Program Description
Equitrekking host Darley Newman travels to the small South American country of Uruguay to discover gaucho culture by visiting various estancias, riding with cowboys on the beach, taking in the coastal town of Punta del Este and tasting local foods in Montevideo. At an eco-friendly ranch that raises sheep and cattle, Darley learns about the area's mystical vibe on a ride to a section of mysterious stone cones and up to a high point with views of a Tibetan monastery. Over a morning cup of mate, a special tea popular throughout Uruguay, Darley talks with a local about the tradition behind this caffeinated drink and the proper way to prepare it. Then it's off to the beach to visit the attractions of popular Punta del Este and a city stop in Montevideo to eat at Mercado del Puerto. Darley goes horse riding on the beaches of Uruguay's northern border near Brazil, hearing the legends of pirates who once raided the shores. At a working cattle ranch, viewers meet real gauchos, learning about the nomadic life of these South American cowboys. At a third working estancia, Darley rides through area vineyards and explores the rugged terrain of the Sierras of Mahoma on horseback.
