It was magical, may people said it was a bad area, to be careful, but Argentinians are very smart and want to be nice to all tourist. it was so nice to walk and see all this great artist showing their painting and art, just perfect location for creativity. I also walked far away to the port and I saw many old boats loading and looking at all the Argentinians, being fresh saying " piropos" this is an Argentinean tradition to say things to girls, some are fresh but for the more part very friendly. girls just ignore them if you are a feminist. Just enjoy the magical city of Buenos Aires!!

First time in cam into is fun amazing to see colours of all shades and hues ..like the left over colours...used together randomly..all the tourist traps tango cafés stalls selling souvenirs if you are in a mood to do the tourist thing this is the place...of course some lanes are lonely so do not stray away from the tourist area..looks good in the day not so sure whether it is safe at night..great for some good tourist backdrop pictures..

What you will get to see around the place are Admiral William Brown, who was the founder of Argentine Navy, Caminito, which is a set of lit with bright colors and tango cafes. You could not ignore the presence of cops around the place who are only present till the daylight is on since the place is restricted for entrance once it gets dark so as I m told by the guide, then there is also the famous 'Boca Juniors' soccer stadium known for its star player maradonna. You have to give that the place has a different appeal and even may not be that popular in security with tourists, it is not without its share of visitors

No doubt a very cool hang out spot for the young at heart. Great tourist trap with cool and interesting buys. Grab a beer or glass of wine and enjoy some of the tango shows at the local... Building and architecture here is great. A history lesson for sure

Caminito was overestimated by me. I got there by daylight because all of the warnings from its dangerous neighborhood "Boca". I had no problem regarding it, but the place is small, crowded and loud. It's a good place to spend the afternoon together with your friends in one of the many restaurants, to buy overpriced gifts, to visit some art expositions and to appreciate the view of Riachuelo River. But be sure that is exactly what you want before you get there.
