The Tigre Delta covers 21,000 square kilometres adjacent to the 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.
