"La Boca" La Boca District Tip by sumit_b

La Boca District, Buenos Aires: 101 reviews and 197 photos


La Boca is where all the artistry is concentrated. The colorful houses were painted by poor immigrants who used any paint that they could find. The area has become more touristy now. You will find performers in the streets and you also get to pose with tango dancers. Safe area during day, not so at night (or so I have been told).

Directions: It's a pintoresque neighborhood in Buenos Aires
