Places in Buenos Aires & Around
Tigre & the Delta
The city of Tigre (35km north of BA) and the surrounding delta region is one of the most popular weekend getaways for weary porteños. Latte-colored waters – rich with iron from the jungle streams flowing from inland South America – will hardly remind you of a blue paradise, but there are hidden gems in this marshy region.
About 22km north of Buenos Aires is peaceful and residential San Isidro, a charming suburb of cobblestone streets lined with some luxurious mansions, as well as more-modest houses. The historic center is at Plaza Mitre with its beautiful neo-Gothic cathedral; on weekends the area buzzes with a crafts fair. There’s a tourist office near the plaza.
