Accommodation

Gaucho Argentino offers this amazing holiday in Corrientes. They have two residences to host guests and also a typical countryside home away from society, providing a total disconnection.

The residences are productively active, which also enables you to see from within the rural work of the lands. Having total freedom to realize activities such as horseback riding, observe livestock work, and collaborate with the Gauchos and their daily work.

You can make your own photographic safarí where you can see endless birds and fauna in general, black herons, yacaré, capybaras, deer, foxes, etc.

Among the activities, you can also take walks, swim with the horses, and take boat rides. You will be able to enjoy also the swimming pool and board games. At night, the stove with the guitar will not be missed.

In addition, Gaucho Argentino has the Creole horse hut "Dos Copas", where they raise and tame their horses working with the cattle. In this way, they are docile to assemble and agile for work.

In the residences, the activities are for families and they count on special horses for those who have less experience in horseback riding.
