Stay at estancia or in the country side near BA
Posted October 12th, 2010 - 10:42 pm by from Copenhagen, Denmark (Permalink)
Hi all,
I would love to find an estancia or a small farm somewhere outside BA to stay for a few days in November. Nothing fancy, nothing luxurious, just every day life for the people living there. I don't have many days in the country, so can't spend days traveling to it unfortunately, so it should be fairly close to BA. I would love to get to see some beautiful country side nature, perhaps give horse back riding a try and get to know some nice people and the Argentinian culture. Would truly enjoy to help out as much as possible with things that need to be done. Anyone who has got any ideas?
Thanks in advance!
Cheers,
Caroline

Hey Caroline, I don`t know any estancia near Buenos Aires, you have it in Entre Rìos, maybe 200km away from Buenos Aires.-
In Còrdoba you have some estancias too, but they are not next to Buenos Aires city.- You can search on internet or at any information office or turism office.- I hope you are doing all right, Ricardito

Hi Caroline! In Buenos Aires you have lots of "estancias" Outside of the city there are many towns rounded of fields where you can find estancias for "turismo rural"
I recommend the city "San Antonio de Areco" it is very close to Capital Federal ( Bs As ) 100 Km ! and you have lots of options!
Here you have a link to call or email and consult prices and activities:

Best regads and good luck!
