The Gauchos

The Gaucho is the national symbol of Argentina. More than just a romantic notion, the stories, folklore and customs of these free-spirited horsemen continue to capture the imagination of curious travellers. The pride of both men and women and the dignity with which they display their horse-based traditions is legendary.

Daily Life

Yerba Mate

When on the range, the Gaucho diet consists almost entirely of beef. Cows were originally slaughtered only for their hides, leaving the meat for the Gauchos. Argentina’s national dish – grilled meat known as asado – is derived from this simple Gaucho style of outdoor barbecue cooking. Gauchos also drink a typical drink called yerba mate, a herbal tea-like beverage, rich in caffeine and nutrients. Yerba mate is traditionally prepared in a hollowed-out gourd and sipped through a metal straw that also functions as a sieve, called a bombilla.
