The property includes two polo fields and the guest can also watch games during the season, with practice sessions and matches taking place almost daily. Although it is not intended to be a polo school, arrangements can be made on request for guests who are experienced polo players.

La Bamba, whose origins date back to 1830 when it formed one of the post houses on the "Camino Real" (Royal Road) that linked Buenos Aires to the north of the country, is one of the oldest Argentinian colonial style estancias. With its main building and its guard tower which served to defend against native attacks, its former stables (La Pulperia) and its 200 years old park, it is rooted in Argentine and Gaucho history. Transformed into an estancia in the early twentieth century, it retained its name, derived from the Celtic word "Bahamba" which means "place of rest and hospitality", and was listed by the City of San Antonio de Areco in 1970. One of the first estancias to open its doors to the public in the 1980s and completely renovated in 2009 in the pure tradition, La Bamba has today regained its exceptional charm and original grandeur. As a tribute to the gauchos and their traditions, photographs by Aldo Sessa and paintings by Alejandro Moy abound, as well as leather and silver goods made by contemporary artists from San Antonio de Areco which adorn the boutique and attest La Bamba’s loyalty to its local town.
