Calle Museo Caminito, Buenos Aires

See street art come to life at Calle Museo Caminito, a traditional alley that doubles as an open-air museum. Created by local artist Benito Quinquela Martin in the 1950s, the art project breathed life into a run-down part of town, transforming it into one of the city's most iconic spots. Appreciate the brightly colored houses and intricate paintings, which line the alleyway like a patchwork quilt. Tango lovers can share a passionate dance in the alley--this is where the famous Caminito tango was born.

  • The neighborhood is quite simple, but the space that receives tourists is very cozy. The houses are a colorful charm and there are several cafes and restaurants around, some of them with music and of course, tango. There are many souvenir shops where I enjoyed buying. I preferred the little road as a place to buy than the Palermo fair or the fair of San Telmo. There I also made my photo in the Bank with Mafalda.

  • One of the main sights, many tourists, bars and shops of souvenirs. It's a historic site because it is in an area where the city of Bsas was born. Enjoy and visit the Caminito and the stadium of the Mouth in the same tour, because they are very close.

  • Worth it to go there. The access is not so easy, it is necessary to go by bus or with uber. The place is very nice. But how is very touristy, the prices are high.

Where to stay in Buenos Aires

Buenos Aires offers an impressive selection of budget-friendly and mid-range lodgings, as well as pricier, more luxurious options for visitors who don't mind splashing out. Good rooms are scattered across town, but your best bet for economical hostels remains San Telmo, a neighborhood on the edge of downtown. For boutique establishments and international five-star hotels, head to Palermo, Recoleta, or Puerto Madero, upscale neighborhoods drawing the majority of foreign visitors.
