If you’ve ever wanted to pretend you’re a cowboy for the day, here’s your chance. Step into the boots of a gaucho on Camino Pampa’s estancia experience. The day starts at 8 a.m. with a pickup at your hotel in Buenos Aires to travel about an hour and a half into the countryside via private vehicle. Your guide will meet you in San Antonio de Areco, a historic gaucho town, where you will learn about the art of silver and metal-working and walk the sleepy colonial streets.
