This contrived neighbourhood, which is very close to the Boca Juniors stadium, is not very big. It is centered around two streets lined with low to mid end restaurants catering to people want to catch a meal and enjoy the dancing of tango dancers doing a decent job of showing a little bit of talent. It is mainly terraces which... More

Yes this area is touristy and it does feel that way but I'm still glad I went there. It's worth the visit to see it, take a few photos of the colourful buildings and then there's lots of places to buy souvenirs if you want any and then leave. The area surrounding is a bit dodgy so don't go wandering... More

It's very touristy but I very much enjoyed the area nonetheless. Spent all day walking around, watching the tango dancing, eating and people watching. The colors are wonderful!

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

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

Staying in La Boca

Neighborhood Profile
La Boca
A neighborhood defined by its immigrant roots, La Boca still maintains this past alive in its streets today. Due to its proximity to the river, the neighborhood 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 colorful 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.
