Daytrip to Tigre

IES Abroad organized an amazingly relaxing day trip to Tigre for us. We had to pay an additional cost for this one because it was super luxurious! Let me give you the rundown. Tigre is an amazing “suburb” of Buenos Aires. It’s about an hour away from the city (with some traffic), and it’s unlike anything I’d ever seen before! The town lies on the Parana Delta, so houses are built on islands and instead of streets there are streams, streets, and canals! After driving to downtown, we took a water bus (a boat) to Delta Eco Spa where we spent the day. We enjoyed a delicious buffet lunch and afternoon relaxing outside. It was so nice not only to see the Tigre way of life, but also to relax by soaking up the sun and taking a dip in the pool. You can’t do that super easily in the city! Tigre was such a unique place. The lifestyle is quite intriguing. It seems like an “endless summer” there. On our way back into town, nearly every household was outside relaxing, enjoying mate, and waving to people passing by their docks.
