Owner description: ***BEST VALUE: Puesto Viejo Polo Day is the complete Argentine experience! ANYONE is welcome to give POLO a shot, from inexperienced riders to those who want to work on becoming a pro! We are located just outside of Buenos Aires in the beautiful Argentine countryside (45 minutes). PRIVATE PICK UP AND DROP OFF FROM AND TO YOUR HOTEL IS INCLUDED. Our professional polo instructor is great with ALL ability levels and speaks English and Spanish. This opportunity allows visitors to learn about and experience a great sport, as well as enjoy a traditional 3-course lunch with a complimenting Argentine Malbec wine. During our polo season,* you may have the chance to watch a polo match on one of the six polo fields and play in a mini match yourself! Bring your swimsuit and go for a swim in our gorgeous infinity pool to cool off after your polo day, or even walk or bike around the property to see phenomenal scenery and wildlife, like otters, burrowing owls, chimangos, etc. Puesto Viejo Polo Days run ALL year long. We can arrange GROUP or INDIVIDUAL polo days, including CORPORATE events around our all inclusive Argentine experience! We have 240 acres. We are KID/FAMILY/PET friendly and have WIFI, a BAR and LOUNGE in our hotel! *The Argentine polo season runs from September-May.

“A wonderful day in the countryside”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2013

My partner and I did the polo day last weekend and it was a fantastic experience. We wanted to do something unique and a little bit adventurous whilst in Argentina (I’d never ridden a horse before) and this ended up being the perfect choice. We chose Puesto Viejo over some of the other polo days that are around because it seemed less “commercial” and, being a fairly new venture, we thought we would get a great service and be welcomed by the staff. That is exactly what happened. Gaston was a fun host, clearly passionate about polo and horses, chatting to us all day about various topics and making us feel totally at home on the estate. We met a few of the hotel guests while relaxing on the property and watching a polo match. One of the staff volunteered to join us to make up a group of 4 so we could play a mini match towards the end of the day. The horses were beautiful and seemed very well cared for. Enjoying the pool and the grounds was very relaxing during our 90 minute down-time after lunch. All combined, this was definitely an experience we will remember and recommend to others.

“Really good fun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2013

We were looking round for something to do for a day out of BA when we came across this place. It turned out to be an excellent all round experience for all of us. Great facilities, good tuition, lovely setting and a chance to play polo - I couldn' t believe my luck to have hit upon it. We all agreed that it was great fun and as my son insisted on saying "epic". The food was very tasty and we felt welcomed and looked after throughout our day. I would highly recommend it.

“Best day in Argentina”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2013

Puesto Viejo Polo Day was my best experience in Argentina. Thanks to the staff at the estancia and their beautiful horses. Gaston is an amazing teacher with a lot of patience and understanding. He makes the day extra special and fun. If at all possible I would be staying at the estancia (as they have a lovely accommodation too) much longer than one day as it was the most fun, fulfilling and memorable day. I would recommend this estancia over any other places in Argentina.

“The Unexpected Highlight”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 4, 2013

My day at Puesto Viejo was the most fun I had on my trip to one of the most enjoyable cities in the world. The estate is gorgeous, the hosts more than welcoming, and the instruction superb. I'd only ridden a horse once before, but after a short tutorial, my group and I were having a ball. I would highly recommend this experience to families, solo travelers, or groups.

“Learn to play polo in a day! No experience required..”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 29, 2013

Puesto Viejo's "polo day" offering is a unique combination of excercise, fun, excitement and a challenge, all set in the beautiful surroundings of an Argentine estancia, its amazing... really !! Close to BA and the international airport, the estancia has luxurious amenities such as a swimming pool ( to cool-off in after chukkas..phew ) and carefully prepared, typical Argentine food and hospitality. Previous riding experience is not required, as we found out, indeed those of us who had not ridden a horse before took to the sport more quickly than the accomplished riders amongst us...something to do with having no inhibitions ! The instructors, Chino and Gaston were very patient, speaking both English and Spanish and the horses were calm and patient too! After our instruction we watched a full-on polo game from the clubhouse, so got a feel for the speed and skillful nature of the sport, overall a great experience, not to be missed on an Argentine trip.
