Weekend bike rentals are available just behind Puerto Madero at Costanera Sur for just a few bucks an hour. Bring the bikes over to Puerto Madero to ride by the water and join in the hundreds of locals who prefer this sunny exercise spot.
- Up until the epic restoration in 1994, the brick docks lining the old port of Buenos Aires remained abandoned. The area now thrives with modern residential and business lofts and offices, bars, restaurants, an eight-theatre cinema complex, and a university while retaining the original English redbrick facades. The 15-block area runs two kilometres along the river bank dotted with fine dining, such as the Parolaccia di Mare. Two historic ships from the Argentine Armada, the Corbeta Uruguay and the Fragata Sarmiento, are moored quayside as floating naval museums.
