The small town unites the natural landscapes of the Argentine Pampas with the tranquility of farm life, with a comfortable distance from the busy capital city. It's location allows visitors the possibility to stick and ball, and play a few "chukkers" during the day, and then head off to Palermo (in Buenos Aires) to watch a game at the Argentine Open and enjoy the restaurants and night life of one of Latin America's most exciting cities.
El Rincon del Polo Club & School boasts two polo fields and is home to over 50 Argentine polo horses. The School is also equipped with two Houses with 6 bed rooms ,fireplaces and a
beautiful patio overlooking. The El Rincon staff provides breakfast, lunch, cocktails and dinner, as well as
