ARECO TRADICION

Our mission: develop customized getaways throughout the year, in order to share the traditions and values of Argentinian gauchos with our visitors. So come and discover San Antonio de Areco, the national capital of tradition, as well as an authentic Estancia of the Pampas, for an unforgettable experience.

Our company, as well as our local agency, was founded in 2013 by Bertrand Mahé, a professional photographer and lover of the large wild Argentinian landscapes, and Andrés Ferrante, founder of the Portal Areco, a tourism website about San Antonio de Areco and its surrounding regions. In 2015, Sarah Reynier decided to leave Buenos Aires, where she had been living for two years, and join the team of Areco Tradición in San Antonio de Areco. Her passions are horses and the gaucho culture in Argentina, which she will entice you share!

Our commitment to sustainable tourism calls us daily, to foster local economic growth, whilst preserving the cultural and natural resources of the region. Our entire team strives to promote healthy, responsible and supportive tourism, based on mutual respect and social commitment.

Nowadays, our agency is made up of a welcoming and warm, multilingual team, who share the same passion for history and Gaucho traditions. In addition to an outstanding knowledge of the region, all our advisers, guides and drivers are bilingual in Spanish & English or Spanish & French.

All of our guides are local and live in San Antonio de Areco. They know better than anyone, the history and secrets of the town and the Estancias of the region. They will also be able to delight you with anecdotes about the inhabitants of one of the oldest towns in Argentina!
