I cannot recommend a visit to Sayta ranch more highly. We decided to stay 2 nights on the ranch so that we could do more riding and go up into the mountains, and we are so glad that we did!
Enrique and team welcomed us like family, they cooked the most delicious food (including an amazing asado), and helped us practice our Spanish. A home away from home!
The horses were beautiful and the Gauchos are amazing! A truly special trip!


What a wonderful time we have had at the Range of Enrique together with his staff and volunteers. We stay a full day and one night. Morning and afternoon ride on the hours as with the gauchios. The even have horses for very in experience riders or kids. Lunch and dinner were fabulous. Enrique and his staff spared no expense to make you feel at home or poor lovery wine.If you are in the area of Salts please go there. You will not disappointed.


We had a lovely day at Sayta – the horse riding was great with beautiful views. The BBQ was delicious with lots of variety – you won’t be disappointed. There was also lots of yummy wine to accompany your afternoon. If you are looking for a great day out in country Argentina this is a great choice. Both for beginners and experienced horse riders.


Se los recomiendo para los que buscan conectarse a pleno con la naturaleza y lo celestial… los anfitriones son de lo mejor, la comida es espectacular, el equipo de trabajo impresionante, una atención de reyes y de cenas principescas… Todo muy lindo.
