Many cities around the world have rehabilitated abandoned former port areas, transforming old workplaces in leisure spaces, where both its inhabitants and tourists can enjoy their free time. Buenos Aires is no exception and the Puerto Madero neighborhood has become one of the most popular in the city.
The old warehouses have been turned into luxury apartments, shops and trendy restaurants (we visited Cabaña Las Lillas and Johnny B. Good and we recommend both!). Industrial elements were kept and now combine with external cared spaces and the modern architecture of the new buildings. The central axis of the neighborhood is a river arm that is crossed by the iconic Puente de la Mujer.
The wide sidewalks and bike paths along the river are full of people of all ages walking, riding bikes or roller-skates, playing with the kids or running with their pets. Enjoying the view on the terrace of a good restaurant or one of the many cafes, relaxing on a park bench or sunbathing on a lawn, are just some of the activities you can enjoy in Puerto Madero. At night the sky line of the most modern part of Buenos Aires is beautiful and the nightlife is animated.
