If you are looking for some rest outside of the busy capital Buenos Aires with millions of people, then Tigre is the perfect place to go! This wonderful little town is situated just outside of Buenos Aires, approximately 40 minutes by train. Last weekend the students of AMAUTA Elebaires Spanish School Buenos Aires decided to go and explore Tigre, to discover the relaxing atmosphere outside of Buenos Aires. Tigre offers a lot of nice restaurants, bars and cafes if you are looking for a good meal or a refreshing drink. We went to a restaurant with a terrace and ordered some good red wine and had “asado´s”. Definitely an Argentinean choice to have red wine and asado; the students are quick learners.
After this, we were going on a boat trip through the Tigre Delta. The boat was perfect because it had an open roof, which allowed us to sunbathe and enjoy the great view at the same time. Being out on the open water and seeing the beautiful nature made us feel very relaxed and happy. It was like we were in another world and we enjoyed every minute of it. After the boat trip we decided to have ice cream and we found the perfect gelateria, with lots of ice cream flavours! Everyone chose three flavours of ice cream and we all shared our flavors. I discovered one of my favourite ice cream flavours ever: pistache! I recommend that you try it if you like sweet ice cream flavours =)
At the end of the day, we went to a park, sat down, played some games and watched the sun go down. Satisfied and rested, we took the train back to Buenos Aires. Tigre was awesome, but it did feel like coming home when we got off the train in Buenos Aires.
Tigre and Buenos Aires, we love you both!
