Going to the “Tigre”

What is the “Tigre”? It is actually outside the city, but it’s worth visiting. Tigre is a town famous for its wonderful delta. So, if you would like to get rid of the urban stress, the best thing to do is to buy a train ticket and go to Tigre. The delta is also the starting point to the Paraná Delta as it is connected with it by rivers and streams.

Meeting Gauchos

Dressed up like the Gauchos, young and old locals perform the country dance named chacareras at the Fería de Mataderos. If you would like to get in touch with local culture or you are interested in Argentine traditions, getting to the Fería de Mataderos is the best thing to do.
