Took the train from Retiro, it's about an hour ride to the town of Tigre. I was under the impression (after reading few reviews) that one can join a collective boat and hop-on hop-off where ever one wants. Apparently, you have to specify a restaurant or a coffee shop and that will take you there and pick you up after... More

The train ride was interesting but we found Tigre was more than that. There are several restaurants near the train station, and many more if you walk just a few blocks into Tigre in either direction along the river. A great place to walk, shop, relax for a few hours.

I stayed in Buenos Aires taking a Spanish course and visited on one weekend Tigre which is about an hour away from Retiro train station. The train was completely free; someone said due to the poor maintenance in the past which I didn't notice. Tigre gets crowded during high season on weekends. Many Porteños spend their weekend there and some... More

Booked this tour through a local agency in BA for 200AP. They picked you up from the hotel & dropped you off and the tour also included a boat ride on the canals. The tour was efficient with a nice clean boat and polite staff who served you some light refreshments of coffee & biscuits. Overview of the tour. Well... More

Worth seeing just to say you did but it was never my favourite place (especially if you are used to clean pristine waters) The restaurants around there aren't the best either. If you want to head to Uruguay then leave from Tigre (hit two birds with one stone)

We booked a tour of Tigre through a travel agent and the bus picked us up at our hotel (Hotel Etoile) in Recoleta. The tour itself was pretty neat, a city with no roads, only river. The tour lasted about an hour, and the boat provided a little drink and a traditional Argentinian cookie. Definitely interesting and a good way... More

If you are driving from BA, be sure to fit a cruise in to see the houses on the canal. Otherwise, I'm not sure what else there is to do there. That was worth the visit. Tours also leave from BA, I would recommend that!

About an hour NW of central BA is Tigre, a cute town that is the gateway to the Parana River delta, another world in comparison to BA. I expected a very natural area of waterways and marshes, but I was very wrong, at least in the areas we traversed. You get on a sightseeing boat and head off down a... More

The most mysterious and fascinating place I've seen in Buenos Aires is the Delta in Tigre. Make sure you take a boat trip in the delta maze to see how people live on these islands and how they do the shopping in the boat-shops.
