When the summer heat makes pounding the pavement too unpleasant to bear, do what the locals do and head over to Punta Carrasco. A riverfront swimming complex featuring three pools (including one for kids only and one for adults only), bars, cafes, live DJs, volleyball and soccer courts, and enough beautiful Argentines to keep you busy all day. Try to find a coveted spot on one of the pools' crowded islands, and swim your drinks out there for a relaxing afternoon in the sun. You may want to carry in your own refreshments, as the lines become long during the day.
