You cannot help but feel happy when you see all the cheerful colours of the houses and shops in this neighborhood. Appeared to be expensive for shopping so mor a place just to go and look at the vibrant colours.
We visited La Boca on the Hop on, hop off bus tour. What a lovely place and so cheerful with its coloured houses and friendly people. A great place for souvenir shopping and relaxing in one of the many restaurants. Definitely not to be missed!

Include this neighborhood in your tour of BA as it is one of the most interesting. People come here for the tango parlors, but there is much more in the cafes and restaurants and the architecture. We bought souvenirs.
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.
