Arriving at our "local cowboy" (gaucho) town "the cradle of argentine tradition” (110km or 68 miles away from the City of Buenos Aires), we'll introduce you to the local people, their uses/customs, visiting old gaucho´s bars and a prestigious silversmith workshop, for about an hour and a half. Estancia: After a 15 minutes drive in a dirt road we will arrive at the historical authentic ranch: with nearly 350 cattle, 80 horses, sheep, crops and a big park surrounding the main family house, which is the quintessence of "the Pampas history".

Raised in a farm in las Pampas de Argentina: San Antonio de Areco. Love to spend everyday in the countryside with friends, horses an nature! Actively participating in the community´s social life (and really enjoying it...), I realized that: The next step should be sharing my passion about our historical town and the cultural legacy of gauchos (also some wonderful beef...) with people around the world!!! And then called this Experience: "Be a Gaucho for a Day" Also a registered tour guide specialized in this experience, happily practicing the gaucho hospitality for the last 8 years. We are also running this Experience with Laura and Juan Manuel: both amazing tour guides specialized in our Gaucho town and Estancias. We were working together in this Experience for the last 5 years, building up a great team!
