We went here on a Sunday morning, trying to escape the hustle and bustle of BA. There were a few others doing the same but by mid-day the vendors showed up and the place really came alive. There were no walking paths through the Ecological Park but a great walkway that bordered the park. This will probably become a Sunday... More

Good place for a walk about away from the downtown madness. Nice restaurants and places to stop for a drink. There are a couple of old sailing ships open to the public. I think the admission was less than $1.00 and was a most interesting stop.

When in Buenos Aires Puerto Madero consists a welcoming different "break" from the more typical porteno quarters. Just go for a stroll and have lunch at one of the interesting restaurants close by the river. Of course, some might find the colour of the river water less appealing, but it's a part of what makes this place unique.

This is one of BA's newer parts of town. It's very clean and safe and has nice views of the water. Not much else to do but walk the boardwalk or eat at restaurants (which include a TGI Fridays...blegh). Good parillas here tho!

The service was fine but the steaks were not as good as was expected, given its reputation. Quite pricey. We like some of the other restaurants better and it is a very attractive spot to visit and walk around by the water.

Great places to eat with a nice view and walkable location. No need to spend a lot of time there, not much shopping or other attractions. Surprised there wasn't an ice cream shop?

That's right, if you're looking to get away from the hustle and bustle - head on over to Puerto Madero - great restaurants and a lovely cycle or walk around the eco-logical reserve. And, here's an interesting fact - the plant and tree life are all naturally grown - not one thing was planted. The nutrients from the concrete and... More

Puerto Modero If you’re on a short visit to BsAs skip this one. Eat some beef, go to Cafeteria Ideal and learn a little tango. This is a second level attraction. But visit this area at meal time and let it do double duty. The area is worth a visit only if you’ve been in town for a while and... More
