We loved this port. So much to see - hustle and bustle. Would have loved to spend more time here. This was our favorite port! We also took a excursion Day at the Estancia which was worth every cent. We took a short bus tour to the La Robida Ranch, which was actually someone's private home/ranch. The grandmother came out with her family and welcomed everyone. They provided us with a hayrides through the countryside/fields to a cobblestone walkway down to a secluded beach. There we were greeted with homemade cookies made with milk jam and lemondade and other drinks. From here we got back on the hay wagons and were dropped off near their water supply. We next got an introduction to their sheep shearing, cows, and other animals. We were given an opporunity to shear sheep with an old fashioned pair of hand shears and milk a cow. We then were given a chance to eat a variety of appetizers they were roasting over their open fire pit. These consisted of blood sausage, kidney's and sweet bread (pancreas)....yes, very interesting. Next we sat under a covered thatched roof in outdoor dining and were given a chance to taste many fresh vegetables, salads and breads. Assorted wines, juices, soda's, etc. were provided. Next came the meal, which was ribs, chicken, beef, and pig. Very delicious. For dessert, a bowl of strawberries with whipped cream finished off the meal. During dessert we enjoyed an authentic dance show performed by flame throwers and dancers in costume. We then were given an opportunity to ride horses and last, take a ride on a piece of cow hide being pulled behind a horse. Yes, some people actually did this. What a wonderful excursion!
