A trip to Tigre

The city of Tigre lies 28kms away from Buenos Aires in the Northern part of the greater BA and can be easily accessed by car or train. It lies on the Parana Delta and is an important tourist and weekend destination for locals and foreigners.

I took the Mitre Line train and was surprised at how quick and comfy I got there ( less than an Hour from Retiro Terminal). Upon arriving you´ll see the brand new train station pictured above and you´ll find the main canal which can be walked along by a riverside walk, that is littered with restaurants and outdoor markets.

Tigre is also famous for its rowing clubs which are very similar to those found along the Thames river in London. Above we see the "La Marina Rowing Club" and below "Club de remo Argentino"
