The life at Delta is acuatic, it's a Venezian Jungle, because of forest and Palaces, here instead of buses and transports there are boats, Firemen boat, supermarket boat, public bus boat, etc. There is a spirit floating over the water, remaing in the silence of inhabitants, in the purr of their boats, in the playful look of the countless dogs without race of the islands. The private tours to Tigre I offer are unique and provides secret places that are not given in the standard ones, you can explore here the TOUR OPTIONS.
The Delta of Tigre is in the south part of the argentinean mesopothamy (mesopotamia), one of the few in the world (In greek: Μεσοποταμία, "between rivers", in reference to a land absolutelly sourronded by rivers. As well its enormous size (11.000 square miles, 300 islands, 200 miles lenght), the delta of Tigre stands out because of being the only one who doesn't reach the sea but a river, (The River Plate, the widest of the World (37 miles, yes, 37, of wide). There only a few deltas of a relevant size in the planet, the most known are the Orinoco's and Nilo's.
"The Delta of Tigre is the fastest growing Delta or the world, around 90 yards per year, ready for reach Buenos Aires's coasts in one hundred years, 11.000 square miles of forest crashing against the concrete..."
This magic place deppends constantly of the wind, which faces the huge front of water of the River Plate. When the wind is blows with the stream, you get lack of water, but, when the wind blows against the water, it can delay the flow, so you get floods, this is the "Sudestada", the "southeaster". So, what matters to a visitor, is that this adds charming to the place: The houses are sourrounded by forest or gardens, but always elevated on pilasters.
The Fruit Harbour is a picturesque market at the side of the river, where you can buy handicrafts and of course, fruits and vegetables.
Not-to-miss are Sarmiento´s House (inside the delta, protected in big cristal cube against the hard dampness), the Fruit Harbour and the Museum of Art of Tigre, and almost-floating aristocratic palace which was originally a Casino and today was recovered to share local art usually related with acuatic areas, as Tigre as Boca harbour by example. There also are nice places to have a tea with homemade cakes (it seems to be that all the Aunts of Argentina lives there).

Any colective boat could open the gate of a mistery: The charm of the island, it doesn't matter wich one. To walk between channells across narrow trails of golf-mowed grass is the great dream of those who left the madness of downtown. Usually the chosen trail runs beside of a little stream, that will flow on to the river that surround the island, and that stream is feeded by a smaller one, that is feeded by a trickle an so on, that is the Green Venezia.
