Its green cars look as if they had just been painted. Equipped with air-conditioning and bilingual stewardesses, its seats invite travelers to sit down and look through the large windows onto the sceneries outside. Tren de la Costa
is one of the small luxuries Buenos Aires
has. It allows us to see the Northern zone in a different way, always bordering the Río de la Plata
The ride is an excursion itself to get away from the daily rhythm of the city
, especially if we take into account the so many attractions hidden at every station, in a tour that leaves from Vicente López and ends in Tigre
, on the shores of the beautiful and mystic delta. From there, it is possible to take some ferry to get deep into the labyrinthine islands.
Going back to Tren de la Costa
: each station has its own identity.
Bear in mind: The Tren de la Costa ride is ideal to be done on one entire day. Leaving early from Maipú station, some of the stations mentioned above may be visited during the journey, until visitors finally get to Tigre. At noon, they can enjoy some typical dish at some steak house or restaurant before they get on a ferry or a catamaran to see the islands from the water. This is a one-day tour that is completed as visitors go back to the starting point and take the train again, from where they will certainly get off feeling a different person.
