We visited Puerto Madero while on our Latin America trip. Its a wonderful place to spend an evening in BA. The night view is lovely with brightly lit bridges and reflections of the surrounding buildings on the water giving a mirror like effect. There are a lot of restaurants and bars n pubs around the water bay and perfect for... More

Puerto Madero is part of the old port of the city. They completely renovated the old warehouses, put a Calatrava bridge and transformed the place into a very pleasant recreational area. In a walking distance from the city center it was our daily stroll.

Trendy restaurants, fine museums (some of them with free admittance), lots of security, in the heart of town. A must if you enjoy a night out.

Like many cities Buenos Aires has done a great job of tidying up some of its waterfront - the area is now slick and modern, and as is the norm also now pretty soulless, filled with Starbucks and generic restaurants. However, it is still a nice place to walk around and enjoy the boats and people-watching after a day of... More

I found this area very similar to the docks in Dublin and it turns out that they had the same architect. Nice for a quiet stroll with a coffee.

To walking around and make great photos, a lot of couples in love goes to see the sunset. There is a bridge dedicated to woman and some old ships.

Old warehouses turned into condos with some upscale restaurants. While it was a nice place to walk around, I didn't see anything spectacular about it other than the turn of the century cranes.

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.
