The best and the most richest area of Buenos Area, the port is surrounded by high buildings and a great amount of coffee shops and restaurants ideal to have a late lunch, a calm dinner or only enjoy a drink in the many bars. If you're visiting BA this area is completely different from the rest of the city, it... More

Cool place to walk by and grab a drink in front of the ancient docks. I recommend you to take a nice walk in the National reserve park very closeby

We had a lovely walk along the promenades located in Puerto Madero. You can get there walking when stopping in Metro (Subte) line B, station Amen. If you are lucky you can see the Puente de la Mujer openning. At night the whole place changes due to the great illumination.

Puerto Madero, a former port for docking/loading/unloading ships over the 1897 to 1912 period, has since about 1995, become a major tourist and restaurant area. I’ve been frequenting this area since 2000, with the opening of the Buenos Aires Hilton, which is a few minutes’ walk of many of fine restaurants . . . and even the La Casa Rosada... More

Good for a walk in the morning. Not much going on otherwise. People said it is a must to visit but I thought it was just okay. I did take a few photos.

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.
