We had a lovely walk along the promenades located in Puerto Madero. You can get there walking when stopping in Metro (Subte) line B, station Amen. If you are lucky you can see the Puente de la Mujer openning. At night the whole place changes due to the great illumination.

Puerto Madero, a former port for docking/loading/unloading ships over the 1897 to 1912 period, has since about 1995, become a major tourist and restaurant area. I’ve been frequenting this area since 2000, with the opening of the Buenos Aires Hilton, which is a few minutes’ walk of many of fine restaurants . . . and even the La Casa Rosada... More

Good for a walk in the morning. Not much going on otherwise. People said it is a must to visit but I thought it was just okay. I did take a few photos.

We spent the morning walking to the Puerto Madero and enjoying the views from both sides of the river crossing the pedestrian Puente de la Mujer (the woman's bridge) which is a wonderful modern bridge by architect Santiago Calatrava which was primarily built in Victoria, Spain and taken to Buenos Aires in parts over five months. There are many wonderful... More

I happened to visit on a bright Sunday afternoon and it was full of people, nice restaurants and memorable was the experience of the visiting the Naval ship docked over there. Wide streets to walk around and take a panoramic view of beautiful skyscrapers of the great city Buenos Aires is..

I went to Puerto Madero on Sunday when rest of the city centre was dead-quiet. Peurto Madero was full of people walking, eating at the restaurants, enjoying the weekend.

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.
