10 Things to Do in Tigre That You Shouldn't Miss

April 5, 2018 Margarita Chappel

Day-trip distance from Buenos Aires, the Tigre River Delta offers porteños (Buenos Aires residents) and tourists alike a playground for everything from horseback riding and hiking to fishing and swimming. Comprised of hundreds of tiny islands, the Tigre is about 20 miles northeast of Buenos Aires and is reachable from the city by trains, then by boat from the train station. While the main attraction here is the delta itself (formed where five rivers come together), you’ll also find a Naval Museum, restaurants and playgrounds for kids. Several tour companies offer day-trip excursions to the Tigre River Delta—but visitors also can book stays in area bed & breakfasts and adventure lodges.

Museo de arte Tigre

Reviewed By Colesterol - Tigre, Argentina

This museum used to be a fancy hotel, way back when immigrants from various nationalities (British, French, Italian, German, Swiss...) had their rowing clubs in the neighbourhood. Then, after the second World War, the area become less frequented (or fashionable, I should say) and the hotel became less used until it was abandoned (literally). Now recovered and refurbished as a museum, it has become a nice place to visit. The surrounding area is also quite unique, with the Lujan River as background: numerous cafés, bars, and BBQ restaurants. Nice place to go for a stroll.

Barco Bruma

Bruma is a typical wooden boat which used to carry timber from the Islands. We refurbished it to do private tours for 2 up to 25 pax. Bruma has a large roofed area on the stern for 8 pax seated. There is a comfortable solarium area. We offer barbeque lunch or dinner on board with Argentine typical specialties and a Malbec to top it all. Run by its owners.

Our tour of the Tigre Delta onboard the Barco Bruma (meaning misty) was a pleasant experience. First of all, Rosana and Captain Chuck are really nice friendly people and excellent hosts. Although a bit old, the boat was clean and comfortable with lots of room for our party of 16 people. Services from Rosana’s 3 staff were excellent and attentive. Food (sausage Sandwich, BBQ lomo - beef tenderloin, cheese and salad) were great with free flowing wines, beer, soft drinks and juice. The river and channels were very active. It was a wonderful place to see and feel how the upper middle class residents of Buenos Aires spent their holiday – sailing, swimming, jet and water skiing, sunbathing, picnicking, etc. It was a very relaxing and enjoyable day indeed - a perfect ending for our Patagonia trip. One caution though, make sure you and Rosana have a clear and common understanding on who is arranging transportation from your hotel to the docking location. We found out that we were supposed to have arranged our own transportation when we confirmed our tour with Rosana. Fortunately, Rosana was able to find another company to pick us up and bring us back to our hotel in short notice. Transportation was about 45 minutes each way.

Museo Naval de la Nacion

Reviewed By br_luv2travl - Ontario

Visited with my 18 yr old grandson. The only disadvantage is that there are no explanations in English. I was told there was an English speaking translator/guide on the weekends in the afternoon.
Exhibits are varied and quite well laid out. By Argentine standards, it is very well done. Clean and well lit. The exhibition continues outside.
Will definitely return with my father (who speaks Spanish) and my English-only speaking husband.
Entrance was Ten pesos.

Villa Ocampo

Reviewed By Jesusmiguel58 - Buenos Aires, Argentina

This is the place where Victoria Ocampo spent much of her life and hosted a good number of historic leaders and cultural personalities from all around the world, from Rabindranath Tagore to Federico García Lorca, Graham Greene, Albert Camus or Jorge Luis Borges, the list is endless. The house itself is elegant but not extravagant, and the Gardens, the library and the book collections makes this an unmissable visit if you are interested in getting to know more about this uncompromising, unique woman. The house was given to the UNESCO by the explicit wish of Mrs.Ocampo who wanted this place to be kept aside of all political turbulence in Argentina.

Boulevard de Tigre

El Boulevard de Tigre es el distrito de Arte de Tigre, ubicado en pleno corazon tigrense y a pasos del Puerto de Frutos. Ademas de diversas galerias de arte, el Boulevard hospeda propuestas grastronomicas, indumentaria de autor y exquisitas antiguedades. Todo esto acompanado por la camaraderia y hospitalidad de los hosts de cada lugar, que remarcan la amabilidad de pueblo que posee Tigre.

Reviewed By RMartinSDXB - Dubai, United Arab Emirates

A good place for a stroll if you are an art lover with lots of galleries and art spots around the boulevard. A nice place to take pictures and hang out, it gets very crowded during the weekends with lots of people gather for the Tigre Shopping Port. If you are not an art lover, you can just pass by in your way to the Puerto de Frutos without any hassle.

We stumbled upon the Japanese Gardens after visiting the rose Gardens and the Planetarium. We paid about 120 pesos each to enter and stayed in the Gardens for a couple of hours or so.
The Gardens were interesting and were an unexpected little relaxing oasis in the middle of the busy city
