    Puerto Madero

    Favorite thing: This is the area that used to house the old Buenos Aires port. And it connects the center of the city with the Costanera Sur. Today, near the four docks and after an extensive renovation, it's an area of upscale restaurants and shops, a pedestrian walkway and two floating museums: The Fritgata Sarmiento and the Corbeta Uruguay.

    During the 19th century, the Darsena Norte area was the place where hundreds of thousands of immigrants arrived to Argentina, turning Buenos Aires into the cosmopolitan city it is today. The port was named after Eduardo Madero, who was an engineer and public servant, and whose design for the port was chosen from many competing designs.

    Favorite thing: walking in Puerto Madero is a nice thing to do both at night or during the day. amazingly it s very safe even at night, and there are discos, restaurants, icecream parlours and many shops to see and enjoy while you smell the river air surrounded by the nature of the "reserva ecologica" that is not far from there.

    Favorite thing: This place is the old harbour now reconvert like leisure place crowded of chic restaurants and terraces but keeping the huge crane towers destinated to empty the load ships
    Its located closer to Plaza de Mayo just "two blocks" behind it croosing Av de la Rabida ...(5 minutes walking). And its a suggestive place to visit and take a meal or just a coffee ...besides beneath one of the big towers there is the inforation touristic point

    Favorite thing: At the back you can see "el puente de la mujer" (women's bridge). Puerto Madero is a new neightbourhood, it's full of restaurants but expect to pay much more than the average there!

    En el fondo se puede ver el puente de la mujer. Puerto Madero es un barrio nuevo que esta lleno de restaurantes, pero son mucho mas caro que el promedio.
