A definite area to see when visiting Buenos Aires. It reminds many who have been to San Francisco 's wharves of that beautiful area. stop by to have a bite to eat at its many diverse restaurants. See the Calatrava bridge - a treat! Many boats are docked there as well as a Clipper ship.

We had a fun time but it was a simple place with a few restaurants. The bridges are cool. The place across the river is an up and coming place. Took some pictures and left.

Very pretty area filled with nice museum boats and architecture. The bridges are nice too. I would suggest to go in the evenings as well as its a very safe place for a evening stroll.

Spent a few hours at Puerto Madero taking photos and walking from the Hilton Hotel across the bridge to the tall ship that is a museum. This is a great place for walking, jogging and enjoying a drink in an outside cafe.

Nice place to go and walk, with tons of dining choices. We were there on a hot day and it was a nice relief to wlak by the river. I wish there were more trees... finding a shady spot to sit was not easy... more benches/ more shade would be nice

The rich enjoys the classy style, I would say yuppie style. Restaurants in this area are good ,meat is the best, incredible wines! Puerto Maderos is land gained to the river years ago. Right now the most expensive where to buy almost anything. The Rio de la Plata is the widest river in the world. In the other side is... More

With the high-rises being built, it just felt a bit sterile and lacking in culture. It's a fine neighborhood and there are some good restaurants there, but it feels disconnected from the rest of the city. There were a few neat attractions there, including the ARA Uruguay (a ship that had gone to Antarctica), but otherwise it's not the most... More

Following the worldwide trend of recycling old industrial neighbourhoods into trendy, classy areas, Puerto Madero has evolved over the last 25 years as a modern part of the city, with broad spaces, nice parks, proximity to a natural reserve (to recover some contact with nature) and high skyscrapers; should you be lucky to enter one of these and go to...

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.
