The Basics

Many visitors come to Puerto Madero for the drinking, dining, and dancing—the twinkling lights after sundown create an atmospheric setting for an evening out. The neighborhood features on many city sightseeing tours, and one of the city’s top tango shows, Rojo Tango, is staged at the island’s Faena Hotel. If you’re interested in the city’s diverse architecture, consider a themed bike tour that includes a pedal along the Puerto Madero waterfront.

GREAT VIBES OF BA!
This tour is operated in both English and Spanish. You are picked up in a clean and comfortable van at the designated time in your hotel lobby, and you are then transported across Buenos Aires stopping along the way to various "must sees" allowing time for browsing and picture taking. This is a great tour to do your first full day in Buenos Aires as you can get "a feel" for this magical city and all it has to offer. Our Guide spoke beautifully in both Spanish and English. She was very knowledgeable about the city and its history, and she did an outstanding job narrating as we rode from one location to the next. For just a few dollars more, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND adding the lunch on to your ticket price. We were taken to a very lovely restaurant that overlooked the river at Puerto Madero. There was a menu offered with several selections (including vegetarian options) for appetizer, main course and dessert. Although not an included dessert on the set menu offered, I highly recommend adding (at a small additional cost) the dulce de leche lava cake. OMG, SO GOOD!!! The service at this restaurant was impeccable! Once we were finished with our meal, we did a bit of walking along the river. Then, we returned to the restaurant so we could login to their WiFi to call an Uber back to our hotel, which, of course, they graciously allowed us to do. This is a great "vibe" tour of Buenos Aires, and I highly recommend it. ADD the Lunch!

Puente de la Mujer

Of all the architectural gems in Puerto Madero, none is quite so recognizable as the Woman’s Bridge (Puente de la Mujer). This swing bridge connecting Puerto Madero to Plaza de Mayo on the mainland was designed by famed Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava, who drew inspiration for the design from the tango.
