Nice, tranquil area!

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.

Loks happening all the time around the port with many joggers and people strolling around. Many restaurants and most of pretty fine quality which makes this a good place to visit. Not many boats to see anymore which is a shame but still worth the visit even if only for a good meal.

Tourist area with bars and restaurants. Seemed quiet early afternoon, but busier in the evening. Situated alongside what was supposed to be the port, but is more like a wide canal. Separated from downtown by a couple of busy roads, but walkable from Plaza Mayo area.

Puerto Madero is, no doubt, a pretty place to take a walk. But hey, if you didn't know better, you could be walking around any other modern metropoli of the globe. Puerto Madero has nothing of what makes Buenos Aires the city it is.

Good place for runners: a promenade without cars, traffic lights and gased. Nice view of yachts and ships. Also has a lot of restaurants and bars.

When you visit Buenos Aires, don´t miss the opportunity to see Puerto Madero. It is a old port area which was completely renewed and it contrasts with the classical french architecture of the "old city" only a couple of blocks away.

This place has a town that, on the day we were there, was not worth going ashore for, however if you after a glimpse of some wild life there are many and varied excursions out of town, it is a great pity that in this day and age there are so many visitors that access to some places is no... More

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.
