Rio De La Plata, Argentina – January 2020 – A Day on the River

The Rio De La Plata is considered by some as the widest river in the world, at between 30 and 80 miles wide. Others consider it either a bay or estuary. Regardless it is a busy place on a sunny summer day.

The delta beyond the city of Tigre have no roads, but numerous houses and restaurants. Their only way to receive supplies is via the grocery boats.





The boats that take people out to the islands often have to store the larger items on the roof.





Meanwhile a load of bamboo comes to town.





On a day like this there are literally hundreds of sailboats on the water all along the shoreline.





The windsurfers are amazingly fast.






While many just hung out on their boat.






The San Isidro Cathedral and a nice sailboat.





For most of the 30 miles of shoreline from Buenos Aires to Tigre is lined with tall apartment buildings.






The newer sailors in the school sometimes struggle, but stayed upright.





Leaving a nice line of small matching sailboats.





This guy was amazing flying along just above the water.






There are many very shallow areas that give a strange perspective in the middle of the river – such as the people walking seemingly in the middle of the water.





The troubadour boat 🙂






Great lighting, great sailboat.





Where are we – oh yeah – Argentina.





On the narrower part of the river near Tigre there was a mass of various craft.





The far side of the river have large grasses.






The wooden sailboats have a wonderful look.










The Parque de la Costa (Coast Park) has more than 30 rides and attractions.









The return trip had a few more great watercraft.













It was a great day on the Rio De La Plata.
