Overview

Travel to the serene Tigre Delta on this 3-hour shore excursion from Buenos Aires. Relax on a catamaran as you float along the lush delta, learning about the community that calls this waterfront their home. The Rio de la Plata's delta, including a visit to the Sarmiento Museum, allows visitors to see a different side of Argentine life far from the urban bustle and sophistication of Buenos Aires.
  • Drive along the coast of the Rio de la Plata on Costanera Avenue
  • See the mansions of San Isidro and the San Isidro Cathedral
  • Explore another aspect of Argentinean life outside of Buenos Aires
  • Enjoy a catamaran ride on the Tigre Delta to see its waterfront homes on stilts

Meet your guide at the cruise port, starting point to be confirmed.

Return Details

Buenos Aires, Argentina

This excursion concludes within a 15-minute taxi ride to the cruise port, in Buenos Aires.

After disembarking from your cruise ship at the port in Buenos Aires, meet your local guide in the morning or the afternoon, depending on your preference. Board a comfortable coach heading out of the city center along Costanera Avenue, bound for San Isidro and the Tigre River Delta.

Visit San Isidro, the town where many wealthy Argentine families fled during the yellow fever epidemic in the 1800s. Its spectacular Gothic cathedral dates back to 1706. Continue on to Tigre, stepping aboard a comfortable catamaran for a 40-minute boat ride departing from the Puerto de Frutas. As you cruise, learn from your guide how local residents conduct their lives on the water.

Visit the home of former Argentine president Domingo Sarmiento and the museum dedicated to his life. See homes built on stilts atop what was once a swamp, but has now been developed into a neighborhood with grass footpaths. View the floating supermarket and the plethora of water taxis, keys to daily life in this town of waterways.

Conclude your excursion by finding your own way back to the cruise port, just a 15-minute taxi ride away (own expense). Make sure you have plenty of time to get back to the port before your ship departs, as this excursion is not covered by our worry-free policy.

I wasn't aware that guide would be speaking in 2 languages i.e. Spanish and English during the tour on the bus. We felt it was said much less in English than in Spanish. Visual and cultural value on land was minimal. I would've prefered to only English speaking group..
