“A beautiful and relaxing afternoon out”
Reviewed 24 November 2013

If you want to do something a bit different and if city hustle and bustle is wearing you out, an afternoon at the Polo is exactly what you need.

Rub shoulders with upper class Argentineans and sit back and watch this world-class "gentlemen's sport" unfold. Me and my friends know close to nothing about polo but the magnificence of the horses and skill of the players had us hooked.

People watching and the atmosphere in the surrounding tents are half the fun so make sure you have some champagne (dah-ling), sit at one of the outdoor tables and take it all in.

A glamorous event to attend as a traveler, and a beautiful sport to watch! There are great after parties in the surrounding tents, which provide an ideal people watching scene!

“Different experience”
Reviewed 7 December 2012

This was fun to see, although I know nothing about polo it was more about the atmosphere. You see a lot of really rich people and high class exhibits to cater to them. Food was not so great, but the horses were fun.

“Wonderful surprise visit to polo grounds and match”
Reviewed 16 September 2011

Campo Argentino de Polo is a large polo ground venue located in Buenos Aires. The day we arrived we happened to be walking from the wonderful Las Canitas neighborhood to the wonderful Palermo park area. We happened to wander into a professional polo match.
We loved the open space in the city, the marching band, the open stands, the speed of the horses and the play of a game we have never witnessed beyond brief t.v. or advertising.
I had nothing negative to say in regards to this event. I would recommend brining a camera and open mind to a new sport.
Accompanied by children this is a short visit. Adults could take advantage of the food and beverages in the stadium. Either way, taxi, collective and train station are all outside the gate.
