At USD $100 for a couple, we purchased the full day package at Bonanza Deltaventura (which includes asado and 2 activities). To reach Bonanza, we took the Tren de la Costa to Tigre station and then headed to the River Boat Station (it is in the opposite direction of the Fruit Market). From the river boat station, it takes around an hour by ferry to arrive at Bonanza’s island in the Tigre Delta. In other words, Bonanza is pretty isolated.
Bonanza recommends you arrive no later than 11 at the river station to catch the ferry. There do not appear to be many ferries. So, you arrive at the grounds around noon and about a half hour later, they start the asado (barbecue). The asado has all the typical features and the quality of the food was fine. They charge reasonable prices for wine and other drinks.
Bonanza has the feel of a rustic summer camp. Most of their staff do not speak a word of English. They were, however, friendly. A couple of farm animals roam around and there are a few hammocks and some outside furniture. We didn’t see the inside of the house but that may be reserved for over-nighters. For our two activities, we choose hiking and canoeing. The activities were pleasant but nothing too special. Hiking consisted of a walk around the island. The vistas are what you expect from Bayou-like country. In retrospect, I think I would have chosen horseback riding.
Bonanza appeared to be fairly popular with the locals. Of about ten people, we were the only foreigners there. In sum, the day was a good (albeit long) respite from BA. The ferry rides were cool because it looked like a South American Venice.
