El Ombu de Areco Estancia is a traditional ranch located in San Antonio de Areco, at the heart of gaucho (cowboy) country and an easy drive from Buenos Aires. On this tour, spend an entire day at the estancia, with activities including horseback riding, a traditional ‘asado’ barbecue lunch, and a thrilling gaucho show.

This wide road links the two government buildings and is lined with wonderful cafes and buildings. Like many road it suffers from too much traffic, so visit at weekends when it is nearly empty.

Although it's not as long as many other avenues in the city, you start at the plaza de mayo, with the government house and head towards the congress. Nice views on the left and on the right. Pretty busy during Working Week.

Avenida de Mayo is one of the grandest and most important in Buenos Aires, leading from Plaza de Mayo with the pink government palace Casa Rosada at one end, to Argentina’s National Congress building at the other. It was named in honor of the May Revolution of 1810 which lead to Argentina's independence from Spain. It is difficult not to compare this grand thoroughfare to other great boulevards around such world, such as those in Paris, Madrid, and Barcelona. This avenue is home to many famous buildings and architecture and home to many important historical events in Argentina's history, and continues to be the primary venue for protests, demonstrations, and celebrations. The avenue, officially inaugurated in 1894, is just under a mile long and it’s worth walking the entire length to take the city’s history. We spend lots of time walking around this area during our one-week stay in Buenos Aires.

It stretches from Plaza de Mayo to Plaza de Congreso for circa two km. It is a nice walk that allows to see el Cabildo (in Plaza de Mayo), the famous Café Tortoni, a nice fountain at the intersection with Avenida 9 de Julio, and the Barolo Palace, before reaching the end on the north side in a nice green area with a view on Palacio de Congreso. There are also several restaurants and bars, also in the streets that crosses the avenida, making it a good place to plan lunch or dinner.
