South of downtown Buenos Aires, by the port, the working-class enclave of La Boca has a strong Italian flavor and plenty of artistic flair.
The barrio is strongly linked to the history of the tango, and it’s also home to one of the world’s major football teams, the Boca Juniors.
The essence of La Boca can be found in Caminito, the brightly colored pedestrian street lined with painted tin houses and flaunting locally created art at every turn.
La Boca is south of downtown Buenos Aires, clustered around the port at the mouth of the River Riachuelo.
The best way to visit is by tour or taxi.
