Day Tour

La Boca beyond Caminito

Buenos Aires, Argentina | Half-day

Exceptional Experiences

  • Visiting La Boca, including the famous Boca Juniors stadium
  • Discovering the hidden world behind Caminito.
  • Getting involved with its people.
  • Supporting local development initiatives.

 

La Boca is one of the most visited tourist destinations in Buenos Aires. With its cobbled roads, lively ambience and colorful buildings, it is one of the most recognizable parts of the city. Despite this, it remains one of the poorest; a contrast that may be difficult to understand without exploring the neighborhood itself. 

Many visits to La Boca (and its famous street, Caminito) involve wandering down a few of the lanes here, enjoying the street entertainment and perhaps stopping for a pleasant meal. Very few travelers experience the true essence and the people of La Boca, seeing only the the tourist front.

We invite you to explore the different faces of this unique neighborhood, to get to know the people that live here and what life is like in this region. The route La Boca beyond Caminito includes the popular tourist sights and takes one step further to learn about its rich history and the social values and traditions of these people. 

Visit an off-beat local art gallery and enjoy a coffee with community leaders to hear their stories, as well as seeing what makes La Boca such an iconic part of Buenos Aires. The tour will take you through Boca Stadium, home of one of the countries most-fiercely followed football clubs and you'll also have the chance to see and meet local soup kitchen volunteers at work. 

Learn about what lies beyond the tourist sights and take home your own image of La Boca.
