La Boca is famous for the Tango, which you'll find on El Caminito, the main pedestrian street. There's some shopping and lots of sidewalk restaurants. The houses are brilliantly colored which tells you right away that this place likes to party.

La Boca may feel a bit Disney-ish at times, what with decked-out tango dancers offering to take a picture with you (for a small fee, of course), but the colorful scenery and warm atmosphere will charm you. Have a seat at one of the many cafes or restaurants for empanadas and a beer and watch a tango or chacarera performance. I had a lovely time wandering around the streets, chatting with performers and musicians about their work.Recommended for:

La Boca is a working-class neighborhood, but its colorful buildings, street tango and good restaurants make it a place to visit while you are in BA… Stick to the main street/area (to be on a safe side).Recommended for:

For football(soccer) fans, a must. If you can't get to a game (use a reliable concierge service if you want to go), then day tours of the stadium are available. Boca's arch-rival, River Plate is closer to the apartment in Nunez. River's games are also very popular too.
