Our proposal is raised in one of the best estancias in Corrientes. It won the prize for the best tourist stay granted by Lugares magazine, standing out for its beautiful hull and excellent services.
20 km away from Esquina, to the south of the province of Corrientes on the border with Entre Ríos, this estancia will be our operational base to carry out fun activities and photograph country life and nature in its purest form. Our proposal is to get to know different areas and activities of the ranch.
Day 0: Departure of the bus from Retiro, Buenos Aires, to the city of Esquina, Corrientes. (Bus tickets not included)
Day 1: Introduction to Buena Vista
Arrival at 06:30 a.m. Transfer from the bus station in the city of Esquina to the estancia. (Transfer in not included)
We check in and start with a countryside breakfast. To get used to our horses, in the morning we will do a short ride of 1:30 hs. Lunch. In the afternoon we will participate in some work on the estancia with the gauchos to delve a little deeper into the tasks that are carried out on the ranch. It is also a great day to opt for a Carriage ride; surrounded by a subtropical natural environment of 4000 hectares. Dinner and overnight.
Day 2: Horseback riding to the east. An authentic Estancia in production. Distance 22 km.
Countryside breakfast. Departure on horseback to our Estero Pucu. Approximately 2 hours long. We will pass through different environments such as waterholes, rushes, lagoons, groves, etc. We arrive at the pier for lunch. Then, we board a canoe to observe the native fauna and flora of Corrientes. We use a "botador" to not make any kind of noise and thus be able to hear the sounds of the place. It is possible to observe alligators, capybaras, otters, and more than 200 species of birds (such as jacanas, herons, pollonas, chajaes, ducks, caracaras, etc.) Tea and dinner. Overnight.
Day 3: Horseback riding to the north. Corrientes River. Distance 22 km.
Countryside breakfast. On the way to the river, we pass through an old cemetery that dates back to 1850. Arriving at the place, we will take a walk along the beaches and the river cliffs to observe other types of birds and abundant vegetation. Carrero stew is offered for lunch. We take a boat ride on one of the cleanest rivers since in its 250 km long it does not pass through any city. Return to the Estancia. Tea and dinner. Overnight.
Day 4: Last day + Farewell
Countryside breakfast. Optional activities of your choice, you can see all the options available in "included services". Tea and dinner.
Transfer to the Esquina terminal for the bus to leave at 11 pm. (Transfer out not included)
OPTIONAL: You can spend the night at the Estancia and leave the next day in the morning, with no additional cost.
In the Estancia, in single, double or triple rooms
The route is calm and without much demand. All the activities are optional and if you don't want to ride a horse, you can change between the other activities available.
Definitely not. The horses are prepared to receive people who have never ridden and the learning process is significantly fast. The modality is "at pace", in expedition form, one horse behind the other, to advance through the undulating terrain.
Those who have horseback riding experience will also have the possibility of having looser horses and being able to gallop and/or trot at times that the locals consider it appropriate, depending on the type of terrain.
Overnights are in the rooms of the Estancia, you can ask for a single, double or triple room.
Each one must carry their personal luggage in a large bag or backpack.
Typical foods of the area, such as barbacue, chicken or meat stew, vegetarian dishes, etc.
