Tigre is the staring point for excursions into the lower portion of the vast delta created by the waters of the Parana River. The main branch running past Tigre the Rio Lujan. Here, in Tigre, in 1806, local forces launched the counterattack that drove English invaders back out of BsAs. The town became a very popular weekend spot with many huge rowing clubs in evidence. Long a port town, the Estacion Fluvial Tigre is a transportation hub for the Delta.

    Sarmiento was the first " inventor" and promoter of the Tigre Delta . There are beatifull cronics and history facts in authors starting during the conquest period (1535) to almost 1950 , from Azara, Alcide dÓrbigny,Charles Darwin , Lobodon Garra .

    So you really had a nice time there :-) and could enjoy the beauty of this spot. Brings back happy memories :-) Did you also cross the Parana ? We went there just to sit for a while

    A really enjoyable page with great pics and info on this water paradise area! It looks very inviting, too bad my wife and I did not make it that far. Thanks for the look at least!

    That house in the glass house looks interesting. And that first little sprig of willow reed sounds like a little tiny sprig of mint I planted in my yard, that I swear has now invaded most of Marin County. Great page!

    A work related trip I dare say, Mark? Is this a less tourist frequented spot in Argentina? Still has plenty of interest though.
