El Ombu de Areco Estancia is a traditional ranch located in San Antonio de Areco, at the heart of gaucho (cowboy) country and an easy drive from Buenos Aires. On this tour, spend an entire day at the estancia, with activities including horseback riding, a traditional ‘asado’ barbecue lunch, and a thrilling gaucho show.

I have been traveling in the city of Buenos Aires for nearly 6 months starting in April 2018, for the sole purpose of dancing in the local milongas. I am 39 years old. If you are the kind of person that comes to milongas to sit and watch, have wine or food, my comments do not apply to you, as you are a real tourist, not a dancer. Lo de Celia has 4 milongas per week. Wednesday and Sunday is run by the same people, Saturday is like a nursing home, average age around 80. Friday is run by 2 old ladies. Most milongas in BA are extremely closed to foreigners. In general they take your much hated dollar, euro, or yen, and sit you in the worst possible place, as other regular dancers already know you are an “undesirable” by the location where they see you are seated. Few people will give you cabeceo, perhaps only other foreigners. If I were to come to BA to dance with other foreigners, I would rather stay in Europe. Some European countries are much cheaper than Argentina, and people are friendlier than here. Tango is moving to Europe. Or rather say tango has moved to Europe. Some foreigners come here to dance their own style, by their own rules, throwing kicks and boleos and most argentines would not dance with them, except if they believe they might get some cash, a paid trip, or at least a night in bed. Evidently skill level and floor management in many local milongas is low, as most argentine dancers have never taken serious lessons. The tango people of Buenos Aires, like your money, but they do not like you.

This is an excellent venue for anyone wanting to dance or watch traditional tango the way locals dance it. The floor is small but dancers tend to be considerate of each other and demonstrate good floor craft. The Sunday afternoon mlonga is mostly older people who dance the classic style from the 40s and 50s. There is a small bar menu and light snacks. Restrooms are clean but older. The dance hall is located one flight of stairs up and there is no elevator (at least, none that I could find). If mobility is an issue, you might want to look elsewhere.

Very good on Saturdays in the evening and also on Sunday afternoons. Traditional barrio milonga, mostly from a certain age upwards. Really good music by Erwin.
