Want to spend some time in the Argentine Pampas? If so, this is a great place to visit. Located outside a small town about 100 km from Buenos Aires, you are out of the big city and on a beautiful estate. The price is not too much and you have to opportunity to experience small town Argentina.

We arrived here after spending a week in BA and were immediately greeted with a warm welcome! The hotel is a little rustic but clean with large rooms and comfortable beds. There is a huge pool with a life guard, a sitting room with coffee, tea and snacks all day. The horses, lamas, dogs and cats roaming around make you... More

if you go to Buenos Aires you can't lose this real experience with the Gauchos and the Estancia life. If you can, go more that one day. the perfect is 3 days 2 nights. You can enjoy the Estancia Life, the fauna, birds, fresh air, and the hospitality of the people of San Antonio de Areco. The Cina Cina is... More

We spent 10 days in Argentina, from Buenos Aires to Iguazu Falls - and this little farm was our favorite part of the trip! Relaxing by the pool, taking bike rides into town, riding the horses, having a picnic on the grass. All was brilliant and Manuel is a fantastic host. The town San Antonio De Areco is absolutely gorgeous... More

We got engaged at La Cinacina in October 2010 and had the most wonderful stay. The staff were fantastic helping my now husband plan our engagement! The animals from the horses to the dogs were all part of the family and helped us enjoy our stay (especially Homer & Honey). We made good use of the free bikes they have... More

I visited La Cinacina on an organised Sunday tour from Buenos Aires. The pick up went to plan (although a little later than scheduled) and the group were warmly welcomed at the estancia. It is a friendly place, the food is good and plentiful and the music/dance and gaucho shows were enjoyable. I would recommend this trip. The only negative... More

The estancia, La Cina Cina, was amazing. It was one of the best Buenos Aires day trips that we have done. Located just an hour and a half outside of Buenos Aires, there is a small town called, San Antonio de Areco. It is a sleepy town, steeped in history, estancias (ranches) and gaucho (cowboy) culture. We arrived to La... More

Highly recommended. From BA hotel pickup to the comfortable bus, friendly and understandable tour guides and ultimately the 4-5 hours onsite, the trip was a great one. Wonderful onsite activities and tasty food throughout the day. Give it a shot and have a great time

Very friendly place. Carlitos was a great host and the "empanadas" of the place are phenomenal! (took 3 dozens to Buenos Aires with us) Food was plenty and the shows, horsemanship and dancing, were very enjoyable and good memories. Rode horses, took photos, went on a "sulqui".... I would go back anytime, in fact we visited the place twice!!! the... More
