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.

The Hippodrome Race Track and Casino is a beautiful building located on Libertador street in Buenos Aires. At first glance, this very fancy building looks like it was once something very special. After you enter the place (and check your backpacks because they aren't allowed), you'll learn the entire building is a casino, but only a casino of Slot Machines. Even if you've been to Las Vegas, the sheer number of slot machines in this building will leave you speechless. There are literally thousands, taking up 3 floors and a quarter mile worth of casino floor, and every square inch is filled with Slot Machines, the digital kind. Some of the floor is smoking, another is not. In all, a VERY depressing place. There is simply no need for all these slot machines, and no need for people to be gambling solely on slot machines. It's kind of ridiculous. Being from the states, we did play any random slot. Inserted 100AP into a machine (about 70 cents USD) and played for about 10 minutes. Yes, it's that cheap if you want it to be. But not very fun - because the digital games are impassible to understand truth be told! There are slots in front of you, behind you, upstairs, and downstairs - you'll need air and a map to get out of this place. Skip it though. We then went outside to see the horse racing (which started at 3pm on this particular Monday. We watched a couple races, and bet on one (but didn't win). This was a new experience, so we enjoyed it more than the casino. Bottom line, I recommend coming here if you've never seen horse racing, but skip the casino. Across the street are polo grounds, but those are less frequent than what we saw in the Hippodrome horse races.

this is located in Palermo. Very beautiful building from the outside. Have not been inside of the casino though, but walking around the Racetrack yes. Recommended.

I didn't get to see and races, but you get to wander around the track and check out the facilities. Inside was full of slots it that is your thing. Across the street is the stadium for polo matches.

This is a very nice horse race track with a casino in the building. If you're a horse racing fan, this is a must visit place, especially if there is horse racing. The air conditioned restaurant serves good food and soft drinks (they don't serve alcohol here) and you can bet there. After dusk there is a real party atmosphere near the paddock area (you can get beer here). The building structures are amazing and the racing is great. We went to the casino next day (there was no racing that day) and had fun. It is all electronic, but they do have electronic roulette and black jack. If am in Buenos Airs I will definitely come back here.
