About us

Estancia El Totoral is a family-run 4000 hectares guest ranch, located in the foothills of the Andes Mountains 1800 m high, in Mendoza, Argentina. This ranch, belonged to the Palma family 250 years ago, being no longer in their hands for many years. The twists and turns of life gave Ricardo Palma and his family the opportunity to recover these lands and now they open their doors to offer a one of a kind experience.

We are the Palma family. Ricardo & Analicia together with our children, Agustina, Paula, Juan Ricardo, Analicia, Clara and Maria. Ever since we started hosting guests 25 years ago in our neighbor ranch Estancia Rancho `e Cuero, our story has had one consistent thread: warm and welcoming hospitality to all.
Take a walk back through time to get a sense of our roots and you will find the real Argentinean country lifestyle when you get here….
