Pink flamingos, furry chinchillas, giant toco toucans all gather at the 85-acre Bioparque Temiken, a 30-minute drive outside the city. This combo zoo-aquarium is the hot spot for Argentine wildlife (5,000 animals, 400 species), housed in recreated natural habitats. Patagonia curious? Bioparque Temiken tempts with interactive exhibits about South America’s southernmost region. Note: Those youngsters too small to keep up with the bigger kids may make use of a playground for toddlers on the premises.
