Because it is the craziest football game of the year- the two biggest rivals in BA square off for bragging rights- every fan is angry and intense- afterwards is always a good party with whichever team wins!
The neighbourhood in the port area from which Boca Juniors derive their name was the point of arrival for the countless numbers of immigrants who came to Argentina, particularly Italians. There is an artists fair as well as Italian cantinas to relax in. Go for the beautiful coloured houses and because this is where Maradona grew up.
Barrio La Boca
Why, you may ask? Well, the reason is simple.
When Boca clash with River at La Bombonera, the usual fireworks associated with Argentinian football quickly turn to explosions, both metaphorically and non-metaphorically speaking.
Someone once said, "To understand the passion, art and culture of this beautiful city, visit La Bombonera." That person couldn't have been closer to the truth.
Go and see a football match at Boca Juniors. Go on a tour with an travel agency. It's worth it (even if you wouldn't go and watch live football at home) to see the wild enthusiasm of the fans.
Alberto J. Armando Stadium, Brandsen 805, Capital Federal
This is a good option if you want to to see a football match while in Buenos Aires. It includes transfers to and from your hotel plus tickets to the match for about US$35. Probably more expensive than if you arrange it yourself, but very easy if you don't have much time and probably safer than making your way to Boca on your own or getting out to the River Plate Stadium which is quite far from the centre.
