This rotating pedestrian bridge is a tourist magnet for Puerto Madero in Buenos Aires. It was high on my list of must see sights when planning this visit. It's surrounded by eateries, shops, and tall, commercial buildings in the business district. Walk across the bridge and see people kayaking on the river. There isn't much to do on the other... More

As in other port cities around the world, Buenos Aires has its own version of, for instance, London's Docklands. Our Argentine version, of course, relates to food -mainly beef in these latitudes- and drink. The area historically occupied by port warehouses was recycled to become a fashionable district occupied by offices, residences, and restaurants. However, my personal preference lies in... More

The old harbour of BA has been converted in a huge promenade with lots of bars and restaurants. This is not the cheapest place to go out, but it's free to walk. The old warehouses on one side have been restored into bars and restaurants and apartments and at the other side new buildings and converted factories form a new... More

It's a beautiful place to visit in Buenos Aires. This neighborhood was designed to be a port (and it was for a while) but became obsolete and after long years "unused" became a financial and gastronomic center of the city. The area combines old pieces from the port with nice and modern new buildings. It's a great scenery for photos.... More

We were told to visit Puerto Madero, and we went to eat at Siga La Vaca. Good meat and you can eat all you want for a fixed price, included a bottle of wine. The mix of old and new buildings made it interesting.

Madero use to be a warehouse area and docks in the port of Buenos Aires and was transformed into a walking venue full of great restaurants along the water of the old docks. A whole new modern city as evolved in this area with sky rises and luxury hotels. There is a beautiful walking bridge designed by famous Spanish architect... More

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

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.
