10.TAKE A CITY TOUR

Buenos Aires - City Tour

WHAT TO DO IN BUENOS AIRES 2019

It is often said that Buenos Aires is the Paris of Latin America. But unlike the most touristic European cities, Buenos Aires is HUGE!!! So that we have an idea: Paris has 105 km2 and Barcelona 101 km2. Cities such as Amsterdam, Berlin or London concentrate their attractions in their downtown areas, less than 50 km2. Only the surface of the City of Buenos Aires is of little more than 200 km2, and if we have to add the Greater Buenos Aires, it surpasses the 2600 km2. That is why, to save time and concentrate on the best that this city has to offer, it is always advisable to be part of a well-organized city tour. For this there are also different options, which will depend on the time available and the personal tastes of each tourist. Some of the obligatory visits that Buenos Aires city tours have to offer are the Plaza de Mayo, the Obelisk, 9 de Julio Avenue, the Bosques de Palermo, San Telmo, La Boca...

14.NORTH ZONE: TIGRE AND THE DELTA

Buenos Aires - Tigre and The Delta

WHAT TO DO IN BUENOS AIRES 2019

Outside of the city limits, Greater Buenos Aires has an incredible charm! Many tourists choose to go to Tigre and we can assure you that they are not wrong. Tigre is a city that is just over 30 kilometers north of the city of Buenos Aires. Its main attraction lies in being the gateway to the Paraná Delta, one of the largest deltas in the world. Touring its canals and islands is a must. Visitors can enjoy a completely different landscape from the city: exuberant nature and lots of green in an aquatic labyrinth without equal. But not everything is rustic and natural: this area enjoys very good infrastructure. In the islands of the Delta we will find recreational centers, clubs, hotels, restaurants and private homes that are really very picturesque. And from the port of Tigre you can find river transport to these areas: collective boats and private transports leave practically at any time.

But the Delta is not the only thing Tigre has to offer. We recommend visiting:

Port de Frutos, a huge market of local handicrafts, furniture, accessories, flowers, fruits and gifts that remain on the river.
Park de la Costa, one of the few amusement parks near the city, ideal to go with children.
Water park Aquafan, open only in summer.
The Tigre Art Museum, a beautiful building dating from the early twentieth century and containing an important art collection.
Casino Trilenium, which has almost 2,000 slot machines, 74 gaming tables, several dining areas and a theater.

Note: Having in mind that Tigre is a bit far from the city, and that it is not easy for those who do not know about the fluvial transports that leave from the port to the islands, we recommend tourists to take some of the tours with everything including that allows them to optimize their time, travel the most beautiful del Delta and make a stop in San Isidro, another beautiful city in the Northern Zone of Greater Buenos Aires, explore its historic center and its imposing neogothic cathedral.
