Don't Miss the Delta!

The Paraná Delta is where the Paraná River flows into the Río de La Plata. There are numerous rivers and canals, and hundreds and hundreds of islands. The islands were formed by sediment coming down the river. Seeds came along with the sediment, and the islands are covered with vegetation. Only 5% of the islands are inhabited, with a population of about 3500. There are quite a few vacation homes also.

This is a huge recreation area, and you will see everything that floats—canoes, kayaks, rowboats, racing shells, jet skis, rubber rafts, power boats (one with a water skier.) There is no speed limit—spray from a passing motorboat soaked me as I sat by the window of our excursion boat.

Everything is done by boat—buses, taxis, hauling services, etc. There are supermarket boats! If you don’t have a cell phone or a radio, you can put a basket on your pier to let the grocery boat know you need to buy something. (For big orders, it’s a lot cheaper to go to town.)

The former president has a summer home here—look for a yellow house with a big flag and a penguin statue!

The first house on the delta, built in the 1850s, is now a museum. It has been encased in a glass box to protect it from the weather.

An elegant building closer to town, the former Tigre Club, has been renovated and serves as an art museum.

An excellent place for lunch is El Gato Blanco (The White Cat) on Rio Capitan. (

I was in a group, but it looks easy to get to Tigre by train, and then find a tour or take the public bus boat from the Fluvial Station.

Tigre - stunningly beautiful !!

Like a lot of other people, I got out of B.A. for the day and took a trip "to the Delta".

Starting at Retiro ( a beautiful architectural experience in itself !!) and costing 2/3 pesos return !!! it only takes about 45 minutes to reach Tigre ( the human "entertainment" on the train at various points can also be fun ).

Out of the station and straight ahead to the Information booth on the River walkway to buy your ticket for the boat ( 20 pesos round trip on the boat that also acts as a bus - stopping at numerous jetties on the way to pick up / drop off passengers.

I can't remember the name of the place I got off but it was only a short walk along a pathway to the restaurant ( very Alpine / German in look ) - good meal and then on with the walk through the pathways / houses / streams etc seeing beatiful flowers /trees / birds / painted houses / houses on stlits / small houses / big houses / etc etc

Literally, a backwater to the Rio Grande but well worth the effort / time to see it.

Tigre itself isn't much of a town but the trip up the Delta is a real gem - not to be missed !!!

Tigre, one hour escape from Buenos Aires

I heard about this popular delta region which can be reached in one hour when heading north from Buenos Aires. I took the taxi and I don’t know how much I paid ($50?), but I knew it was not much. It is a popular weekend getaway for portenos.
When I got there, there were nice little shops and the water was “inviting” me to ride a boat to explore the delta. Boat companies are very easy to find to schedule 1 to 3 hour rides, depending whether you want to include a meal on one of the delta restaurants by the water. Of course, I was hungry and chose the meal and was not disappointed later. The salmon was good!
The Delta del Parana ‘s waters stream in from the inland jungles of Argentina. The boat passed lots of colonial mansions and beautiful houses along the riverbank.
If you don’t want to take the taxi to tigre, take the Tren de la Costa route instead to enjoy a more scenic ride. There is a stop at San Isidro which is a pleasant suburb with an outdoor shopping center.

El Tigre: A Relaxing Day Outside the City

El Tigre is a small town located about 35km from the city of Buenos Aires. You can reach the town by train from BA or take one of the many tours to the area. Tigre is a very quiet and relaxing town and a great place to go and unwind.

You can start by taking a boat trip on the River which takes about 45 minutes and takes you through the Delta so you can watch life on the river and see the many beautiful houses that like the Delta.

Afterwards you can stroll the streets of Tigre to do a little bit of shopping or head over to the tourist train which takes you to other spots of interest nearby.

El Tigre also has a theme park inbetween the town and the Delta, which looked quite interesting; however, we did not visit it so I can not share any info on how good it is.

Tigre - relax your pace from the city

I didn't take the local ferry around the neighborhood, which the tourist office senorita told me it'd take 3 hours round trip. Given that I got there pretty late - around 2pm, I decided to take the large tour boat and just relax. It was not bad as the weather was excellent and it was on weekday, which I believe most crowds were here on weekends.

Day trip to Tigre

The Tigre region is a huge delta about 1 hour north of Buenos Aires. We took a day tour and were picked up from out hotel in a bus, then dropped off and got the local train to the Tigre region before getting on another bus!! A bit long winded but it gave us the opportunity to see different areas of the city including the richest suburban area. Once off the train you are lead through a craft/tourist market which has expensive but nice little tid bits. We were allowed to wonder around for an hour before heading off to the catamaran and our cruise.

The cruise itself goes for about an hour and goes down several of the wider canals before turning around again. The catamaran typically has two levels with an enclosed level downstairs with tables and chairs and a viewing deck upstairs. Along the canals are various houses, but where we went was mostly bush land and various animals. On the water you will see lots of other boats as well as the occasional ship wreck. It has to be seen to be believed.

Day trips (with or without lunch) are not that expensive and we paid US$20 for the privilege. I highly recommend a visit!!

One of the good activities to do besides, exploring el obelisco and the 9 de julio av. is going to this magnificient point, called`s a very nice green area where you can find so many recreational parks and going through the rivers is very good experience.
Most of argentinian people take a kayac and raw through the river just for sport and getting some fun.
For the tourist There are so many travel agencies that offer a tour in catamarans. i just took a short trip around the river and it was definitely very nice. i saw so many people around preparin a asado, and relaxing.

Rowing Capital of Buenos Aires

Delta del Tigre got its name from the Spaniards who saw tigers when they got to this place. Nowadays, no tigers exist there anymore. This is a 45 minutes to 1 hour trip from Recoleta area. They take you first by a big bus then you stop in San Isidro to hop on a train to take you to the pier of the Delta. Train ride gives you a glimpse on the nice houses with european designs.

Once on the delta you take a passenger boat with an upper deck. Go to the upper deck to see the good view. Most people here own boats and most kids learn to row the boats before driving a car. This is only accessible by boat, it's also the summer place of most argentinians in Buenos Aires. It has many nice resort hotels along the delta, you will also see lots of men practising rowing. Along the way, you will see a historic house inside a glass to preserve the wood from moisture. Nothing much to do here just look at the houses and the historic house, you're not allowed to go down to check it out though. Then the boat turns around and you're back to the train station.

On the way back you stop at San Isidro, where you can see the big church on weekends there is a fleamarket around the plaza. Some interesting things to check out, nice to look at the local artist work of arts. I bought a painting from a local artist, and hand painted fridge magnets very nice gifts to your friends back home.

Heheheheh that is what most argentineans do in the weekends, they usually go to Tigre for a nice rest, to sail on the river channels...Okay, the name Tigre comes really from the word TIGER...Back there in the past, and I am talking about 1580, a special of jaguar used to live there, lots of them... the native called it as yaguaretés (american tiger), but the spanish wrongly thought they were tigers, but thanks to that, TIGRE IS TIGRE!

To go there you jsut need to drive 32km from the OBELISCO, heading north of the city, Tigre is a small town outside of Buenos Aires, it is something they call PROVINCIA DE BUENOS AIRES!

Actually these water belongs to a river called Lujan which will meet the Parana River, and then the Parana Delta will start.
