On my recent trip to Buenos Aires, I had the pleasure of experiencing a fabulous day outside of the city that knocked my socks off. La Bamba de Areco is an estancia located just 120 km from Buenos Aires (about a 2 hour drive), and quickly transports you from the fast-paced energy of the city, to a world of complete relaxation.
If you are looking for a great overnight destination from the city of Buenos Aires, or perhaps somewhere to just escape for the day where you can appreciate exquisite cuisine, gaucho traditions, and a serene atmosphere, La Bamba de Areco is the perfect destination.
If you do choose to stay overnight (and I suggest that you do!), this boutique property is the epitome of luxury and comfort. With just 11 suites that look out over the Pampas or the polo fields, you will immediately be immersed in the beauty of the colonial elegance, and without the unnecessary distraction of televisions. Afterall, you are here to just relax!
My favorite part of the entire experience? Well, that would probably be the food -- specifically this dessert. I'd venture to say that the 2 hour ride from Buenos Aires is worth it for this alone, but with everything else they have to offer, you are sure to be more than satisfied with your visit here!
