Home to the famous Caminito alleyway gallery and La Bombonera football stadium, La Boca has a reputation forged on two major tourist attractions. Make your way straight to Caminito and appreciate the dazzling colors of the buildings around you, then head to the stadium for a behind-the-scenes tour. Apart from those two attractions, you'll struggle to find much else of interest in the largely industrial neighborhood. Visit during the day, as the area has a seedy reputation at night. Use our Buenos Aires day trip tool to arrange your visit to La Boca and other attractions in Buenos Aires.

  • It's a place away from the central region of Buenos aires, have your charm, colorful houses, tango dancers (even if you cover even for photo), souvenir shops, la bombonera Stadium, football shops, street performers, at least once must visit from the second time in Buenos aires can dispense with the visit for sure.

  • I was with my family in Buenos Aires in early November of 2017 and we meet the La Boca neighborhood (or Republic of La Boca) and the stadium of Boca Juniors. The neighborhood seems quiet (by day), but no more. The stadium is more interesting and worth giving an entry (payable on the spot and not cheap). Worth a few pictures and visit the souvenir shops next to the sports stadium. It is not time-consuming.

  • Walk the streets of La Boca is a very beautiful, visit experience the tenements and to experience the places where they lived the Italian immigrants, mostly. The Quinquela Martín Museum is highly recommended and a symbolic amount of money, paid to aid maintenance. To take a coffee... coffee Rona, one of the notable cafes of Buenos Aires. And for lunch... Quique roundabout, it is extraordinary! Sandwich sausage or rump, very simple and delicious!

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.
