Tigre is a very nice city outside of the capital you can reach by train in only 1h. There you have plenty of stuff to do, lot of restaurants, shops, fisherman life and gorgeous houses nearby the river. The boat tour is a must do to fully discover this delta and the famous Rio de la Plata!
Coming from Atacama, in Chile, we arrived in Buenos Aires for the New Year’s eve, and visited Tigre the 2nd of January. As a bank holiday, it was really full of local tourists in a family ambiance.
How to go to Tigre?
EASY PEASY: By train!
From Buenos Aires, there is a very simple and cheap way to explore this beautiful city of Tigre: The train (only 30km, 1h)!
You need to go to El Retiro train station, buy a ticket at the old counter (74 ARS) and get on the first train (leaving every 30min, starting from 5am to 9.30pm)!
From the train station of Tigre, you only need to walk 5min to find the main canal where all the boat tours are (between 70 y 185 ARS depending the tour you pick).
Don’t forget to take a look on the Puerto de frutos, very nice area where you can have lunch by the river.
After a quick trip in Brasil we arrived in Salta from where we started a 4 days road trip.
After visiting Iguazu falls from the argentian side, we decided to cross the border and enjoy a Brazil East coast! From Foz de Iguazu we went to Florianopolis, Paraty, Ilha Grande and finally Rio for a total 13 days. I share with you the detail of the trip and transportation!
We are staying in this beautiful region waiting for the borders to open. As the main sites are currently closed, we found great alternatives and discovered new amazing places! I’ve already visited and described the main sites in a previous post, but I wanted to share here the info up to date.
