Puerto Madero is well-known as the safest neighbourhood of Buenos Aires. However, common incidents affecting foreign and local tourists are not uncommon and visitors should be alert to muggers, pickpockets, scam artists, and purse-snatchers. Political and social and demonstrations take place frequently, often without warning but also without violence.
