What to Bring for Estancia at Sierra Chicas

The estancia is situated at 1100 metres and therefore weather can sometimes be unpredictable - there is always the possibility of a wet, windy or cold day, and so pack accordingly!  In addition, the sun is very strong, so hats and good sun protection are recommended all year round.

Hard hat - a limited supply of hard hats are available on the estancia but for comfort, fit and to ensure compliance with safety regulations in your own country we recommend you bring your own. The estancia does not recommend shipping anything (eg. riding helmets) to Argentina as it usually gets stuck in customs.
Towels for the room and swimming pool are provided.

The estancia generates its own electricity and supports responsible tourism. Therefore, the use of electrical items such as hairdryers and irons may be limited, and are not provided by the estancia. 
It is possible to do laundry- cold wash only and no ironing (we create our own electricity and so it is very precious to us!). There is no fixed charge – we just ask that guests reflect the washing in their gratuity.

Saddle bags are provided.
