Experience the Argentinian Countryside Like JoJo Fletcher on 'The Bachelorette'
Sometimes there’s no better way to spend a vacation than splitting your time between urban and rural areas. If you travel to Buenos Aires, Argentina, take a break from the hustle and bustle of the city and escape to the countryside. While there, you can ride horses, go wine tasting, and lose yourself in the natural beauty surrounding you.
JoJo Fletcher traveled to the region on Season 12of “The Bachelorette,” and here’s how you can vacation just like her!
Where to Stay
While you could take a day trip to Buenos Aires’ surrounding areas, you might as well make a mini vacation out of it and see what the region has to offer. JoJo and the guys booked rooms at Puesto Viejo, a stunning hotel with a pool, polo field, top-notch dining options, and more. You and your date can horseback ride through the fields together, making your getaway that much more romantic.
Whether you’re here to relax and unwind or to explore the town, Puesto Viejo will be an ideal home base that’s just as cozy as the Bachelor Mansion.
One-on-One Date: Gaucho-in-Training
Gauchos are an indelible part of Argentinian culture and were often thought of as the South American version of the heroic cowboy. Pay homage to these legends and bring their legacies back to life during a date at El Ombú de Areco. During your time here, you can learn the ropes of being a gaucho, just like JoJo and her date did! Take that horse to the old town road and ride till you feel like a gaucho.
You can even start your own gaucho tradition by handing out a rose at the end!
One-on-One Date: Nothing to Wine About Here
Wine makes any date feel more romantic, so live the best of both worlds by spending the day at an Argentinian vineyard. Mendoza feels like California’s Napa Valley and France’s Côtes du Rhone because it’s the epicenter of Argentinian wine country. Although it’s across the country from Buenos Aires, it’s only a two-hour flight from the capital. Just think of it as extra time to bond with your date!
Hop on a plane or charter a helicopter and explore a new region while sipping on some of the best wine around. It’ll be just like your own “Bachelorette” cocktail party!
One-on-One Date: Shoot for the Stars
While you’re back at Puesto Viejo, give your love a shot by trying out skeet shooting on your one-on-one date. This will be a perfect opportunity to see if your date makes or misses the mark.
After your day outside shooting the clay targets, bring a bottle of wine (Malbec, perhaps?) and toast to your romantic day together.
A mini vacation to the Argentinian countryside is a great way to get a change of scenery if you’re visiting Buenos Aires. From horseback riding to wine tasting, this will be one special journey with your loved one you’ll never forget.
