A pleasant break away from the frenzy of Buenos Aires, can be had in the town of Tigre. This town, favoured by the Portenos, is situated on an island in the delta of the Parana river, 30 kilometres from the city. Trains depart regularly for Tigre from the Retiro Station in Buenos Aires and the trip takes about one hour. The focal point of the town is centered around the Estacion Fluvial, where the ships are loaded and unloaded. The town has somewhat lost its elegance, however the area is still appealing for walks and strolls. Regattas are held in March and November.
