La Boca, Buenos Aires

La Boca is the most colorful barrio in Buenos Aires. And the color extends beyond brightly tinted tin-roof buildings. Stroll the short yet vibrant Caminito Street, a pedestrian walkway cum outdoor museum. Observe artists. Take in a free tango show. Walk a few blocks to La Bombonera and, if your trip coincides with a Boca Juniors match, take in the "color" both in and out of the stadium.
Getting There
La Boca is sandwiched between Au. 25 de Mayo, Au. 9 de Julio and Au. Buenos Aires - La Plata and situated on the waterfront. Calle Caminito is the most colorful street in the barrio. Boca Juniors Stadium is located at Brandsen 805. Colectivos or city buses 20, 25, 29, 33, 46, 53, 64, and 152 stop in La Boca. The nearest subte station is Constitución on the C line.
Getting Around
The self-guided walking tour assembled by the City of Buenos Aires provides a brief description of the main sights in La Boca.
Things to Keep in Mind
It is best to avoid La Boca after dark. Calle Caminito is best visited on the weekend when the street is lined with artisans and tango performers.
