This colorful part of town has some great shopping and some impressive murals of art. You can stop and take your picture with tango dancers or capture the giant figures that dot the second story of some of the buildings.

This little place is kind of hidden in an area which looks old and run down. It is better to go maybe later in the evening of you want it to be brimming. I went on a Wedmesday at around 1pm and it was quite empty. It is very beautiful with colourful houses and people playing tango music.

Yes its touristy but it shows a great part of the culture and we thought it was worth the visit. Do not walk to it, take a bus as the area surrounding it is not safe but enjoy ur walk around the colourful houses, tango dancers and little shops.

I've always dreamed of going to Buenos Aires, and while the city itself was phenominally romantic and grand, La Boca underwhelmed me. Being from Florida, I know tacky tourist traps when I am in one. This one was on par with Kissimmee or Key West. There is little historical- just a technicolor tourist trap of cheap souvenirs and overpriced restaurants.... More

A very touristy area but worth the time. With a little imagination you can see the way the harbor area once was (and in the surrounding neighborhood, more so). It is charming and even if you don't care about history, it is colorful and plenty of things to see without spending a cent!

I went here expecting a well preserved area, but found it to be small and not well preserved. Lots of work is needed by the authorities here to get the neighborhood to look as it once were. Arts, food and live shows are good, thou. Go inside a bar and spend some time hearing Tango and eating.

This is a beautiful place to visit in "La Boca", painted houses, art and tango surround you and make you feel in a special atmosphere. Just be a little careful as there are many tourists and also some thieves

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.
