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.
I have never been so excited to attend a football game till I scored a ticket to this prestigious club game. It really was an experience you'd never be able to get anywhere else as the energy from the fans is nonstop throughout the whole game and the loyalty shows all along the streets.
So important but in a dangerous place! Very nice! I love the BENITO CHINCHELLA MARTIN art but, specially LA BOCA is not a safe place to go. So manny thiefs and robberys happenned there... If You go please don´t take with You so much money, wallets, mobile, cameras and PASSPORT!!!

1. The online tickets were cheap...around $13...
Wonderful experience at Encuentro Nativo! Delicious food accompanied by traditional live shows such as tango and folklore, shout outs to Exequiel for serving us while visiting this incredible place!
Increíble experiencia en Encuentro Nativo! Deliciosa comida acompaña de tango y folklore shows en vivo cada 5’ mins. Gracias a Exequiel por atendernos mientras estábamos visitando este increíble lugar!
We were shown this lovely restaurant by a tour guide initially however were not hungry on that day so we returned by ourselves as wanted to explore further.
You walk past the BBQ man whom I’m sure has a proper Argentinian name and into the lovely garden. It’s quaint with cool water being finely sprayed on hot days.
We returned here after one month away travelling other places. We wanted to return to La Bocca because we had such a lovely day there.
It crossed our mind as returning we should perhaps eT in a different restaurant, but we defo chose not too. Why would you when you are served by the nicest, best, look alike Rob Lowe...
It’s away from the crowds of people and the complete tat that is sold at La Boca. A sweet little restaurant frequented by locals; we were the only tourists. Excellent courteous service and a setting with white tablecloths and white cloth napkins. The menu was pretty Italian. Authentic Italian starters like Melanzane Parmigiana with their own twist. Tirimasu was excellent....

Arrived just after 8:30 PM on a Tuesday with no reservation. Lucked out to get the last table for 3 of us. Neat old parrilla in La Boca and you should as suggested take a taxi or UBER for access. Service is good, menu with English, good selection of wines and not served in a pitcher as some sites mention....
