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.
