Estancia life

Dear Friend,

Thanks for visiting our website! Below you'll find more information about us at Panagea.

Effectively we are a cattle ranch in the north of Uruguay. We receive people interested in knowing the life and work of gauchos, or South American cowboys. We are not a tourist spot, our real business is ranching of sheep and cattle, and receiving travelers is a side activity. That means that our accommodation is simple and consists of the real things of the country life in northern Uruguay that are not suitable for normal tourists. We like to tell people that in advance so no one is coming by mistake expecting another kind of spot.

We work on horseback everyday and if the visitor doesn't know how to ride we teach them. We have 5 different levels of horses according to behavior and stamina, so anyone who wants to learn can feel comfortable and confident.

Food is basic, hearty gaucho food (with vegetarian options) and is included in the price of $60 USD per day.

Being far from the city of Tacuarembó we don´t have electricity except for 2 hours each night by generator; the rest of the night is with candles. Hot showers are usually available, but occasionally we lack running water because of the lack of wind.

It's an experience that everyone goes through in a different way. Many people like it, some don't, so if you think you might, give us a try!
