A neighbourhood defined by its immigrant roots, La Boca still maintains this past alive in its streets today. Due to its proximity to the river, the neighbourhood became the preferred settling area for immigrants of a wide variety of origins, who ended up living together in the conventillos. Thus, these houses became a melting pot of different cultures and traditions that birthed creations like tango and lunfardo. Nowadays, this legacy can be seen and felt on Caminito Street, which welcomes visitors with colourful facades, cobblestones, and street artists showcasing their skills. Just like its neighbor San Telmo, La Boca is one of the prime destinations to experience the traditions and customs that originated from the city’s immigrant past and which have shaped its distinct identity.

Fantastic display of Ai Weiwei’s art in a beautiful space. The rooms add atmosphere and provide the subtle background to let art “do its thing”.
It’s a great place to visit for every one, from semi-professional art critic to rebellious teenager without any interest in art.
This was a nice easy walk after visiting Boca Juniors stadium. Lots of places to eat, shop and see. There may be some solicitors when taking pictures of tango dancers. Taxis are easy to come by, but no Ubers were available. I spent about an hour here. I was alone; I wouldn't recommend being here at night by yourself.

Very nice people, don’t get me wrong- but the Casino is missing the opulence and flair that most foreign casinos have. In addition, was in the building more than 20 minutes around the gaming tables- and it was impossible to get a drink. Plenty of people were smoking up clouds as if they were factories....yet no one was drinking? Furthermore,...
This is a typical "bodegon de Buenos Aires", prices are ok, food is excellent, portions are huge, and the place is just great. BUT (there is allways one), you have to book in advance. Is really crowded!
Wonderful home cooked italian in the heart of La Boca. Take a cab there and back and don't mention River Plate Football Club....only Boca Juniors. Otherwise you'll end up wearing dinner. The pasta is fantastic; the atmosphere quaint & homey. The menu has risotto, steaks, fish and other offerings. The wine list isn't particularly large, but has some excellent choices....

This is no fancy or elegant place, but you will leave happy. This is no place for vegans...just meat, one of the best in Buenos Aires. French fries are excellent too. go for bife de chorizo, choripan or lomo sandwich. That's it, excellent value!. Enjoy the neighborhood and also visit the cathedral of football (soccer), just across the street.
We found this classic place by accident during our walk through the Boca district. It really has a nice old-timer feel and offers great pizza. We tried several different sorts and all were really good. The drinks are a bit pricey in comparison with pizza slices.
We loved it so much we paid them a visit again at the end...
