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

After a bus ride through the country to the ranch, we were greeting with a drink (wine, juice, etc) and a delicious empanada (and were told to come back if we wanted more of either). Then it was touring the house/museum, taking a carriage ride or horseback ride. I opted for the carriage and house and would have gone for... More

Our day didn't start well with the Tangol agency and didn't improve. We had to meet at a pick up point at a set time. Bus was 45 min late and we had to walk a considerable distance through traffic to eventually get to the bus. Bus trip was fine, dropping half passengers off at a zoo en route. Arrival... More

It was a great experience to visit the ranch 80kms north of Buenos Aires. We got the experience to ride a horse, a great banquet for a lunch with barbecued meats and a small museum showing how people lived in the ranches. Great to see some cowboys as well.

Friendly welcome by the owner and the gauchos with a welcome drink and empanadas while enjoying the great view of the Santa Susana ranch. The eucalyptus trees make you feel @home in Oz. We enjoyed the great runch BBQ & wine and the tango show/dance. A relaxing day while watching the horses and cows.

When we got there we thought we had fallen into yet another tourist trap, but the day turned out really well. We got to ride horses and have a lovely lunch on a lot of bife and very good wine. We watched a show with a lot of singing and the gauchos invited people to dance, so a real fiesta... More
