San Antonio de Areco

On the south bank of the Areco River, 70 miles west from Buenos Aires, there is a slice of the old frontier life, where many of the friendly locals still wear gaucho berets; the post office always closes for lunch and nobody ever locks their bikes. Only 2 hours from Buenos Aires by bus, the serene village of San Antonio de Areco, seems years away from the noise of the city.The town is a throw back to the country´s original gaucho culture and has become a popular getaway from the city. Old kiosks offer delightful things, such as alfajor (a type of biscuit.) There are also museums, cultural centres, churches and monuments. Every november, San Antonio de Areco hosts the most important gaucho celebration in Argentina, the tradition day (“Día de la Tradición”).
