This small, but beautiful, corner of a 3000-acre farm provides a window into life in the Pampas and the world of gauchos. The farm is large enough that it can welcome hundreds of visitors without the feeling of being cramped. The food is an all-you-can-eat, superb, typical "parrillada" with beef, sausages and morcilla (blood sausage) washed down with very good... More

If you want a day outside of Buenos Aires with tons of tourists, this is it. You'll see a very short but good tango demonstration, an interesting horse show, and get more food, and it's good steak, chicken, salads, beer and wine, than you can possibly eat. There's a gift shop on the premises. This is billed as a gaucho... More

Don't think this is going to be a cute little gaucho-ranch just for you. I'm betting this ranch hadn't gone any ranching in 20 years. There were 500 people there if there were 10, from over 20 countries. Assembled in a huge rustic building we were served barbecued beef, chicken, sausage and blood sausage with done family style salads. The... More

Santa Susanna probably isn't,terribly authentic as Estancias go but the small team of Gauchos,dancers,musicians and staff work extremely hard to give you a good time and in our case with great success. The day was well planned with horse or coach riding and Tango,Salsa dancing and a great Gaucho show. The food is both excellent. and plentiful and the staff... More

This is not what I wanted to do - had wanted to go to San Antoinio de Areco. Travel guide did not listen. However it was a nice place. Great for kids, not so much for adults. Gets you out of town for a day. Ride horses, wagons, eat tons of food, tango show and great gaucho show at end.... More

First we went by bus through the whole city to gather all the people going to the same estancia, it took about an hour and we were about 40 people. After an hour we arrived at the estancia where we were greeted with drinks and empanadas. But we were not the only ones there, about couple of hundreds of other... More

We traveled outside of Buenos Aires to visit a "typical" gaucho ranch. We were greeted at the entrance with empanadas (the best we had on our entire trip) and a glass of wine. There were horses to ride or a wagon to ride in for a short tour around the ranch. There is a typical house which is furnished for... More

OK, so Santa Susana gaucho ranch is for tourists and not a working ranch. It's what this 1st time visitor expected while in Argentina. We were given delicious hot empanadas upon arrival. Horseback or carriage rides, gauchos showing off cowboy skills, gauchos dancing, Spanish singing, tango dancing, and wonderful banquet with all kinds of barbequed meats made up the rest... More
