    Estancia Santa Susana
    Stop: 8 hours - Admission included
    Around 9.30 am, depart Buenos Aires in a comfortable bus for the scenic ride of 2 hours through the Argentine pampas (plains) to Estancia Santa Susana, located in Los Cardales. When you arrive at this traditional estancia (ranch), your day of gaucho fun begins with a friendly welcome reception at the ranch pub with empanadas and wine. Take a tour to some of Santa Susana’s attractions, including its museum and church, before enjoying a horse-drawn carriage ride or going horseback riding to explore the grounds of the ranch. Around 1 pm, tuck into a delicious parrillada (Argentina BBQ), lunch of grilled specialties such as sausages and chicken, accompanied by salad and beverages (red and white wine, soda, water and coffee). Then sip on a glass of mate (an Argentine drink of yerba mate leaves steeped in hot water) and finish with a pastelito (pastry)! During lunch, be entertained by a tango and folk show of classical music and dance, and watch an exciting boleadoras show, with throwing weapons used by gauchos. When you’re done eating, the real entertainment begins as you watch the gauchos show off their incredible ranch skills. Be impressed by a ring race (known as la sortija), animal herding and the cuadreras race, a typical gaucho game. When your day of fun on the ranch is over, you’ll be driven back to Buenos Aires and dropped-off at a central location around 18pm.

A pleasant day spent at Santa Susanna Gaucho Ranch. Brilliant display of horsemanship. The lunch was excellent and the quality/quantity superb. Lunchtime entertainment was an added bonus with the argentine tango being performed a. o. All in all a good outing.
