Bienvenidos to Tigre, Argentina.
Tigre is at the end of one of the lines of the commuter rail from Buenos Aires. They have a very stylish station.
Tigre is known as the gateway to the Parana Delta. This area covers the size of Connecticut, and is made up of hundreds of islands (and no roads). All of the transportation into the delta is via boat.
As a result Tigre is a tourist destination, with many attractions throughout the delta.
We had no particular plans for this day so we wandered around town. There are numerous boat clubs along the Tigre River. In this case, they are across the street, so they have a unique rail system to get their boats to the river.
Many of the clubs have very ornate buildings.
The parilla is on the grill for later!
Where could this guy be going with his load of bamboo boxes?
Why to Puerto De Furtos (the Fruit Port) of course.
The port takes up a number of piers along the river.
Tourist boats are constantly going by.
While across the river are some unique structures.
It is an interesting blend of old and new.
We went looking for fruit, but were disappointed as the entire area has been restored into a tourist market area. Still is was an interesting area, with great photo ops.
On the way back to the rail station we passed by this interestingly decorated building, with American baseball greats of the past.
Tigre is an interesting town, and we look forward to spending more time there and adventure into the delta further.
