We took a cab from our place to this legendary street, and we weren't disappointed. Full of history, colorful, it's a pleasant walk through Buenos Aires piece of history (aaaaahhh the Tango...). Our advice: go there in the morning when it's not not crowded and avoid weekends.

If you have some spare time in Buenos Aires, dedicate a couple of hours to view this unique area, with a lot of "soul." Be careful, though. Go with someone else, and preferrably before dark.

This was my FAVOURITE part of whole BS. Even more than Puerto Madero, Palermo, or any fancy neighbourhood. Amazing the colours, culture, musicians, tango in the streets, everything! Here you can experience the "Old Buenos Aires" more than in any other part of the city. Do not Hesitate, JUST GO! WARNING: Go there in sunlight, because it can be really... More

It's worth a trip to La Boca to walk this one block street. Tandgo dancers, painters and above all the different colors of the buildings, most of them made with corrugated metal.

This street is in the La Boca area where the Italian immigrants came to work starting in the 1880's. The majority of them came to work at the port. Several murals in the area depict their lives and work. Very colourful buildings, art stands, restaurants and bars. Visiting this area meant a lot to me because one of my grandfathers... More

It is a very typical attraction. Is a good place to look for art. You can talk with the artist and find good pieces. Souvenirs are expensive and restaurant are not good.

Staying in La Boca

Neighbourhood Profile
La Boca
A neighbourhood defined by its immigrant roots, La Boca still maintains this past alive in its streets today. Due to its proximity to the river, the neighbourhood became the preferred settling area for immigrants of a wide variety of origins, who ended up living together in the conventillos. Thus, these houses became a melting pot of different cultures and traditions that birthed creations like tango and lunfardo. Nowadays, this legacy can be seen and felt on Caminito Street, which welcomes visitors with colourful facades, cobblestones, and street artists showcasing their skills. Just like its neighbor San Telmo, La Boca is one of the prime destinations to experience the traditions and customs that originated from the city’s immigrant past and which have shaped its distinct identity.
