Puerto Madero is the newest neighborhood in Buenos Aires. Right on the river, this is a neighborhood full of upscale restaurants, bistros and cafes that will have a bit higher price tag. It's also a lovely place to walk around and enjoy a less crowded, greener neighborhood. The large, white, modern bridge (Puente de la Mujer) is a must, but... More

Really disliked Puerto Madero even though locals kept recommending the neighborhood to us. Felt like countless other similar redevelopment projects around the world and very overpriced and mediorcre restaurants.

Common wisdom will indicate that Puerto Madero (PM) is a must visit while in Buenos Aires (BA) and I agree but do not expect anything special. It was the old main port of BA and it is worth walking around the 4 sections that will take you about 2 hours and take a look a the old structures (buildings and... More

Buenos Aires is a very beautiful city, you have wherever you go good food, good ways of going around,,like subways, colectivos(small busses),etc.etc. its a very vibrant city, it depends on the taste of the individual. I love the architecture of the old houses and palaces, the cultural part,like the Theater Colon, and so many others, just the little stores in... More

Puerto Madero is a really pleasant district of Buenos Aires - a great place to go for lunch or dinner as there are many really excellent restaurants and cafes there. Formerly a port industrial zone, the former warehouses have been well renovated and blend with modern buildings.

It's really a beautiful place for evening/morning walk. Entire area surrounding to river is around 3-4 KMs with some nice attractions around it and as well in the river. There are multiple restaurants available around this area too.

Modern, clean, and relaxing, but not why I came to Buenos Aires. I did enjoy the restaurant Johnny Be Good, however.

This is a beautiful river area with a walkway on both sides and the Women's Bridge in between. Check out the higher end restaurants, the university, entertainment, and art galleries,

If there are people with a lot of money, they are living there. Its a place full of luxury building, luxury stores and great restaurant. Everything surrounded by the Rio de La Plata (port of Buenos Aires). You can't miss it. Even if you do not want to spend a lot of money, at least go there for a coffee.... More

Staying in Puerto Madero

Neighborhood Profile
Puerto Madero
From its refurbished red brick buildings and port cranes to its modern skyscrapers and luxurious apartment buildings, Puerto Madero is the perfect combination of old and new. The river provides a quiet, relaxing atmosphere that contrasts with the hustle and bustle of heavy traffic just blocks away. Across the river, flanked by skyscrapers, are beautiful parks and quiet streets that make this neighborhood a unique destination in a city as busy as Buenos Aires. The restaurants, bars, and nightclubs on the docks make it a prime spot for nights out and have come to symbolize this area. Puerto Madero is even more striking after dark, when the lights from the docks and skyscrapers glow against the night sky.
