Why do you have to know Tigre?

Very close to Buenos Aires there is a different world, in which cars become boats and time has a different rhythm. Do you know Tigre?

Buenos Aires

Living with water as part of our everyday landscape is not something that we are accustomed to in large cities. At least not to live literally surrounded by water. However, very close to the City of Buenos Aires there is a place where cars become boats and time has another rhythm: Tiger. It's not like there aren't cars there, it's not that. But if you venture to the islands of the Delta, there is: everything goes through the water. The collectives, the taxis, the supermarket. All of it.

For that and for many other reasons, Tigre is an essential place for locals and foreigners. We tell you some places you can't miss:

1. The Port of Fruits

puerto de frutos

Its name refers to its previous use: until the middle of the 20th century, there landed fruit production in the Paraná Delta, which was then marketed in the city of Buenos Aires. Today, however, is an outdoor market where you can find furniture, ornaments and household items, accessories made of cane and wicker, products of saddlery, homemade sweets, flowers and a variety of local fruits. It is a nice walk that can end up eating something or — why not— doing some tour of the Delta.

2. Victorian Walk and Tiger Art Museum

One of the most picturesque circuits is the Paseo Victorica, with its winding streets bordering the river. It's ideal. to walk quietly, enjoy the shade of trees, observe the facades of the old houses and stop for a bite to eat. Finally, the Tigre Art Museum: with its majestic construction, it is a magnificent piece of the belle époque Argentina. There you can get to know the stable collection of figurative art from the end of the nineteenth century to the middle of the twentieth century.

3. The Paraná Delta

The Paraná Delta is the fifth largest in the world and the only one that leads to a fresh water. At the River Station you can hop on a collective boat or a tourist catamaran, which they will take you through their rivers. It's shocking to discover such a different lifestyle, in which nature and water are protagonists.
