Just 15 miles from B.A. dowtown there is a paradise few tourist get to know ,the Delta of the parana and Biosfera reservoir(UNESCO).
The delta is one of those unforgettable sites that remain forever in the memory of its visitors. Sailing across this area is the best choice to get to know its rivers, its islands and its people from the inside. A Voyage not to Be Missed Indeed .
You may take a public boat in the Tigre harbour area or a private one.
Lying midway along the Rio Sarmiento, a major Deltan waterway that runs into the Rio Lujan opposite from Tigre, is the Museo Sarmiento. Glass encloses the former vacation home of President Domingo Sarmiento, who bought the house in 1855, to protect the home from the area’s humidity. The home also serves as a local library.
The willow reeds – osier – found along the waterway banks are not native. The first sprig ws planted by Sarmiento in 1855 with an eye on building up of the local wicker handicraft industry. The reeds obviously like it here, spreading throughout the region, similar to the other invasive, the water hyacinth.
Here is a very good option for you to have fun, adventure, relax or feel adrenaline;) in the Delta del Parana(Tigre), only 30km away from Buenos Aires. The oportunity to practice or learn fun water sports(wakeboard, wakeskate, wakesurf, water ski) or to travel all around the exotic zone in a cool boat(music, drinks...).

Tigre is so beautiful, but so beautiful that I couldn't stand more than one night there! Sorry... it's just that I'm not used to such a calm and small place!
I have to say that the only night was worthy, it was my second time in town and I was not disappointed! Trying do run away from the Buenos Aires rush, it is the best place to go!
Walking along the river is an unique experience, linstening to the clock ringing at 6pm at the train station was another one!
There are several museums, but I preferred to spend my day just walking and having some icecream! Highly recommended!
While the Parque de la Costa may attract some, most still come to Tigre to get out into the Delta of the Parana. The true length of the Delta is enormous, stretching from its southern terminus in the Rio de la Plata just outside Tigre, northwards past Rosario to Sant Fe-Parana, almost 500 km by car. The Delta is a major getaway for people from BsAs. Folks have their simple vacation homes – and some, not so simple – spread out along the innumerable waterways of the Delta. Boats take off from the Estacion Fluvial Tigre, serving an assortment of schedules and destinations.
Huge buildings, formerly housing rowing clubs, can be found around the town. The former Tigre Club is now a municipal center. North of the Estacion Fluvial, you can also find a couple of interesting museums: the Museo de la Reconquista, devoted to the struggle to defeat invading English forces during 1806 that had occupied BsAs and the Museo Naval de la Nacion where you can find naval exhibits within one of the Navy’s first workshops.
Located on the Rio Tigre – which flows into the Rio Lujan only a couple hundred meters beyond – the River Station is just across the street from the main train station – which connects Tigre with the Retiro Train Station in BsAs. From here, most river/Delta trips emanate. From the Tourist Burea, information can be obtained regarding boat destinations, schedules and tickets.
Located in the old warehouse shed of the old fruit and vegetable port along the Rio Lujan are craft stalls of many sorts. Basketry made from willow reeds – osier – is very popular, with the reeds coming out of the Delta. Things really get happening on the weekends as many make their way out of BsAs. The Puerto de Frutas is four blocks south of the Estacion Delta – the Tigre terminus for the light rail, Tren de la Costa.
The little "crusier" along the river, lets you enjoy to know better the delta of the river.
You will get to know 4 rivers and all the places at the sides of them.
Also you will get to see the "regular" life stile of the people that lives there.
It will cost you only AR$ 10 and it is an hour 1/2 trip, wich with a nice day is a great thing to do.
I would suggest to do it in a week day, it is less crowded and you can enjoy better (unless you love crowds).=)
