More information about

Country picnic for events

What does it include?
  • We prepare the services for your event in a personalized way: you can choose what to include, how long your visit will last, and the menu you like the most. Some of the options are Argentinean barbecue with wine from Mendoza, homemade appetizers (with bread, cheese and salami), empanadas and fried dough, and for adventure activities we offer horseback riding and trekking.
  • You must inform upon booking your event everything you wish to include for your group, as we prepare the logistics in advance.
What to bring
  • Sportswear: long pants, coat, windbreaker, hat, gloves and sneakers or boots.
  • Sunscreen and sunglasses.
  • Mineral water.
  • Mate kit, if you would like to have some.
How do I get to the Post?

You will have to arrive at the Post on your own, as the activity does not include transportation.. Here you will find the map with our exact location.

The trip will take approximately two hours from Mendoza City by private vehicle (public transportation does not reach the site).

Important: We recommend downloading the map from Google Maps, as in some parts of the road there is no phone signal. 

Directions: First you will have to head towards the town of Potrerillos, and from there take route 89 to ” Las Vegas” town. When you get there, you will continue along route 89 until del Sol Ave., and then you will head towards “Valle del Sol”. 

Once you enter Valle del Sol, you will have to continue until the end of the boulevard, and right where it ends, in a corner you will see the “El Lagarto” grocery store. 

When you see the store, turn right on the same street and continue until the end, where you will find a gate and a sign that reads “Puesto Las Lajas”: this is the entrance to our Post. You will have to open the gate (then leave it closed in the same way), and continue from there to Rancho Don Daniel. It is a 3.5 km. gravel road in good condition. Please bear in mind that you will not have any phone signal.

How do I choose and book my experience?
  • You should contact us and let us know what you are looking for. We will be happy to help you plan your event and make your day at Don Daniel Ranch a unique experience.
  • To confirm your reservation you will have to pay a 25% deposit via bank transfer.
Do you offer a vegetarian/alternative menu?

Yes, we do. Just let us know when you book your experience, and we will prepare something special for you.

What is the local weather like?

It is a mountain climate, so it is more extreme than that of the city. 

In winter, be aware that there may be snow, and temperatures drop considerably, so it is important that you bring your full gear list, and plenty of warm clothes.

In summer, although temperatures are higher, we can always have a cold day. So it is important that you bring all the suggested clothing (except gloves and hat, in case you are not very cold).

About the place

Don Daniel Ranch is a mountain post in Mendoza, located in the Plata Mountain Range, in the Front Range. In these hills, surrounded by peaks that reach up to 6,000 m.a.s.l., there are beautiful water springs that bring life to the place.

From Mendoza you will arrive after a 2-hour drive, passing through picturesque towns such as Cacheuta and Potrerillos, to Las Lajas Post (in Las Vegas, Valle del Sol).

And there you will find our home: the place where we live, raise animals, and welcome every visitor to share our customs. We look forward to your visit.
