Personal experiences & helpfull hints, Buenos Aires: 85 reviews and 65 photos
Favorite thing: We never got very close to the Rio de la Plata during our city tours, except for La Boca during our final afternoon. This is because the riverfront along the west bank of the river has a large buffer zone of streets, railway tracks and green zones between the water and the built-up Recoleta and Palermo districts.
However, as we flew out of BA from Jorge Newbery Airport, for our internal trips in Argentina, we had a good aerial view of this very wide waterway. Fed by the mighty Parana and Uruguay Rivers, the Rio de la Plata is a light chocolate brown colour, not very attractive for swimming at all. Further out, from the air you can see where the clear waters of the Atlantic swirl in conflict with the brown river waters.
This photo was taken from the departure level of Jorge Newbery, showing the sea wall that runs along the river here. It was a grey and humid day, but several people were fishing off the wall using very long rods, catching who knows what?
