San Isidro Sailboat Tour
A beautiful day sailing along the coast of Rio da la Plata.
If the heat and traffic of the city are becoming a nuisance than book a sailboat tour of Rio de la Plata. We booked the tour through the Argentinean travel agency Argentina Go, and the total cost of the tour was $30 USD. The tour does not include transportation to or from the port of San Isidro, which is a $26 USD taxi ride from Palermo round trip.
I was a little skeptical of the tour when we arrived at our meeting point, a deserted parking lot in front of a few closed shops. The captain of our sailboat looked like a bum, in old ratty clothes and surrounded by feral dogs. We could hardly understand him when he spoke; his voice was raspy and faint. We followed him to a modest looking sailboat tied to the end of the dock, and boarded for a four hour tour. We thought the tour was going to take us along the coast of the city of Buenos Aires. We were excited to get some great, close-up photos of the city, but we didnít even come close to Buenos Aires. We stayed in the waters of Rio de la Delta, near the marshy, uninhabited islands.
The weather was perfect for a boat ride. It was in the high 70ís or low
80ís and partly cloudy. The wind from the water cooled you off, but it
wasnít chilly. We spent four relaxing hours just enjoying nature, there
were no sounds of traffic, drums in the park or people hollering at each
other as we experience in our Palermo apartment.
