The Tigre Delta covers 21,000 square kilometres, adjacent to Buenos Aires city. Made up of over 5,000 waterways, the islands are inhabited by 3,000 people, working mainly to supply the pulp, paper and plywood industries. Its islands and waterways are a fascinating place to visit both for the wildlife and pretty houses.
