Yes my friends, our first day in Buenos Aires will be busy, we will have one day to see a huge urban centre and one of the most fascinating cities in South America, so I was thinking, why not having a cool and deserved rest in a gaucho farm where you can enjoy the nature, to learn about this interesting cowboy culture and taste the best barbecue of your life???
We will go to a place that you never heard...there are many Estancias all around Buenos Aires...San Antonio de Areco or Campana but NO WAY...we are not going to places where tourists go...WE ARE TRAVELLERS!!! That is a different thing...With me you are not a tourist, you are not a GRINGO...with me and my team we take you WHERE PEOPLE ARE, so you will be part of local life.
The name of our little secret is Chascomus...a little village south of Buenos City with an untouched historical and spanish colonial center bathed by one of the beautiful and huge lagoons formed by rain water, underground springs and not so far from the main Parana River, we will had south and see the scenic Pampa Region. We will have the whole day to explore the town and enter in a countryside world of a gaucho farm called LA ALAMEDA.
Once we get there our lives will be transfered to our last century but with lots of style...a comfort of a big house, a large field where our eyes loose sight...animals everywhere...it is like being in a different Texas, or in the aussie outback or very faraway farms of Spain and with all this THE GREAT LIFE STYLE OF A GAUCHO PERSON! We will explore the nature in the water, in pleasant walks in the grasslands, we will see the gaucho work and we will try their food, and wow, get prepared to have a STOMACH ORGASM (if I dare to say - but be sure that Marcone and I will be your guides but way more important than this we will be your friends). One day that we will never forget in our lives and for generations and generations I am sure that you will always recommend.
Okay now you must know a little bit about the GAUCHO WAY OF LIFE...The gaucho land is called Pampa, and the Pampa Region holds the south of Brasil mostly concentrated in Rio Grande do Sul State, all over Uruguay and a big part of Argentina mostly in the area of Buenos Aires, this is a huge rural area where they still keep very old traditions and we are going to experience all of it.
Okay, here we are...to get to Chascomus will take about 1:20 minutes...the best farms are not so close to the city but it belongs to what we call greater Buenos Aires, it will require a little sacrifice, we will start as earlier as possible, most of the activities will happen between 12:00 pm and 14 pm, before this time and after this time we will be free to do what we want, river activities, pool area, a little hiking or simply chill out in the nature. Do not forget that we will need some time to see the city which is very old, historical and important to the argentinean national heritage. Lunch, pool area and the show will be included. It will be a different day for us.
We will use very comfortable vans to get there, so our trip will be pleasant and fun.
Marcone and I will be waiting for you. Argentina is our second home, it always have been the place where we choose to spend some time out of Brazil, this is the place where we have our friends and each time we have more places to take our faithful guests such as the Capital, Iguazu Falls, Salta, Jujuy, Bariloche, El Calafate and Ushuaia, and we also have a lot of great guides in our team.
Thank you very much,
Rafa and Marcone
