hi everyone - not strictly related to just polo - but as so many involved in polo are connected with Argentina - this seems a good place to ask...... A friend of mine is travelling there for the first time later this year and I have no advice for her as Ive never been! Any advice gratefully received... ie places to go and not to go - best bars / restaurants - friendly clubs who would not insist on being a member etc etc....... Thanks for your time! Mark
Hi Mark, i and my couple Ricardo have a polo holiday/ clinic in Argentina, in Mar del Plata city near the capital, is a beatifull place where you can find polo, beach, city and a lot off night activities as the oposit of the other polo holiday where you are in the middle of the farm playing polo, polo, polo... with nothing more to do.
Please check our web site www.lariendapolo.com and any thing that you want to know just ask me, firstname.lastname@example.org
Hi there Mark... I've been living here 9 years ago, in Capital Federal, Argentina, I'm actually leaving to France, but I could give u some tips and contacts to go for some nice places here in Buenos Aires. I.E. Asia de Cuba http://www.asiadecuba.com.ar/ (nice place to go) ... free pass, dinner discounts, etc... Let me know or chirp me at 54*609*6696 after friday. My best regards. Leo.
Hello Mark, Im Claudia from Argentina, now i live in Austin TX ., with my husband Salvatore
It would be a great idea if your friend has the chance to go to the south of the country as Bariloche, Patagonia, and the nearbys -
Remember now is comming the winter the high moment to enjoy the snow, big Polo Championships, the GLACIARES Perito Moreno, and all the enviroment is amazing, as the food as well
I m sure he will love it !!
If he just stays in BUE ( Buenos Aires ) tell him to visit Puerto Madero ( full of amazing places to eat and drink ), LABOCA it is intresting that area to see as the inmigrants specially from Italy used to live as they arrived from Europe with colourfull houses and Tango places, other areas to go are Palermo Hollywood good to eat at the rest > " LA FONDA DEL POLO ", Recoleta were can find the Cementry where lays EVITA, and in front is the resto- bar LA BIELA, nice to have a meat sandwich sitting in an outside table like in Paris ...
Downtown in BUE I love to eat in a place call EL ESTABLO amazing meat & french potatoes w/ garlic and basil, or pizza at the rest FILO they are both near PARAGUAY st & San Martin (downtown) - THE MALBA museus, and so many other places... as you easy can see I LOVE MY COUNTRY ... hope this can help you a bit whatever you need just ask me pls - GOOD LUCK & ALL THE BEST
