  • Just by Foot

    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...


    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...


    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...


    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...


    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...

Tigre Transportation


    Located just across from the Estacion Fluvial Tigre are the boats of Cacciola. These head out to further flung destinations outside of the Delta – the fascinating Isla Martin Garcia and Uruguayan towns of Carmelo and Nuevo Palmira, from where further bus connections exist to Colonia and Montevideo. Cacciola also has a downtown BsAs address on...

  • Figuring out the Trains

    There are two lines that go to Tigre. The regular Tigre line, or the Mitre line/Tren de la Costa - both from the Retiro station. If you want to take the Tren de la Costa, take the Mitre line to the end. Then transfer to the Tren de la Costa. This isn't easy to figure out by what is posted in the train station. There are no route maps! I also saw an...

  • Catamaran tour of the rivers

    Tigre is a very walkable town. Both train lines (Tren de la Costa and Tigre line) bring you right into town. You can walk around and see the different boat tours that are available. The main boat terminal is crowded and there can be lines to get on one of the typical river cruise boats. They really pack in the people Best thing is to take a...

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Delta islands area should be visited specially in sunny day full year round , but skipp it if it is rainning .

    As for Tigre city , there are Museums to visit , but i would suggest waiting for good weather to get the most of your visit that has a lot of outdoors.

    Favorite thing: 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?
