The Caminito (pedestrian area) and the adjacent streets in the district of La Boca are a city in the city. Although the district is 100% designed for tourism with its innumerable localities, souvenir shops and tango couples, it is incredibly fun to soak up the hustle and bustle - it took us well over three hours.
The nearest Subte station is "Plaza Constitución". So if you do not want to invest the taxi money or if you want to use a bit more complicated bus service, you have to invest a good 30 minutes (2.7 km) on foot.
The visit is worthwhile in any case. Further information can also be found in the corresponding Wiki (de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caminito)
Have fun discovering.

Compared to the neighboring district of San Telmo extremely touristy, the house facades decorated with dolls are partly reminiscent of funfair ghost trains and the Tango Argentino offered at every pub seemed far less authentic than the one at Plaza Dorrego in San Telmo. Nevertheless, the Caminito with its colorful corrugated iron facades is a must-see.
