Spend today immersing yourself in the life of a working ranch. Observe and take part in various stock-rearing activities with the mainly Hereford and Angus cattle on the ranch. Witness or participate in milking, cattle drives, ear-tagging, and branding - all the day to day activities that a working hacienda performs. Explore the 300 acre property on foot, by bike, or on a horse with a seasoned gaucho at your side. A golf and tennis country club offers optional activity nearby. You can also visit San Antonio de Areco, a picturesque pampas pueblo with a small Gaucho museum, silversmiths, wood workshops, and a little chocolate factory. The day is free to spend as you like.

Other activities available at special request are folk dances and horse-back skills events such as sortija races, lassoing, and hog-tying.

Kate was great to work with in the planning stage. She was prompt, helpful, and efficient. Our tour guide, Edwin, was knowledgeable and passionate. We were very happy to have traveled with Adventure Life, it made the trip easy and a true pleasure. We could concentrate on enjoying the experience rather than the details of travel.
