“Wonderful”
Reviewed December 22, 2013

Rincon de los Oscuros was incredible! Enjoying the beautiful landscape riding horses was the best activity in Mendoza so far. I couldn't wish for a better host than Nicolas and his family! So kind, friendly and very helpful. Even his young children couldn't wait to help and were so excited to have some visitors and chatting about what is going on in the world. Between the two rides we were spoiled with an amazing asado together with some argentinian wine. Absolutely perfect day, if you like riding horses or if you like to explore Mendoza's landscape a little bit different, I highly recommend Nicolas and Rincon de los Oscuros.

Very nice and open-minded family! Muchas Gracias!

“Amazing horseback riding!”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

I went with 7 other students are all studying in Mendoza for the semester. We had a fantastic time horseback riding for the day! We had a delicious, large asado when we took a break for lunch. All of the staff is amazing and we particularly loved writing with the kids that live there too. The area where we rode was beautiful and the horses were great. Perfect place for horseback riding!!

“El Rincon de Los Oscuros”
Reviewed September 16, 2013

We had a great day horse trekking in the snow. We saw six condors, the horses were quiet and incredibly sure footed and the gaucho was friendly and attentive. The lunch and wines were enjoyable

“Rincon de los Oscuros”
Reviewed July 10, 2013

Lo mejor en Potrerillos! No te lo podes perder!! Mi familia y yo agarramos cabalgata de medio dia con asado. Los caballos son una belleza, y muy bien cuidados..Lucia es una divina, y los guias unos muchachos espectaculares y gauchos. Al llegar, nos recibieros sus perritos, moviendo la cola. Luego que Lucia selecciono los caballos segun la experiencia de cada uno, nos fuimos por los cerros y caminos.. HERMOSISIMO !! Al volver, nos esperaba un riquisimo asado a la leña con vino tinto, en el bonito rancho, decorado en madera. .. Ojala pueda volver pronto.

Best in Potrerillos! You cannot miss this !! My family and I grabbed half day horseback ride with BBQ at the end of the ride. The horses are beautiful, and very well taken care of.. Lucia is awesome and the guides great gauchos. Upon arrival, we got welcomed by their puppies, wagging their tails. After Lucia selected the horses for each of us, according to ridding experience, we went over the hills and roads .. BEAUTIFUL!! Upon returning, we were greeted with argentine BBQ, salad, and red wine. The beautiful ranch, warmly decorated with wood. .. Hopefully I can return soon.Best trip EVER!!!!
