There are certain places to avoid, even if you are a New Yoker Apr 08, 2012
As a seasoned city dweller, between NY and DC, I can be comfy and prepared in many large cities. However, there are still certain places to avoid in BA. La Boca and the Caminito (short walk) are nice touristy traps for the day, but you need to be well on your way before the sun sets and don't consider straying far from the 4 blocks of the Caminito.

When taking the Colonia Express ferry to Uruguay, there are only 2 bus stops right in front, otherwise, take a taxi. It's in a very seedy area under an overpass.

Even to get to the Manzana de las Luces (the Block of Lights), it may really not be safe at night. There are several small streets that join larger streets in BA and those can be suspiciously dark and lonely at late or in the early morning hours, so stick to major streets or carry your mace (bu avoiding rather than confronting trouble is always best).
