Provincia de Buenos Aires Things to Do: 50 reviews and 86 photos

A fun thing to do in the Buenos Aires area is to go on a gaucho experience on a ranch. Most major hotels or tourist agencies can set this up. One of the of the best known ranches, or estancias turisticas is called Don Silvano's and is located about 60 kilometers west of the city near San Antonio de Areco. As any American who has visited might suggest, Buenos Aires is a bit like New York, a bit like Paris, and yet has a style all its own. And, just outside the city, it starts to look a little like Wyoming. Well, the gaucho experience is a chance to experience the part that is like Wyoming (only with a Spanish flair). You can ride horses, watch a cowboy show, watch and participate in dances, and have a great bbq lunch, and most of the people there seem to be South American, not North American, so it gives you even more of the interesting local experience.
