Puerto madero is next to the old docks of buenos Aires. The place is beautiful and gets a real life and nice atmosphere in the evening, when the sun gets down. You can find many super nice restaurant there and bars. It is a good place for the dinner.

Puerto Madero is worth visiting. Ideal for a walk on a nice day. Great for lunch or dinner, plenty of options, particularly known for upscale restaurants but there is also a wide variety of mid-priced places. If you are up to either museums and/or ships do not hesitate to visit the Fortabat Collection and the Fragata Sarmiento.

We really enjoyed strolling along the waterways and taking picture after picture, it is spectacular at night. Our only complaint was the legion of zombies looking for Pokemon.

Really nice! I recommend to go here on a sunday or saturday at lunchtime, spend some time walking and seeing some maritime attractions , and then eat in some of the delicious restaurants. It's better when it's sunny, and I don't recommend going there at rainy days, unless you only want to go to restaurants.

This is THE place to go when thw weather is nice and you feel like strolling around the city by the river. Plenty of cafés and restaurants, as well as small seats by the river to just sit and watch the people go by.

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.
