Experiencing the local life: Gauchos show and barbecue
Is there a better way to get to know a nation then visiting its countryside and meeting the ordinary family running a farm? This tour will give you an insight on how does Gauchos’ everyday life going, what music do they listen to, what are they eating etc…- imagine everything you are doing at your home but just in the gaucho’s way.
Once you’ve explored Buenos Aires enough, a perfect getaway excursion from city’s hustle and bustle is to enjoy the country side; or if you are looking for a shore excursion where you can just relax and enjoy the ordinary life, this is the one we would recommend.
Don’t miss a worth visiting Argentine Estancia (Farm), where You will taste a typical empanada (meat pie) and enjoy a Traditional asado (barbecue) with Argentine wines. During the show, you will enjoy folklore music and tango dances, for which Argentinians are very well known for. Tango originates from lower-class districts of Buenos Aires but very soon it was adopted by the higher classes and in the 20th century it gained world popularity. Tango shows the nature of the Argentinians perfectly- they are passionate and vigorous as the tango.
The tour guide will tell you everything you want to know about Argentinian folk culture- this fascinating mix of Latin-American passion with European cosmopolitanism is worth meeting. At the countryside, you will appreciate the riding abilities such as the horse exhibition and the corrida de sortija race (ring race) while you’ll be able to ride a horse or a carriage (sulky). Corrida de Sortija is one of the gaucho sports still being played In some city’s festivals; it is played like this: underneath the cross-beam is loosely suspended a small ring, not larger than a wedding-ring. A Gaucho, galloping at the fastest beneath this, is to bear off the ring on a bit of twig, about the caliber of an ordinary pencil. The Gauchos were horsemen who tended cattle in the Pampas- these ‘cowboys’ were once heroes of the nation and were celebrated by the writers and common folk, nowadays they are a symbol of Argentina. Santa Susana Estancia (Santa Susana Farm) is only 40 miles away from Buenos Aires city.
