Calle Museo Caminito, Buenos Aires

Pedro de Mendoza
La Boca
Buenos Aires
Argentina's insider take:

The open-air tchotchke market and boisterous tango zone that operates along the colorful, scimitar-shaped byway known as Caminito is the city's only outdoor museum. Lined with rickety dwellings topped with corrugated metal roofs and painted every color of the rainbow, Caminito is both a cheesy tourist trap and a can't-miss destination, as well as a poignant love letter to La Boca's—and B.A.'s—immigrant past. The name "Caminito" ("little walkway") was lifted from an old tango chestnut whose sad lyrics are enshrined here on a commemorative plaque.

Open Mondays through Fridays 10 am to 6 pm, Saturdays and Sundays 11 am to 6 pm.
