La Boca, Buenos Aires

La Boca, Buenos Aires
La Boca, Buenos Aires

La Boca is one of Buenos Aires’ 48 neighborhoods. It’s known for it’s colorful building and tango. It’s actually really beautiful and a top tourist destination. During our tour, we only really went down Caminito street, which is the heart and soul of La Boca. But we also had time to venture down to the docs to see the port and some amazing colored cobblestone.

Fun Fact: when the city was being build and developed, they would use parts of old ships to build their homes.

One thing to keep in mind is the La Boca is a relatively poor and unsafe neighborhood. We went with a tour guide and I’m glad we did because there are only a handful of streets that are worth seeing and are safe for tourists.

(for example, never cross the train tracks!)
