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

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.

Upon arrival from a more than one hour coaster ride from Buenos Aires , we were greeted with welcome drinks (red/white wine and juices ) and meat empanadas. We are to spend about 2 hours there to enjoy nature , visit the museum which displays relics from earlier times , and see how the gauchos/cowboys live their way of life.... More
