    When you reach the neighborhood of La Boca, you arrive in the city’s most colorful neighborhood. Bright paint, from red to blue and green, blanket the homes and complexes of the barrio. Artists, writers, and dancers take their creativity to the streets, decorating the patios and balconies overlooking the avenues. Tango dancers perform on the corners providing more than a show, but an experience. The Caminito Street Museum has acted as an open-air gallery since the late 1950s. Stalls line the avenue with locals offering quality handcrafted statues and cultural icons, bordered by photogenic buildings, and perforated with the clapping footsteps of tango dancers.

    Lake District

    Bariloche acts as a gateway to the Andes Mountains. Once on the National Route 237, you begin your exploration of the Lake District, home to seven lakes and a number of traditional alpine towns. You can see the rushing water of the Limay River.

    The air around the mountainside is crisp and brushed with pine and evergreen trees. On Provincial Route 65, you have an unparalleled view of Traful Lake. The water reaches a depth of 984 feet and stands at an elevation of 3,198 feet. The transparent surface allows you to look deep into the lake to see an underwater forest thriving on the lake’s shores. The clarity of the lake gives it a gemlike quality, and it is set in the crowning majesty of the encompassing landscape.

In the distance, you can see the towering peak of Mount Tronador, standing at 11,411 feet above sea level, and forming a natural boundary between Argentina and its western neighbor of Chile.

    When you reach the base of Ventisquero Negro, the Black Glacier, you can see the striking black color of the ice. A small river connects the Black Glacier to the white ice of the Rio Manos Glacier higher up the mountain. The black ice of the glacier stands out significantly in contrast to the pristine colors of the surrounding ice and snow.
