A former working cattle ranch turned eco-lodge, Estancia Rincon Del Socorro sits in 30,000 acres of unspoilt Conservation Land Trust wetlands in northeast Argentina. Encompassed by vast expanses of watery marshes and the islands that haphazardly sprout from them, the estancia is hemmed in by splashing herons, basking alligators and frolicking capybaras. An exclusive wetland retreat where nature thrives beyond each door, Estancia Rincon Del Socorro boasts a dazzling outdoor pool that overlooks the water and grasslands.
The main house contains six beamed rooms and boasts far-reaching views over the distant marshes through large windows, and additional rooms are housed within three cosy garden bungalows that are just a short stroll away. A large outdoor barbeque house hosts occasional asados, and delicious dishes are made from organic ingredients sourced from private biodynamic gardens.
Why we like Estancia Rincon Del Socorro
Teeming with exotic wildlife like capybaras, rheas, birds and butterflies, guests need only step out of the front door to be totally immersed in nature.
Embark on discoveries of the wetlands on boat trips, overflights or on foot, returning to the estancia for delicious dinners. Saddle up to venture on horseback rides or go birdwatching throughout the marshes, and head out on night-time jeep safaris to observe the nocturnal wildlife.
Working to conserve the indigenous wildlife and encourage restoration of the ecosystem, Estancia Rincon Del Socorro is a superior eco-tourism destination within a Conservation Land Trust landscape that supports projects that include the repopulation of giant anteaters, jaguars and tapirs.
Estancia Rincon Del Socorro is located in the Corrientes Province of Argentina on the edge of Lago Esteros del Ibera, close to the small town of Carlos Pellegrini in the heart of the Ibera Wetlands.
