Calle Museo Caminito, Buenos Aires

See street art come to life at Calle Museo Caminito, a traditional alley that doubles as an open-air museum. Created by local artist Benito Quinquela Martin in the 1950s, the art project breathed life into a run-down part of town, transforming it into one of the city's most iconic spots. Appreciate the brightly colored houses and intricate paintings, which line the alleyway like a patchwork quilt. Tango lovers can share a passionate dance in the alley--this is where the famous Caminito tango was born.

  • The forced alternative is which are in Buenos Aires. Caminito offers culture, art, history and gastronomy. All in a single Street. Very quaint and cozy. In lunch schedule is full and the step is a little difficult. You must be careful with the robbers.

  • La Boca is one of these names who reason in the minds of many travelers. Unfortunately the place isn't up to its reputation. You know coming it is very small, in the end it's really just a street 150 m very pretty and two streets filled with tourist trap. The rest of the neighborhood is much less colorful and especially in poor condition. Anyway it's far from being a must.

  • I went to visit Caminito, and as always lots of people in stores and on the street. This time the houses are cute, colorful, more tidy, Gave a good tidy houses, vastly improved. Because last time I was in the Caminito in January 2014, they were very ugly.

Where to stay in Buenos Aires

Buenos Aires offers an impressive selection of budget-friendly and mid-range lodgings, as well as pricier, more luxurious options for visitors who don't mind splashing out. Good rooms are scattered across town, but your best bet for economical hostels remains San Telmo, a neighborhood on the edge of downtown. For boutique establishments and international five-star hotels, head to Palermo, Recoleta, or Puerto Madero, upscale neighborhoods drawing the majority of foreign visitors.
