We visited this "working ranch" in January 2014 with a tour group. Tourists can get a snapshot of what gaucho life is (or was) like - they had horse and carriage rides (after you sign a waiver), a huge BBQ lunch, followed by tango dancers, a singer and a traditional gaucho performance. The finale is a wonderful display of horsemanship.... More

Upon arrival at the Estancia, we were welcomed with delicious empanadas. To continue the day, the Gauchos mount up and begin their display of horsemanship which was amazing. We rode health horses and took take a carriage ride. We strolled around on the farm and then watch the Gauchos prepare a barbecue, called asado al asador. At noon, we sat... More

Our Tour Guide recommended Santa Susana and we were not disappointed: Yes, it is a tourist set up, but so well done and a great value day out. Can only re-iterate all the positive... More

What an excellent decision it was to spend my last day in South America at Estancia Santa Susana. I was picked up from my hotel and after an easy journey arrived at the ranch. We were given a welcoming drink and hot empanadas, then straight over to the horse lines. I was given a sweet and responsive Criollo mare to... More

We knew going into this that it was going to be touristy, but not unlike a luau in Hawaii, it's fun to do once. The bus was about a half hour late picking us up, and then we spent a long time picking up other people. Once we arrived, they were handing out wine and juice and empanadas, which were... More

I wasn´t sure before my trip, if this was my cup of tea. But it was. A beautiful ride out of BUE. Charming farm, estancia with a nice museum. Good program. The food served for lunch was ranch style, home cooking, and it was ok. The show was fun. The best part was the performance of the gauchos handling horses... More
