This place has an Argentinian spirit that you won't find anywhere so easily. Of course it is on purpose, but you still you get enchanted by the tango's dancing and singing in the 'calle'.

Not a regular place you find everywhere. Worth the visit, but just once. You can find some local artifacts to buy and take as souvenirs, but definitely it is not the kind of place you wish to return. Visit it on a sunny day and take some beers in one of the local bars available in order to feel the... More

This little area is very artistic. Has lots of painting selling hence i bought one no matter how much is it, able to nego a bit. Beyond the streets, you can see colourful walls and all the figurines up on the building looking down over the balcony. Tango dancers being hired are all around the street just outside the resturant... More

An colorful area done for the Tourist... but not only.. Caminito is part of the Boca History, the history of the immigrant which came to Argentina. The struggles and way of life.... You must see beyond the colorful walls and understand what it is all about. It is interesting, you can get lot´s of photos, some souvenirs, a quick bite...... More

The multiple story houses are multi-coloured and made of sheets of corrugated iron. Nice little street to stroll down. They have an awesome building with life-size figurines looking down over the balcony at you. People dance on the street and there a few restaurants and cafes. Nice place to take pictures. Glad we stopped there.

As noted by the other reviewers, the area known as Caminito (little street), exemplifies a typical GAT trap. The original homes, built out of wood and corrugated steel, are about 2- stories high, contained a generation of immigrants, similar to the Lower East Side of Manhattan. Unfortunately, the little that is left to see hides under a layer of gift... More

Once you are in BA you have to go to see El Caminito!!! Best part of a town so far. Live music, dancers on a street, good souvenir shops and perfect pace to buy silver (plata)

As much as a tourist trap this place is I cannot conceive in my mind coming to BsAs just to skip Caminito. The place has picturesque houses with colourful façades, some restaurants with Tango shows and plenty of souvenir shops with reasonable prices ( half the prices I found in Recoleta anyhow). We didn't feel that unsafe but came in... More
