Caminito, La Boca

There are certain tourist spots that are a must, but not somewhere one would return to over and over. Caminito in La Boca is one of those places – it was really fun to see the first time, it was fine to see the second time (last year when a Norwegian friend was visiting) and then just OK this time, when I went with some friends from Ecuador who were visiting. La Boca is one of the 48 neighbourhoods of Buenos Aires and is located in the south-east part of the city; to me it always seems a little remote from where I usually hang out, and it was especially so when we were returning during rush hour. (You can get there easily on the 152 bus.) It is of course maybe most famous for being the home of the football team Boca Juniors, and their stadium La Bombonera.

Caminito is a pedestrian street in La Boca with colorful houses, souvenir shops, restaurants and tango shows. It is cute but definitely not my favorite part of the city, I don’t even think it would be on my top ten touristy things to do in Buenos Aires. But still, always nice to just hang out being a tourist.
