Nice place to have a walk, lunch or dinner. Several restaurants with many options, unfortunately water from river seems to be dirty.

not my cup of tea, but I have to recognize that it is definitely worth the visit, beautiful scenario, very well done, many nice restaurants and bars, the in-place right now, expensive real-estate, but if I were local, I probably also would like to live there... as a visitor I couldn't imagine not to live in San Telmo...

Great to see an area transformed from former ugly docklands to a thriving area full of bars and restaurants, great for a stroll day & night. The Women´s bridge plus a couple of schooner´s are well worth seeing.

This is the area of the old docks. It's a wonderful area for walking, eating, and sightseeing. Good restaurant, not fancy, Siga la Vaca.

It is very upmarket pocket of the city of Buenes Aires. Good for stroll in the evening with river by the side. There is an unique shape bridge which gives this place an hip feeling. This area is newly built and modern unlike areas like Recoleta. Lots of restaurants along the river and a vintage ship.

If you want to take a quite walk through, see a bunch of restaurants, try good argentinian food, this may be the place, to sit down and relax.

Lovely area for a stop off on the hop on bus tour. Great for people watching and smashing restaurants along the water. Lots of photo opportunities.

A whole new facet to BA, where you can it from the waterside. Lots of new buildings on an island, a mix of residential and commercial. Lots of restaurant and bars on the waterfront. Nice for an afternoon stroll.

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.
