This was my first polo class and it was an incredibly enjoyable experience. I hadn't ridden for years but Fernando was very patient, calm, and explained technique quite well. The horses are all well trained and quite gentle. We practiced general horse riding skills for a while then shifted to polo basics - they day culminated in a 2 v.... More

The whole experience for my family back in December (husband and 2 teenagers girl and boy) was amazing. Fernando, the instructor is fantastic. He is knowledgeable, a very experienced rider and instructor. He made it possible for my son and husband, who are neophytes to riding to enjoy and learn how to play polo in a few hours. As well...

We had the absolute pleasure of meeting Fernando our expert professional polo guide. We were picked up from our hotel on time and driven about 50 mins to the ranch where our polo horses were saddled ready and waiting. Fernando assisted with making sure we were comfortable on the horse before beginning with our polo instruction. As a professional international... More

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

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.
