Sample Itinerary: BA + The Beach + Patagonia

 

 

Note: We suggest a lot of activities so you can get the most fun out of your tour. You always have NY Times Excerptthe alternative of doing your own thing, like relaxing at the hotel pool, watching a movie, or just walking around town.

 

Of course, the activities are different according the group's age and interest. If the players on your team are 8-17, for example, you will want to replace bar tours for movie theaters and a paragliding tour for a paintball day. This is just a sample itinerary and we will make a customized tour plan for you to meet your specific needs. You can get more or less activities depending on your plans and budget.

 

Day 1 - Arrival + Buenos Aires City Tour

 

You arrive to Buenos Aires International Airport. Your bilingual Tour Manager will welcome you and guide you to the bus that will be waiting for you.

Your Tour Manager will give you some tips about Argentina, which include how to exchange money, how to make international phone calls, how to get Internet access, etc.

 

The bus will take you to your hotel, where you can leave your luggage and take a shower.

 

Then we will take you on a Buenos Aires City Tour. Discover one of the most amazing cities in the world. Buenos Aires is a thoroughly modern city with more than 400 years of history. Visit Florida street, one of the most surprising pedestrian streets in South America. You don't want to miss Palermo Soho, the trendiest neighborhood in Argentina, where you will find tourists from all over the Globe; visit Puerto Madero, the preferred area for luxury offices and restaurants; and also check out San Isidro, the most exclusive neighborhood in Buenos Aires.

 

You will also get to see Argentina's historic buildings, the Casa Rosada (which means "Pink House" and is the President's office), the Obelisco (a huge tower with a lot of history), and some of the oldest, yet best mantained museums and theaters in the world.

 

Finish the day with a short visit to Recoleta, the neighborhood of choice for expats in Buenos Aires to have a good time and eat at the best restaurants.

Day 2 - Practice + Palermo Soho + Recoleta

 

Your team will have a practice in the morning. A complimentary transfer will be available for you and your Tour Manager will help you with any arrangements that you need.

 

In the afternoon you can have Tapas -a Spanish typical dish- in Palermo Soho, a place that is so cool you will never forget it.

 

At night you can go to Recoleta or Las CaƱitas, two of the trendiest areas in South America. Here you will find world-class restaurants, unique bars, and popular clubs.

 

Day 3 - Rugby game + Boca Juniors

 

You will play your first game in the morning on one of the most incredible fields in Argentina. After you play rugby on a field like ours, you will never think of green the same way.

 

A professional referee and medical assistance will be available at all times. Our transfer will take you to the game and back to Boca Juniors live gamethe hotel when you are finished.

 

We will prepare a barbecue for both teams so the players and coaches can interact with the locals and make friendships that will last forever.

 

In the afternoon we will take you to a Boca Juniors game. Having won the Intercontinental Cup -the major tournament in the world for clubs- three times (more than any other team in history), Boca Juniors is, without a doubt, one of the best soccer teams in the world.

Boca Juniors won 18 international tournaments and has more fans than all the other teams in Argentina combined.

 

Watching Boca Juniors live is an experience that is really hard to describe. Tens of thousands of people singing, jumping, and screaming for the most exciting 90 minutes of their week is just a start. When we say that you can feel the stadium vibrate, most people think that we are using an analogy. We aren't. It really vibrates. If you don't get goose bumps with all these people around you, please check your pulse.

 

Watching Boca Juniors is THE activity you don't want to miss for anything in the world.

Day 4 - Ranch Day

 

After a game day and watching Boca Juniors, it is a good time to relax.

 

One-and-a-half hours outside Buenos Aires you will find the perfect place to rest and have a good time. All you hear is the birds; all you see around is trees and horses; all you feel is the breeze in your face. Estancia Santa Susana is paradise if you want the best barbecue of your life (we guarantee it), to relax at the pool, and ride horses in the afternoon.

 

Enjoy one of Argentina's most popular traditions and you will soon understand why Argentineans are always smiling.

This night, your dinner is on us. Decide what kind of restaurant you want to go to and we will get you there.

 

At the end of the day you will be taking your bus to Mar del Plata.

 

As an alternative, you can leave Buenos Aires earlier that day and spend the day in Carilo, the trendiest beach town in South America. This unusual town will amaze you with its woods, beaches, sand roads, and extravagant houses.

 

Play beach rugby, eat the most incredible seafood and sushi ever -at prices so low you won't believe it, and relax under the sun on warm sand at one of the quietest beaches you will ever visit.

Taking surf lessons with your best friends in a foreign country is about as good as life gets, isn't it?

After lunch you have the rest of the day to relax and play at the beach, on the warm sand, and get a nice tan while you hang out with your friends and taste Mar del Plata's famous smoothies.

 

Day 8 - Waterpark + Beach

 

After a game day, you will want to rest and relax. It is a perfect time for Aquasol, Argentina's Waterparkbiggest waterpark. With so many attractions that will keep you entertained for hours, you will have the best time ever with your friends at Aquasol.

 

You will burn so many calories running around the waterpark that you'll be craving for a good lunch and a nap on the beach. You've got it, your wish is our command; you'll have the rest of the day to spend at your leisure at the beach.

 

Day 9 - Game + Aquarium

Day 11 - Game + Vineyards Tour + Paragliding

 

In the morning, you will play your fourth and last game on the greenest rugby field in Mendoza.

 

After lunch we will take you to Mendoza's Vineyards, a natural wonder which also happens to be the largest grape field in South America. You will see how they process the grapes and they create the wine. This is a fascinating tour that you will tell your friends about for years. You just won't be able to believe your eyes. Of course, if there are minors in your team, they won't be allowed to taste the wine; but the Paraglidingexperience of seeing the winemaking process is just priceless.

 

If you always wondered what flying would be like, you can take a tandem paragliding flight. It is an experience that we can't describe with words. When you see everything from the sky and it is all so quiet, it's an incredible feeling. Highly recommended.

 

Day 12 - Trekking + Rafting

 

Pack your bag, fill your water bottle, and don't forget your sandwiches. If you are an outdoor person, you will really love this day.

 

After a short hike on some of Mendoza's most gorgeous hills, you will take a one-hour whitewater rafting trip down on Rio Mendoza. This is one of the most beautiful sights of Argentina and you will have a blast here.
