La Boca

La Boca is a barrio located in southeast Buenos Aires and is close to the city’s port. This is a popular tourist destination well known for its colourful houses and pedestrian cobbled streets, Caminito, which is where tango artists perform and tango-memorabilia shops scattered all over the area. This area is also bustling with theatres, cafes and restaurants as well as Italian taverns. Take precautions when you go outside this area because it is surrounded by a fairly-poor neighbourhood known for regular occurrences of petty crimes.
