While there is always a lot to do in Buenos Aires, everyone needs a break from the city every once in a while. Although it may seem like all of the places to see outside of Buenos Aires are far away and/or require a week’s time or more, there are actually a lot of places near the city that are great to see and visit for just a day or weekend!

Only one hour away by train, Tigre is a great way to escape the bustling city for a day. Just 35km north of Buenos Aires, Tigre is one of the biggest deltas in the world, flowing into Rio Del Plata. There are many islands and canals that make Tigre the perfect, quiet day trip away from Buenos Aires. While there, you can take a boat tour, or just explore around the town!

How to get there?

Getting to Tigre is rather easy and cheap. All you have to do is take the Linea Mitre train for around $AR2. It leaves from Retiro station every 10 minutes, or every 20 minutes on the weekends. If you live in a more northern barrio, like Belgrano, you can also hop on at the later stops!

San Isidro

San Isidro is another great option for a day trip. It is easy and cheap to get there, and only takes about 30 minutes by train. Being one of the most affluent towns in all of Latin America, San Isidro is definitely a beautiful, quiet place to spend the day. With old houses, cobblestone streets, and many things to do and see, San Isidro is a great day visit. Just make sure to save a Sunday to visit so that you can go to the Artisan market that is held each week!

How to get there?

Like Tigre, just hop on the Linea Mitre train and get off at the San Isidro stop!

Another option to go for either a day or a weekend is Uruguay! If you’re planning on going for a day trip, then Colonia is the place to go. It’s just 1 hour and 30 minutes by boat, and the old, historical town is a must-see. If you want to spend more time in Uruguay, then you can take a bus from Colonia to Montevideo or even Punta Del Este.

How to get there?

Just book a ferry to Uruguay! One company that you can do this through is Colonia Express, but there are others that go as well!

There are a bunch of estancias outside of Buenos Aires, so just look some up, find what kind you’re looking for, and make a weekend trip out of it!
