fit & Fly Girl Buenos Aires will feel after a week of exploring the city.
Fit & Fly Girl Buenos Aires guests will stay at CasaSur Palermo located in the chic Palermo Hollywood neighborhood. Palermo Hollywood is so named for being home to several film and television studios, but it's also known for its proximity to hip restaurants, cocktail bars, coffee shops, and art galleries.
CasaSur Palermo is a newly-built, modern boutique hotel offering sophisticated and stylish accommodations. The hotel boasts a solarium with outdoor swimming pool on the ground level. CasaSur Palermo's rooftop has a terrace with views over the neighborhood and a bar open in warm weather. Also at the hotel is a small spa offering various massages and beauty treatments, a gym, a business center, and the stylish 6TO restaurant, serving modern takes on Argentinian classics.
CasaSur Palermo offers two types of rooms from which you can choose:
- Executive Room - 430 sq. ft. room featuring either one king size bed or two twin beds, a desk that spans the length of the room, and a bathroom and dressing area
- Deluxe Suite - 700 sq. ft. suite featuring a bedroom with either one king size bed or two twin beds, a living room with sofa, and a bathroom with shower and whirlpool tub
CasaSur Palermo's guest rooms and suites are styled with minimalist furniture, hardwood floors, and delicate textures. All rooms and suites are equipped with 42-inch LED televisions, iPod docking station, laptop-size safe, A/C, minibar, Nespresso coffee makers, and complimentary WiFi.
Please note that there will be other guests staying at CasaSur Palermo in addition to Fit & Fly Girl guests.
Activities and Excursions
Fit & Fly Girl Buenos Aires provides an opportunity for women who don't enjoy working out on vacation to join in on the fun! While Fit & Fly Girl retreats typically emphasize the Fit (as in fitness), Fit & Fly Girl Buenos Aires will solely be emphasizing the Fly (as in fabulous travel, dining experiences, and culture). For those guests who do enjoy working out on vacation, there will be opportunities to burn off those decadent Argentinian meals with walks throughout the city, a bike tour, and two private yoga classes offered by Buena Onda Yoga. CasaSur Palermo also offers an on-site gym and complimentary bicycles for guests' use.
During the retreat, there will be various excursions in and around Buenos Aires, including a private tour of historic Recoleta Cemetery, visit to the Eva Peron (Evita) Museum, private cooking lesson and dinner of empanadas hosted by a couple in their beautiful Argentinian home, tour of the Teatro Colon opera house, wine tasting of Argentinian wines hosted by a local wine expert, and an exclusive shopping experience allowing you access to private designer showrooms not available to the public. One day during the retreat, a driver will pick the women up for a "Polo Day" excursion outside of the city, which includes polo lessons, viewing a polo match, a traditional Argentinian asado lunch with unlimited wine, and time to lounge by the polo club's infinity pool or ride bikes around the estancia. One night during the retreat the group will have a private tango experience and dinner at a local restaurant where tango maestros will perform followed by an introductory tango lesson. One complimentary 60-minute massage will be offered during the week.
For a supplemental fee, we are able to arrange any additional activities you would like during your retreat, including private tango lessons, museum visits, additional yoga classes, guided tours not already included in the retreat, private cooking lessons, or a day at the spa.
Fit & Fly Girl Buenos Aires builds plenty of free time into the schedule each day to relax and sit by the pool with a book, go shopping, get a massage, take a nap, or simply hang out with the other women on the retreat.
In keeping with the spirit of Buenos Aires (and in contrast with our other wellness-based retreats), Fit & Fly Girl Buenos Aires will offer meals of decadent food (some with wine included). Buffet breakfasts will be offered at CasaSur Palermo's 6TO restaurant each morning. Lunches will be held at cafes primarily in the Palermo and Recoleta neighborhoods. Dinners will take place at restaurants around the city as well as puertas cerradas (closed-door restaurants in private homes).
