Why Visit The Pampas in Argentina?

"The vast and fertile plains of the Pampas are Argentina’s heartland where Gauchos raise cattle on traditional estancias and guests are welcomed in with warm Argentine hospitality."

The Pampas is a general term that refers to the vast lowlands located west of Buenos Aires and covering several provinces. Rich in folklore, history and tradition the endlessly flat fertile plains are dotted with historic estancias where locals occupy themselves with age old pass times and life is lived in much the same way it has been for years. Prime cattle raising country, the Pampas played an important part in Argentina’s agricultural boom in the early part of the 20th century. Although beef production has since decreased in favour of other crops such as soy, the pampas still retain their importance in the Argentine identity.
