My husband and I spent 3 nights at Rincon Chico in November 2013 and the visit was the highlight of our two weeks in Argentina. The meals were delicious and the staff couldn't have been nicer or more knowledgeable. The property is private and quiet and just spectacular. Because there are only a few rooms for guests, the experience of... More

The Estancia Rincon Chica is a place where everybody lives in harmony with the nature and shows a deep respect for wildlife and animals in general. It's worth staying at least a few days, not only to see and stay hours and hours with and near the sea elephants. Take out the mountain bikes to explore the land and the... More

For three nights we stayed at Rincon Chico and enjoyed every minute. The big elefant seals (males and females) had just left but there was still much to see: young babies and young males. And we could creep up very close to them. When a couple of juveniles started mock fights just two meters away from us, it was scary... More

The Estancia Rincon Chico is located at Peninsula Valez and is a paradise. Hundreds of sea lions, seals, guanacos, maras and last but not least orcas. You can discover everythings together with a very nice guide, called Roxana. Meals are perfectly prepared by Maria and Romana. A perfect place to rest and forget your daily business because apart from nature... More

The direct access to elephant seals are a must visit. Teresa, our nature guide, was extremely informative and allowed us to sneak up to the seals within 10 feet! There is also hiking and sand dune exploration on the massive property. The property is really in a remote setting so the running water is piped in from well water and... More

The place is great and the owners were really fortunate to have the Pen Valdes elephant seals population to breed on their land. Oct 20’th we spent 1 night at the property , as part of our 3 weeks tour in Argentina & Chile (Patagonia mainly). After having a wonderful full day guided tour of the Peninsula , we arrived... More

We decided to stop here for 2 nights on our visit through coastal Patagonia. And yes to what everyone else said - the graciousness of our hosts Agustin & Maria, the serenity of the ranch, and the unique access to elephant seals made our long drive through the rainy night completely worth it. When we arrived late in the evening... More

Had the privilege of staying at Rincon Chico for 2 nights as part of a whirlwind tour of Argentina to celebrate our 10 year anniversary. The highlight of the entire trip was Rincon Chico. Spending time with the elephant seals on the beach was surreal. They are truly majestic and haunting creatures from the depths of the ocean. We just... More

Thanks to Malena & Augustin, we spent a great stay with our kids in Rincon Chico. Nature is surrounding all around. Childrens remained under the spell of domesticated animals (sheep and cats) and numerous marine mammals that can be approached along the 15km of Estancia's beaches. Grandiose!
