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

Sort of thing the Old Girl always seems to want to see. As it goes I guess it is as good as any graveyard,,, Of course South American countrys make normal of death. A lovely city with so much to see and I guess this is just one of them

This is a huge cemetery and one can wander for hours looking at the various tomb designs. Notable tombs are not easy to find, so if you have certain tombs on your list to see, make sure you do one or more of the following: - Get a map from the front office - Ask other visitors where the tomb is - Follow the crowds / guided tours Entry to the cemetery is free, and a tour is not necessary, but if you get a guided tour, you will hear the history of the important people buried there. Having visited the cemetery in Chile last year, I didn't want to spend too long in here, so I did not go on a tour. That said, it was difficult to find specific tombs on my own, even with the map. I ended up following a tour group to Eva's resting place, housed in the Duarte family tomb. It was NOT the large, ornate mausoleum that I'd been looking for. Rather, it is an average-sized tomb tightly wedged between two other average-sized tombs in a narrow cemetery isle. Engraved plaques for Eva and her family members line both sides of the tomb. Flowers adorn the shallow shelf in the center of the frame. It was crowded here with 2 large tour groups and a few individuals crammed into the narrow isle. Expect to wait a good 20 minutes or more for your turn to take a picture of / in front of the tomb. *The tomb itself does not contain information about Eva Peron's life. If you are unfamiliar with her history, I recommend first visiting: - The Evita Museum (open Tues to Sun, 11am - 7pm) near Parque 3 de Febrero and/or - La Casa Rosada (open ONLY on Saturdays with online appointment). Recoleta Cemetery is very beautiful, and if you've never been to a cemetery of mausoleums, you should make it a point to at least stop in. This is a good activity to do on a Sunday, Monday, or holiday when many other sites are closed. Personally, I only spent about 35 minutes here because it's similar to the cemetery in Chile and there were other things I wanted to see. In the warmer months, it is rather warm because there isn't any shade and the sun mercilessly beats down on its victims below. Bring water and wear a hat / sunscreen.

A visit to the cemetery where Eva Peron is buried the graves of her family is a must. Their tend to be huge crowds and getting up close may prove difficult but visiting this area will bring back the memories of Evita the musical. it is much easier to see the family tomb. Worth a visit and should be included as part of a tour.

The must-see tomb in Buenos Aires’ must-see cemetery, La Recoleta, is Eva Peron’s tomb. You can find it on your own using a directory near the main gate, by asking for directions or simply by following a group of tourists, who inevitably will stop at Evita’s tomb. Touring this complex cemetery with a guide, however, is the best way. The tomb is along a tiny alley of sorts, notable only for the crush of people photographing it. It does not say “Peron,” but “Duarte,” Evita’s maiden name. Her husband, the dictator Juan Peron, is buried elsewhere. There are plaques referencing Evita on the tomb’s exterior. TIP: — Read about Evita before you go. I’m told some in Argentina think of her as the wife of a repressive dictator, while many others revere her for empowering women and the poor. —Think, too, about the events that brought her remains here. Once, a tomb larger than the Statue of Liberty was planned for her. Those plans were abandoned after Peron was overthrown and fled the country. At one point, Evita’s remains went missing for 16 years. Later, Peron and his third wife, Isabel, kept the corpse in their dining room in Spain. Today, Evita’s body is reportedly kept two levels under the street-level tomb to discourage theft.

Advice - at the cemetery entrance, look on the map for the Duerte family tomb, it's not highlighted. Or follow the crowds. Or go to the mdiddle and turn left. Or it's just back in from the Southern edge of the site. Not particularly interesting architecturally; but usually flowers and read the plaques. Not partic
