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.

My partner and I visited Recoleta Cemetery on a Sunday morning in March 2020, just before Covid hit. It's something of an overwhelming experience - rows and rows of elaborate and often overblown mausoleums in just about every architectural style imaginable, jumbled together for almost as far as the eye can see in each direction, some grand and well maintained, others atmospherically faded. There is so much to take in that it can be difficult to absorb anything. To truly appreciate it you need to slow down and try to concentrate on some of the detail. If you are a photographer there are so many absolutely fantastic atmospheric shots awaiting you. This probably isn't somewhere to bring children, or for those with short attention spans. It's best approached by just allowing yourself to get lost in the maze of pathways for a couple of hours. Non Argentines will probably only be interested in searching out one specific tomb, that of Eva Peron. Ironically, if you do eventually manage to stumble across it (you'll know it instantly by the large crowd gathered in front of it) it's actually one of the more modest and understated in the cemetery. Overall a quintessentially Buenos Aires experience and highly recommended.

This is not only well know for Evitas tomb but more. Importantly a showcase of European settlers history and Art! The mausuleums are unique and to the liking of any french historic city. You will find that not only it's a great stroll but also the statues and art work of prolific European families are outstanding! They offer tours and night ghostly ones too. You may see some caskets run down or others with their own private chapels. And a secret is that all of them go deep below aground 2 to 3 stories! As well as up. Simply a must see!!! Oh and of your looking for Evitas make a left at the first alley on the main entrance all the way to the end then make a right at the wall and either the second or third lane to your left you'll find a very small and austere tomb that of the family of Evita Duarte.

There are over 4600 grave vaults established in 1822. Definitely worth a walk through to see all different styles of architecture and of course to hear story of "Evita" if go with a guide
