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.

    Go to Caminito is witness the true local culture, a wonderful experience, we went by taxi, I saw no need to hire tour, the souviniers are cheaper than in the Center, the only thing I didn't like was the insistence of the tango and "maradona" wanting to take Photo, exhausting and expensive, but the rest we had the opportunity to meet a beautiful culture and we go up to the stage of Boca Junior who is pretty close, local residents have shown us the street safer for transitarmos, walked about two blocks away. Is very worthwhile.

    Beautiful, scenic spot, which reflects much history, there are many restaurants and shops to buy crafts... There are many artists that you can take photos.

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.
