Travel Tips for Tigre
This picture is at Paseo del Toro restaurant. You can ask for one of those chairs and just lay down and enjoy the scenery!
You must figure that this paradise is only 1 hour train trip from the capital city!! Isn't that great?
Esta foto es del restaurant Paseo del Toro. Podes pedir una de esas sillas y quedarte ahi disfrutando del paisaje!
Imaginense que este lugar queda a una hora de viaje en tren de la capital! No es increible?
JUMPING AROUND TIGRE WITHOUT A CAMERA!
I'm sure I am not alone in this experience - going to a wonderful place and forgetting to bring your camera, lol! The picture above is not from Tigre, but just at the South Mountain in Arizona which is about 30 minutes from our house.
I just took a cab from Buenos Aires to Tigre and then had a great time there - lots of good memories riding the boat - but then no pictures! It's all just in my memory but very hazy (wish I had pics too look at to remember).
But, I am filling up this page with jumping pictures instead.
El Tigre - South America's Venice
El Tigre is a municipality north of Buenos Aires, centered on the Delta del Rio Plata. This area is a maze of spider webbed rivers, canals, islands and residences. Once you cross the first waterway from the mainland, there are no roads, access is either by private boat or water taxi. A perfect way to see this area if you are not renting a cabana here would be to arrive prior to lunch, take a taxi out to Isle de Tres Bocas, take a leisurely lunch at one of its patio restaurants, then spend an hour or so wondering the interior of the island.

A relaxing get-away
"Take the train"
Tigre is another of those areas that if you had a month or two to travel around, you'd want to stay for a few days for some laid back relaxation.
What a contrast to Buenos Aires. No wonder the city dwellers come up here on the weekends.
About an hour outside BA is the Rio Tigre. You can charter a boat for a half day for about $100 US, and cruise up the river for lunch. It's a great way to spend a morning/afternoon out of Buenos Aires. Go to the Gato Blanco (white cat) for lunch.
Traveling up river was like Apocolypse Now!
