“The Real Deal”
Reviewed October 14, 2012

As an American living in Buenos Aires, I was a bit weary to take my sister, who was visiting from the US, to what I thought would be at least somewhat of a tourist trap. Boy I could not have been more wrong! As polo and riding novices, Gaston was incredibly patient with us and really made the lesson fun. If you're looking for a great day trip from Buenos Aires, friendly, knowledgable people, lovely grounds and an authentic polo experience, then look no further than Puesto Viejo. I'll surely be coming back with all my future visitors as it is truly a unique and wonderful experience.

“Wonderfull experience”
Reviewed October 9, 2012

If you have a whole day to spare in Buenos Aires definitely a must do.
We had a lovely day in this very special polo club with great atmosphere. Nice people, good lunch and beautiful setting with around 200 horses.
We came with two a little more experienced riders and two total beginners and at the end of the day all played a small match of Polo against each other.
We definitely recommend this experience and Gaston our guide and coach.
Thanks for the great day!

“Fun and unique experience...”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

It was a great day from the start. The weather was lovely and I took it as a good sign when Gaston and I met exactly as we discussed despite the adjustments we had to make. The drive wasn't too long and the Estancia is a lovely escape from the bustle of the city. It is a simple enclave, designed just like an estancia from the outside, but with cozy and warm features inside. The people I met and mostly interacted with (Holly, Angie, & Lee) were very kind and welcoming. The lunch was overall, the best meal I had in Argentina. Gaston's a very patient instructor and our lesson was good fun. He explained a lot about polo which helped a bit while I watched the matches. I didn't think I would enjoy it as much (since it's rather an intimidating sport), but I really did. When my travels take me back, I will definitely come around again.

“A gorgeous day in the BA countryside experiencing polo”
Reviewed September 8, 2012

You cannot turn down this opportunity to experience polo in Argentina. Gaston is utterly charming; genuinely kind, patient, instructive and informative ( &not just about polo!).
Everything was so easy from beginning to end, so thank you to ALL the staff who made the day so lovely ( both front of house and beyond- kitchen staff, grooms included). We had instruction both in the morning and afternoon interrupted by a wonderful lunch where it would have been SO easy to finish the bottle but I knew I had to get back on the horse!
You 're in utterly safe hands with Gaston on the polo field (and the drive to & from BsAs) Thank you for your enthusiasm and encouragement as I assertively missed 90% of my attempts! The chat certainly gets going with maté

Gracias a todos
