So different from the rest. Sky scrappers Modern architecture, different vibes. Nice walk to get out of the crowd and see something different then the cobbled stone paths or the busy streets.

This Buenos Aires second port. Completely modernized with old ships to visit, old cranes to photo, lots of restaurants to choose from and completely safe for walking day or evening. A happening place.

This is the newest tourist hotspot in BA. The area has been re-developed from an older port into a trendy place with many shops, restaurants and condos. It's one major downside is that the trees have not had time to grow up to rival that which you see in the older beautiful neighborhoods in BA. Someday!

When the weather is beautiful, this is a great place to be outdoors walking over the bridges, viewing the historic displays, shopping and stopping in for a quick or relaxed meal.

Ate at the Las Lilas restaurant overlooking the marina. Great steaks and plenty of Malbecs to choose from. As our table was at the front, the waiter cable tied my wife's bag to the chair to stop hit and run type theft which was a nice touch.

Purest Madero is a very nice area, away from the busy city center and crazy traffic. It is safe to walk and enjoy the beautiful weather, many restaurants and cafes to choose from.

Walking along the port you will notice how filthy the water is. Lots of restaurants are out of business and it is sad as it was fun at one time walking the area. Not so much now.

Great place to find a nice steak place for dinner, grab a coffee or go for a run. Its a very central location and easy to get to San Telmo, La boca, or Recoleta.

Staying in Puerto Madero

Neighbourhood 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 neighbourhood 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 symbolise this area. Puerto Madero is even more striking after dark, when the lights from the docks and skyscrapers glow against the night sky.
