Puerto Madero (Port Code:MXPMD) dates to 1889 as Buenos Aires' first port, built in front of Argentina's federal administrative center (Plaza de Mayo) and the President's residence (Casa Rosada). It is located on the southernmost part of the Mexican Pacific Ocean coast. Puerto Madero handles seagoing traffic, as well as fishing vessels and coasters. The port's main export is fruit. The port has the potential for establishing fisheries, shipyards and specialised terminals for the handling of grain, fertilisers and fluids. The harbours are protected by 2 breakwaters with a length of 1,400m.
It was only a functioning port for about fifteen years after it was finished in 1897. It was built to accommodate the cargo ships of the day, but the increasing use of larger cargo ships around that time quickly rendered it obsolete. A new port built to accommodate the larger ships opened in 1911, and that was the beginning of the end of Puerto Madero’s life as a port.
