Exploring the northern of Buenos Aires
Tigre City is located 21 miles from BA Downtown is the gateway to Tigre Delta, one of the largest in the world. It is a place formed by thousands of islands inhabited by a curious community.
After picking you up, we drive towards north, visiting the elegant district of San Isidro where the ancient mansions belonged to the wealthy families as summer houses during the XVIII Century. A glimpse of the neo gothic cathedral is a "must do".
Once we arrive to Tigre City, known as "The cradle of the rowing", we visit the city and the "Puerto de Frutos", a market opened 60 years ago by the "islanders", a place where you can find local handy crafts. Later we get a typical wooden motor boat, sailing for 1 hour by diferent chanels, enjoying nature and local culture.
No way to get the islands by car, because there is no bridges or highways and everything must be taken by boat. . . you will see supermarket boat, taxi boats, ice cream boats, , , and many oddities!!!

Mirta was a great guide to this really fun and unique destination. Her English is excellent, meaning that we could get so much more out of our experience. She planned the day extremely well, giving us interesting historical tidbits along the way. I highly recommend this trip and this guide if you are in Buenos Aires!
