See the real Boca, meet the real people living there and make a difference with socially responsible tourism!

La Boca is, without a doubt, one of the most visited tourist destinations of Buenos Aires and Caminito, its emblematic street, is one of the most famous images of the city. The traditional visits of this area tend to last no longer than half an hour and concentrate mostly on this colorful and brief pedestrian street. Thus very few travelers manage to understand the real essence of La Boca and discover the world which is hidden behind what to the inhabitants is merely tourist scenery.

This responsible tour proposes to explore the different faces of this neighborhood, mainly, to get to know the people who live here and their social, cultural and environmental projects. The route of “La Boca beyond Caminito…” includes the traditional destinations and invites the visitor to go one step further and get involved with its people and institutions, in order to learn about its rich history, understand the socio-economic situation of the place and exchange experiences with locals.

Find out what’s behind Caminito and take your own image of La Boca home with you.

Our guides are specially trained to pass on their knowledge of the history and socio-economic reality of the city and act as “interpreters” between the visitors and local communities. They will always promote sensitivity and respect in the meetings and exchanges.
