One of the most amazing experiences we had in Bolivar is when we headed into the country to visit an original pulperia – essentially a General Store for gauchos back in the day with basic necessities, mail service and a bar. The quintessential gathering place for those who worked the campos.

The one we visited had been in operation since the 1880’s and our hosts were the descendants of the man who first opened it.

It’s a regional historical treasure and has been featured in magazines across Argentina.

What an amazing glimpse back in time.
