You don’t need to be an experienced rider or to have ever played polo before, Carlito has a large string of ponies and will find the mount to suit you. By the end of the two-week holiday you will be playing chukkas and competing in a club tournament.
Mar del Plata Polo Club is situated right next to the beach just south of Mar del Plata city, some 400 kilometres south of Buenos Aires. With its beaches, casinos, shopping centres, restaurants, parks, Aquarium and museums there is plenty to see and do if you fancy a break from the riding.
Your days will be spent at the polo club and the evenings eating out in fantastic restaurants. Each day starts with a ride on the beach, to warm you and your polo pony up. This is followed by two polo sessions, one in the morning and one late afternoon. During the heat of the day you can enjoy a swim, barbeque lunch and a siesta.
