We found this ship by accident and we're thrilled to find that it had been built in the Cammell Laird shipyard in Birkenhead Uk which is my home town. The men in charge were interested to hear this and were very helpful in showing us...More
After having just taken the treacherous trip through the Drake Passage to Antarctica, it was fascinating to imagine how this small navy ship made it there over a hundred years ago. It's definitely worth a visit for both the history and just for exploring the...More
We came across this boat anchored at the port. This great boat is now a museum. It made many trips to Antartica and inside the boat there were numerous displays of its past voyages, equipment and crew. It was a great way to spend time...More

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
neighborhood 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 symbolize this area. Puerto Madero is even more striking after dark, when the lights from the docks and skyscrapers glow against the night sky.
