This is a must.
Mar 2019 • Friends
Yes it’s in La Boca. Yes it’s a poor area. But the Caminito is worth the time spent and the locals need the tourist dollars from people like us. Just use common sense when you go.
We spoke to locals about getting there and took their advice. You don’t need a tour. Just jump in a taxi (eg ARP 120-150 from Plaza de Mayo) they’re cheap, and get dropped off IN the Caminito so you don’t need to walk there.
Enjoy the colour, the vibe and some genuinely nice souvenirs amongst the inevitable tacky that you get everywhere. Finish up with a beer and ask the cafe staff to ring for a taxi for you at the end of the visit.

Colourful Caminito - touristy but worth a look
Oct 2018 • Couples
Every major city has one - a bright, vibrant area to showcase aspects of its culture which also attracts tourists. Caminito is in the suburb of La Boca and you'll be bombarded by colour and noise. It's vibrant, very colourful and interesting with its array of streets and alleys full of shops, restaurants and cafes, Tango dancers, and market stalls selling clothing, shoes and souvenirs. It's really for the tourists with some parts just plain tacky but that adds the appeal and vibrancy of the area.

You can lunch at a restaurant on the street and be entertained by Tango dancers, even dress up and be photographed as a Tango dancer. The old cobble stones and railway lines from another time are still there.

Caminito (Spanish for street or laneway) is supposed to have inspired the famous tango Caminito in 1926. La Boca is the old industrial area of Buenos Aires which was home to the Italian immigrants in the late 19th century. They worked in the nearby docks and used left over paint for the outside of their homes resulting in a riot of colour.

The area became an eyesore in the 1950's and was revived in the 1960's/70's by local yet renowned Argentine artist Quinquela Martín. He painted the buildings with vibrant pastel colours reminiscent of the original colours which eventually brought the area back to life.

It’s worth a visit and is open most todays. You can spend hours walking the streets, being entertained by street musicians and looking at the shops. However check opening times as most of the stalls were packing up by 3pm. Avoid going into the back streets - some parts looked seedy and certainly uninviting.

Run away! It is a trap!
Sep 2018 • Couples
This is one of the traps to tourists, like, for example, Pelourinho at Salvador in Brazil. It is simply an open air slum, pretending to be a cool tourist site. Prices are high, attendants are not trainned and the atractions are typical from a poor neighbourhood trying to convince the less warned. Forget it!
