Colourful La Boca
Buenos Aires at its most vital. La Boca is the historic neighbourhood the city turns to when describing its identity: part tough, working class machismo, part sultry and fun loving. Shady looking characters inhabit the side alleys that run down from the main drag of cute, multicoloured buildings. Friendly locals welcome you in the bars, while riper sorts populate some of the pavements late at night. La Boca is BA at its most ribald and intense. And be there on a soccer match day and you’ll see the neighbourhood at its fervid, feverish best.
