I had the pleasure of an overnight stay at El Ombu. Luckily, I had good weather which is not at all guaranteed in June. It was chilly at night, but there are wood burning fireplaces all over and wood burning stoves in the guest rooms....More
An old Estancia with Italian heritage and architecture. The welcome and the staff are also brilliant at "old fashioned great service".. they quickly remember your name and preferences and anticipate your needs well.
The Gaucho element was amazing, such harmony with the horses and as...More
We had carried out lots of research to make sure our planned estancia trip was the correct one. This is a first class place. Everything was amazing and well done. The welcome drinks and empanadas; the horse riding in open country for around an hour;...More
The estancia is a place from heaven. The experience is not to be matched to anything. The place, the food, the nature, the colors, the gauchos, the entertainment, the peace, the horses and the horsebackriding were out of this world. This is one thing i...More
Last minute we booked this trip from Buenos Aires and the host of the Estancia was so nice to let us join the next day if we paid cash. We had a driver who took us there, he picked us up at our hotel He...More
A bit of a drive out of Buenos Aires but en-route our guide entertained us with the story of mystical powers mate. The dried leaves of the yerba mate are placed in a hollow gourd and hot water is added. The drink is then sipped...More
The trip to El Ombu was exciting as we navigated mud fields to reach the estancia, which exceeded all of our expectations. It was an authentic and rustic experience in a gorgeous setting.
We rode twice a day and our favorite time out of the...More
We booked a day trip to this estancia through Viator and had a great day. We could have skipped the visit to the town, but the ranch itself is beautiful. The owner's son welcomed each of us personally and everyone was warm and helpful. You...More
This place is absolutely beautiful. The staff were welcoming and treated you as a visitor, not a cash carrying tourist. The food was outstanding and served in a lovely setting. I was able to do a horse ride prior to lunch, and the horses were...More

We had rented an apartment and they picked us up at our door. We were in automobile about2 hours. The driver explained the countryside. We then transferred to a ranch guide. We saw the ranch by horseback ( you had the option of a carriage if you didn't want to ride). We literally were there from morning until dark. We saw every aspect, you could even milk a cow. Let us have freedom to wander on our own. Had tea in afternoon. Lunch was specular. Everything raised on farm. You could stay overnight if desired. An extra ordinary experience. However, it was an exhausting day if you took advantage of all that was offered. A day I'll always remember. The Gringo's were the best. Especially the one with the "Horse demonstration.."
A very memorable experience..also very personable very small groups.
