Buenos Aires to Colonia Day Trip Colonia del Sacramento, Uruguay
Colonia is a lively colonial town with narrow cobbled streets flanked by whitewashed buildings. A trip to this charming town will seem like a trip back in time. Colonia is also only a 2 hour ferry ride from Buenos Aires, a close proximity that allows a great day-trip.

Tigre and Parana River Delta day trip Tigre and Parana River Delta
Only an hour north of Buenos Aires by train (slightly longer by bus) is the tranquil suburb of Tigre, a good base for discovering life on the canals of the Delta del Parana. Buenos Aires' residents often come here for a summer retreat and the area can get busy on weekends.

Buenos Aires nearby Guest Ranches and Estancias Estancias and Guest Ranches Only a few hours from Buenos Aires are many estancias, or guest ranches. These traditional rural estates are ideal for getting out of the city for a weekend and enjoying nature from the perspective of an authentic working Argentine ranch. Most estancias offer a gaucho, or genuine cowboy, show and an asado (grilled meat) lunch, often cooked out of doors on the range. Many also include activities such as horseback riding, hiking, swimming, bird or animal watching, and several have access to golf and tennis courts.

Guacho Tour and day trip from Buenos Aires San Antonio de Areco
On the south bank of the Areco River, 70 miles (113 kms) west of Buenos Aires, is a slice of Argentina's old frontier way of life, where many of the locals still wear gaucho berets, the post office always closes for lunch and nobody ever locks their bikes. Only two hours from the capital by bus, the serene village of San Antonio de Areco seems years away from the noise of the capital. The town is a throw-back to the country's traditional gaucho culture and has become a popular weekend getaway for portenos (inhabitants of Buenos Aires) and visitors alike. San Antonio de Areco's old-fashioned kiosks serve up delightful treats, such as alfajor, a type of biscuit, and the traditional handicrafts sold at its weekly market make excellent mementos. There are also plenty of museums, cultural centers, churches, and monuments in the town to keep tourists occupied for a full day.

In November, San Antonio de Areco hosts Argentina's largest gaucho celebration, the famous Dia de la Tradicion (Tradition Day).
