When you visit Buenos Aires, you can’t miss one of the most colorful and authentic neighborhoods (or ‘barrio’s) of Buenos Aires, close to the old port named “La Boca”. Many people call it a tourist trap and dangerous(at night)…. I took my camera, had fun and enjoyed this lovely barrio without any problems. The blue metro line C can bring you close to La Boca,just get off at “San Juan”. I stayed in San Telmo, so…I decided to go by foot to the southern located Barrio La Boca. At  the Av. San Juan 350 you can visit Museo de Arte Moderno de Buenos Aires (MAMBA), no entry fee on tuesdays. After checking out this museum, go into the Defensa street and you will notice Museo Histórico Nacional  which is worth a visit(free on wednesdays) on the border of Parque Lezama.

Cross the Av. Martin Garcia and go in to Irala street which will bring you  straight into La Boca. On your left side you can notice the training grounds of Boca Juniors Youth and bit further Boca Juniors’ homeground Estadio Alberto J. Armando or better known as “La Bombonera”. See and smell the atmosphere of La Boca… and who knows…  spontaneously dance A tango ;-).
