Full Day Traditional Gaucho Party 9:30 AM

Depart the hotel, to visit a traditional Estancia, the equivalent of a large ranch, devoted mainly to agriculture, but also to cattle and breeding horses. Most ranches have a main house and straw-roofed construction where the dining-room and a traditional general store are located. The general store, called the "pulperia" is a gathering point for the gauchos at sunset. After a tour of the ranch, a typical Argentine barbecue will be served including grilled beef, chicken, pork sausages, salads, dessert and coffee. After lunch, enjoy a folklore show with live music, dancing and a tango demonstration, followed by "cuadreras" and ring races where gauchos show their riding skills. For those willing to participate in the traditional activities there are horses and "sulkies" to go around the ranch. Arriving back to Buenos Aires you have the option to be dropped off at Plaza San Martin to browse nearby shops and restaurants or continue to your hotel for drop-off.

Pick-up will be between 9:00 am and 9:30 am from the front desk of the hotel. Approximate tour duration is 8 hours.
