Estancia Rincón del Socorro

Rincón del Socorro is a beautiful estancia set amongst the lily pads and reeds of Argentina's wildlife-rich Iberá Wetlands. There are great opportunities for riding, hiking and boat rides in the surrounding conservation area.

Ibera Wetlands, Northeastern Argentina, Argentina
Estancia Rincon del Socorro
  • Arguably the best location in the Iberá Wetlands for seeing the most and varied wildlife

  • A very remote lodge at the center of a conservation project launched by the late eco-philanthropist Doug Tompkins (founder of Northface)

  • Built around an old cattle ranch the interior is surprisingly modern and comfortable

  • An impressive array of wildlife can be spotted from your room's doorstep (and swimming pool) without the need for binoculars

Set on a 12,000 hectare estate, Rincón del Socorro is a former cattle ranch which has been lovingly converted into an eco-hotel and protected nature reserve, restored with the original habitats of marshes, grasslands and gallery forests.

The estancia consists of a characterful main house with six warmly decorated rooms and three small nearby bungalows, all with private bathrooms. The guest rooms are all uniquely designed, with no two alike. There is also a library area and an outdoor pool, perfect for cooling off in the heat of summer.

A welcoming and homely environment is provided for guests and the service is highly personalized. Much attention is given to the cuisine, using purely free range meats, home baked breads and pastries and with the majority of fruits and vegetables coming from the property's own organic gardens. When the weather is fine, meals are served on the terrace and there is also a barbecue hut by Laguna Iberá, where picnics and traditional asados are prepared, great accompanied by a fine Argentinean wine.

The surrounding sanctuary contains Iberá’s amazing untouched flora and fauna, and expert gaucho guides will take you out by 4WD, boat, on horseback and on foot to see howler monkeys, deers, capybara, anteaters, caiman, colorful flocks of birds and much more. There are also opportunities to take part in the seasonal cattle round-ups or simply relax and begin to understand the gaucho lifestyle as you share a mate tea with one of the friendly estate workers. A sister property, Estancia San Alonso, in the further reaches of the reserve, is also an attractive option, particularly for fly-fishing.
