The Pampas

Considered the home of the gaucho, the Pampas are dotted with vast family-owned cattle ranches. Polo is the national game here and is the location for the most important tournaments during the season.

The gaucho is to the Argentine Pampas what the cowboy is to the American west or the stockman to the Australian outback, a figure of almost mythical proportions who helped to forge the country’s cattle-breeding heritage. The skills of the gaucho, his horsemanship and the tools of his trade are still well honoured and revered today on the Pampas.

The estancias themselves are usually family-run farms handed down through numerous generations. A stay at one of these ranches offers a unique glimpse into traditional Argentine life in the country. Many of the province of Buenos Aires’ most beautiful estancias are also home to the country’s finest polo players. Spend the day riding out with the gauchos, take a drive in a horse-drawn carriage down tree-lined avenues through the main park and enjoy exquisitely-prepared local food and wine with charming hosts.
