I took an uber from Recoletawhere I stayed in the city, which took approximately 20 minutes and cost $134 (which in the conversion is equivalent to approx. BRL 11).
Right at the entrance to the stadium, there is a small store full of items such as official t-shirts, backpacks and key chains. At first, everything was relatively expensive, but there were some shirts on sale. Keep an eye out for this when you go to see if you can take advantage of any discounts. Inside the store, you will find the ticket office to purchase the entrance ticket for the visit.

How to buy the ticket
Visitor tickets are sold at the ticket office La Bombonera or fur sitebut it is possible to acquire it through our link. It is possible to pay with cash or credit card. Remember that on match days, visits are suspended.
After much thought, I ended up opting for the Visit Express + Museum. In particular, I did not regret the choice, as I am not very passionate about football and, in addition, I wanted to save as much as possible on this trip.
La Bombonera – What was it like to visit?
The museum is very beautiful! Much of it is expository and has two films in separate rooms that run every 20 minutes or so. Going up the stairs, you’ll soon come to a door that leads to the stadium. My vision of him was from behind the goal, as I chose the ticket from Express visit. If you opt for Stadium Tour will undoubtedly have the opportunity to see the countryside better. So it’s up to you to decide the best option.
Is it possible to pay $150 (equivalent to more or less BRL 13) to take a picture on the pitch with the Libertadores Cup. You will be able to take it home revealed with a super cool frame.
When going up, on the third floor, you will find a restaurant. As it was past lunch time, I decided to eat there. I ordered the children’s plate, which was fried chicken nuggets with fries and a small glass of Pepsi, and it cost $180 (so-so BRL 15). Had the option of taking a Boca Juniors themed glass for more $30 (about BRL 2). so stayed $210 (about BRL 18) the meal you can check out in the photo below.
In this restaurant, you accept Real and the quotation in 2015 was from BRL 7 (in 2018it is possible that the quotation is BRL 11), better than the exchange offices I found. So I decided to pay in real.
