Part of my bike tour, beautiful area to walk/bike etc. Good museums and history here. There are three schooners they have turned into museums that are basically free, and it is a good place to take photos of the river and modern BA.

I have family in BsAs, but still, I travel there as a tourist. The first time I visited Puerto Madero, in 2002, it was a beautiful place, with a great atmosphere. Well conserved, full of flowers and light. All the best restaurants were there. But now, 13 years later, the place deteriorated a bit, all the good and new restaurants... More

The restored docks of Puerto Madero is a lively area full of bars and restaurants. It has a number of interesting vintage ships that can be visited for a modest entry fee. Beyond that is an ecological reserve much favoured by local people for walking, running and cycling. In between the two is pedestrianised area that contains an assortment of... More

Peurto Madeira was boring when we went on a Tuesday night. Perhaps it is more exciting on the weekend. Didn't eat there so not sure of the restaurants. Nice bridge though. Otherwise I would not recommend an area to go to.

We wandered down Puerto Madero, enjoying the view of the water. The entire area is mostly restaurants, and since we weren't ready to eat, there wasn't much more to do than enjoy the view. But at night, with the many culinary choices, it's a great place to hang out and enjoy.

We had dinner here as we drove around the Puerto Madero area. This is a real nice restaurant by the river. The service is excellent and the food is great. Select the tables by the river for a nice view.

Puerto Madero is the newest neirborhood in BA. It has an amazing view of the canal, the tallest buildings in the city and great restaurants too.

Walked from one end to another and viewed the various sites along the way: Puerto Cristal building, several restaurants and bars and the many moored boats, barges and sailboats, a gleaming view across the river and of course the usual bikers, joggers and walkers all enjoying the scenery. Of course there is the rotating footbridge, the Puente de la Mujer... 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.
