It was a full day trip to the Estancia. We love the horse ride, which was well-managed and safe. Thereafter we had lunch and we were entertained with tango dances. Audience were encouraged to take to the dance floor. This was followed by performances by the horses. Overall, it is a good way to experience the life of the gauchos.

I loved this place. Apart of trying the typical Argentine barbecue I have been able to tried other local specialties like the empanadas which is basically bread with meat. I also practiced horse riding and fortunately was a sunny day. the gaucho's skills also were very interesting

This part was a lot of fun- good food and lots of wine and great entertainment. Perhaps they should rename it as fun bbq experience and not... More

Are there tourists here? YES. Are they all having a fun time? ABSOLUTELY. This visit was one of the highlights of my travel through South America. The folks at this ranch know how to entertain, how to cook, and how to make visitors feel welcome. This was my first trip to Argentina and my English guide offered this day trip... More

This has been a tourist attraction for over 30 years more than a real estancia. The first thing is a welcome empanada and wine, and then like a joust game. Three horsemen run by trying put a stick through a hole. And the. Get a kiss from the ladies that the ring is offered to. To fill the many hours... More
