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.

  • There are people who like it, but as I live in SP, I found very take a tourist because there is only two blocks away, where cafes, restaurants, however there is a slum revitalized, not just those who like to see the slums are people of the world first.

  • Another point that a tourist can not pass long is "Caminito", in that famous photo corner and walk through the two streets that form them... but in reality these two streets are made expressly (very nice) to attract tourism, so the pictures will be excellent! He tried the tourist? Lousy! Beware of the atrae-clientes that promise - for example - 1 litre of beer to certain price, when you put it on the table, is that "by mistake" brought you a beer 650 ml... they charge 20% extra for service (poor service). In general the provider of tourist services in Buenos Aires lack much sense of "Customer service". Just walk around those 2 streets, enjoy your stay and can withstand abuse that there "cater" to travelers. Take care of tickets that give (check the serial number before delivering it) and that receive it as "false" or "without change" is the same... There are many counterfeit circulating in BA. I can not close my comment without telling them that in spite of all that: go to "Caminito" to take the photo and "stating that they were visiting so beautiful city". But hopefully the Argentinos-atiende-turistas, improve its quality of service and attention.

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.
