La Boca is a place of contradiction.
It is something like a car crash! You know there could be something there you don’t really want or need to see but you can’t help but slow down and take in the whole scene.
We politely declined any tourist trap offers and instead spent our time seeing the rough beauty behind the veil of La Boca. I have read reviews advising to not waste time visiting the area but I would have regretted not making the effort.
