Discover the charm of the Argentine pampas with a visit to a local estancia (ranch) outside of Buenos Aires. Visit a family workshop that became one of the most important goldsmith museums in the area. Stroll around the grounds and settle into the slower pace of life, enjoy a traditional Asado (BBQ) including the world-renowned Argentine beef.

Dining will be ‘family style’ and you could find yourself sharing with other patrons at the estancia. Live entertainment will be supplied by gauchos in their typical dress, dancing to their unique folkloric music. Following lunch, the fun moves on to an open field where you can admire an impressive display of the gauchos’ skillful abilities on horseback (not possible with heavy rain).
