We had a really great time! Fernando picked us up and after a 45 minute drive we almost immediately sat on the horse. As we both already had some horse riding experience but had never played polo we got some instructions while warming up and after half an hour we started practicing with a mallet and ball. What an experience!... More

I only wish I'd prepared better in advance and scheduled more than one day of lessons. I won't make the same mistake again - definitely headed back again, and this time for more days! I've got over 30 years of experience riding/teaching, but this was new to me and I'm hooked. For those of you who haven't ridden before, don't... More

I can't say enough good things about Fernando and how fun our experience was learning polo. For me, it was my first time on a horse. Fernando walked through the basics in a very clear and concise way, riding along side each of us until we were comfortable going it alone. Once you get the mallet in your hand and... More

This was my first time taken polo and horseback riding lessons. Fernando was great, professional and very patient. He really made this experience fun and unforgettable. His kind personality, horseback riding skills and tremendous hospitality made my time in Buenos Aires memorable. Can't wait for next year!!

Elite Polo is the best. Fernando keeps perfecting the art of delivering best sport and entertainment package in Argentina. When I first met Fernando in 2013, I commented about him as the most professional polo instructor and travel organizer I have met in Argentina. After many happy returns to Elite Polo,l have concluded without doubt that Elite Polo is the... More

This is the 2nd time I have taken polo lessons with Fernando. He is patient, knowledgeable, and takes care of the all the details. His horses are well-trained and kind. This time we had some in the group who were experienced horse riders and some who were not, but Fernando was able to organize it so that all of us... More

We arranged this through our hotel the day before. Our young polo-playing guide collected us from our hotel, and drove us to the nearby polo stadium, which is actually very impressive, right in the middle of the city, with raked stands on both sides of the lovely green grassed pitch. Our guide was very informative about the rules and context... More

First of all, Fernando is awesome. He's so kind and gracious and his horses are perfect for experienced riders or beginners. I was with a group of pretty experienced riders and I am not, but the day was so much fun and Fernando helped each of us quickly get the hang of how to play polo. If our arms weren't... More

So much fun! Fernando is a superb instructor who made our day easy and delightful. His horses are well-trained and were easy for the beginners in our group to handle. Even better, the horses were perfect for the experienced riders in our group to Gallup around and attempt some real polo. The farm was beautiful. We couldn't have asked for... More

Fernando is fantastic! We had a group of 7-some experienced riders and some with very little experience. Everyone had an amazing time! Fernando picked us up, gave us the basics and then we had plenty of time to ride and pretend to play polo. He is a great teacher, his English is excellent and he answered a lot of questions... More

Staying in San Nicolas

Neighbourhood Profile
San Nicolas
Immersed in the sound of honking horns and the footsteps of busy office workers, the Microcentro area of San Nicolás is where visitors will encounter the true hustle and bustle of Buenos Aires, walking down streets lined with office buildings and banks. The financial district is well-known for its vibrant atmosphere and unstoppable rhythm during office hours. After dark, the hubbub and migrates to Corrientes Ave., where theatre lovers might start their evening at a play and end it in one of the many traditional pizzerias nearby. During the day, Corrientes is known for its many bookshops and classic cafés, which are located just minutes away from some famous landmarks, like the Obelisco, Avenida 9 de Julio, and the Teatro Colon.
