It's easy to see why El Venado gets such amazing reviews. Everything about this place is magical, from the stunning estancia, to the top notch polo instruction, to the unbelievably warm and welcoming hospitality. While I'd ridden my whole life I arrived at El Venado with NO CLUE about polo. But thanks to the fantastic Fede and juan, by the... More

Fede and Ines the owners of El Venado are truly amazing hosts and wonderful people. From the moment we arrived until after our departure they have genuinely cared about us. Having only been playing polo for a couple of years we were not sure what to expect. I will break it down as follows: polo and polo instruction, accomodations, food... More

Staying at El Venado was the highlight of my trip to South America. Fede and his wife Inés were incredible hosts and I loved every minute of my stay. As a beginner to the game of polo, I thought the level of instruction was perfect and I greatly improved during my week there. Also, the hospitality was top notch. Drinks... More

I packed my bags and flew from California to be steeped in countryside life, with horses, fresh air and open fields. Learning to play polo was one of the primary reasons, of course--but I knew visiting during the winter off season would be slightly more challenging for this. Honestly, I didn't mind at all--I craved quiet time and peace here,... More

The host, Federico Cendoya has a very nice place to learn and play polo, with a very good grass field and an arena field for rainy days. There is a wooden horse too to practice the swing. Among the polo I have a very good stay enjoying "asados" and "picadas".

I chose El Venado after a bit of research as I liked the email responses I was getting directly from the owner Fede. My first impression was borne out by my week at El Venado - a wonderful welcome from Fede and Inés, generous meals and I even had my wine preferences consulted! As a beginner, I benefitted from being... More

El Venado is a Lovely estancia with a family feel to it, thanks to the hospitality and warmth of owners Federico and Ines. Federico & team's experience and patience enable a steep polo Learning curve. In only 3 lessons I went from no experience to managing to hit a ball in canter. It is really a great Experience!

I came to el Venado for several reasons: to escape city life, to immerse myself in a Spanish-speaking culture, and to learn polo for fun. Having never mounted a horse or wielded a mallet before (they say having ski or hockey experience helps) and being a lefty (polo is exclusively a right-handed sport as I discovered shortly after booking my...

I went to El Venado not knowing too much about it but was recommended by a friend. After being there I cannot recommend it enough, it helped me a great deal to learn and improve my game.
