Although I expected a little more from this, I liked it. It is rather small, but thanks to the shops, you can spend a whole day here. Food isn't that expensive, neither are souvenirs. The colors on the houses and trees, the tango dancers: it all makes you happy! Just don't leave the touristic part, you never know what can... More

It took us more than an hour and 180 pesos in taxi to get to caminito, it is just a picturesque street with lots of restaurants with tango and other typical dances and little stores that sell souvenirs. The worst part was that we entered a restaurant for a cold drink and some empanadas, and suddenly we saw a group... More

This was by far the most touristy place we visited in Buenos Aires. It was perfect for us as it was our last day in Buesnos Aires and we were looking for souvenirs. They had a ton of souvenir shops, all of which were priced the same. We stopped at a little cafe to have a snack of choripan and... More

the most touristical place of BsAs, but just a "must view" where you have to be very carefull about all kind of thieves, from the guys in the crowd to the shop sellers.

While the street itself is beautifully colourful and completely bizarre, you're in tourist heaven or hell here. If you need some overpriced empanadas or a keyring with 'I Love BA' on it, you're in the right place - but as a little insight into Boca and a nice place to potter about for an hour, this does the trick.

We are in BA for our first time, and I had Camanito on our must-do list. In hindsight I wish we would have skipped it- it's location is far away and inconvenient, the area is very small and obnoxiously geared to tourists, and the surrounding areas are sketchy and feel unsafe at times. It may have been authentic in the... More

During my 5 month stay in Buenos Aires I went to Caminito some 3 times. It is a considerably small place, and for me, a few hours there would have sufficed. Basically it's a couple of blocks wide with colourfully painted houses (they say prostitutes would do that to signal to seaman reaching the port where they worked), a few... More

Don't bother going there. It's a long way. Nothing worth seeing. Lots of tourist trap restaurants trying to cheat you. Don't waste your time

This is a beautiful part of Buenos Aires, unique in the world. Plenty of restaurants and souvenir shops. I would like to see more of it and explore beyond the tourist street but as soon as you reach the end of Caminito street you start to feel unsafe and surrounded by strange characters.

This may have at one point been "the real deal," but it struck me as being a photo opp for tourists. The friend with whom I was travelling loved it however!
