No reviews, be the first!

Sprawled along the abandoned port of the Riachuelo River in the south of Buenos Aires, the neighborhood – or barrio – of La Boca is a pocket of old age charm, once the first stop-off for European settlers in Argentina and now a popular haunt of bohemian artists, tango dancers and the city’s youth.

While widely regarded as one of the city’s most dangerous districts, perhaps thanks to its largely poor population, a number of the most-visited streets are well policed and extremely popular with tourists looking for a taste of a lesser-seen Buenos Aires.
