A neighbourhood defined by its immigrant roots, La Boca still maintains this past alive in its streets today. Due to its proximity to the river, the neighbourhood became the preferred settling area for immigrants of a wide variety of origins, who ended up living together in the conventillos. Thus, these houses became a melting pot of different cultures and traditions that birthed creations like tango and lunfardo. Nowadays, this legacy can be seen and felt on Caminito Street, which welcomes visitors with colourful facades, cobblestones, and street artists showcasing their skills. Just like its neighbor San Telmo, La Boca is one of the prime destinations to experience the traditions and customs that originated from the city’s immigrant past and which have shaped its distinct identity.
According to the German football magazine "KICKER" (and many football fanatics), La Bombonera is the best stadium in the world.
One would ideally go watch a football match. Nevertheless being there already fills one with so much energy.
Guided tours run daily, almost constantly. One can visit the field, dressing rooms, museum and cafeteria.
If you're a football fan GO.
PROA is a private museum that brings in interesting international post-modern and contemporary artists. The curation is painfully bad at times, but the quality of the work brought in compensates. The museum also boasts a nice rooftop cafe and easy access to nearby Boca's touristy charms.
For the best experience, I'd recommend visiting PROA as soon as it opens. You'll...
Unfriendly Dealers and uninformed Staff in General.
Terrible Gaming Experience, do not recommend it , unless you are incredible bored and have ran-out of activities to do in Buenos Aires, and only if you are a Ludopath that needs a daily fix, otherwise I would not recommend this place under any circumstances.
Food is OK but the ambience is great. If you are in La Boca, do visit this restaurant but not worth the effort if you are coming from other areas.
The steak is juicy and flavorful. Looks like many people ordered the tortilla instead.
Wonderful home cooked italian in the heart of La Boca. Take a cab there and back and don't mention River Plate Football Club....only Boca Juniors. Otherwise you'll end up wearing dinner. The pasta is fantastic; the atmosphere quaint & homey. The menu has risotto, steaks, fish and other offerings. The wine list isn't particularly large, but has some excellent choices....
We found this classic place by accident during our walk through the Boca district. It really has a nice old-timer feel and offers great pizza. We tried several different sorts and all were really good. The drinks are a bit pricey in comparison with pizza slices.
We loved it so much we paid them a visit again at the end...

This is no fancy or elegant place, but you will leave happy. This is no place for vegans...just meat, one of the best in Buenos Aires. French fries are excellent too. go for bife de chorizo, choripan or lomo sandwich. That's it, excellent value!. Enjoy the neighborhood and also visit the cathedral of football (soccer), just across the street.
