Premium Tigre Delta and San Isidro Tour from Buenos Aires

93 reviews
Swap the busy streets of Buenos Aires for the waterways of the Tigre River Delta on a day trip that’s ideal for first-time visitors. You’ll see a more provincial side of the region as you explore the cobbled streets of San Isidro. Plus, you'll escape the crowds on land during a canal cruise on the delta.
US$79.00 per adult

There's really not much to do in Buenos Aires on a Monday night except go to La Bomba Tiempo drum show at the Konex Center. It is wildly popular and often sells out before the show. I'd read about the visual and catchy percussion drum show and the generally fun vibe of this event, but I wasn't really that impressed and we ended up leaving shortly after we got there. The Konex Center isn't really near anything. It's a 15 - 25min cab ride away from anywhere you're likely to be coming from. The area isn't necessarily dangerous, but it's not a safe zone for tourists. I wouldn't walk there. The dress code and environment is very casual here. A skip-the-line ticket was around $15 for the show from 7pm - 10pm. Mondays only. I think it's a cool show and probably worth seeing under normal circumstances, but a few things put a damper on our experience. I'd bought tickets online ahead of time since I'd learned that the entrance line is insanely long (it is), and the tickets usually sell out (they did). But we still got shuffled around to a few different lines as there seemed to be disagreement among the staff as to whether or not we were entitled to use the shorter pre-ticketed line. The online tickets DO include "fast pass", which is still a line, but is shorter than the general ticket line, but the lines outside were so crowded and disorganized, it was utter chaos. Security checks inside bags and pats down visitors, so that is part of the reason it takes so long to enter. Secondly, it was raining. It seems that this is primarily an outdoor event where people stand in front of the stage in a large open "arena" of sorts, Since it was raining, the event was moved indoors inside a large open room with a stage, but nowhere near large enough to accommodate the number of people already standing inside, let alone the hundreds more outside, who were still waiting to enter. People were literally jammed in there, body to body. There was no room to move or breathe. Forget about dancing. There was also no way to crowd into the already-packed room, so we stood on tiptoe at the entrance and tried to peer over the multitude of bobbing heads, waving arms, and raised cellphones, which was impossible. Our view of the giant TV screens to the sides of the stage was obstructed by speakers and audio equipment fanning around the back of the room. So the visual aspect of the show was already lacking, and that's half the show. Unless you're REALLY into percussion rhythms. Outside the showroom, it was ridiculously crowded as well. 20+ minute lines for the women's restroom. Massive, crowds thronging around the beer counters. No other drinks were available. Food was not sold there. There was nowhere inside the complex to sit or get away from the predominantly bohemian, pot-smoking, no-deodorant wearing crowds. If it hadn't been raining, and both the indoor and outdoor stages had been used, there might have been more room to walk, bounce along with the tempos, or even talk to nearby people. But the rainy weather precluded any of those conditions, and so I quickly got bored, threw in the towel, and left. Everyone there seemed to be having a great time, so maybe I'm just too old to enjoy this kind of event . . . But if you're thinking of going, my advice would be to go with a group, get tickets online ahead of time, and show up before 7pm, locked and loaded, having both eaten dinner and shotgunned an obscene amount of alcohol to power through this super fun concert.

I didn't know people get crazy on every Monday evening. It was such a great experience. Lots of drum music. Tons of people. Great place to get drunk too. :)

Highly Highly recommend if you can find a ticket. Packed venue with a line around several blocks. Drinks inside are also insanely cheap. Very similar to the Brazilian drum shows in Rio

You truly feel the essence of Buenos Aires as you stand in an outside arena as a troupe of talented musicians wow you for two hours. The energy in the air is like no other, as you're surrounded by locals and tourists banding and bonding together to add to the excitement. It's not to be missed, but you can only catch this show on Mondays, so plan in advance.
