This is the most colorful quarter I have ever seen. All building are painted with colors. This is also place to go if you want to see dance tango on the street. Very tourintic though. Take UBER to get there, it would bot cost you...More
Lots of shops catering to sightseers. Area is noted for its professional pickpockets, so be careful. The buildings are brightly coloured, in tune with the historic period, when the poor lived in the neighborhood, and used left over paint, I believe from painting ships.
Boca has a pretty bad reputation, but if you visit during the daylight there are a ton of tourists there and we felt extremely safe. You have to go here if you are taking a trip to BA, but it is VERY much built up...More
I have to admit, when I arrived I was a little disappointed. The main attraction is the “caminito” which is crowded by tourists and people trying to sell things to you. Apart from that, the area is nice and colorful and you can get some...More
So we visited La Boca which was a must see, beautiful coloured buildings and lots of markets. Be weary of the first store as you enter in and do not carry dollars as we were shortchanged and robbed by the Argentinan sales consultants there. It...More
The Boca area is definitely one to see . It has colourful houses, cafes, restaurants and tango dancers on the street. We spent just over an hour here which was enough. But thoroughly enjoyed the experience And Boca Juniors souvenirs are everywhere
As soon as you arrive to the barrio la boca you will see a few men and woman dressed with the typical tango outfits. This is the worst scam ever and I don't appreciate them trying to get $30 US dollars (each person) for taking...More
I started here a trip through South America, in the southern part, where people talk about che and eat good meat. but also in this part tango is danced. It is really beautiful to see those sensual dances with those characteristic clothes of that time,...More
We went there as part of out tour, at 10:30 am and left after less than an hour. Nobody seems to actually live in those houses, they are all made up for the tourists to gawk at. We thought at first that it might get...More
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.
