In the middle of solitary marshlands teeming with fauna and flora, but spoiled by luxury one didn´t expect, along with heartwarming friendliness of the staff, made our stay unforgettable. The guides were superb and there was a wide variation of activities from hikes, boat rides and horseback riding. The food was good, adapted to dietary requests.

The physical and philosophical setting of this luxury ‘safari’ lodge could not be finer. Within South America’s second and one of the world's most important wetlands, the Esteros del Iberá, and part of the save-the-world-wildlands brainchild of a generous person with an earth-vision and a big heart — Douglas Tompkins — the hosteria (lodge) and grounds are truly first class....

Dear Guest, Thanks for your review about your stay at Rincón del Socorro. We are sorry you couldn`t overfly the wetlands, the small plane has its base in Posadas so we are available to offer these flights when it`s staying at Socorro waiting for guests who rent it to arrive and departure from the lodge.

incredible commitment by the owner, Tompkins, to preserve the wetlands and its flora and fauna---great service and food---the guide Domingo was terrific---we stayed in one of the cottages which was wonderful---suggest you take their plane to this remote location---makes us want to next go to Monte Leon

We have travelled extensively throughout the world but our walks and boat ride from Rincon have rarely been bettered. Oma's driving skills were exceptional on the wet and slippery journeys in and out and Mingo was an exceptional guide. Our room was perfect, including the stuffed caiman!, and the food and service was first class. We recommend Estancia Rincon del... More

We've visited gorgeous parks and preserves, we're in love with Mother Nature, and los esteros del Ibera are high up on our favorite place list. It's beautiful and so quiet, except for animals sounds.
