For those who want to spend a day at the races, the Hipodromo de San Isidro is a good option. Its 148 hectares make it one of the largest the Americas and there is a large variety of trees and plants arranged in a stunning park around the grass track. The spacious grounds invite you to spend a relaxed evening watching the animals parade around before the race begins, and then the atmosphere explodes. There are horse races every week, although the Carlos Pelligrini race, held every December, is one of the most famous. By nightfall the powerful track lighting makes it seem like day, so you can enjoy the atmosphere until late. The racecourse is located precisely in San Isidro, Buenos Aires, Argentina.
We arrived at Calafate in the Patagonian winter (August) but as it was an awesome day, we were offered the possibility of a horse ride around Lake Argentino. We were really excited. We went to a house on the outskirts of the village where there were lots of animals. The truth is we didn't have much experience, but we enjoyed it. The horse ride lasts about two hours and you can enjoy the peace and the exceptional natural. The lake is surrounded by the Andes Mountains, and the local flora is reduced to scrub that gave the village its name: "El Calafate". We were told that this shrub is used to make everything, including jams with fruit. Outstanding experience
