vicino Coihaique, Aisén (Chile)

It’s a pretty safe bet to wager that as you’ve traveled around the region of Aysén, you’ve run into gauchos; men and women who proudly maintain old-style Patagonia customs, from the way they live and work to the way that they dress: boina, pañuelo around his neck and bombachas. Gaucho traditions came to Aysén with the pioneers who worked the immense estancias and ranches of the region and remain alive today, despite the arrival of all things modern. Learn more about these traditions and do a little “gauchoing up” of your own in the saddleries of Coyhaique.
