fREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
We started with a drive through San Isidro, a cute little town not far from Buenos Aires. Then we took a water taxi to an island in the Delta. We had a lovely lunch and then spent the rest of the afternoon laying around in hammocks, petting dogs and cats, relaxing by (or in!) the pool and kayaking. It was a very chill day and so fun to go to a different part of Argentina for a relaxing low-key day. Don't forget bug spray and sunscreen!
Relaxing day starting with a quick drive through San Iisdro then on to the river front to grab a water taxi to one of the islands. We had lunch and then relaxed in the hammocks and by the pool. Very lovely place in a unique part of Buenos Aires.
I loved this excursion! Nice to bike around part of the city I had not yet seen. Alex is a terrific guide, and his nephew kept us safe along the streets. The boat tour was beautiful, as was the island to which Alex took us. We enjoyed the leisurely lunch there, a grand former monastery he took us to for enjoyable views, the pool at the site and a delicious lunch (especially the dulce de leche dessert).
