From the Parana Delta to Tigre
Tigre is the main gate to the Parana River Delta, as it opens right before our eyes a labyrinth of beauty and nature. Countless islands gather together through means of channels and small inside rivers. No doubt about it, the best way to get into the Parana Delta is by means of aquatic transportation, whether you go for the traditional bus-boat, a sort of unique vintage transportation -most of these crafts date from the 1960s with gorgeous wooden structures- or if you prefer an upscale private yacht to delight yourself under a bright blue sky, the journey into the Delta's majesty and nature is amazing.
Among the main attractions of the area, it's virgin nature stands up in a frame-less picture of colors, sounds and smells not to be found traditionally so close to a huge metropolis such as Buenos Aires.
However, it's not all just about the flowers, trees, animal spices and birds, for the delta beholds an interesting architectural and esthetic approach, in which design is not just about looks but also -and may be essentially about functionality considering the constant tide changes of the river.
Enjoying the spectacle of the sun setting in the horizon is one big treat and must that you should find time for when at the Parana Delta in Buenos Aires.
The food experience by the river is also fantastic. Whether you're enjoying a traditional Argentinean steak or some of the fresh and great quality fishing of the area, you wont go wrong when choosing to combine all your senses to experience the Delta.
Further inside, one of the Delta's hidden treasures: Martin Garc?a Island. The old colonial constructions in the center of the of this beautiful town blend together with other no less beautiful buildings that express the American and French esthetical influence in those sensitive and delightful designs in a very art nouveau style. The island is also home to one of BA's most interesting lighthouses; built in the late years of 1890 it has lighten this island's coasts for more than one hundred years. The building shows clean and strong lines, inside, a snail ladder leads us to the highest point of the island from were we can enjoy an amazing view.
All throughout the area there are fantastic lodging options, from sophisticated spa inns to rooms to let at local's houses, there's a bit for every one to enjoy and find their own spot at the Parana Delta. Email Bob Frassinetti.The Buenos Aires Art
