La Boca, Buenos Aires
(3/5 based on 3,400+ reviews on the web)
Home to the famous Caminito alleyway gallery and La Bombonera football stadium, La Boca has a reputation forged on two major tourist attractions. Make your way straight to Caminito and appreciate the dazzling colors of the buildings around you, then head to the stadium for a behind-the-scenes tour. Apart from those two attractions, you'll struggle to find much else of interest in the largely industrial neighborhood. Visit during the day, as the area has a seedy reputation at night. Put La Boca into our Buenos Aires trip itinerary builder to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Buenos Aires.
