Don Torcuato is a city in Tigre Partido Buenos Aires Province, Argentina which forms part of the Greater Buenos Aires conurbation. It is named after Marcelo Torcuato de Alvear, ex-President of Argentina, as he had his ranch and residency there. Most of the streets are named after his immediate family and his government staff.

It has a train station on the Belgrano North line of the Ferrocarril General Manuel Belgrano with direct connection to Buenos Aires, and also the nearby Pascual Palazzo highway, part of the Pan-American Highway. It also had a general aviation airfield (closed in January 2006) of the same name (Don Torcuato - ICAO:SADD)
