Wasn't sure I wanted to include an estancia in my trip to Buenos Aires, because my sense was that they tended to be mostly touristy cheesiness. This place was a pleasant surprise. Yes, there's a gaucho show, and it's designed to impress the tourists, but it's also pretty amazing and nicely done. The horseback riding was well-led and easy to do (even with no riding experience). The grounds are a nice place for a relaxing walk or just some chill time in the country (you're on a farm that feels far from the city, though the distance is fairly close). The food was great and ample.
Getting there was more of an adventure than expected, because the bus from B.A. broke down for a couple of hours. With some help from other visitors, was able to reach the estancia by phone, and they were very gracious about keeping our place for lunch despite the very late arrival. The taxi is found around the corner from the bus station (which is on the main highway and not in town), and they won't be able to take you all the way to the estancia if it's been rainy, but in that case a 4-wheel drive vehicle will meet you at the intersection where the taxi will drop you off. (Consider it all part of the adventure.)
Didn't spend the night, but that looked like an attractive option.
